replace northbridge fan with Zalman heasink.

cut away any heatsink pins that interfere with the GPU.

Just try woggling the card out a tiny bit to get a little extra space, works fine for me.

Also take the oval cover off the NB heatsink.

Tried that still no joy. ****** hell.
will the graphics card work in the other pce-e slot until I can find a remedy?

Please edit the sweary. The bottom slot is fine, you need to switch the SLI jumpers to get the bottom slot from 2x to 8x.
