err was just gonna post exactly those three, took me 5 mins to come up w/ them.. anyway I'd say either the accelero or the zalman vf900, flip a coin cause if you ask me they'r both great. [though from experience, the ZALMAN mounting patents are horrificly crippled, be prepare to cut yourself a couple of times!!!]

But don't take it as there are no cons to the Accelero!! The accelero heatsink will probably take up half of you'r case space, LOL!

Even if the Ambient Temp is 90F outside, that's 32C. Your GPU will not cool less then ambient with tradtional air cooling. 60C is absoltuely nothing for modern GPU's. Don't worry about it. IF your not seeing artifacts it's all good.

60C is in the safe range for video cards and is pretty normal. Unless you're seeing graphical glitches, don't worry about it.
