    So in conclusion to my Samsung 206BW story, good news :toast:! Everything worked out swell and the owner of the 206BW, a close friend, is very pleased. Why spend $130 for a new monitor when you can fix the old one for less than $10 (and in a few minutes)?

    I have three of these EVGA 9800GX2s and currently have the shrouds and bracket off two of them. It helps cooling a bit but nothing drastic. Much of the heat is routed out the top of the card. I'm going to be selling mine now and am unsure of whether I should put the [useless] shrouds back on or not.

    No plans to. It seems to run at a decent temp that i feel is safe for long term :)

    I'm going to sell it next month anyways so i won't be the one giving it hell anymore.
    the person i am selling it to is going to be powering 1 12" so it shouldn't be that bad.

    So I sold the GTX 280 a few days ago b/c I want something a little newer and with less power draw. :) So here is my XFX 5750 before I sell that too ! lol
    I'll be testing a BFG GTX 285 on Tuesday... :D
