>> Help, do I need a low profile maze 4?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
When my card is in I have just enough room to fit only a low profile block inbetween the gfx card and the card below it.
Although this is including the fan/heatsink!

So should I be ordering a low profile or standard maze 4? please see attached images of the spaces I'm talking about.

how thick is your current gpu cooler? here is the thickness of both the regular maze 4 and the low profile version
Quote:
Total thickness of only 0.993" thick versus 1.22" thick (25.2mm vs 30.8mm)

The depth between the 1st PCI card and the GPU fan is about 27mm, although if I was to remove the fan wouldnt I get like another 10mm on top of that??
I cant say how thick the cooler is, all I can say is from the fan to the flatest part of the card, its like 11mm.

if you use the low profile maze 4 you wont be able to use any ram sinks on the two mem modules across from the outlets and with the reglular profile the ram sinks BARELY fit

look at this pic see how the ram sinks barely fit under it and when the hose is on its even tighter. now..... think of the same setup CLOSER to the card because of height... it wont fit now will it lol

I thought RAM heatsinks were all BS?
If you were to tell me to use the heatsinks I will just get a standard profile..
post #9 of 14
use heatsinks they arent BS i have tried with and without and i got an average of a 25mhz extra overclock on things. Especially with this X1800XL with the upped voltage to the memory i need something to keep them at a decent temp.

*orders normal profile*
