Like the title says, what cooler??? Just bought a TT duorb today and found out that it didn really fit into the graphic card. So what other cooler can be fitted into the card?? Anyone with same card as mine gives some opinion??

Duorb works great!

You just have to use the extra 2 aluminum things that extend the mounting holes on the cooler.

The Duorb SHOULD fit, and it's one of the best coolers for the 88gt IMO.

If you can't get your DuOrb to work, you could also try the Zalman VF1000 Led. Works great here!
Can't give you temperatures right now because the card is voltmodded and produces a lot more heat then normal ^^

Its the capacitor and the sides is blocking the duorb from getting put in place. Clearance wise its cool. Its the sides. XFX 8800GT is the alpha dog edition. Factory overclock. So the design wise is different from the original 8800GT

You can wait for this one:
T-Rad²




Or, you can get one of these:
Thermalright HR-03 GT.



I currently have the HR-03, but I'll be upgrading when the new one comes out.

It uses a reference PCB, so it is the same.

Do you have the Duorb orientated correctly kind of like this:
