    This my true story
    i have 9600 NP (sapphire) 325/400 and with passive heat sink
    i run ati tool and it's only reach 416/500 max core clock
    to prove my max core, then i think to attach additional heat sink and fan.
    It's simple way and also cheap
    I buy an allumunium heat sink (flat) and fan not from the computer shop
    but from electronic parts shop the reason is more cheapest
    And don't forget buy a sillica grease (thermal paste) it will increase condutivity between the original vga heat sink and additional sink that we attach onto it.
    In my work new sink attached upper the original vga sink, and the fan attached upper the new sink.
    And i tight them all. (depend on your design and vga card you have)
    I take the voltage for fan, from the casing voltage (make it paralel)
    Last check, make the new sink have a good conductivity to absorp calor from the original sink. And the fan run properly
    Then put it back to agp slot
    Running the computer open the ati tool and try find max mem core and GPU core
    My result increased up and reach 460/580 max core :eek:
    But the stabil core is 450/520


    Try it with your own risk
    (I hadn't picturize of my project,yet. but latter i'll attached it if i got one)

    So the basic is that you used 2 heatsinks.
    1flat as a base, and a tower with FAN on as second.

    not bad

    pls post some pics:)
