    Akasa Freedom Force Review
    _________________________

    Today we are going to thoroughly test and review Akasa's latest GFX cooler which was released a couple of weeks ago, the Freedom Force. The Freedom Force is a bulky, high performance cooler designed to complement the most power hungry GFX cards.

    Knowing Sapphire probally one of them egg shape things.

    Excellent review as always,Maybe if i can pick one of these up for my ailing Sapphire 4870 that has a fan slowly dieing on me ....Just one question why no mention of the ram sinks and VRM sinks?

    Hi H82LUZ,

    We did mention those when describing the bundle. They *may* help lowering the temperature of RAM and VRM chips, but they could never affect the temperature of the card's core. You'll be getting the same temperature reading with them installed or not.

    Got one on my GTX260, it's lovely and quiet and the card does not go much over 50C now as opposed to over 70C before, playing L4D2. Keep the fans on less than half speed too, plenty of scope for bit of overclocking.

    I have a thread about vga cooling mods that go horribly wrong, it's in the gpu forums.
