Thermalright VRM-R3 VGA Voltage Regulator Cooler (ATI HD 5870/5850) -
or this
Thermalright VRM-R4 VGA Voltage Regulator Cooler (ATI HD 5870/5850) -
or this
Thermalright VRM-R5 VGA Voltage Regulator Cooler (ATI HD 5870/5850) -

Plus you'll need fans.

While I adore Thermalrights CPU Coolers, I'm not a Big Fan of there GPU Cooling Solutions. For GPU Cooling I would be looking at something from Arctic Cooling. They have a new Cooler but I haven't seen it in any shops yet.
Accelero Xtreme 5870

If you just can't wait then I would go with one of these.
Arctic Cooling Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO Quad Heatpipe Universal VGA Cooler (NVIDIA & ATI) HD 5870 Compatible!! -
so after poking around all day looking at coolers, i think i have decided that i dont want the spitfire, even tho it looks amazing and it would make a great addition to my computer, it simply makes the option of a crossfire setup impossible, as far as i can tell.

so, slaymate, do you know if there would be room to crossfire with those coolers you recommended?
