Hi there.What part of West palm Beach?I live in Lake Worth.I use the vf900 in my 7950gt and got great results.Temps in the mid 40c volt mod @ 1.5 and 2.25,and oc to the 700's and high memory too.If you interest in volt mod and crazy oc that puppy let me know.I never use the hr-03,but look good in especial with a delta on it.
The HR-03 plus i just for the 8 series.
How much room do you have in your case? If space is not an issue go for the regular HR-03. It takes up pretty much every single slot. You can mount the card two ways, but I found with the plus it works best when the fan is blowing up on the core and memory.
EDIT: Oh and if you go that route, just strap a 120 to it. Forget those wimpy 92's. Keeps my 8800 at a nice 43C.
If I were you I'd get the VF900. The G71 core runs very cool and the VF900 is able to handle a 1.55V voltmod. The HR-03 performs better but you don't need the extra performance for that card, and it takes loads of space, especially when with a fan, not to mention the price.

How do you get away wit 70C load temps!?!?
My 7900GS (keep in mine, 4 less pipes on the same process-node) hits 85C stock with BF2142!
And after AS5'ing it and putting a fan right underneath it blowing air up at the sink, I still get 81C load!
