    I too have an MSI GF4 Ti4200
    But i have no Heat sinks on the memory. Should I put heat sinks on both sides of the card or just one side, if just one side which side should i put it on for better cooling?
    Thanks

    If you noticed, when trying to oc this card there is a limit on the memory of 600 I think, if you know how to get past this please let me know how.

    The GPU HSF that you had on before looks like it was made out of white plastic, hehehh...

    I wonder if that would fit on my GF4 MX440SE? I think it has the same hole positions, but I don't think that my card has any output for a fan (Since it just has one HUGE heatsink instead) But that can easily be solved with the right tools. ;)

    Then I probably could go beyond the 330 OCing mark! :D

    The only problem is.... Where do you buy these from? I've tried looking around for some sort of order form on their site, but me no find one. :(

    no worries, it'll fit on your card--the kit came with an adapter from the 3-pin to the regular 12 volt (the main psu connections)

    they are sold at a lot of places online--ppl here can probably make recommendations, but here are a few popular onlnie places (for US buyers) I've found it at:

    directron
    http://www.directron.com/a1449.html

    newegg
    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...tby=14&order=1

    yeah, the old stock fan was chromed aluminum, but it sure does look like plastic! the all copper thermaltake hsf is great, but I can't really say the same for the ramsinks that it comes with. they seemed to be the wrong size, so I cut them up, which made the fins run the way I wanted them to.

    Usually it's normal to see the fan stop spinning when the computer's off, but if it's on and it just stops, check that the connections on the fan are in properly, and move the fan yourself around just to see that you haven't gone and melted your fan because you OCed it too much (Because of the heat it makes, it can melt the plastic in the fan).

    If it is messed up, then I suggest you get a quality GPU HSF, like the Tt Copper G4 GPU HSF, Tt is a good make! :thumb:
