Need a cooler for 6600GT.

  1. I just bought an Albatron Trinity card on Ebay cheap. The owner said it never worked right an now I know why. It has a huge HSF thats so badly designed that it barely makes contact with the VPU. It also extends over the RAM but doesnt make contact with it. The card runs very hot and the fan is the loudest Ive ever heard. I think I can blow dry my hair with it.
    I wanted a VGA Silencer but it looks like they dont have one for an AGP card, only PCIx. Thanks

    If you don't mind, I have had success adhering a standard cpu hsf to a gpu with thermal epoxy with excelent results. You are never going to be out of fans for that hs as you can just screw in another fan. Anything from an old athlon cooler to a p3 933 cooler would do. I got wiki wiki on mine with a solid copper hs (low profile) and ramsinks. The gpu sink alone weighs about as much or more than the card does. Bling!
