    Radeon 9500 Cooling

    I'm looking for a decent sized cooler for my 9500... the stock cooler is fine, and can take the card upto around 365MHz but the card does get a bit too hot for my liking.

    I have removed the shim and put AS3 between the core and heatsink, which has dropped temperatures by a massive amout

    I was wondering whether the Thermaltake CrystalOrb would fit? I have one of these on one of my Voodoo3 cards and it is an awesome cooler, even if the fan is at 7v

    Also, would cooling with BGA heatsinks and AS3 allow me to clock the ram higher than 310MHz?

    Thanks
