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.

YGPM. I'll take the OTES and RAMsinks if Chaotic doesn't want them.

Methinks a copper 1u hsf for the core + some Tweakmonster ramsinks would do the trick, no?

If you don't want them, sold to ricercar for his xtreme 5800 modding experiments!

I'm not going to force it on you, but are you sure what you're doing here? DOA 5800s with stock copperheatsinks are probably about as rare as V5 6Ks.

I think ricercar would agree with me that for you to have a working card outweighs his need to play with copper heatsinks?

I'm not in any hurry to "sell" this, so I'll let you two work it out.

If you really don't want it, ricercar Paypal me $5 at bjks1@charter.net and I'll have it out to you the next business day. (conditional on you posting pics of your mods, of course! )

As the man says, I'm just in it for the fun. I'll paypal Rollo and you just PM Rollo with your address where he should send it. I have three working NV30s, so I'm not going to outbid you when your fan is grinding on your only one.

ragejg: Tweakmonster BGA 1.0 RAMsinks were not good enough on my 5700 Ultra DDR-II, so I can't recommend them for the higher-clocked (hotter) 5800 Ultra DDR-II. There were artifacts in 2D, so I shut it down and never even tried 3D.
