Default VGA cooler for an 8800?

It will no tbe long before I pick up an 8800 GTS and was wondering if anyone can suggest a good hs/fan. Of course I have been considering going with somehting Zalman, but am looking for some opinions based from personal experience.

The only heatsinks I have seen for the 8800 series are VGA waterblocks. I'm not sure if they have HSFs yet for the 8800 series.

i haven't seen any HS/fans out yet that is compatible with 8k series. My guess is because of the fan size difference that it wont fit properly. I'm sure if you wait a month or two by the time ATI releases their DX10 card there will be VGA coolers for the new GPU's

I think this just came out.

I'm gonna save up for liquid cooling, and go all out. When I run Counter Strike @ 2560x1600 my alarm goes off here and there, so if I keep my door open its just enough not to set the alarm off. I need some type of better cooling system, which kinda sucks, cause its not even overclocked, yet the alarm goes off.
