Default 7800gt cooling

whats the best after market cooling for the 7800gt? PnY model also the aftermarket gpu's only cover the gpu itself and the stock covers the gpu/and memeory chips, when you apply the little heatsinks with the aftermarket cooler is that adequet enough to cool it? like on a zalmans

so my main questions whats the best gpu cooler and are the heatsinks provded with the cooler on the link io have provided good enough to keep my card cooler than the stock cooling?

this zalamans

no need to go for the fatal1ty cooler, just pick up the vf-700-cu. Also, stick with Arctic Silver 5; its less expensive and is the best out there. PTS has the for the VF-700cu same price as Xoxide but AS5 for a buck less. They also have the VF700-alcu for 25 bucks. Im not too sure what the performance difference is between the alcu and cu, but they both seem to be good.

the alcu has substancially worse performance. it is well worth getting the all copper. also if the differance between faltality and non is under $10 its worth it
