Ruined my 6600GT tonight
Bought it 6 or 7 months ago for $155 or so, prices really aren't going down on the 6600GT.
Anyways, I thought it'd be cool to overclock it, but I my idle temps were 52 and I was about 75 under load, so I bought the Zalman VF700 for it.
Removed my old fan, installed this monster fan, and they did say it takes up a PCI slot, but it takes up a PCI slot and then some.
I have my PCI-E slot, then a PCI slot below it, and then firewire cables below the PCI slot that connect to the motherboard.
I started my computer without realizing that those cables were blocking the fan. I didn't realize because it was a tight fit next to the PCI slot below it, then the cables, then my soundcard below that and I was just in a hurry to go test it out. So I basically turned on my PC with no fan for my video card, screen flashed for a second then went black.
There's my story of how I screwed myself out of a $200 investment tonight.
