The VF900Cu is (obviously) the best.
The reason to why it is, is because it has larger fin area, and also has heatpipes.

I used to think the Artic Colling Silencers were a good option but after removine one from a 9800pro some time ago and replacing it with a good passive cooler ( from a Sapphire 9700pro )with some nice airflow on it.

The results surpassed the Artic Cooling option by a long way.

I have since used the smaller Zalman's (copper only) and too found these to perform better. The use of memory BGa sheatsinks are advised for optimal performance.

Go the Zalman...just make sure it has good access to incomming airflow and some decent exhaust options close by.

Both HSFs dont cover the ram. Thats why they give you RAMsinks.
