I'm hoping improving the cooling I can get my GTX 285 clocks back up and reduce the core temps considerably.
Its all ordered, got the scythe kit coming, just got to work out the best way of drilling the holes for extra mounting holes on the NVIO as I dont have a dremmel
use thermal epoxy.
I dont want anything permanent
Yep, non-permanent is nice. Either drill one hole much closer, or move both holes closer. Which ever leaves you to do less modifications on top (of the heatsink).
Has anyone thought of using one of these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=240&products_id=25607
edit: Ah. Too high. Might work under the Thermalright though.
That was the first sink I though of using with Accelero, before it was released. Didn't know then that it was too high, but it would also need quite a lot of modification to get the mounting feet to fit.
Just noticed that was the new GTX 285 version:
GTX 260/280 version is only 10cm high and would fit nicely (with lots of dremeling around core area).
Although, you could cut the VRM head and NVIO head off and use just those,
