My System Specs


Man- those mosfets and ramsinks on the 8800's are hell- the TIM one the stock GPU coolers use must be pretty damned greasy because I cleaned and cleaned last time with 100% alcohol and still couldn't get all of the heatsinks to stick. That's why I just bought a full coverage stealth- tired of those little buggers falling off everytime I swap some parts out. I know I could've used the adhesive but I'd like to be able to RMA the card if I had to. Funny though- the newer Swiftech mosfet sinks have a silver sticky TIM instead of the white stuff they had before- must be an improvement because they stick pretty good.
