    Wherever I can find the iron.
    I'm looking to put aftermarket cooling on both of the Asus 4850's that I just bought. They need to NOT be huge. What are my options??

    The only way I know to keep them "skinny" is to go with a full coverage waterblock. That said, the thinnest air cooled solutions I can find are the Scythe Musashi and the Vantec Iceberg 6. Both are 33~35 mm thick with fans.

    The Thermalright V2 is pretty low profile and excepts 80x15mm fans. Not sure if they fit the 4850 though.

    Edit: On Thermalright's website they are stated as 27.6mm tall before adding a fan, so around 35-40mm

    I have the Iceberg 6 on my HTPC and its quiet and cools ok, but doesn't move that much air.

    How about this one
