    I've had to take the cooler off my 6950 to fit in my case, i've hence water cooled it (I'm not going to just take off the cooler!). My VRM's are getting pretty hot, I've got a fan on a zalman bracket blowing across my card but it isn't working very well.

    Anyone know a good solution to direct air up under the card? Links to products would be good.

    Full cover block?

    Enzotek heat sinks stuck to the VRMs before you blow the fan on it?

    +1 on the Enzotech sink's, swiftech also make's some nice copper one's. IIRC Enzotech use's better t-tape, installed on my 5870 ~2yrs ago and have never had one fall off :)

    Nice i'll have a look, the card is an asus directcu so no full cover blocks fit. I've just hung an 80mm fan under it with cable ties...
