Any suggestions for something that will work well?

I don't necessarily need a monstrous product, it's just the temps of 60C idle and 79C load are not exactly ideal.

That and the video card is twice as loud as anything else in my case :(

Cheers.

The thermalright one. It's huge but, with a 120MM fan, its very good according to reviews.

Water cool it using a MC 60 water block from Swiftech and necessary radiator, pump etc ;)

usually the bigger the better. Dont expect to get a small aftermarket cooler on a giant card like that to keep it cool. If you want a quiet or noiseless cooler your going to have to get one that has a giant heatsink.

Try an Accelero S1 http://www.************/read.php?cID=1153

What about something like i have on my GT? ... The Zalman (VF900-CU) Active VGA Cooler! ..... small, very efficient & very quiet.

The stock heatsink on the 8800gts 512 is more than sufficient, it just seems you're running it at stock speeds or your case ventilation isnt that good.
Mine idle's at 40c and at load hits 50c, this is all thanks to my ghetto cooler ;)
