Video Card Cooler

Please Note: I do not
take responsibility for your stupidty, if you break something that
you paid a lot for, tough luck. I told you to be careful.
Following the great success of the Poorman's
Card Cooler, we're back with another guide! This time, we
tackle the problems of overclocking a video card. To be more
specific, we take our Voodoo 3 3000 to a step higher. How well
does this homemade cooler do? Lets find out...
After a couple of minutes of idle using
the retail heatsink that came with our Voodoo3, it was hot to the
touch! We tried to overclock the card which did decent, but of
course decent is not enough.
Update: We use the V3
Overclock program which will add this tab to your display
properties, hope this answers many of your questions : )

So I decided to take this adventure a
little further. Time to slap on a beefier heatsink. I rummaged
around the pile of junk I had and found one that actually seemed to
fit quite well.
