  1. Hi all. I had a thread open having thought that i was going to get my 8800 gtx water cooled but i have to buy a new power supply because my present one isnt doing good.

    So instead of a water block for my 8800 gtx i need some advice on an excellent air cooler for my gtx something that will cool the card down quite abit so any suggestions i would apreciate it.

    Also im getting artic silver 5 thermal paste and i am planning to apply it to my 8800 gtx becaus the one i have on now it sooo bad! 75 idle temps i am just wondering can i take of the stock thermal pads from the card at stick as5 on where the pads where. Thanks for the help all
