I have no plans to update. I have replaced the standard fan with a Zalman and I have no idea how to take that off the card. I will not be able to bring the card with me one day to the Mac Pro.

I have no problem with my 1.2GHz. What difference makes a MDD case? The 2x1.6GHz should run cooler than the 1.2GHz due to the lack of L3-cache or am I wrong?
