Default Heat Sinks for 7900 GT

okay, since i'm going sli there's going to be more heat in there, and i guess i want a new hsf for my gpu(s), but keep in mind i'm going to need room so both gpu's will still fit in there without being too cramped up.. but i'm sure if a 7900gtx can fit in there sli with that monstrous hsf, a zalman or something should fit as well, hopefully i have enough money to buy them both at once after the bank hit of buying another 7900

I think the Zalman VF900 will fit.

i was checking those out on newegg, they look so small.. but reading the specs, its pretty big, hopefully i won't be needing the pci-e x4 slot inbetween the two cards. And thats an ugly heatsink.. eww, but i dont mind if it gets the job done, do they by any chance sell the 7900gtx heatsinks

this things looking pretty intimidating right here, and its huge, nice bulk to it, just what i'd love! not an odd bulk either. but it says only 7900gtx, kind tells me to stay away, there's no 7900 gt in that list

and if not that, then the zalman here

hrm the vf900... just read some reviews, guy with an xfx 7900gt says his card bent?? i dunno if i wanna risk that, seeing as i've never done anything like this, i don't know if i want risk that... if someone can tell me its simply, taking off some bolts, slappin on some as5, then screwing in a new heatsink.. maybe i'll get some balls to do it :P

If you over tighten the screws, it will bend. Its user error not the fan.

The arctic cooling one will not work... I am getting a GT as well and The only thing that willl work on it now is the ZALMAN's... Yes it does stink, but I have a VF-700 on a 6800GT for one of my other systems and it does look pretty good, and it is very quiet... Another plus! Also the 900 would work, but it is expensive, that's my downfall...
