It's really fun to have this thread. The first computer I built was a 486/66. I didn't know what I was doing, and shorted out the building when I plugged in my PSU. For whatever reason, that same night, a family friend came over who happened to have a voltmeter & he helped me find what went where (before it was idiotproofed). I like to think of this forum as my random guy with a voltmeter.
Today, I added an HR-03 and swapped out my Aquagate with a Zalman 9700. I made the terrible mistake of buying a 92mm Tornado for the HR-03. This fan is about as loud as my six 80mm 89CFM fans together. I need to do something about it.
Here are some photos; the one of the stock 8800 HSF makes me sick to my stomach:
**EDIT: Notice how the Tt Spirit II no longer fits on the SB. In fact, I had anticipated this and bought a superior SB HS, but it didn't fit either (holes didn't match). In the end, I lapped the stock NB HS, cut the heatpipe and plonked it on the SB with some AS5. I think this will be adequate because I have a couple of case fans directly pointed in that area, and the SB wasn't getting as hot as NB was. Nevertheless, I am only conservatively overvolting the SB.
Sorry for the long post.
