since I have 30 days for a return Im gonna risk it and take off my heatsink from my BFG 6800 GT OC and use some arctic silver on the chip and ram, unless someone can really recommend something better... lol

which would you pick for a card thats sure to be overclocked a lot...

Get the second one (with the round cap) i have it and it works so well
It droped my temps about 5oC idle and 7-8oC when heated up. Its awsome for overclockers.

Any 1 of the 2 top ones... The 3rd one which is a white tube is a no no.

The two silver tubes are the same stuff just different ammounts.

I say get the arctic silver5 for the core, and some ceramique for the memory chips, or just the ceramique because its not conductive. I would recommend the BFG 6800GT, or the XFX. i know that the XFX overclocks well because i got to 425/1180 on stock cooling, and 443/1230 with water.
the leadtek is also sweet because it has a humungo heatsink

decided to get a bit more and ordered http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...100-008&depa=0 ... in a couple days, once it arrives, Ill take off the bfg heatsink and replace their stuff this this as5... if I ruin the card and have to return the card it wont be that bad, I have 30 days for a return... absolute worst is that its out of stock yet again and I have to wait and perhaps try it again

What's wrong with Ceramique? I've got in on my CPU, it's working just fine. I could probably get another degree or two with AS5, but that doesn't make Ceramique a "no no" in my mind.

thats what i bought and it works like a charm
. Just don't over do it when putting it on and you will get awsome results on your temps. Good job man.
