    I'm putting a VGA Silencer on my 9800PRO 128MB. Will that cooler be sufficient for me to be able to use higher than 9800XT stock speeds while still cool?

    I also found some vga memory heatsinks that i can use, they cost $10 (aluminum), or there are copper ones for $4 more ($14) and what would I use to put them on if i didn't use the tape?

    would these work?, or are they unnecessary?

    And does anyone have a guide to installing the VGA Silencer on a 9800PRO 128MB?

    That will be plenty of cooler to do the mod. As for the the mem sinks I am pretty sure you have to use the thermal tape. Here is a artical on the silencer, it might help you might not.

    there is a really good description coming with the silencer and cooper heatsinks are a must have for xt speeds

    The installation of the Arctic Silencer is pretty straight foward. No worries pal. :)
