Will the Zalman heatpipe (the 80C one - grey/silver) work with ramsinks? I ordered OCZ copper ramsinks (not the flower ones). Hoping I'll be able to fit them under there. If not, I'll have to sell the Zalman and get me a 1U cooler or something.

I think it will fit because the Zalman heatsink is raised a little by a small block that is in contact with the GPU.

Hey, there's no better way to find out than trial and error :) .

Hi,

You can install ramsinks on the front side of heatsink, but you will have no way to install ramsinks on the back side of the heatsink. Best choice is go with a VGA Silencer, or a 1U heatsink.

-Thanks

the copper heatsinks, are you talking about these ?
if its those, i think they wouldnt fit on the top side
there is only about 6 mm of clearence and the heatsinks are 9 mm high
unless you sand off some of the heatsinks, they wont fit

the VGA silencer looks like ramsinks will fit nicely on either side
