I have an MDD G4 and I want to oc my video card some more. In order to do so, I need more cooling on the gpu. The agp location is goofy in the MDD, so there is not much room for a big heatsink. Does anyone know of a small aftermarket heatsink? Maybe another cooling suggestion? I have ram coolers on it already and a PCI fan.

There are plenty of small form factor after-market heatsinks for graphics cards. Many of them are used in Cubes because of the space limitation. I did find one that has a fairly small form factor. Would this work for your needs?

Hey, that would be perfect if it worked for an ati 9000 pro. I'll look at that website for some other types. I did find a sweet Zalman vf700-cu. Dont know if it will fit or not though.
Thanks alot, you have put me in the right direction.

Just thought I would let everyone know I found a sweet GPU cooler for MDD macs. Its made by Vantec-the all in one coppery kit "CCB-A1C". Its less than $10 from New Egg.com and comes with a beautiful heat sink w/fan, and two chip coolers for motherboard controllers. There are others but this one is definately worth a look! :lol: LET THE OVERCLOCKING CONTINUE!

I plan to send my mac mod guide on my MDD next week. But I will try to take some digital pics and post them tomorrow. My coworker has my digital cam.
I plan on finishing the mods to it this weekend. I have some new parts coming this week. All except the gpu heatsink which I will try and order up tomorrow.
