Default Cooling ???? Should I ?

K, for heatsink cooler i wanted to go with Zalman 9500, Thermaltake Big Typhoon is just too big. But I have a question, I also see Coolers for VGA and for HDD, should I get those too ? I have Thermaltake Tsunami case with 3 fans. The video card will b evga 7900GT and hard drive will b WD Raptor 74Gb 16mb 10,000. If yes cuz I'm worried about cooling is there specific VGA cooler for this card or all of them are universal ?

i am running 2 wd raptor hdd's... they're about 2" away from each other on the rack, i got a thermalcouple hooked up to the top of the top one and it usually runs at ~35*C. just one will probably be alittle cooler. i've been looking for a HDD cooler, but everything i've seen so far is pretty chincy. i wouldnt spend 40-50 on anything i've seen, its crap.

i'd recommend just getting a fan positioned overtop of it for like 5 bucks.
