Hey,<br />
<br />
My GPU-cooler is one of the loudest ones I have ever heard. I really want to change it too a better one.<br />
<br />
Which should I choose?<br />
<br />
1: Zalman VF700-AlCu <br />
2:ARCTIC COOLING NV 6<br />
<br />
Or does anyone have something else in mind? My budget is around 25 € tops.

You should be able to find a VF900 for that price... otherwise, go for the NV6, if you're sure it's compatible.

Heya, I have a VF700 laying around which might go onto my next graphic card, but I have gotten it 3 months ago and never used it because my 6800XT ran 55c at load with stock cooler. I don't think u need a supercooler on that 7600GT also, u'll be just fine with a VF700 or VF900 whatever is cheaper.

@ Acoma Andy:<br />
I have an XFX xxx version, which I still overclock @ currently 640-1600 mhz. It's just so loud at start-up etc. <br />
So I want to know what's a good one for my budget.<br />
<br />
@Born2killU:<br />
...Are you nuts? <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
EDIT: Does anyone know the difference between the Zalman VF700 ''CU'' and Zalman VF700 ''AlcU''?

</div>Cu is all copper (Cu is the periodic symbol for copper), and AlCu is aluminum and copper. All copper is better.

Is the NV6 compatible? The last I checked, there were no arctic cooling coolers that fit the 7600. The VF900 would be a good choice though, but since the 7600 does not require <i>that</i> much cooling power, I bet a VF700 would do just fine, and its cheaper.

I am about to buy the VF700 Alcu as the 7600GT AGP doesn't get that hot anyway and I found it for 20 bucks so why not.
