    Ok so I have my choices narrowed downed to these

    ARCTIC COOLING Accelero X1 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186001

    $19.99 + $4.99 shipping = $24.98

    ZALMAN FC - ZV9 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118011

    [​IMG]

    $44.99 + $4.99 = $49.98 (cheaper than the plain LED version)

    Thermalright HR-03 Plus - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835109136

    [​IMG]

    $54.99 + $5.64 = $60.63

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have read a decent amount about all three and I am really just looking for first hand experiences or hear say on any of them. I'm looking to push my 7900GT KO as far as possible on air cooling and I'm trying to wait for the Nvidia 9 Series to be released before I'll buy another video card. Also suggest any cooler that you feel are superior to these three.

    Lets hear it guys.

    any of those will keep a 7900 very cool, but I would go with the vf900. I have the vf700 on my 7900gs and it is great, and the vf900 is much better. You can expect a big overclock on it. They should all be quiet enough for that not to be a factor. If you really are wanting to get every drop of performance out of your card, the thermaltake will be the best if set up right. mount a 120mm fan on that huge heatsink that looks fit for a cpu rather than a gpu and you will see some good temps!

    that price is a little high on that vf900 though. There's one for $36.99

    just a little comparison: with the vf700 my temps are like 39idle/55load compared to 49idle/67load, so you will see much cooler temps with any of those which are all better than what i have.

    Accelero, cheap works quiet. What more can you want?

    I've got the 900 and it is a very good case, really god airflow. Fragmaster has one too but i love this case, made really well, and the 200mm fan at the top =)

    I love it. If you were to get this case plaus the thermalright GPU cooler, well, you'll be laughing =)

    The zalman is good, but the fan controller is ugly.

    I have vf700 and it did no help when OCing my 7900gs. It tops out at 620/710 on both stock and vf700 cooler. Just ask youself, will a $50 cooler give you $50 worth of performance? i doubt it.

    try this EVERCOOL turbo2. best bang for the buck.
