Base wasn't as flat as I thought....
I did lap the base to 1000grit...couldn't quite get the courage to lap the GPU
You can see where I had to trim the Ram sinks to fit the cooler. PITA!!
These are the holes I had to file in order to get the sink line up with the holes on the video card.
I had to remove the fan assembly from the Accelero in order to "bend" upward the "wings" of the cooler in order to make a little more clearance.
