    We've got a couple of those. Not particularly effective heatsinks, I might add!

    My guess is its on an ATI X300 card? I think I remember having one of those cards with the same heatsink at one point

    I've got several of those lying around here. they're terrible heatsinks, but make pretty good ninja throwing stars! There's one still embedded in the far wall!
