For aftermarket graphics card cooling there are two real options. Air cooling systems are isolated to the card itself and increase the weight while watercooling kits have tubes and radiators ran elsewhere and weigh less on the card itself. Both are very viable options for cooling off the latest cards that have stock cooling with room for improvement. It is important to make sure if swapping cooling solutions whether or not the warranty would be voided, and decide if it is a risk you are willing to take on. Up for review this time is the Prolimatech MK-26 cooler. The MK-26 uses a large heat sink with six heat pipes for air cooling on the GPU core and smaller heat sinks to cool the other components. The cooler doesn't come with fans so Prolimatech also provided two Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 fans that are only 15mm thick will double ball bearings, 60,000-100,000 mean time between failures dependent on temperature, and push air up to 98 CFM / 0.9mm H2O at up to 18 dBA on a 17-blade impeller! These are great statistics that should allow the cooler to run very quietly.
The design is similar to the MK-13 while weighing slightly more, likely due to the more complicated plumbing of the heat pipes and increased size. The MK-26 has grown to 257x146x47mm over its predecessor the MK-13, which measures out at 205x100x43.5mm approximately.
