I was actually looking at that one, but some reviews didnt look so good. some people on newegg were complaining about their cards being bricked. maybe they didnt know what they were doing!

There is a version for the 200 series and one for the 400 series, afaik.

Go with the Gelid Icy Vision, it will beat the Zalman easily, and be much quieter. I have mine being shipped from Hong Kong as we speak...

93c on a 470 is pretty impressive. I can run my cards sandwiched in SLI, with 1.125v at 850 core and not break 85c.

Silly question, but are you running a custom fan profile?
