Default question about cooling a 8800 GTX

I was looking at this VGA cooler for my 8800GTX.Newegg.com - Thermalright HR-03 Plus VGA Cooler - Retail I am running all stock coolers at the moment and have my system running unclocked. Down the road I am looking at ugrading my heatsinks and fans, ect. for overclocking. The discription says I need a 92 mm fan for this heatsink. WHat kind of 92 mm fan? Where can I get one?

You can get one at newegg as well.


There is a lot of them to chose from:
Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
But I would suggest going for the highest possible air flow, and the lowest possible noise level.

Yeah, get a 92mm fan with the highest cfm for the lowest db possible.

plumber, I wouldn't know from personal experience, however, ive heard if you slap some AS5 on the GPU and then put the stock cooler back on, it should suffice for moderate-heavy overclocking...because i THINK the stock coolers are pretty decent...anyways, others, feel free to confirm...or not, just tryin to save you some monies.

Yea...actually I think the stock coolers do a pretty good job on it's own, even when overclocked.
