    I'd actually replace the cooler on either with the correct Arctic Cooling "Silencer" and Arctic Silver 5 for better overclocking performance. It did wonders on my 9800 Pro with the older revision that uses just an aluminum heat sink (rather than copper), and the newer ones should do great on 9800 Pros and 6600GT.

    Still, I don't think the 9800 Pro is a bad OCer with the stock fan at all. Most can get close to 9800XT speeds, and some can even pass them. Not sure about the 6600GT, though...

    Many reviews I saw of the PCIe version of the 6600GT had big gains in clock speeds with OC, the heatsink and fan are probably similar expect being curved now.

    I would OC the 9800 pro but im returning it once I get my 6600gt and dont want to risk any damage to the card.

    Hey, just wondering that, all 6800 are the same right? Besides the LE version which means it sucks worst, all the 6800 that I buy can maybe flash to a GT or Ultra right? Is it better to buy the OC version?

    Enabling pipes to get a normal 6800 up to GT spec is a hit-n-miss business, but i hear they oc well (it helps that they drain less power than a GT or Ultra)
