    I bought a Zalman ZM80-HP :D but i didnt like the eerie silence that came from the card, so a whacked in 2 80mm fans :clap: Simple! I also had a thermaltake copper cooler on before and used the memory heatsinks off that. With it the card hardly gets hot! :hip:

    actually i was thinking of doing the exact same thing, but also with a TEC. Glad to see someone else did it :)

    got any temp #s (differences) ?

    no temps cuz i destroyed my thermometer :sigh: but it increased from 11000 point to 12600 on 3dmark! so it seems to be a bit of an improvement. The zalman on its own improves performance but adding the fans helps it a lot as the surface temp of the cooler did get a big hot and now is probably 28c but a rough estimatoin :D . I can now push the core to 330 mhz which is quite respectable :cooldude: but memory wise i need some better heat sinks as i can get 610mhz but they could go a little further :rock: Anyone know of some good ram coolers? Much obliged :)

    Can you use that with a GF4 4600 as I would love to get my system as quiet as possible and if it does do you need those fans if you are not overclocking it?

    Yeah its fine to use on its own. I just added the fans to get better overclocking frequencies. You can buy them from www.overclockers.co.uk for around £35 :D
