Well i got my case fans setup to circulate the air. In the side onto the cpu and out the back. So the air will get circulated. I like the idea of how the zalman is open, as opposed to an enclosed heatsink surrounded by plastic, reducing circulation. And the zalman cools the ram on the card around it to where the air is free so
Instead of buying a new VF700(fatal1ty one) i've decided to save the precious money, what with christmas looming, and reuse the vf700cu off of my 9800pro (no longer in use) and just buy new RAm sinks. Cos i can't get em off without loosing the stick etc.
