For air cooling I'd go for the Zalman Fata1ty if money isn't a problem. It's basically the Zalman vf700-cu, but with a faster fan. Either will give excellent results.

doesn't have to be watercooled, my brother is OC addict, has a 4.1 and his VGA is really stressed, so the best cooling solution, but must be silent tough!

I would personally go for the Zalman VF-700cu. The copper fins are exposed so you wont get huge amounts of dust build up and are easier to clean, they are pretty quiet and compatible with most cards.

So wait, why can't he put it in his watercooling loop? If you want the least amount of noise, then get a waterblock for it (Try the maze4 from dangerden.com, probably the best one for that card out now). Then he wouldn't be adding ANY noise to his system. As long as he has a good radiator and pump, he should be golden.

If you are looking for air, I am going to disagree with getting the Zalman. Hey, its a great performing and great looking solution, I agree. However, (and I say this about once a week) the Arctic Silencer gets air OUT of the case, which is always a plus. I have one on my X800XT and it has worked out great. Also, with some compressed air, its not hard at all to clean out, I do it probably every six months to great effect. Also, you can get one from places like coolerguys.com for 24 bucks sometimes, where the Zalman (because is solid copper) is considerably more. Just get him the silencer man, great temps, quiet operation, awesome deal.

You can find comparisons of the Arctic Silencer verses the Zalman and the Zalman comes out ontop in every single one I've ever seen.
