That thread was a good read, but sadly the VRM issue kills an awesome GPU cooler.

I'm not cutting my stock coolers and throwing away my lifetime warranty.

Best to sit and wait for another option, someone will find a better way to cool the VRM without disfiguring the stock cooler.

I sent both ThermalRight and Arctic Cooling an e-mail regarding that thread over at Techpowerup I didn't recieve a reply, but they should know for future applications they should look at what they're already working with.

I still can't believe the guy paid $118 dolllars US for the HR-03GTX..."shakes head"

I really that swiftech product it could be a real winner if someone can get installed with the HR-03 GTX.

Apparently the Extreme GTX is readily available in the states?

A quick update CanadaComputers is indicating stock and is slightly cheaper than NCIX.com, if you happen to pick one up let us know.

Linky: Canada Computers - : Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME GTX280 For Nvidia GTX 285/280/275 & 260 Graphics Card.
