Can anyone point me at a good passive (fanless) heatsink for a GeForce3 Ti 200.

I have the Gainward 450, a red card with a little red fan. Little fan but big noise, at 30db it is louder then both the fan in my PSU and on my CPU combined.

And it only pushes 2.9CFM!

I was thinking of going with a crystal orb at 26db because it's a little quieter, but I found out that the dell OEM GeForce3 Ti 200 uses a passive heat sink with no fan

So if I don't care about overclocking and I do care about noise it would seem that a good passive heat sink is the way for me to go.

I see a lot of generic VGA heatsinks: Would a generic VGA heat sink work or do I need something special/big for the GeForce3 Ti 200?

find a nice socket 7 hs and epoxy or tape it on (use the 'permanent' double sided tape they sell at staples). should work fine. or if you have an old voodoo3 3000 use its hs, with the push pins, that's the same hs as on the dell oem card.

A CORB is not quiet either. Do a 7 volt mod to the fan that is on the card to quiet it down.
