Looks to be an 8800gtx. I think all g80 cards have heatspreaders.

Thanks for the input, i was really tempted to do it, but i don't think 4C is worth the effort because the card's clocks seem maxed out anyways without going over 56C loaded. I peeled the eVGA green sticky off, cleaned the remnant glue and ended up with a black polished reference design, which looks better than eVGA's sticker IMO

Old post, but military has kept me busy. I recently pulled the cooler off and polished the heatsinks contact points. Then upon reinstall I see what was meant with the thermal pads. So i put some AS5 on the GPU no prob, but I had to reseat it twice because the RAM chips and VR's had a gap. With a nice spherical dab it managed contact without spilling over. I was concerned about less performance because of poor heat transfer. Results: I can take the core/shader clocks a tad higher to about 785 without BSOD, the mem speed (stable@1100/2200) is the same so no loss there. Is it worth the effort for about 10mhz increase, logically not, but I'm obssessed with getting the most performance out of my hardware so to me personally it was worth it. Plus I learned a thing or two about the cooling system on these. Thanks for the advice.

PS. As soon as I can get my dad's soldering iron, I would like to vmod this card.
