    Be sure to keep us up to date on this, when you get the details worked out, a bit of a how-to would be nice as well.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    I've got home made ram sinks on my Geforce2 pro right now....I used an old p70 heatsink and cut it into 8 blocks, each the exact size of one RAM module. I then Lapped the bottom starting with 320 grade sandpaper, then 600, then 1200 grit for the final lapping.

    One other tip, a little bit of brasso works wonders if you want a mirror finish, just make sure your using wet/dry sandpaper.

    The result: My card could now overclock from 400mhz (default) to 480mhz. Before the ram sinks, it could only reach 460mhz. Anyway, good luck with yours. : peace2:

    Well thats all that matters :D, just to add, spraypaint probably would affect heat transfer but to an extremely minimal effect, i think the volcano 7 is painted blue and its pretty decent

    Actually the Volcano7, and others like it, are anodized frinishes and not the result of paint. But I would be interested to see what happens though with the paint. :?:

    MMM i think i don't want to now what happens with the paint!!!
    The ramsinks aren't hot to touch so i think the paint won't melt or anything. I hope!
