Default GeForce 6600 GT AGP fan

does anyone know of any heatsink/fan made for the 6600 gt agp?
my card is reaching super high levels of heat (80) at load. This causes my games to collapse. Maybe its been asked before but i didnt see anything. thank you in advance

The VF900-CU or VF700-CU if you can't spend that much. I believe some models of the 6600GT will not be compatible with the zalman coolers.

80C sounds about normal for stock cooling... Thats what I hit at with a load temp and a room temp of 68F...

I already looked at the zalman unit and the copper fins stick out way too much for my computer case. Is there any other?

What happens when a game collapses from an overheated video card? Like describe it, it might be what's happening to me.

It crashes to the desktop lol.

Or if you overclocked it to much it could start artifiacts then give you the blue screen
