Hiya, ive been reading nvnews for a while, but just decided to look at the forums.

Meanwhile i had a streak of bad luck, my Geforce3 ti200's Fan has quit on me. Luckfully it started makeing a funny noise, so i went to investigate and then it stoped. I quickly tunred off my comp and the card still works!!!! And then my ram heatsinks fell off heh.

What vga cooler can i get to fix my problem. I thought about a zalman heatpipe one, but it would cost 40$ with shipping : (.

Also, i need a cheep solution because 'I am ready' for the Gf FX Ultra :D

Try here (http://www.thermaltake.com/products/chipsetMenu.htm)

For a gf3 chipset, either the BlueOrb or CrystalOrb will be fine, anything more would be overkill, Ive got a BlueOrb on mine and my core is running at 240, has been for 2yrs+ :D

As to your heatsink, a small spot od superglue will be fine, I had one of my copper heatsinks fall off, I just put it back with a dab of superglue, memory is still running fine at 560 :eek:

should i try to have some sort of paste between the ram and the heatsinks?

Not for the heatsinks on the ram, but for the chipset yes.
