yeah itll fit on the gts, but its really useless, itll only drop your temps down a few degrees, you can get close to the same results just by applying some good thermal paste on the gpu and putting the stock cooler back on. the 8series coolers are pretty decent.

Thats a right on idea. I was planning on getting a 12gram tube of MX1 and using it on the cpu gpu and northbridge if the hs isn't too much of a pain to take off and put back on.
