ok, so the noise from my computer is getting on my nerves quite a bit now, so i'm ordering a Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler for the cpu and i was gonna order the Zalman ZM80C-HP + ZM-OP1 Optional Fan Package but i want to know if it will cool the card enough. I used a zalman cooler on my last cpu and it was awesome (dad's using it now in his comp) so i know zalman products are good, i'm just not sure if that's a good enough cooler for the graphics. space might also be an issue inside, hopefully they will both fit!

If CNPS7000 (Zalman's noiseless CPU cooler) is also to be installed, the CPU retention guide needs to be 35mm or farther away from the AGP slot for this product to be installable.
It says that on the site you linked near the bottom. Should help with the space issues ;)

Looks an awesome cooler. I too have a Flower on my CPU and it rocks! (not literally :p)
If the build & cooling quality of that is anything to go by, then the GPU cooler looks a
good buy :D

i was looking into that heatink a while back and found a review where they strapped it onto a 9800pro or 9800xt. it was adequate at stock speeds, but overclocking didn't seem to go well. but they didn't have that optional fan which i'm sure would've fixed that.

ok thanks i'll go for it then, and this may seem a stupid question, but can i use arctic silver 5 on the gpu instead of the stuff that comes with it coz i still have some AS5 left...

yes.. you can use as5..

overclockers need to use the fan which is practically noiseless in order to keep temps acceptable...

and for lockstock.. Loki should be out soon in both agp 8x and pci-ex flavors.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
