Alright I think this is the best section to post this... but feel free to move.
I've just bought a Zalman VF900-Cu GPU cooler for my Gainward 7900GT 512MB. After examining my card I found out that the Gainward model does not adhere to the standard 7900GT layout. Meaning, my RAM chips are aligned on two sides of the GPU chip, three at each side, instead of sort of 'surrounding' it:
As you can see it's quite a tight fit, and I wonder if it would be safe to carry on mounting the cooler to the graphics card. Normally, the RAM heatsinks would have some space to dispose of the heat, but now there are heatpipe blades running over them by no more than 2 mm. I wonder how warm those will be, and I wonder if it's smart enough to give it a try.
What do you think? Has anyone mounted a cooler like this on a card which had an unusual layout?
