Glad you enjoyed my little joke there. :P

I would recommend this: Newegg.com - GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler ICY VISION

Product page: GELID Solutions > Products

That's just me. Someone might have a better solution.

Dumb question... How do I mount this? Duck tape isn't an acceptable answer

Same way you mount a CPU heatsink. There are holes on the outside of the GPU, that rods go through. Tighten on back end. And be sure to put thermalpaste on.

Unless you're running a computational program, most things will not run your gpu to overheat. Manual setting of your gpu fan easily solves any overheating.

A true waterloop will run a system much cooler than A air cooler, with near silent operation. But again, theyre $300...

High end cpu cxoolers are precision machined with 4 or mor heatpipes yada yada.. However the difference etween a good cooler and a great cooler is bout 5C.

Heres reviews of the corsair stuff:

Didn't read much of what was said besides a few things. Take it from somebody who was obessed with water cooling for years, it isn't worth it. Even if you did overclock, the only advantage water does for you is give you the same OC with a few less C unless you go extreme and drop a ton of money into the loop. A good air cooler on your CPU will do it just fine.

I see the Corsair Hydro series has been recommended. For silence and good cooling with no OCing I always say go for the H60 or H80.
