Its always nice to see your work BladeRunner
It will be interesting how the card performs after you have modded it. Funny that you mention the heat of the memory, as I have stated in a few threads already, that the main heat problem may be due to the DDRII memory, as it was reported that that has been the biggest problem thus far with DDRII, heat! Instead everyone likes to just go ahead and blame the chipset for the heat
Lets hope that the memory chipsets get better soon.
