Suggestions for cooling a GX2

384 10
I've sold my 4870 and am acquiring a 9800gx2 (must fold moar
) But I need advice on how to cool it. Lilratt just sold his last fc block, so don't point me towards his sale. Links would be nice, Thanks in advance.

I think a watercooling block would cost more than its worth. Take off the plastic shroud and make sure there are fans blowing over both PCB's and that will drod temps pretty drastically, especially if you up the fan speed. I was able to drop my temps about 10c. I know that sounds a bit far fetched but its true.

Thats a bit tricky but yes you can. You have to turn the PCB's inside out. I think there is a video somewhere but I cannot find it right now. It involves taking it apart, fliping the PCB's and using spacers and bolts. If I find the vid i will repost it.
