I know I am thinking of getting a windows unit for my room. When I had new hvac put in about year ago I had them put a bigger vent in here because its the hottest room in the house, but its not working.

Shady side is freezing and this side is so hot. Old lady freaks out and is cold natured so I end up sweating while gaming.

Quick update - the package says clearly that mounting plate, ram and vrm heatsinks are included. What is much more difficult to see is the little fine print that states they are not included for the GTX 480.

So now I have to find them and wait for them to arrive.

This is great. I can't locate a US dealer who carries these parts. I'm going to wind up ordering them from HK off AC's website - is that Hong Kong? Seriously?

Crap.

Edit: be easier to make them.

I really like the way you think.

Looking forward to these "Made By Grey" custom copper RAM sinks.

Seriously though- I think you're right, they'd likely be easy to make.

Few more phone calls and wait for a response from AC first. Superbiiz had the only cooler I could find and it shows out of stock since I bought it, so most US dealers don't even have this yet.

Now its sitting on my desk lookin all pretty and shiny and badass and I can't )*(&()^T&&RF^U& use it.

Uh-oh... pissed of silverback! HIT THE DECKS!

Honestly though, you've got reason to be mad. That's pretty screwed up. They should have stated that on the website, that the sinks weren't included. Little bit of false advertising there, imo.

Hope you get this sorted soon, buddy.

I'm not sure she actually got one, but it's worth a shot.
