Default VGA Cooler for a 9800gtx+

So I'm getting a 9800gtx+ from EVGA soon (I know, lol..). I was wondering, whats the best VGA cooler on newegg thats compatible with the 9800+? I cant seem to find anything, but would a vga cooler for the 9800gtx regular fit on the +? I know the chip is smaller in the + but I'm still just wondering whether or not that would matter.

I'd be willing to spend up to $50 or so shipped off newegg because I decided I do want to OC. Why not when you have a lifetime warranty right?

I'll post pics soon of the junk in my computer once I get the vid card in there.

Thermalright HR-03 GT I'm pretty sure would fit
I've got two for my 3870's (which will be put on 4870's when I get them)
