I am in search of better cooling for my 6800 Ultra. This thing is freaking toasty! Here are some Heatsinks I am looking at:Where applicable I will use the Tweakmonster BGA RAMsinks.

I want to keep the cost under $50 plus shipping, so the Thermalright is cutting it close. Please think about what heatsink you vote for before answering. Leave comments too! Thanks!

A lot of votes are going to be for the Zalman VF900-CU.

evercool Turbo 2 + OCZ Ram-sinks

EDIT: It can keep a X1900XTX Under 60C, it can hold your 6800 ultra.

Mine dosent go over 50C loaded.

I was also looking at that one, but it is suspiciously inexpensive. I do like the fact that it looks like the 7900GTX cooler though.

AC AVC-NV5R3 or Rev2.
I had it on my PNY 6800GS AGP and it kept it nice and cool, I think under 65C Load with 30C case temp.

I say the HR-03 its a sick cooler. I was about to order one with a panaflo (medium speed) but then i got the FC-ZV9because i want to runs SLI easier. May i also recomend the FC-ZC9 its a sick cooler. It pushes WAY more air then the VF-900

Any others? Seems like the VF-900 is winning, I think if I go for that I will get the ZC9 version. After seeing the pics from ThaWaxShop, it just looks so good.
