Default Zalman VF900 on an 8800GTX?

Anyone tried this, it looks like it could fit. I personally think the stock coolers are really sucky, mines gonna come off soon!

The VF900 is not compatible with the 8800 series. Only up to the 7900 series.

A VF900 would look pretty funny on the massive 8800GTX, lol.

Agreed and a half. Do you really wanna go tearing crap off a card you paid THAT much money for? If you really want it cooler, route another fan to blow on it or something but don't go hacking into it.

i don't know if it's the greatest idea to do this, however it should be possible to mount it. it just depends on how inventive you are as i can say with about 95% certainty none of the brackets will be compatible. that means either you have to go really ghetto and zip tie it down or something along those lines or make your own mounting bracket.

though i havent seen a 8800 up close, if the hsf is like the others in the nvidia line, u really need the plastic on top, it keeps the air moving quickly across the top of the card instead of lifting away from it... it has to do with cavity space and Reynolds number, i dont reallly feel like explaining it, JUST DONT DO IT!
