I'm pretty excited mostly to see you bring that MCR120 back to life.

Word of caution on the Heatkiller GPU blocks. Make sure every screw is down tight (not overtighten but you understand). I killed a GTX 280 by missing a single screw around the actual chip (3 out of 4=dead by overheating within a minute)

I had no idea why the LED went red. The block was cold to the touch, but the transistors on the back of the card were burning hot.

thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to be careful. :thumbs:

I have replaced the TIM on all three cards before with the stock coolers, so i am sure everything will be alright.

quick question though, did you use thermal pads or paste on the memory chips on the block side? the instructions say to use paste, but i have never heard of that before with any other blocks...

I was looking through a review of a 5870 block today and it mentioned that the memory chips used paste. So, I guess it's not unheard of, just unusual.

Question: is a 280 longer than a 5870?

thanks. :-)

and yea, they are both awesome fans, the enermax because they are good fans that also look amazing, the s-flex's because they move a ton of air with little noise and last forever.
