8800gts question?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys basically i bought a 8800gts and although its not been delivered yet, im unsure as to wether or not it will fit in my computer. Im building a new pc, but dont have enough this month, so for now im jus using new GPu on old computer, and the northbridge heatsink is *cleverly* placed right next to PCIe slot, so im worried the 8800gts wont fit...

Anyone have any tips as to what i could do? I thought i could maybe take off the GPU plastic cover bit, the huge plastic block on top that says BFG 8800GTS etc...would i be able to remove that?

heres couple pics

it should fit. If not, I recoment hr-03 plus. Great aftermarket heat sink. Easy to install. Great temps.
good luck
