Cooling GPU with a volcano 11?
 
Ok so say i have this extra volcano 11 cooler cause i already ordered a volcano 12. And say i wanted to use this volcano 11 to cool my AGP card (9800 pro). Questions:

A) would it be effective to overclock the card alot?

B) I assume it would need a support

C) how hard is it to remove the stock HSF on the 9800 pro?


Thanks!

Thanks!

seems i am answering alot of your questions..lol
yes u can use it..... and yes it should help with gpu mhz...but of course that may raise internal temps as the extra warm airflow would be spread around the case more by a faster fan(obvious i think).
if you can i would support it from the underside.

heat the heatsink with a hairdryer and remove the clips holdong the heatsink from the back side of the card first . you should be able to gently wiggle the heatsink with the clips removed if it is ready to pry off...carefull with the hairdryer you don't wanna fry anything...use a creditcard or some sort of protective materiel to ensure that you don;t knock some thing off and pop'er off....if ya wouldn't mind please post markings on the gpu...wether r360 or radeon9800 markings. i am rather curious.
