Re: best replacement hs/f for a fx5800u
Careful about replacing the 5800 Ultra fansink; it's not just for show. Unlike DDR and DDR3, those NV30 board DDR-II RAMs require some sort of heat sink. You take off the copper from a 5800 Ultra, you must use another RAM cooling solution or you'll kill the memories, dead.
I've tried just about every 3rd party video RAM air-cooling solution, and I've been looking for replacement RAM cooling on NV30 boards since December 2002. The only solutions I found are (a) the aluminum coolers from a dead 5800, or (b) the copper coolers from a dead 5800 Ultra.
Let us know if you find anything else.
