Don't use a can.
I think they are internally coated which will reduce heat transfer.
search aluminum shims. For $5 you can get a 12"x12" sheet.
Or better, go with copper.

That was always the bundle. Thats how some of us got it for ~$350
$599- 15%off (normal E&A promotion) - $80 off $500 E&A coupon (CustService gave us over the phone) - $74 cancelled install charge = ~$350
Also, 911medic, with your CPU you should be able to max all settings at native (except soft shadows) resolution with the 7800GTX.
I do with a 1.6/7800GTX combo.
Whats holding you back big time is the 512mb ram.
You NEED 2GB!
He means 7800 go not the GTX, 911medic.
There are concerns that it will be a mild upgrade from the 6800go.
On paper it has more potential than a 6800ultra with the added benefit of 6-cell, 90watts only.
We have to wait until people...
