What fan do you guys recommend putting on my 7800gt to keep it cool while o/cing?

Here's the catch though, I have a Zalman NB47J passive cooler on my asus a8n-e, so I need something that will fit with that there.

The arctic silence 5 won't fit cuz it's too big, but I'm unsure if the zalman vf700 will fit or not. Does anyone have experience with a similar setup?

Also, I was thinking I may wait to get an arctic cooling accelero x1, or the new zalman cooler which is slim (I only read about that briefly)

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

stock fan should be fine, i would buy and extra fan and point it at the card itself.

mate for a 7800 I would reccommend mine to anyone and I suspect alot of people would back me up on it, NV silencer5 rev3 its only about £10 but I have got some good speeds overclocking mine and the temp never goes above 40 even when I play BF2 for 4/5 hours on end

Got mine form micro direct take a look

I know the silencer 5 rev 3 is great, but I had one at first, it was defective so I had to return it, but since it's so big anyway, it won't fit with the cooler I have on my chipset.

That's the thing, I don't know if it will fit or not.

I was hoping there would be someone who has a similar setup and could let me know.

Mate to be honest I would lose the mobo cooler for the fact that well its your mobo and the AN8 is already adequately cooled even when pushed and stick that nvsilencer on

I only put on the mobo cooler because the stock asus fan is a piece of S***. My system is silent otherwise, so I replaced the fan.

I guess I'll wait till the new slim coolers comes out.

Why wouldn't the zalman fit? This is mounted on a PCI-E 6600GT. It doesn't extend past the end of the card.

Yes, the Zalman will fit.
