Newegg is okay in not available on amz. Not looking to buy the most expensive, just for the hell of it... like
some of you dudes.. of course, for all I know, these things are a couple bucks...

And just so we all understand - this is not a workstation that I intend to keep as my main beast for years to come...
I will be building a new workstation - probably by summer - that will truly be something to not be ashamed of. A
minimum of four 600-series cards and maybe one or two of them being 690s... Actually four 4GB 670's will likely
do the job just fine... we will see. Anyhoo - I want this mod to be a stepping stone of sorts. I have built every pc
(the last 4 were all dual-cpu workstations) since my 486 days -- but I have never dabbled in water-cooling or doing
this much stuff to my PCs... in other words, if I completely screwed this thing, it would not be the end of the world.
I have the resources to quickly replace workstation - if all goes to hell. But it would be great to get feet wet with this
mod, have everything go swimmingly, and is a backup workstation for years to come.

Enzotech has some. I'm not sure what GPU you have (Fill out your signature rig in My Profile wink.gif Up top ) but some have their own custom kits.

That being said, the enzotech micro heatsinks are available on sites like frozencpu or PPCS. There's other manufacturers that make tiny heatsinks, up to you to find the best ones hehe

Good choice. Ive always used Arctic HS kits. Great quality and made for the job.

Yes, Furmark is just known to overstress the card. For these kind of applications, I recommend only 20 minutes tops in running them. So I really don't know what a 12-hour run can do to the longevity of your card.

I recommend not running it. EVGA OC scanner is the only overkill program that I would actually recommend, as it actually can find instability, unlike furmark.

http://www.amazon.com/Cosmos-Copper-Cooling-Heatsinks-cooler/dp/B00637X42A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360209696&sr=8-1&keywords=cosmos+heatsink Try this, they are copper heatsinks as copper will disperse heat a lot more efficiently than aluminum. You'll need a fan directly on the VRM as most of the cards now will require some sort of VRM cooling; you will get instability with your cards as the VRMs will get very hot especially if youre overclocking. If you look a couple pages back i think i posted my cards with the cosmos copper heatsinks on them; they are low profile and come with thermal mounting tape already on them. Im not sure if you can get away with just the direct fan cooling; and no heatsinks... but i just got them anyways for the life and stability of my cards. Before direct VRM fan cooling my card would idle at 31C load at 61C ish... but now with an 80mm Noctua NF-R8 fan positioned right on top of the VRM's; they now idle at 23C and load at 55C.

I honestly dont think you can get away without cooling the VRM's with some sort of fan. You can slap these heatsinks on the VRM's and the VRAM

I dont use it at all.

Gigabyte actually advise their card owners not to run it.

Heaven Benchmark and 3Dmark11 are more than enough stress your card and check for stability.

I think that both Nvidia and ATI recommend their users not to run it.
