Question VGA Heatsinks and Fans...

Hey guys, I got a Radeon 9800 Pro card, and as you all probably know, the stock heatsink and fan on this card sucks...when in full load, I can't even touch the card without getting burnt...(yeah it is that hot...)...but anyway...I was going to overclock it, but I need better cooling...so can anyone recommend something really good to overcloak, while keeping the temperatures low...something for about 30 american dollars. Plus, explain exactly how it works. Thanks guys. P.S. Post links with pictures, and/or reviews. Thanks.

Use the Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer. I have been able to get some serious frequencies with it.

It the most effective VGA cooler on the market. And considering that it sucks in the air from your case, and releases it through the back - The case temperature is drastically reduced.

Yeah didn't some guy post theres a rev. 3 of it now to fit the newer nvidias? I didn't realize that it blew air out of the computer via the PCI slot below it...pretty good idea

I own the Rev 3! :P

The only nVidia card that it is compatible with is the GeForce 3 TI.
