8800 GTX question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys and gurlz. I plan on getting an 8800 GTX to replace my dead 8800 GT.

I have all the heatsinks for the voltage regulators and enough ramsinks for the ram, but I have one quesiton. What is needed to cool the chip circled below. Can I get away with using a ramsink on it, or do I need something bigger?

A ramsink should be fine.

Cool, thank you. I've got about half a million zalman ramsinks lying around.

BTW: Odd question, but do you play css?

r u ditching the stock cooler? i think ram heatsink would suffice if your fan is powerful and directs good amount of airflow to its surroundings

Lol, nope. I've been asked that before. Apparently some punk's gone and stolen my name.

I was askin because we have very similar rigs. I was gonna ask you to run some benchies. I'm curious to see how much I'll gain going from a 8800 GT to a GTX.

Oh, lol.

It won't be a whole lot better, but then again, I haven't seen much in the way of CSS benchmarks.
