Any suggestions on a replacement? I don't know which VGA coolers will work on an AGP 6600GT. Stupid HSI bridge heat sink getting in the way.

This is probably one of the best aftermarket aircooling unit out there:

It says it's only compatible with the PCI-E 6600GT. Remember, the AGP version has a different layout because of the HSI bridge, and heat sink dedicated to the bridge that gets in the way of most heat sink/fans.

After doing a bit of searching it seems this fan will fit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835118117

But $30 for a fan on this aging card seems like a bit much... Anybody know of something cheaper that will fit an AGP 6600GT and perform on the same level as the stock cooler or better?

I've been running a VANTEC Iceberq for the last year or so on my AGP XFX 6600GT...OC'ed to 566/1166 with AS5 (only 80% max OC)
