From what I have read, the Zalman GV1000 is the best aftermarket fan you can buy. When I say best I am refering the fact that it is still a double slot application (not 4-5 slots) and still offers outstanding cooling.

For an 8800GTX/Ultra you need to buy the $30 ramsink ad-on because the ram on those cards gets to hot for the stick-on ramsinks that come with the GV1000.
