Well, my ATI Radeon 9600 had very crappy passive cooling, and the heatsink was very small, so I decided to change that. I took my spare retail AMD cooler that came with my AMD A64 3200+ (I have a thermalright XP-90 on it), and I hack away some of the heatsink for the capacitors, and holes for the screws. Not very good looking, but I can get my 9600 to almost XT speeds, before only to Pro speeds. I am getting RAM sinks soon as well. Sorry for the crappy picture quality, I had to save the pictures in photoshop as a bad quality to cut down on the size, plus I was using my crappy digital camera.

Nope, I am using my BIOS to make the max voltage 9V, and it works great, but much quieter than @ 12V. Yes ghetto, but it works awesome with some artic silver.

ghetto, wel yeah it is, but this is what its all about people, improving performance

great job, and cool to see it actually gets you almost 100 mhz extra, but i hope you dont have that fan running full rpm at 12v
