Default What heat sink for a evga 7800gt and what paste?

Ok i bought a evga 7800gt a little while ago and I wanted to know what the best/coolest (temp wise) hsf for it would be. Also which paste would i use to keep it cool.

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.

I was wondering cause whebever i want to oc my video cards it maxes out i think because of the card itself, not because of temps. So i wanted to know if those two additions would help temps and oc. I want to hit atleast 500/1200. Maybe 600/1300 if im lucky.....

Hmm... Disagree.

I own the ZF-700 or whatever it's called, and I can't even tell it's there. My 80mm fans are semi-noisy, and Zalman... I really cannot hear it, at all. It's silent. I took off my case side and tried to listen. It's just not even there.
