Will this fit my 6850's ?

IS there a better cooler for around the same price?
Its a XIGMATEK Bifost with a different name and better price has anyone tried it.

EDIT:
went ahead and pulled the trigger got two coolers from compusa and droped temps by 10c .Also they are silent at 100% though its not needed .cant beat it for $35 each and picked them up from the store so didnt have to wait or pay for shiping

Just bought my first ATI card in 6 years! Was on the fence about the 460 or the 6850 and I am very confident I made the right choice. Can't wait to burn it in!

hard to tell what is better. the V1 had some issue with overclocking the memory. maybe that is a reason for V2 (fixing that issue).

Why, are you still getting the same high vrm temps like before changing the coolers? Dunno for sure what's the limit for the 68xx vrm temps

no most of the time there fine but win I bench and raise the voltage over 1.3 they get pretty hot.lol

Im just looking for a cut-off point for when im acting stupid.I like to push things to the limit for no reason at all.But I do watch temps so I need to know when to panic and rapidly hit Esc.lol

Exact same story here except that it has been nearly 10 years since I bought one.

Deciding factor for me was combination of benchmarks, price, and power consumption.
