Mod GPU with CPU cooler? (Fermi Anybody)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I dont know if I should post this under nVidia Graphics Card cooling or here..

But have you ever thought of using a CPU cooler on your GPU? I used to do that back in the GF FX 5000 days.

So what if you could use a modded Tt Big Typhoon heatsink similar to the one above, and reverse the pipes a bit more so they faced upwards, and install it on the GPU. Fixing most clearance and heat issues caused by SLI,

Anybody here done something like that to give it a shot?
