Default eVGA 7800 GTX cooling

Hey all, I have 2 original eVGA eGeForce 7800 GTX's, (not the KO series) and I was wondering what would be the best option for a cooling addon, whether it be liquid or just fan and heatsink. Just wondered what everyone's thoughts are on it.

If you're going with air cooling, the Zalman Fatal1ty FS-V7 or the VF700-Cu LED are nice. If you don't need any LED ones, just get the VF700-Cu.

also it doesn't say that it's compatible with the 7800 on the site, is this just because of late updates?

I'm guessing close to $2,500-$3,000 USD. Not bad though.

It should fit. I'll ask one of my friends. He has a SLI configuration and he says he uses the VF700-Cu's.

I think it's just that they haven't updated it in a while. I think the memory chip and core placement is still the same. Same with the mounting holes.

EDIT>>> Oh btw, please only have 5 lines in your signature maximum. Thanks.

What I plan to do if I do get an SLi config using 7800GTX's would probably use a PCI exhaust blower on the bottom of the second card.

MASSCOOL 4F01B4 110 x 90 x 20 mm Ball Case Cooling Fan
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150006

I'm not sure about the clearance between the two cards and whether that Zalman can fit in between your 7800 cards but here's the dimiensions for it:

91(L) x 126.4(W) x 30(H)mm

That's for this, the one Alvino posted earlier:
ZALMAN VF700-CU 2 Ball VGA COOLER
