Could try an after market cooler. I just got my XFX 8800GS today and put a Zalman VF900-CU on it and now I can adjust the fan, and can hardly hear it. :)

you could easily throw another cooler on it. stick an accelero S1 and it will be completely silent, as it has no fan.

No you wont, if something goes wrong with the card, you just put the origional cooler back on before you RMA it.....simple really.

I recently purchased this card and am not really satisfied. Ok, the card seems to perform well but it's fan makes more noise than my vacuum cleaner! Even when it has no hard work to do. For a friend I've put a HD3850 in his machine, but that one you can hardly hear. Now I'm going to try to get me money back :(
Just use Rivatuner, and set the fan speed to a good mix of cooling and noise level. Very easy to do.

I tried that and never worked. Either Rivatuner don't recognize the card, or it's locked in the bios. So I put the Zalman VF 900-CU on it. Now you can just barely hear the fan. :)

You might need to edit the config file. I had to manually add gts(g92) to get it to work properly. Hunt around on the guru3d site, you should be able to find something.:)

I dig up this thread ;)

You can't change fanspeed of the XFX 880oGS : it's blocked on 100% and the connector is a 2 pins one so, no v-mod ;)
Riva Tuner ( updated in its cfg file ) recognize the card but can't modify fan speed ( see up ).

I opted for a Zalman VF900-Cu too :D ... assembly on next tuesday :cool:

I put a Thermaltake dual orb on mine and it is flat out great for these cards. It's near silent , looks great and my card doesn't break 43c underload plus it has six blue leds, it's solid copper and ha ram heastsinks out the AZZ. The accelero s1 cools better but is alot bigger (and is not as good looking). These 8800 gs run even cooler than the 8800gt and 8800 gts about 10 to 17 degrees with the same cooler so it doesn't take much. The accelero is the best cooler for temperature, but these cards run so cool they need little or nothing. I thought the 3870, 8800gt and 8800gts ran cool but these are even cooler running.
