    Hey guys,

    I have a perfectly working 4870 1GB for my MacPro1,1. I have one issue though. The heatsink on the card is crap. It uses a spring system to keep pressure on the chip, but the damn springs end up getting pressed against the memory cage and ultimately the card overheats.

    I need to get a good replacement for it. Has anyone found a heatsink that fits nicely in the MacPro1,1?

    Thanks
