    Floors are pretty could, so it would definitively help bring it closer to room temperature, which makes a huge difference... also, the area is pretty small

    wow i forgot about this thread... heh if this was a car forum i'd have loads of stuff. My most recent ghetto mod is with an xbox360, i'll post it during the day... as my phone has no flash and it sucks when it comes to picking up light.

    if you had sleeved the cables, and attached the cooler by glueing it/cutting a small piece out of the VF-1000 on each side where the clips should attach, it wouldnt even belong in ghetto mods, but in sexy hardware, i guess;)

    The PCI bracket on my 5970 is buggered. It will never go all the way in due to the case design. And Ive bored the screw holes in previous attempts to force it in.

    SOLUTION?

    Those cheap crappy games came in handy!

    When that has happened to me I just push the back of the case in a bit and it moves enough so that it allows you to start screwing in the screw. Once it's in, that's it.
