You could just swap your PCI cards about so you can put in in the top slot instead, though you'll proabbly have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers if you do this. Your card should operate fine in the bottom slot, but I think you'd be better of useing the primary if possible.

I'm getting a Zalman GPU cooler which includes little heatsinks for the memory chips. I'm probably going to use arctic silver adhesive compound to attach them. Attaching these is probably similar to attaching mosfet heatsinks, which I know a number of you have done.

My question is if any of you used the thermal adhesive, did you do like the instructions say and put silicone over the leads coming out of the chip? Never used thermal adhesive before so looking for some pointers to do it the right way.

Are there any problems fitting an after market cooler for the North Bridge if I get SLI 8800s with an X-Fi card?

Sounds like others have had problems with the longer X-Fi card.

A tiny amount of Arctic Silver 5 to be honest. And I do mean tiny.

Nope, provided its similar in size to the Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II or the Noctua NU6, though you're best off with stock on the SouthBridge if you intend to use an X-Fi.

But AS5 is just paste, right? Won't the heatsinks just fall right off the card? The way the card is oriented, the chips are on the underside of the card.

Sorry I should've elaborated. I used to mix a tiny amount into the thermal adhesive that came with one of my GPU coolers. Otherwise just stick with the raw stock adhesive that came with it and follow the instructions as normal.
