The Arctic Cooling VGA Cooler has had a great impact on my 9600XT in another computer (its around 10-15ยบ lower) and I am deciding whether to get it for my 6800 GT or not. But I hope the version for the 6800 GT model is a lot easier fit than the one for the 9600XT.

Do they have an Arctic Cooling VGA for the 6600GT by chance?

Well if you have an eVGA card than the stock cooling on a 6800GT is sufecient enough right? well at least it is for me lol.

Technically it should be....should be basically like getting a free aftermarket heatsink since you're getting a HS meant for a card more powerful and a lot hotter.
