  75%   
Abstract: The Evercool VC-RHE Formula 2 weighs in at 232 grams, stands 35mm above the GPU (it will occupy one additional PCI slot worth of space) and uses a single 80mm fan to quietly keep a broad range of mainstream videocards running cool.

Information on Frostytech's test methodology is available here.
Heatsink Front:
The eleven bladed impeller on this 10mm thick 80mm fan creates a moderate amount of airflow through the aluminum cooling fins. The fan rotates at 3000RPM and is powered by a standard 3-pin motherboard fan header which supports RPM monitoring. When installed, the Evercool VC-RHE Formula 2 VGA heatsink will occupy one additional PCI slot worth of space adjacent to the videocard.

Heatsink Edge:
The aluminum fins are 0.3mm thick and spaced 1.5mm apart. A chrome plastic fan shroud helps direct exhaust airflow down onto the VGA memory which is located adjacent to the GPU.

Heatsink Top Side:
Two 6mm diameter nickel-plated copper heatpipes wind their way from the copper base block to the stacked aluminum fins. The entire RC-VHE VGA heatsink is 35mm thick, 150mm long. The heatpipes are soldered to the copper base to reduce thermal joint resistance.

Heatsink Lower Side:
The mounting posts are 2.0mm thick and extend 11mm. The four posts are fixed to the back of the VC-RHE VGA heatsink and require a videocard with holes spaced 53.3mm around the GPU.

Heatsink Base:
The copper base measures 39 x 33mm in size. The surface finish is good, and perfectly flat in both axis. The four mounting posts around the base block are space 53mm apart equilaterally. The copper is 2mm thick, the heatpipes are what conduct the heat from the GPU to the surrounding aluminum fins.
