lol I have no idea, but I use a Zalman heatsink and it is REALLY good

edit: just go to newegg and look at the reviews, most of the people post temps and stuff so that should be helpful.

Yeah exactly, summertime has been bringing my temps up BIG TIME. I continuously re-apply my thermal paste to try and keep things cool, but those temps just don't wanna go down. They never really get too serious though, like too close to the CPU's limit or anything, and putting the AC on in my house cools things down a lot.

I have heard that I cannot run the Leadtek 6800GT in SLI because the heatsink is sooo big, is this true?? If you need pics, refer to first post pls.

Alright! Almost done with the final list, however I am looking for a new case.

Just about the last thing I need, so help in finding one would be great.
Needs to be pretty good size, and atleast places for 2 80mm fans, and 1 120mm fan.

No luck for me, so if you know of some that don't look terrible for around $50 that would be great if you'd post a link.
