    Since you don't have active cooling, you'd need more heat radiative area to maintain the same temperature.

    Just a heatsink block is called passive cooling. There are no moving parts, heat just radiates off the fins. Active cooling is usually a fan, but by definition is a method of cooling that requires something to move or involves moving parts.

    I got a Artic Cooling VGA Silencer Rev 3 on my 9600 Pro EZ and it's keeping it really cool. (its active cooling)
    Maybe you forgot thermal paste or sumthing like dat.
