Default nVIDIA eVGA GeForce 6800 ULTRA... Replacement Fan for OCing

What is a good fan replacement for the nVIDIA eVGA GeForce 6800 ULTRA I plan on overclocking my video card to the max will the stock fan cool it or should I get a better fan if so which one will give me the best cooling?

either the NV silencers or the zalman 770cu (or was it 700cu? it's either 700 or 770 and it's all copper no aluminum)

Keep in mind though that the Ultra's typically already have very good cooling and a fan replacement might not do a ton to lower your temps. I would suggest checking your temps both stock and with some OCF'ing first before buying a new fan.

if you do buy one then consider getting the NV sliencer5 rev2

apparently, eVGA's video cards have better cooling than other card companies. i dont think you will be needing any other cooling.
