    you cannot attatch a CPU cooler to a gpu for the following reasons:


    mounting mechanism is different

    height restrictions.

    GPUs are generally much hotter than CPUs. CPUs dont exceed 140W. GPUs are well up to 160Wabove 140W. infact your 6950 is 200W at stock. So even a good CPU cooler will fail miserably on a GPU.

    i never saw the point in Overclocking GPUs.
    but the Accelero Xtreme III is well reputed and even i reccomend that!

    artic freeze wont help much! but you will see 1-5C drop at max!
