This will cool your GTX 285.
Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME GTX 280 Products Model: ACCELX280 [ACCELX280] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

I have 2 of them hooked up to a pair of GTX 280's and they easily dropped my temps by 20dC. And it's quiet.

It may be slightly cooler but it's way more expensive. My cards idle in the low 30's and never get much hotter than the low 50's.

Is it quieter than the normal heat sink? I'm running mine at 40% according to RivaTuner

I'll be in college next year Plan on going to the local community college to get the small courses out of the way and apply to CIT, MIT, and a few UC's. My grades are good enough, I just didn't take the SAT II's / ACT's
