Took the card out to do a little work on it.
Well. Here she is:





Here's the card apart:



Look at that stock cooler :O



And all put back together. I re-routed the fan wire, cross-brushed the aluminum and let it oxidize for a rustic and rugged look which matches the print on the face of the card.

Pretty cool.

Graphics card coolers are pretty straight forward to remove, nothing to really be afraid of.

Pull the card out of the system :O. Get a good shot of it. Is it the 9800 Akimbo?

Just got my 5770. Sorry about the cell phone pics, I'm at work posting from my iPhone. Nice to see it has a dual-heatpipe cooler, I hope it performs better than the reference cooler.
