    Arctic VGA cooler in Shuttle?

    I finally made a decision and went for a Rad 9800 pro while I wait for Socket 939/PCI-E to settle down. I wouldnt mind fitting an Arctic VGA cooler rev 3 to it, as my Shuttle is pretty warm.

    http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=602852

    Will this fit in a Shuttle? I know someone makes a card with it pre-fitted and I think someone said it would squeeze in.

    I've got an SN41G2, and my PCI slot is being used (I dont think that matters?).

    Cheers.

    Ok, it looks like it might not fit if I'm using the PCI slot

    It won't fit iirc due to the agp slot being near the case side

    The mesh case accessory helps reduce the heat, but it will make the machine about 3dB noisier. The choise is yours
