Get the D-tek Unisink if they still make it for the 8800GTX. Or Enzotech ramsinks

I would go with the unisink for 10 buck for sure.

I've got the unisink on my GTX and it cools it pretty well. It has decent contact with most of the ICs and VRs. BUT it has no contact at all with a few ICs. Its possible that because I modded it slightly (to fit the MCW60) that it made the board bend, but the only customer review also says it bent the board. For $10, I say get it and just play around with the screws to make sure the board isnt bent.

Personally I don't like the look of the UNIsinks or the idea that they have to be aligned just right. But then again Ive never compared one with the individual sinks option.

Anyway I really liked the copper Enzotech sinks I bought for the RAM and the MOSFETs on the GTX. They stick down very well and provide good cooling with some airflow. You can see a pic of them in my for sale thread of the 8800GTX. I think Captn Vortex has them on his in his forsale thread too

Ah man if only we were called all these call-sign names at work-lol!! My supervisors would have a fit

Heh, nice. Actually the heatsinks in mine are the Swiftech Ramsinks. They DO NOT stick on well though....so I used some Arctic Silver Thermal Epoxy....I cant ever remove them now though, otherwise they will probably rip the ramchips off the PCB....

hehe, I've seen other pople with that problem and three fixes ive seen is either

a) a very small dab of super glue in the corner to hold it on

b) a mix of Artic silver epoxy and there favorite thermal paste

C) buying thermal tape

anyways thanks for the suggestions guys, im just gonna grab the uni-sink :D for $10 I think its avery good deal and I dont plan to upgrade my 8800GTX for another generation or two of video cards so its not like it will go to waiste, and by then I'll be willing to sell out the $30 for a different kit of heat-sinks.
