PowerColor HD 7850 SCS3

eTeknix is revisiting their review of the passively cooled PowerColor HD 7850 SCS3 so they can strap a few fans on the card and see how things go from there.

Recently we took a look at one of those as we reviewed Powercolor’s HD 7850 SCS3 passively cooled graphics card and if you haven’t already seen that then we encourage you to check that review out here. However, we had some feedback about the product with readers and Powercolor themselves enquiring whether we could test it with fans to show how effective the heatsink design really is. Today we are going to do exactly that as we put the PowerColor HD 7850 SCS3 through its "thermal paces" in passive mode, with a 120mm fan and with a 140mm fan.
