I used the Nv Silencer on my Xgigabyte 6800GT.
Great Product but you have to be sure that your case is mostly dustless.

The eVGA board seems to have adequate stability, but the overclocking support just isn't there. If you want to overclock a 939, you need some fairly decent variables to tweak, and the big names will give that to you.

I'd recommend the Zalman myself, as it looks FAR better.

Let me Guess........ ( Massri ? )
It's only a guess because you said chieftic case and those are wild there (xmasgrin)

Now to be honest with you, I've never used the Zalaman solution but I heard it's good and I have to add that the Silencer is no less.
If you can find them locally ( not imported ) I might go again with the Silencer.

VF 700 in my oppinion. First off, I think it's better cooling for the GPU. Because the GPU and mem do not make contact (like with the NV silencer) The ram is also better cooled with the vf700.

The other main point is that if you want to get a new card you won't have to buy a new silencer. Just take the VF700 off and slap it on the new card.

I like my ARCTIC COOLING AVC-NV5R3 NV Silencer Rev.3 on my sli setup (2 7800gtx) one great feature I like is that it vents out the hot air created by your video card out of your computer.(snow=D)

Since you are from egypt I would go Zalman.
Dust Dust Dust.

By the way,may I ask you a question, did you find any SLI PSU in egypt ( especially in the computer malls in Nasser City ) ?

I'm going there in January ( my mom is Massreyah :D ) And I own 2 houses there and I would love to buy an SLI PSU.

Wow I like it....and very cheap too...still I'm looking for more power....I need something like at least 500 watt.
But ya I've used the HEC PSU and they are very good.

480, 500 whats the difference. You arent worried that 480 (if good quality) wont be enough (nuts)

Btw: which cards are you going to be running SLI? 7800GTX 512MB?
