Default Re: Installing the Accelero GTX280 on a eVGA GTX285 SSC

You can see in the below picture that the chip is somewhat larger than the heatsink area on the cooler. I was a little disapointed when I saw this. It may not make any difference, but I think that it needs to cover the entire IHS of the VGA chip.

Here you can see the overhang of the chip IHS under the Accelero heatsink.

A shot of the clearance

Ram sinks installed. There seems to be a sight clearance issue with the top edge ram sinks and the cooler. I will try and get some other pics later this weekend. I think I may have to do some trimming of the ram sink pins to get the issues resolved.

Last one for today. I will have to file the mounting holes on the SB sink to get it installed. I will post more as I go.

Catch you on the flip side!
