It comes with fan clips to mount 120mm and 140mm fans but for the low profile profile fans like the Ultra Sleek Vortext 12 and Ultra Sleek Vortext 14, you’ll have to acquire those clips from Prolimatech.

The card used for testing this cooler is the Gigabyte Radeon R9 280X 3GB OC (GV-R928XOC-3GD) with Windforce, it’s also the card used for load testing the cooler.

More details of the cooler at the official product page.

Temperature

For the load test, I ran Furmark’s Burn-in test for 5 minutes.

Card Load (°C)
MK-26 – Dual Fan 54
MK-26 – Single Fan 63
GELID Rev. 2 Icy Vision 64
Gigabyte Windforce 75

Please do not try to run it fanless with a 250w card. You’ll probably get away with a 150w card or less but certainly not a 250w card.

The Verdict

The MK-26 is a stunning product but comes at a rather hefty RM 269 (approx 80 USD) but it’s well worth it because it looks really beautiful.

Just bear in mind that you’ll still have to factor the cost for a fan or 2. Size wise it’s huge, a tower casing like my N200 couldn’t fit a GPU with the MK26 on it. My BitFenix Phenom-M accomodates the cooler comfortably.
