Thermalright Shaman VGA Cooler Tested on a GTX 480 with FurMark

Thermalright Shaman VGA Cooler, GeForce GTX 480

The Expreview team has tested Thermalright’s bulky VGA cooler, the Shaman. The torture test includes a GeForce GTX 480 and FurMark 1.8.2:

The Shaman VGA cooler has been able to reduce the GPU temperature by 10°C in a nearly noiseless way. Cool! But this result is far from Thermalright’s SpitFire: the temperature of the GTX 480 GPU does not exceed 66°C with FurMark… Did I miss something?


  • Athlonite

    maybe because the Spitfire doesn’t sit right over the top of the GPU and did this have the IHS removed like with the spitfire

  • die

    pcb temperature are at overheated risk with this coolers? (sorry for my eng but I’m ita)
