    Suitable Replacement Heatsink for Leadtek Ti4200

    Do these cards with the wrap-around heatsink have standard mounting holes, or would I have to epoxy a new heatsink on?

    Thinking of sticking the Coolermaster ramsinks on the memory modules, but I am at a loss at to what to replace the GPU heatsink with. Want something cool but quiet. Was thinking a resistor modded crystal orbs, but then I realised that I hate Tt.

    Any suggestions?

    I was looking at the Vantec Iceberq4 Pro. I just don't like Thermaltake with their spoon-like bases. It gets a better review as well.

    Pricey though for such a small HS. Just hope its good for that price. i know the thermaltake one can be had for a tenner in mappys, so should be well under online, and the differnce in overclock would only be a few mhz at most (remember to use thermal goop).
    Still your probably like me and will allways buy the best equipment

    Yer mines the 128mb version. Really poor for clocking, get sparklies at pretty much anything above stock. Going to add some new fans to my case, upgrade the stock cooling and try again.

    Crystal orb is a far better performer than the replacement fan specifically for geforce 4s.

    The Vantec stuff is brilliant, I just bought a Iceberq4 chipset cooler and a Zalman passive chipset sink. The Zalman took 20 minutes with 600 grade wet & dry to get flat and another 10 to polish, the Vantec out of the pack was as flat as I could have asked for and highly polished. I stuck the Zalman on my Southbridge and the Vantec on my Northbridge and am now running 220FSB as opposed to 200.

    I have a Leadtek 128mb Ti4200 which I run at 300/540 (Default 250/444). I'm going to replace the wraparound cooler with an Iceberq4 Pro and the copper sinks from a Coolermaster memory set. My core has run at 320, I'm confident that the Vantec will let me run that as standard, the memory on the 128mb cards I think is only 4ns so is pretty naff but maybe having sinks on them will help. Having taken off the wraparound cooler and applied AS3 my conclusions are that it probably cools the GPU well but traps heat around the memory and doesn't contact the chips enough to make an attempt at cooling them, probably hinders them.

    Hope this helps.
