How many ramsinks should I buy?


I'm buying ramsinks for my 9800np. Do I just need 4 ramsinks for the top of the memory modules? Or, how many more should I buy and where would they go? Thanks.

Well, you could put one on the back of the GPU but it is a lot better to just cool the front better in the first place, and as far as I know video cards don't really have any other small chips that need cooling.

That silencer will need a good lapping, at least mine had a crappy job on it.
