I've heard on a few occasions "Why not put a CPU heatsink on a GPU?". I've always thought it was not a great idea, and would not work. Well, that thought just went through my head again about 5 minutes ago. I decided to give it a try. I took a stock P4 heatsink I had lying around and compared it against my 7600GT. Looks like it will fit. So, I take off the stock HS, put on some new ASCeramique, and attach the P4 HS by screwing through the fins, being careful to keep everything square, and not to crush the core. Everything assembled, lo and behold it works. Load temps don't break 60, when stock load was 67c. Pics coming.
