    Can anyone recommend a good PCI slot fan. I intend to use it to cool down my 6800gt ram chips.

    I take it your case airflow is naff? If so:

    Vantec Spectrum Fan Card (FG-004-VA)

    My 6800GT @ Ultra has no ramsinks! Just good case airflow!

    My case airflow is cak. I have a VGA fan cooler and some of the ram sinks dont get any airflow over them :(

    Therefore I'd like to just cool gfx card.

    The Vantec Spectrum Fan Card looks like it will help a lot. Cheap too!

    LoL... bought one of those cheap things ages ago for my old, old PC. Didn't know what it was doing apart from making a noise. Think it was £3 not well spent to be honest.

    If cooling is an issue, get yourself a 120mm fan and try using that Zalman bracket to mount it and encourage better airflow.

    I will probably do the bracket thing.
