Well, you can always put a Thermaltake Crystal Orb onto there, though you'll get more performance increase overclocking and cooling your RAM...
Check out <A HREF="http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO..." target="_new">http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO...;/A> for the Crystal Orb, and <A HREF="http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO..." target="_new">http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO...;/A> and <A HREF="http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO..." target="_new">http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PRO...;/A> for the RAMsinks (these are made by TweakMonster... <A HREF="http://www.tweakmonster.com" target="_new">http://www.tweakmonster.com&lt;/A> and they're excellent).

Woohoo! Broke the 30-celcius barrier with through the loud and innefficient world of air-cooling! Also, never - NEVER - play with gum in one hand and hair in the other... just trust me.

Have a look at www.ocsystem.com they've got crystal orbs, vantec copper coolers, even a heatsink/ramsink thing from thermaltake and their ramsinks are way cheaper than tweak monster ones. Also Akasa do a nice range of ow profile fc-pga cpu coolers and also one that may well be small enough to fit within the shim on the 9700's find it here http://www.theoverclockingstore.co.uk/productinfo.php?b... or at akasa's website.

Please post in this forum if you fit an interesting cooling option.

Look here, what did he end-up deciding upon anyways. Some people want the easier solution dude - besides, don't ask for anything special, don't get it. Interesting is great - ease of use is for some even greater.

well dude, I am happy with what I decided upon...I read several articles on the memory heatsinks and they seem to fit my needs. the crystal orb will also do the job just fine after reading a couple reviews on it also...I didnt just say oh ok there is something that will work chi ching...I did actually read up on the stuff...neways I did find some zalman heatsinks that were quite cool that used the heatpipe but they are really expensive....besides these the orb is about the only other thing I could find...If I really wanted to get creative I would have purchased a block of copper and milled one out myself but do I really want to put much time into this ...na not really....basically I just wanted it for a little cooling performance gain and something pretty to put back on the gpu after I tore off the shitty Tem material and put some artic silver III paste on it...thanks

but sure post your ideas

I'm glad... its just that I know what a pain it is to try and find that "prefect" heatsink, you know.. I've also got a Crystal Orb on my GeForce4 MX 440 (though I'm upgrading to either a Ti4200 or a Radeon 8500 All In Wonder - and taking the Crystal Orb with).. I'm gettin a non-steammy hot video card now, and with the 120mm fan i just installed, I'm getting great RAM and GPU overclocking (from 305Mhz for the GPU to 370Mhz, and from 270Mhz RAM to 315Mhz) without any problems... And I decided I will wait to install the Tweakmonster RAMsinks on a better card, since I plan on selling this one non-modded. But I've had great experiences with Tweakmonster stuff and build all my systems with products of his (the shims, for one thing, go on every single computer I sell). Anyways, enjoy!
