    I wouldn't worry to much about the weight, just look at the biggest heatpipe coolers by Zalman.. :)

    It's the actual mounting that you'll have to figure out..

    How much room would the volcano7+ occupy?

    mounting shoudl be easy, it doesnt hit anythign the card and the just drill 2 holes through it where the stock heat sink mounts and then use to nylon bolts and nuts to hold it in place, easy as pie

    ~3 inches (70mm) i think, so you had better not have anything in the first 3-4 PCI slots :hammer:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Well that's no good.. In my case.. that would take like all 3 of my PCI slots.. and i wouldn't even be able to get online .. without my modem.

    Why not just cut the tops of the fins away (leaving say 25mm of fins) then drill new holes and cut down the shroud? That way the weight problem is reduced (not removed) and the total height is less.

    I'm stuck between Soulburner and zeradul though- I'd like to think that it would help, but I'm not sure if it would help- and I don't like that much weight on your card/AGP slot..........

    That would save plenty of room but also making the use of that particular sink kind of unnecessary as it would loose a fair bit of it's superior cooling. Also, the difference in weight would be slim, the fins doesn't weight much it's the base.

    But I still don't think the weight is much of a problem just look at the other massive vga sinks out there. :)

    You will find it is pretty much impossible to cut those fins and keep them nice and straight and not bend them all together.

    Man, the one I bought came with the fins all bent together. I just bent them back apart.Do you lucky U.S. *******s get ones with stright fins? I guess that after all the gay marrige stuff in California, maybe the government made laws saying everything had to be straight, including HS fins. Lucky all the roads were already.

    All heatsinks that have their fins skived have slightly curved fins but if your's was all bent together then that would've likely happen durin' transportation (I've yet to come across that with a V7+ and I use a lot of them).
