Default Zalman VF700-CU, still the best choice?

For cooling my video card with extreme efficiency yet extreme silence, is this still the way to go?

So they have. The Newegg reviews looks rather hopeful, anyone here have first hand experience with the new VF900-Cu?

It's got two heatsinks so I doubt it doesn't outperform the VF700. I almost ordered the older brother recently, but decided to wait and stick with my 7900GT stock cooler to see how cool it would run on my new system, and I'm glad they did because they put the VF900 on the site. I'd definitely get it for those five extra bucks. Oh, and did I mention that the VF900 comes with Fanmate 2 too?
