    Okay, I plan on doing some major overclocking on my Geforce4

    MX420 to get it to at least a Geforce3 Ti200 level. What I want to

    know is which HSF to get. I was wanting something like a

    Thermaltake VOLCANO 7+, but that is too large...and since you

    guys are the smartest at this, I was wondering at what to get..I

    already have my ramsinks. I don't care about price or noise as

    long as it gets me somewhere around there. Oh, and this is a PCI

    card since I don't have an AGP slot, so I can move it to the last

    slot if space is needed, which I'm sure will happen...:D Thanks guys! :cooldude:

    With that card, and it being a PCI card, you will never see that kind of performance, you MIGHT get it to the same clock speeds, but it will never be as fast.......

    That being said, I have a Crystal Orb on my ATI card, and it dropped my temperatures by about 20C, so I imagine it would cool that bugger quite good.

    You could always go peltier cooling like Zappy did *shameless pimp*

    Or water cool it like I've seen a few people do.

    That's my advice. Have fun.

    You definitely need to look a chipset coolers rather than CPU ones! A couple that spring to mind are the Crystal Orb which certainly looks cool and does a fair job, and the copper Icicle which is supposed to be pretty good! OCS should have both if you are in the UK.
