    Hi, i managed to screw up the install of the new fan on my graphics card, the thermal pads went **** up !
    So anyone know where i can get hold of new thermal pads for the accelero ? Ive found some 25mm*25mm ones on eBay, will i just have to get them and cut them to right size for the memory chips ? (its for an Asus 6800GT).

    i was also looking at changing my stock cooler for my CPU, its on an A8N SLI Deluxe but im not sure if all fans will fit on it, ie ninja / Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 pro.
    The way my case works is that it has a fan on the side which is inline with the CPU fan, so as one blows the air out , the other sucks it. But the fan on the side of the case has a sort of cover around it which sticks out, basically fan from the side of the case and the fan on the CPU have a sort of tube connecting them so that the air movement is better.
    So i was wondering if there is a good CPU cooler that isnt insanely huge and wont put a hole in my moth ridden pocket!
