you can consider modding the case to add a 92mm or thereabouts fan and pointing it @ the card..

the other option you have is to get the zalman heatpipe..

be careful changing the stock cooler... not done properly == dead $400 card...

I would go with a case mod as I said earlier :) or get the big 92mm fan and stick it onto the cooler :)

I think you should get a thermaltake fan for your card (a 25$ one would be fine). Don't ever go to cheaper fans with high RPM. High RPM is not everything for cooling. Good fans come with heat sinks, those are useful.

Make sure that you have good ventilation in your case. To satisfy this need, you need two 80mm fans in your pc case, one to bring in cool air and the other to take out hot air. Those are so cheap and so worthy.

You can find thermaltake fans for good prices on www.xoxide.com
and as sazar pointed, Zalman fans are the other good option.

Good Luck

solution bought myself a air conditioner for my room and tossed the 2 stand fans i had :) and now my temps are 10C atm i m at 35C, where as when i had the fans i was at 45C idle and 50C full load :( , I also bought one of those slot cooler thingys that pulls air out the pci card slot and put it a pci slot between the gfx card

so its

GFX CARD
))))PCI FREE(((((
Slot Cooler thingy
