I worked hard on that MSI video card.
I've got some pictures of the card, as you can see the screws are proprietary. Very irritating actually, a screw broke while unscrewing it.
Here is the screw and the card backside
Fortunately the card was done up with adhesive so tight I couldn't even wiggle the HSF on the card.
The project was a failure. It's ok the GPU will just run stock/too hot.
Since I couldn't make that happen I went ahead and upgraded his motherboard. I used an iceberq chipset cooler and some of the copper ram sinks from thermaltake. I also went ahead and swapped out his loud volcano fan with a 120x38 panaflo fan (adapter required).
Here is the finished machine
All in all it looks pretty good, and the temperatures are a lil lower at idle, but much lower peak temp at load.More cool stuff later,
