    if the heatpipe ends at the northbridge then probably not,if it passes through to another set of fins/heatsink, i would try to clamp/cut/solder the end, then it would still (hopefully) be functional.

    not sure, but i guess it would work, as all the heat from the southbridge just goes to the nb, would probably keep both cooler. kinda related, i was testing the heatsink i put on with a blowtorch first to see if the pipe was still working after bending, heat transfer from the base to the fins...

    Dual Monitors

    if theres a few games you play a lot they may work with softth, any vid card will work for the 3rd screen. edit - it may also work for 2, you just wont have a left or right screen.

    Horizontal span games in Win7 and Vista!

    yeah i bet it would cost a fair bit lol, atm this setup didnt cost anything, so cant really complain, and the edges arent that bad, when your playing your still focusing on middle screen, just makes it soo much more immersive.

    on 2 i can see it being a bit weird, but 3 is pretty awesome imo, span display should have been left in vista/7, at least games might support these resolutions better.

    Horizontal span games in Win7 and Vista!

    thanks, although still a pain to setup, i wonder if these problems would happen on eyefinity too? tf2 is apparently messed up after an update not long ago . . . stuff gets bigger/smaller as you look up/down, including hud/menus. still i think this functionality would be easy to have...

    aye, but it appears no not on my system, with or without softth it just crashes after the intro with any res above what is set for desktop. (1280x1024) using the launch options to set res, -novid -32bit -windowed -noborder -width 1280 -height 1024 having nothing in the launch option and...

    yeah softth isnt working for me so far, windowed across all 3 is the most iv gotten atm, and thats without softth, it dies when trying to enable third monitor, most i can figure out is 7 uses the main card to render across all 3, the nvidia card is only recieving output from main gpu, can run a...

    Horizontal span games in Win7 and Vista!

    bumping for info, is it worth installing xp to use span mode?, or is there an alternative iv missed? like hacking eyefinity to work with any card, as eyefinity is really just spanning monitors to give one big juicy res.
