I've been looking at possible aftermarket cooling for my non-reference 465. While comparing the Zalman VF3000 family, the only difference I could really see was the differing chipset heatsinks. It looks as though there isn't any difference between the actual physical heatsink of the A/N/F versions.

Since the non-reference mosfets/ram chips aren't in the same place, I couldn't even use the chipset heatsinks that come with the VF3000f.

So the question is, do you think the other versions will still fit (GPU heatsink only, not chipset)? I'd rather $50 on one of the other ones if it's only the GPU heatsink if it'll work all the same.

My idea is to keep the current chipset heatsinks on, and then just use the aftermarket heatsink itself.
