Unhappy Need cooler suggestions for 8600 GTS

Just went and bought myself a cheap Zotac 8600 GTS today and i need a cooler bad

Ran 3dmark06 and i couldn't even touch the card and i could feel the heat coming off about a foot away!!

Any decent coolers for this thing? All i know about are the Zalman vf700's and the don't fit

Not true... They only come with a fan if you don't buy a fanless card, that cools passively (not fan on the heatsink).

This one is silent, $30 Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING ACCELS1 Rev 2 VGA Cooler - VGA Cooling

this one has a fan $50 Newegg.com - ZALMAN VF1000 2 Ball VGA Cooler - VGA Cooling

both are good.
