As far as non stock cooling that will probly wait awhile, too much money for my current budget. The 135 pretty much tops it, the money comes from a refund on memory, I dont have cash to spend really right now.
I was able to dig up a pair of NV Silencer 5 rev3's on ebay for ~$20 shipped, dunno if there's any up atm. they fit perfect on the reference 7800gt's (which to my knowledge there aren't any "unique" layouts for the 7800's). and OC-ing both cards gives rather marginal results in SLI, i ended up running them at stock clocks so the temps were a tad lower.
doesnt that AS adhesive work more-or-less like an epoxy? as in, you'd have a hell of time removing it
or am i mixing up another thing >_<
