I personally have the U3 and with my backcover off it reduces temps by almost 15oC on both gpu and cpu. The best so far is prob the Zalman NC2000 or the Cryo NZXT. Depends on the setup of your laptop tho, and in 99% of cases its better to have the back cover off so the air flows within the heatsinks and components.

Zalmans are hit or miss. I bought the 1000 model and it was crazy loud. RMA'd for another and it too is very loud.

I have a meager although somewhat useful suggestion. I just purchased a ASUS G60VX-RBBX05 and according to the pictures and mod suggestions I found online, instead of a notebook cooler, I am planning some mods on it after the warranty runs out. Again I said, after the warranty runs out. I plan on creating larger vents adding an internal exhaust fan and adding some extra strategically placed copper plates to dissipate heat more evenly. If you are not into mods and your laptop is still under warranty, don't do mods.
Here is a notebook cooler I am considering though.
