    Question better cooler for my XFX 6800GT PCI-E


    I'm getting a XFX 6800GT PCI-E next week. Since I'm planning on doing some serious overclocking I'm looking for a replacement cooler. I've norrowed the competition down to two coolers: the Zalman VF700-CU VGA and the Arctic NVidea silencer 5.

    Sure the Zalman is much more silent than the Arctic but the last one also gets the hot air out of my computer case.

    Any advice?

    I would really appreciate any feed back.

    Thanks for reading this post.

    IMO the Zalman looks pretty heavy though I do love thier products, I have heard very good things about the silencer too, I have not read the full review on either but if I had to guess the Zalman would preform better and be quieter. Thoug again It loks fairly heavy, if weight(ie you go to ots of lans) or space is a problem go with the silencer, just my opinion though.
