Default Re: replacement 5800U Blower

I'm concerned that 'normal' RAMsinks aren't going to be sufficient for the DDR2 at 500/1000, and waiting for the Cool Matic FX RAM blocks to get back in stock. (I left the stock RAMsinks on the 5800 non-ultra so I wouldn't have to worry about DDRII for that experiment.)

Is that a PNY?
