Hi,

What is a decent cooler for a 8800GT?

I love this card, but the newer games are really making it loud!

What cooler would perform better and quieter than the stock one? And be easy to fit. And cool all the other 'bits' on the card properly?

Thanks

The top ones I think are the Accelero S1 (I have this, it's awesome) and one of the Thermalright ones.. (HR-03GT?)

The Accelero is really cheap, and with an undervolted Turbo Module, brought my max load temps down to my minimum idle temps with the stock GT heatsink (56/79 to 37/56.)

Well... I would recommend the Accelero S1 (maybe Rev2 for compatibility). However, if you are talking best, maybe one of the the AC Xtreme can be modded to fit a 8800gt. Currently, they only have compatibility for 9800gtx and g80s.

I wonder if S2 works, HR-03GT is the best one out, but obviously more expensive. I'd go with an acceelero because its best bang for buck

my vote is for the DuOrb, its not the quitest, but cools quite well, and only takes up one slot. my 8800gt with stock cooler and stock speeds would idle at 60C, with the duorb i can overclock it to 740/1825/2000 and it loads at 60C, idles at 40-45C.

If your case is wide enough I would also recommend the Accelero S1. I have one installed passively on my BfG 7900 GS OC and it dropped the GPU temps from 58/85c to 49/56c. And best of all - no noise. Just make sure your case it wide enough to accommodate the S1. You will need ~140mm clearance.
