Im going to be upgrading from my basic Saphire stock cooling which consists of a fan with some copper around it and a small copper film on top. My card runs at an average of 69C and this just wont do any longer. I was wondering what will give me the best results? I need the site to allow paypal echecks as I dont have credit cards and refuse to wait for money orders to arrive. Thanks to anyone who can help me :D

there are several companies that will do GPU cooling, coolermaster and thermaltake are two of the best for passive cooling, if you are really serious about cooling you might want to consider water cooling.

Would you reccomend removing the video card to work on it or doing it while its inside the PC?

Definitely remove the card first.

The Zalman is one big honkin cooler with lots of parts.

I just replaced the fan on my 9600 with an IceBerq 4 set. Very nice and easy to install. Came with 4 ram sinks too. ;)

I really wanted the Artic cooler but it wasn't compatible with a 9600. :mad:

I wouldn't call a heatsink with a fan "a lot" of parts :rolleyes:

The heatsink is massive though... but then we all know the best heatsinks are those that weight as much as the bumper from a '57 Chevy :D

I hear that :D

But in all fairness the Artic Cooler isn't really "universal". The backplates do not fit 90% of the applications :(

Not a problem if you like to customize things via a dremel :D

Dremel I do have. :D

I was almost gonna do the heatsink mod and get a copper 1U heatsink and fan and just modify it for the card via dremel. ;)

Alas, not enough time for fun things like that. :) Maybe when the IceBerq dies..
