    Hi All,
    I just received my ATi Silencer 3 Rev.2 for my 9800XT. If I install the fan onto the card it doesn't look like it's going to fit into the Power Mac G5. The clearance under the card is too small. Anybody know a way to install the fan to make it fit in the PM G5? Thanks.

    I had the same problem with the same cooler in my G4.
    The (huge) RAM cooler for the back of the card would not clear the PSU shelf, so I left it off and clipped off the tall posts that held it. I used low profile ramsinks on the back instead.
