Default 6800GT Cooling

Anyone know of some good cooling things for a eVGA 6800GT. I plan on overclocking it and I heard they run a little hot so I was thinking about getting some aftermarket cooling for it. I was looking at this but im not too sure

Also I heard about a NV Silencer 5 but I cant find it on Newegg

EDIT: I just saw this one on newegg, any good?

yeah space is probably going to be a problem in my case when I get the 6800GT put in so the smaller it is the better
