That would rock. You would need to fab your own mounting bracket though.

You'd also have to do some extensive modding of the heatsink, like, shave one side down so it fit against the motherboard.

However, I've seen people put Sonic Towers on video cards, so I bet it's possible.

Some guy did that with an x1900xt which was my old card.

I was very happy when I posted higher clocks than him with my water loop.

did you ever run the stock fan the cooler came with? if so, how much of a difference does the aftermarket drop your temps over stock fan?

im not installing mine untill my board gets here.

I never ran the stock fan. I had an extra scythe so I put it on before I booted the machine up. I'm getting 33c right now at stock speeds.
