My System Specs

Default Taking apart the 9800gtx cooler

I decided to open it up and got foiled by a screw.. the fan is a delta fan which sorta explains the loud noise it makes when at 100% fan speed, I haven an idea for some one though, if you can remove the plastic outside you could probably fit a 60mm fan on the fins easily if not mcguyver a 80 mm fan onto it. It might be a good way to get a few degrees temp drop for really cheap.

I got an accelero for my video card so i figured why not check how the cooler was made.. personally i think the design is sorta stupid, another fan should help a lot.
