    I was asking myself would the nv silencer 5 or something ( the nvidia 6800 one ) get better cooling results for my 6800gt ?
    since it already has a pretty big cooler

    i think so ....
    even if they don't perform better than the stock cooling ... they don't perform worse ..

    but they are quieter!!!

    imo they perform better ... (read some reviews) ... AC allways made their coolers perform very good ..

    (i got the vga silencer --> nice one!!!)

    Man! Dust! LOL! I hate dust. Btw, to prevent stuff like that happening again, open ur pc every 2-3 months and clean the dust out with a brush(even the PSU and other components with fans). Helps the temps a lot.
