Agreed! Arctic Silver! As to whether the VF-700 or the NV Silencer will give you better temps, it probably depends on the airflow in your case. If you've got lots of fans to whisk the heat away from the graphics card, the VF-700 will probably be better, but if you don't have much exhaust air flow, go with the NV Silencer 5 since it expels the hot air out of the case right away instead of letting it accumulate inside. I think the NV Silencer 5 might be quieter, too.
