I ended up getting an Icy Vision Rev. 2.

It isn't the best benchmark, but playing Bad Company 2 on all highs (save for AA and AF), the stock cooler would end up around 65c after a couple hours.

With the Icy Vision on (with AS-5 to boot), my cards now overclocked to 860/1720/1900, and maxed out at around 58c on EVGA's stress test program. Real world temps (aka me playing BC2 again) are even lower.

I'm really satisfied with this. It runs around 1600rpm off a mobo fan header right now (getting a Kaze Master to control it next week), and it's sooo much quieter than the EE's stock cooler. I'd overclock further but anything over 860 core clock starts to artifact for me... I need to learn a bit about the voltage
