    btw, I take your chips get hot?
    Those on my 8800GTS run 24/7 @ GDDR3-2214 with 2.1v and they don't get hot. Granted there's a Yate Loon D12SL12 @ 5v blowing over them...

    They look great.:toast:
    Use some sandpaper to clean up the edges and especially the bottoms, aluminum warps when you cut it. I made some of those a couple weeks ago, was suprised as to how bad they were warped, after cuting them apart.:D
