Best fan for 7600 GT XXX

I got my dad on board with the whole "I need a fan or this will happen *shows pic nickS linked me to* So yea he says we'll get one tomorrow. I haven't decided which fan I should get for my 7600 GT xXx I had a NVS Rev 6 but it didn't cool very well and the Zalmans come with ram coolers! :O (like a kids meal for tech freaks lol) So I was thinking to get the Zalman VF700 or the Zalman VF900 the 900 is all copper and is 29.99 the VF700 is ALCU (aluminum and copper) and is 24.something so which would you recommend for me? Keep in mind my cable mangement is teh sux and with a NV silencer 6 my temps were sitll getting into 60s so if you think the vf700 ALCU would be good please vote for the 700 is you think the 900 copper is the ebst then vote for that. Gracias.

The Artic Silencer is a very well respected cooler, and if you have bad cable managment I think it is a very good option as it exhausts the hot air out of the case. My guess is you will see a very marginal difference, but you may even see an increase if the airflow is to low. Do you overclock your card? The reason I ask is because 60c is a safe temperature.

AC has withstood the test of time and usually is regarded as the best cooler you can buy. I'd give it another shot and then also maybe look at how you have your case cooling setup and see if you can't figure out any way to make it more efficient.

Zalman VF900 CU for me, its a great little cooler. AC is also a sweet unit but i just dont like the look of it lol. Am picky that way even though it sits upside down.
