I am looking for alternate coolers for the 6800GT. Other than the NVS5 that is.

I am looking for something that cools better than the PNY stock cooler, but it not as large as a brick like the NV Silencer. I would like it quiet though.

Any idears?

Are there stock coolers from other vendors that work better/quieter, that you can buy?

zalman fanless heatpipes are all not support, so, may be the VF700-Cu

or go for Thermaltake or coolermaster's heatpipe ones.

the most awesome one I saw is

Sweet jesus, that Evercool unit is a monster. While quiet, that would have to be larger than the NVS5.

I will look at the Zalman cooler, but I am not sure of that one will work. I read a review on it and it was not all that great, although their CPU coolers kick ass.

The new Tt heatpipe with external copper fins looks to be really good, should be worth a try, but it doesn't cool the ram.

otherwise, get the eVGA copper and slow the fan down.

Hmmm... Where can one purchase the eVGA copper cooler? I have not been able to find any for sale...

I belive EVGA's website is the only store where you can purchase them at.

The NV-5 has been updated to address the 'bad fit' issue some have experienced with the original. I really am pleased with my NV-5 even though it is the older model.
