Is it possible?
It happens that I have H60 in home laying in dust.

Can it be done?

I believe people have made mounts for the H series for their gpus. I dont know about the 5850 in particular, but I know similar things have been done before.

With the GTX480 you cant cause that pump/block is too big.I did it with the antec kuhler 620 and it can be done too with the H70.THe 5850 its not so different so, sry but i dont think you can.

I understand that this thread is a few months old, but I thought I would share my experiences with mounting the H60 to my 6950, If people wanted to know how to do it or try it.

I tried two different ways to mount the cooler, one modded the cooler so it voided the warranty and the other didn't.

I first way I mounted it was with out modding the cooler. To mount the cooler I make cut a piece of metal about 60mm square and drilled four wholes in it that matched the stock cooler mounting wholes. In order to get around the problem that the cooler it larger then the mounting wholes I rotated the cooler 45 degrees to uncover the wholes. Now using four 55mm m3 bolts, nuts, springs, and the plate on top of the cooler I attached the cooler to the video card. This method worked very well but just didn't look the greatest.

So, I change up the mount method for a more a steadly pleasing method. so I didn't haft to have a metal plate to attach the cooler to the card and have the cooler rotated 45 degrees. I drilled and taped four wholes in the cold plate of the H60 cooler for M3 screws that matched the stock cooler bolt pattern. and attached the cooler with the screws and the springs on the back of the video card. This way you can still see the Corsair on the cooler and it just looks better in my opinion.

Now for the temps. At idle it sits around 35 degrees C and maxes out about 55 degrees C with a case temp around 30 degrees C. The card is over clocked to 920 and the voltage is set to 1.155 volts. Well, I just wanted to share my experiences just in case someone else wanted to try it.

If any would like to see pics just ask and I will snap some for you and post.
