The Zalman is quite universal. I would give it a shot. If you have to go back to stock cooling, replace the heatsink compund with Artic Silver.

The Silencer fits on the 7900GT, has the 7600GT the memory chips in the same location?

Here is the thread where shabby squeeze a Silencer on a 7900GT, maybe it will help you?

Try the AlCu. Much lighter, very close performance wise...

The Zalman VF700 fits the 7900GT with no problems at all. I have the CU model on mine in 5V silent mode, and love it.
