6800s are pretty big.. in comparison to say.. the 7600gts at least.

Well yeah...the PCB design was different. The 7600 GT's utilize less PCB space mostly because there aren't as many capacitors now, so that means more room. I took two pics, one with and one without flash.

so did the cooler come with the heatsinks for the ram and will other coolers come with em?

Zalman heatsinks always come with the small RAMsinks, so if you're using Zalman, no need to worry. About other coolers, that would depend. What brand and cooler are you planning to use?

I would recommend 90%+, i personally use 91% rubbing alcohol. I like to use AS5 on the core and Ceramique on the memory. haha, alvin you would have never gotten that stuff if it wasnt for me
