Socket 7 gpu cooling

What will follow is a series of analog snapshots (you're all welcome to buy me a digital camera) of 3 Socket 7 sinks, one of which I will eventually use on my GeForce 2 MX400 card. First a shot of all three, please refrain from responding until I get all the shots up so it will have a smooth flow and be easiest for everyone to follow. The ultimate question is which would you use?

OK, somehow the order of my posts is getting screwed, I don't know why. Hopefully everything will still make sense.

The system is just not co-operating here, someone needs to kick it.

How've you got yours attached? There are no holes in my video card to run screws through. I'm planning on using Arctic Alumina with either crazy glue or industrial grade superglue on the corners to make it hold. If I went with #3 then I'd have only half the weight to worry about.

Mines bigger!

Note the small trimmer pot that I used to up the GPU voltage.

Actually that doesn't look too different from #2 in my list of choices.

And here are my Q3A and UT clock settings, it becomes neccessary to drop the GPU speed for 3Dmark to be article free, but these work fine in those two games.

The camera angle makes it look shorter than what it is. It's a Cooler Master AMD approved for Durons up to 800MHz . . .

Can I safely assume that your card, like mine, uses 200 gpu and 166 memory as it's defaults? (Are all 2MX400's 200/166?)

So it's good enough for a 486 then?

BTW, How'd you attach it?
