Default Re: My BFG 6800GT dying? (Unique situation)

yeh, from what i've seen all the 6800 GT's and Ultra's have been pushed high with the stock coolers, i'd be afraid for mine if i didn't have this Zalman on it. I've seen so many "my 6800 GT/Ultra is dead" threads that i really think they had performance for the short-term and not quality for the long-term in mind when they designed the stock cooler, if you take one off and apart, it's crazy how small the aluminum block is, it truly seems inadequit
