The Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 doesnt seem to make a very big difference in temps from the reviews I have seen. Can anyone suggest a good cooler (air) for a 700GTX because mine gets up to 75c under load which worries me a little.

the zalman vf700-cu cooled my 7800gt pretty good

stock:
idle- 45
load- 75

zalman:
idle- 35
load- 65

BTW maybe you didnt install your cooler correctly? i thought the NV Silencer was a decent cooler?
Also ambient temperatures play a HUGE roll in your system temps so keep that in mind

I dont have the Arctic cooler im using stock but looking at reviews of the arctic it doesnt seem to make that huge of a difference? Is there an air cooler for gfx cards that will make my temps 50c or lower? Or with these super fast cards do you need water cooling to get temps that low?

and with a water system u can overclock to hell and back and never have to worry bout your temps getting to high,so i think water systems are the way to go now, and in the future...
