    Guys,

    I have a Zotac 9800GT Green Edition Card

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500144&cm_re=zotac_9800gt-_-14-500-144-_-Product

    The fan on this card makes terrible noise at 100% throttle during folding. So I wanted to find a suitable WB for this. I had a Koolance NB waterblock which was lying around unused. I managed to fit it on this card.

    I will be using passive vga ram heatsinks to cool the memory chips. The VRMs were not cooled by the stock heat sink at all as the only thing in contact with the heatsink was the nvidia chip.

    What do u guys think of this?

    Best of luck with the world first WC Green Edition ;). Do you have a decent airflow in your case now when the RAM will lose the (little) cooling from the fan?

    Expensive but good choice. I would also stick some passive heatsinks on the memory chips and vrm's, just to be safe
