Default Re: Weird Graphics Problem with PNY 6800GT

I wonder if those VGA silencers work really well at cooling the card. I know after taking apart my BFG6800GT that I think the current cooling solution really sucks. There is only one flimsy little fan cranking around plastic looking heatspreaders.
I've googled and can't find a VGA silencer anywheres. They are as hard to get as 6800s themselves.
I really want to run at ultra speeds badly and I know just a little more cooling will make it do that. I hate being now 15mhz off on the core and core speed seems to be very important on these new cards.
Consoles: Xbox Elite with HDDVD drive and PS3.
