As most of you already know, i own a Gigabyte GeForce 6600Gt. Well, again, im sure a number of you know the heat this thing produces. Well i, myself, hate when something is above 45C Idle so i went out and bought a Zalman ZM80D-HP heatsink for my card. The temp didnt drop much,it went from an idle of 55C to about 44C Idle.
So to my point, when i play games now it pretty much evens out at 55C running. i think this may be do to the way the computer guy at the store put my heatsink on. Take a look at this:
He said he had to put it on this way because the way the chip sat on the board in a diamond more then just flat out square. Anyway, Does this look right to anyone else? im a bit sceptical about it myself..
