Cooler size compatibility

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've got an ASUS A8N SLI-Deluxe with two BFG Tech 7800 GTX's in SLI. One of them for some reason is loading at 110 C whereas the other loads around 78 C. I want to buy the best possible aftermarket cooler that will fit for the hotter card. I'm looking at the Zalman VF900 - CU:

It says it's only 30mm tall which seems fine but it says it is 96mm wide and I just don't know if it will be able to sit on my card without going down and touching the motherboard. Does anyone have experience with these who might be able to take a guess as to whether or not this will work for me? I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks.

I'm sorry that I can't answer the size question, so heres a free bump.
I can, however give my thoughts on the overheating. Instead of jumping to buying a new heatsink, try tightening down the one already on it. I've had cards arrive with poorly attached heatsinks. Also try putting AS5 or Ceramique, or Shin-Etsu, or whatever you have, on the GPU die.
