    That is probably due to your case temperature, but look around in this thread...you see a bunch of coolers, the thermaltake gaint 3 looks good. :cheers:

    I have getto cooling.

    9700AIW pro

    I used a Zalman chipset cooler seen in pic 1(The Blue thingy). And a High flow 40mm fan I took from a HD cooler, then I added a PCI slot fan seen in pic 2.
    In pic 3 you can see the Ram sinks I added to the ram and to the back of the GPU, this is also where I stuck the thermal prob.

    before the mod I would get 60C off the probe at full load and 26C case temp.
    Now I get no higher than 52C at load.

    its strange I know but it works.

    Anyone know if the Zalman ZM80C-HP will fit the All In Wonder cards? The tv turner does take up quite some space in the AIW cards, but does anyone know if it will get in the way?

    Hey polar, how did you make those RAM sinks?? Or did you buy them premade to perfectly fit?? Also, what did you attach them with? And finally, what kind of a card is that?

    I bought the Ram sinks like that. From a guy off of AMDMB Trade/sale threads.They have thermal tape on the back.

    it was just luck of the draw that one fits on the back of the GPU socket, But it sure makes a difference in temps.
