Default GPU cooling help!!

I've been reading tons of reviews of the cooling performance between many different types of GPU coolers. The only problem is they are all done on different video cards and all at different clock speeds.

The way I see it there are three types of GPU coolers...
-Fan, heatsync, with rear exhaust
-basic fan with heatsync open in case
-full size fanless vga coolers

Which of the 3 different types cool the best or are they all pretty much the same?? I'm trying to cool a BFG 7800 GTX. I'm down to the three pictured below. Please help!!

You can add an optional fan onto it that dramatically drops the temps, putting in the running with the other ones.

DITTO. I know some one that got one of those fanless GPU coolers and found himself burning out his GPU instead.


Fan Noise is better than Risking your GPU.

You fit a120 on it? That's good to know, I thought I had to just use the ugly black Zalman fan that is recommended for it. So do you think that one with the fan is better than the others?
