Thanks. I just updated my folding machines a few months ago, finally adding my Q9400 on the SMP client (with passcode!!!) and now we're moving along a bit faster.

I've actually bought a 120mm and 80mm version of these fans from pc case gear.

They're sitting at my parents place at the moment awaiting a new...

Heat pipes exchange heat by dumping from the high heat source, to the material inside, which gassifies/boils/whatever. With the card installed in a tower case, this unit will be hanging upside down, with the graphics card above, like normal. All this means, all the fluid inside the heatpipe, gravit...

Just so that everyone knows. Macrumours are now on our threats list and are steadily increasing their production.

Furthermore we can't expect General [M]ayhem to just roll over and die as we come up behind them.

So we've now got even more incentive to stir up our folding team.

It actually should be fine to install it in any orientation, assuming gigabyte have used good quality heatpipes (which they surely have to some extent). Good heatpipes actually do not rely on gravity to circulate the fluid inside the pipes. Of course gravity still has an effect but it has been found...

It is possible on the ultra-D board. In fact I and several others on this forum have already set systems up in this way. You just have to shift the jumper blocks and then you can plug the card into the lower slot with no problems. Just as a word of warning about using the passive zalman chipset hats...

Yeah, that dosn't look bad. Especially if that board will support some overclocking.

Hey, I just thought of something. I wonder if you can just use the lower PCIe x16 slot on the DFI board for the graphics card. Then it would all fit nicely. The passive chipset cooler, the vga silencer, it would be perfect.

Time to go check the online manual.
