I bought a GT640 with 3gb or ram and it heats up a lot. I tried returning the card but I bough it second-hand and it wasn't worth wasting more of my time to get a few dollars back. if I try to run a game (BF3 for instance), once the map is loaded and I start moving it crashes. Temperature reaches the max. Somehow the card has a problem: sensors report temperature and monitor says it sends current to the fan but it's not spinning. fans works properly when plugged into something else than the vga card.
ok enough said, I need cooling. It has to be 43mm mounting holes. It has to be efficient but cheap. I would prefer copper but I get since I'm cheap it'll be aluminium. I can probably afford to stick extra heatsinks on the ram module though.
