    Should be good, Silk. From what I've seen, the AC one performs a little better than that Zalman you linked, anyways. The biggest concern is to make sure you get some form of cooling on the VRM. Really, the best cooling you can put on it.

    Hey Nolano, just got it in and it works, albeit idling at 60C, so I won't game on it until I get the heatsink, ordering the AC now.

    Incidentally, for anyone who wants to chat on randomness, Nolano, myself and a friend of ours run an IRC room, the info is in my sig.

    Good to hear. Thinking about ordering the AC S1 myself, as my stock fan doesn't seem to quite cut it. However, I'm going to try a few more things, first, as most newegg reviews say this cooler works very well.
    Because of the orientation of my primary PCI-E slot, I don't think that my graphics card is getting as much air as it wants.

    Should get here on Monday. I have the card installed, the stock cooler keeps it idling at 60C (it seems that Asus doesn't allow you to *actually* change the fan speed; sure you can set it to 100%, but it doesn't actually spin any faster), so I'm liking the idea of my 120mm fan on the heatsink more and more. It's a 3-pin, but connected to a molex adapter, so it's at full speed and very quiet at 53CFM.

    Got it installed, idling at about 40C now, and the highest I could get it with ATItool was 52C, but I haven't tried gaming yet.

    With my 120mm fan zip tied to it, it's huge. Forget about crossfire, that's for sure. But, it seems to really work. I used the 8 ramsinks too, but the VRM heatsinks weren't going to fit, so for now, the VRM is bare, but it came like that, so I'll keep my eye out for something that will work, but I don't think I'll lose much sleep over it.

    Just played UT3 for about a half hour, had GPU-Z running in the background for temps. Highest it hit, at my monitor's native 1920x1080, was 52C, so I'd say it was a success.

    I just got mine... Rigged it with 2 120mm fans.

    30 idle, so far a max of 47 under a one minute furmark run.

    Not to mention... No noise. Normally, I'd start furmark and it would sound like a jet taking off, but now... Nothing.
