    I just finished installing water coolers ( a Coolermaster Aquagate) to my SLI system, on the 8800GT's. It want a "want it" mod, I was having probs with overheating, and geting major artifacting. It seems to have solved the problem quite well :)
    Question is, on the original cooler system, yje memory chips were also receiving heat sink cooling from the original cooler. Now, I have 2x 120mm fans blowing directly over the cards, and a 140 floor mounted fan blowing onto them, will this be enough to keep them cool or do I need to look at instaling some additional heat sinks? No problems after a 12 hour run, but I would prefer to be safe. Any ideas? :)

    I doubt you would have to worry about adding additional heat sinks, sounds like you have it cooled from every angle as it stands, I have the 8800 GTS in a dell e521 it’s a compact case, and I just added one additional fan. It's been running for almost 3 months now and I have had no issues even playing Crysis.

    Cheers for the reply... the only concern i had was that the mem chips, arranged in a semi circle around th emain GPU, were heat sinked on the original fan. I cannot see that heat build up in the mem would really be that likely, but with these, you never really know. Before the w/c went in, I was starting to get a lot of lockups, black screens, and such like, since the w/c, havent had any (touch wood). I have to admit it does lok a bit weird, almost a bare bones effect, but damn, I love water cooling!
    Hmmm.. Now, can I put a couple of pelts in there? That should be interesting, eh?
