    I dont know about the Zalman but I have a silencer 2 and it has memory cooling.
    The silencer 2 takes cool air from outside the case to cool the card.Keep that in mind.

    I'd go the silencer, mainly cause i have the 3, they are easy to install (assuming you have the right cooler for the card) and work really well... overclocking from 400 to 440 core for me :)

    Actually the Silencer blows the warm air off the card and OUT of the case ;)

    Zalman products work great as I have one of their CPU coolers. I havent ever used a silencer but I hear they're excellent too so its mainly about your own opinion. Not much really to choose between the two coolers.
