I'm hoping someone out there changed out their stock GPU heatsink for an upgrade and has an old one lying around...
I bought a Zotac card from someone who was having an overheating issue. Here's what I found;

I put on an Arctic cooler I had laying around which solved the problem but created a new problem - can't SLI. Can't get the SLI connector on and I can't mount it at the bottom of the case (cooler to high).

Bottom line is I'd like to buy someone's old heatsink...if it's flat...
Check this out - the Arctic Twin Turbo fan is awesome. Furmark temp topped out at 51c.

I've got a couple of those coolers on my 560 Ti's in SLI. They pretty much the best money I've ever spent.

My advice to you is to buy yourself a longer SLI cable, it will probably be cheaper anyways...measure to make sure this will fit, but I've got a 12cm one on mine with no issues. $6 at Amazon.

Genius. Being an American I had no idea that 12cm was long enough. Luckily Google told me that it's 4.7 inches. The SLI cable that came with the MOBO is 2.75 inches. This ought to work nicely. Ordering now. Thanks!

Its great you won't have to give up the AC cooler - they're awesome (have one of those on my GTX 460)
