    I just put on a Zalman 700. I like how mine came with tiny ramsinks (IDK if thats the norm) for the memory.

    The ATI 5 rev. 2 scilencer is another option but I didn't like how it cools the memory, although most of the heat is exhausted out of the case unlike the Zalman.

    So really I think either is a good choice.

    ^Don't get VF900-Cu because it doesn't beat the VF700-Cu by that much, and also, the VF700-Cu beats it depending on ambient temps and such.

    I have a VF700-Cu on my Radeon X800XL (not AIW) and it's overclocked to 439/538 and EMT and I get about 33-35 idle and 49-52 load.

    I use Arctic Silver 5. Works great. Just don't get it in any transistors/resistors on the card.

    BTW, my cards temps vary A LOT!! If I put my comp in my room at normal temp. I get 40 idle and 62 load. If A/C is on, 36 idle and 55 load. If I put my card in the guest room (which is where I am right now) I get the temps I listed earlier, 33-35 idle and 49-52 load.

    oh...I tought that zalman would cool better.. With my (now dead) X800XT PE at stock speed (520/560) I was getting 31-32 idle and 43-45 load with an Ati Silencer 5 rev 2...but it doesen't fit on a X800 AIW:cry:
