Sorry, I should of gave you a choice of good heatsinks, and went for the one I would go for. The Zalman CNPS7700-CU is also good, but you will have to check compatibility with your mobo. The Thermaltake big typhoon goes up quite high, so i think it fits nearly all motherboards. The ThermalRight XP-90C will be playing it safe, but you will need to add a 92mm fan onto it.
well my 7800gt also idles at 40c sometimes even lower.. once i start a game.. it goes a bit over 50. when you say its threshold is 115c, do you mean that is the max it should be before it overheats? i will check out those heatsinks thanks for the reccomendations. also i have a question about case cooling. right now i have an 80mm side fan and an 80mm back fan.. oo yea also the psu has a fan. now i was thinking about adding a fan that intakes air, but i came across the issue of dust getting in the case. my house is especially dusty because my basement is being fixed and also we have rugs on the floors. do you think intake is a good idea? oo yea 1 more thing, how much of a change will i see if i get rid of the stock heatsink and put on one of the ones you chose?

Load in the low 40's with them.

Have the side fan as an intake. If you are worried about dust, you can get a dust cover thing for it. I have foam all the way up the front of my drive bays, and I only have the dust that coolected when I left the door open when I was waiting for a replacement HDD.

At 115*C the PC should shutdown.

A new heatsink and some AS5 will defintely lower your temps

Stick with zalman VF-700cu for GPU and the CNPS9500 or BIG Typhoon for your CPU

I'm backing PZERO up with the Zalman VF-700cu. That sucker rocks. I'm using it right now. Talk about higher overclocks than I WAS getting...
