I have a Saphire 4830, but need a single slot cooler that will allow me to use a pci express slot that its covering up.

Any suggestions. This is in an HTPC, so it doesnt have to be the best money can buy.

What PCB design is it? if it's one of the early ones that copied the 4850, a ref. 4850 stock cooler might work. naked pics of the card?

The VRMs aren't set up like a 4850's so no possibility of using a non-modified 4850 cooler.

You might be able to get away w/ using a VF900 too. It's more of a 1.5 slot cooler than a full 2-slot IIRC.

edit.
This might work if it'll mount properly.

A hr-03 mounted so the heatsink extends over the back of the card would work too.
