i have just recently purchased a Palit Sonic GeForce 1GB GTX 460, it has a big fan on it but no Heat Sink.
As has been pointed out already, yes it does. If it didn't,

Quote:
There has to be, a card like that would vaporize/go up in smoke, in seconds without it.
There is no way that card would even be useable on the desktop without one. And if it doesn't have a heatsink on it the last thing you do is try and add one, you send it back for one that does.

It never had copper piping like it was meant to.

From what i have been reading, a few people are tryinh to get a Good Sink on them.

why don't you just purchase a pci grphics card cooler and put it next to the card much easier then destroying a new card

I should also add there is no high power gpu without a heatsink or fan you are runnig a gtx 460 that card would melt without the heatsink and fan you have one but it might be low profile

If that is the case then you contact Palit and ask them what it is supposed to have on it. If it is supposed to be like the one Hopalong linked to and it doesn't, then Palit should be making it right, no you.

BTW what kind of load temps are you getting on the card with what is on it now?
