Exclamation aftermarket cooler for 7900gt (evga)

All i can find for an aftermarket cooler is the arctic cooling one, and its not very appealing. I've seen the zalman ones that light up blue(which is what i want since ill be seeing it 24/7 in my qpack. so what im asking for is a link to some type of blue lighted heatsink for my 7900gt, and if needed i can do a little modding.

you gotta be kiddin , when buying a cooler what you should care about is how good it is and if you can get a better one for same price , the looks doesnt matter unless your gonna date with it which is unlikely

The only one i can think of is the Zalmna vf-900, that actually fits a 7900 series video card. The vf-700cu might but i have no clue.

Arctic cooling accelero x2/x1 series of coolers offer the best cooling performance for the 7900 series of cards.

The zalman is good, but its too **** expensive and the cooling for either is almost exactly the same
