The heatsinks I used, I purchased from 2CoolTek. I bought the Wing Fin Video Heatsink Kit (4 sinks + Frag-tape) for $10 + shipping. When I tried to put one per SDRAM chip, I quickly realized that it was not going to happen. So, I decided I would go with some sandwich action. I placed two heatsinks on the front side, 2 RAM chips per heatsink. I did the same with the back side of the card. There's not to much more to say about it. I didn't even pull the stickers off the back of the card, I just put the heat sinks right over them.


Cooling Installed

Yup, Here Too

Here are some close up shots before I move onto the performance segment.


Look Damn it!

It's Right Here

We used the "Blue Beast" for the testing.
