Default Nvidia HSF

hello, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this HSF from artic cooling. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...186-119&depa=1

I habe a PNY 5900 xt, anyone know if this will interfere with the memory sinks? and does anyone know if it works well/is worth the price tag?

The Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer series provide the best cooling on the market.

That VGA Cooler is very good. Well worth the price.

I was wondering if it is compatable with my PNY card, since i have found out that it is not compatable with all makes of the 5900xt. I emailed artic cooling, but have yet to hear back. here is a picture of my card.

The specs for the card say mostly ATI series that are (in terms of performance) the same as the FX series, but it says the compatibility for Nvidia only goes up to GeForce3 Ti lol.
