Default Is this fan compatible?

I have this video card and was wondering if this VGA cooler is compatible with it? If not, what should I get?

My temps dropped significantly when I added this to my 9800gt:

Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING ACCELS1 Rev 2 VGA Cooler - VGA Cooling

Even cooler if you add:

Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Turbo Module Sleeve Dual VGA Fan - VGA Cooling

But not necessary unless you're pushing the card's limits....IMO.

I second the Arctic Cooling setup. That cooler is top notch and even without the fans it cools the card better than the stock heatsink and fan.

Thanks for the help. I decided to go with the Zalman VF1000 since I have not a problem with them in the past.
