My System Specs

Default WTB: Single-slot GT heatsink (8800/9600/9800)

The fan on my PNY Verto 9600GT heatsink just died. Yay. Goodie gumdrops.

Anyway, the pickle is this: I've only got one slot's worth of space for this card so third-party coolers are out. What I need is a stock 8800GT, 9600GT or 9800GT single-slot heatsink that is of the half-card variety because the caps on my 9600GT are raised. I should also note the 8800GS and 9600GSO also had certain heatsinks that would be compatible. The half-card sinks only screw in at the four holes around the GPU core.

Do you have an 8800GS, 9600GSO, 8800GT, 9600GT or 9800GT with a third-party cooling solution and are left with a useless stock heatsink sitting around doing nothing and looking not-all-that-pretty? If you do, then mewants!

Here are a couple images I found of the kind of heatsink I'm looking for:




I switched the pictures up a bit. The top one is an EVGA 9600GSO that looks like it has a full-length heatsink, but in fact, the back third of the heatsink is merely a shroud. So that should probably fit over top of the raised caps on my card.

Thanks for looking!

I am still looking,
For a single-slot heatsink,
Local is preferred.

Haikus are easy,
But sometimes they don't make sense,
Refrigerator.

It's hard to believe,
Nobody has the heatsink,
That I'm looking for.

Oh my heatsink fan,
Why hast thou forsaken me,
I wish you would work.
