I need to know and rather quickly whats the best aftermarket heatsink/fan for a BFG 8800GT-OC My fan decided to just freeze today and hit 107c in seconds while in WoW. I shut it down asap of course.
Need something no more then $50 USD b4 shipping and I want cooler then stock period but with good easy instructions/mounting.
Very common 8800GT solution, but.... Probably NOT
what you are looking for as there aren't instructions for mounting on an 8800GT. There used to be a few detailed user instructions floating around forums that you may be able to google. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118001
I put these Zalman VF-900 CU on both of my BFG 8800GT's back from the start for better performing and much quieter cooling than stock. Also added an extra pack of RAMSinks though (only comes with 8, used 12). Very happy with end result, been working well for 1.5 years now.
Here's part of the process:http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/6540/bfg8800gtvf900med.th.jpg
