I take that back that you can't have a sound card with these coolers. You actually can squeeze one in between the two graphic cards. I had some buzzing action going on with my onboard sound so I put my Audigy back in. Im not kidding though when I say it is a tight fit. Its so tight on the bottom card, the thumbscrews almost touch a few of the transistors on the sound card. Also noticed my idle temps went up about 3*C.

Sure wish the onboard sound didnt buzz, damnit.

Once my 6800GS is stepped-up I will try to convince the parental unit(s) to let me get one.

Lol @ 'parental units'

Nice sig btw - I am bored so I am writing random stuff in my sig that you are reading. You are going to keep reading until my evil plot works. Then you will be my minion and I will take over the world.

Glad i read this, because im getting a 7900GT, and plan to: eventually go SLi / buy the A8N32-SLi / buy aVF900

Yeah, sorry guys to get your hopes up. Maybe the guys over at eWiz were watching this thread, freaked out and upped the price.

About the temperatures in the 2nd card, I find it kinda odd that it would hit such low temps. Have you tried switching the video cards from the slots? And see if that gives you the same temperature readings.

The weird thing IMO, is that with my 6800 GT during RTHDRIBL, that thing hit close to 85c after 2min at 400/1100 and my 6800 GS @ 500/1200 only hits 61c, weird thing.

Th33nil:

I just finished the operation so my AS5 hasn't nearly cured yet. You're absolutley right, that crap they put on there is like plaster or something. Right now I've run ATItool and auto OC'd the cards to 555/1800 with no artifacts. After about 30 mins of running it I was stable on my hot card with 71ºC (from 75ºC before) and 59ºC (From 63ºC) on my cool card.

I am worried about having to lose my sound card to install the cooler; I'm glad you told me about that so I wasn't unplesantly surprised later on. I guess I'll either have to wait for Zalman to make a thinner cooler or just buy an external sound card.

Edit:
Crap, after a little more testing I'm finding that one of my cards is now corrupting the hell out of textures when I run at performance mode. It's only a problem because only ONE of the cards is doing it so I get a really weird flickering when I run a game. (doesn't show up in ATITool) I'll try a few more tests tonight and probably pull the card to make sure I didn't drip any AS5 on anything. Worst case scenario I have to RMA one of my cards (thank god for SLI or I'd have to live without a PC while the cards are in the mail).

Turns out I just made a rookie mistake and must have not seated something correctly because I took out each card one by one and they worked; then I put them back in and everything works again.

Crisis averted

How risky do you think it'll be running my Soundblaster 2ZS with the ZF900CU on that first card? That might just be the deal-breaker for me.

Just a heads up...

SVC has it for 39.99 + 6.83 (Priority Mail) = 46.82
http://store.yahoo.com/svcompucycle/vf900-cu.html

eWiz is still a little cheaper though...
