Are there any manufacturers that make a stock cooling solution for the 6800 that blows the air out the back of the case like the new ATI X850. Already have an nvsilencer, looking for a stock card with that type of cooling.

I like the NV5, but down the road if I get SLI it would be nice to have two cards with good air cooling.

Just looked at the Galaxy cards. There really nice. But I think Nvidia has the best cards and ATI has the best cooler.

The ATI cards run cooler than NVIDIA’s that's why the coolers on ATI side is not a big concern at all.

Yea, I'm not even that concerned about how well it cools, I just like the way it looks. (xmasgrin) (the x850)

I have a silencer and it works great. Quiet as a whisper and will never even hit 70C.(full load) But its kind of bulky, and its just an asthetic thing I guess. I'm sure down the road MSI, Leadtek, Albatron or some manufac. will come out with a nice cooler.

It looks more like Geforce FX 5800 Cooler or more like Abit OTES cooler on their Geforce 4, so nothing new.
