Re: Polymodding Asus A7V266-E, Capacitor Recommendations?

I've got a temp cooling solution on the card right now and it doesn't seem to have issues, the old one was shot as the fan wasn't working anymore, I found a sort of universal cooling solution on eBay...

Re: Polymodding Asus A7V266-E, Capacitor Recommendations?
