Evercool Formula 2 VGA Cooler Review

evercool-turbo2

Secret formula?

If you are a PC gamer (or computer enthusiast for that matter), then you no doubt are constantly keeping on top of the curve of the latest video cards the industry is pumping out every three months or so.  Many of these behemoths use up so much electricity and pump out so much heat that the stock cooling of these cards have to keep up with the times.  Even with more robust default heatsinks, there is a lot of room for improvement.  Third-party manufacturers like Zalman, Thermalright, ThermalTake, and Evercool make great heatsinks to replace your card’s cooler.

Many of these aftermarket coolers look “cooler” than stock heatsinks, anyway.  If you have a windowed case, then you certainly want to show off just how awesome you are with a tricked-out VGA heatsink.  Evercool presents their Formula 2 VGA cooler, which appears to have the whole “speed” and “racecar” theme going for it.  Let’s see if it really can tame the heat demands of the latest “hot rod” video cards.
