eVGA 8800 cooling solutions.

I was wondering if anyone has had any good experiences with a eVGA 8800 fitted with some sort of aftermarket cooling. I'm finding it hard to locate products compatible with the 8800, so any suggestions are appreciated.

I think the 8800 is too new to have any kinds of after market coolers available for it. I know eVga has their own version of the 8800 which is called AC3. It has a better cooling unit on it and also the card is over clocked. So far what i have seen as far as reviews go it seems that the AC3 cards running cooler than the stock 8800GTX. Take a look at it.

Already bought my 8800 though. I figured it was too early for products to appear.

How about a spot cooler? Or maybe one of those dual fan PCI slot VGA coolers. Any opinions on those?

I'm just looking for a solution for now. GPU is idling around 50-60c, which I'd like to reduce.

Yeah i had the same problem. With a good airflow in the case you can reduce at least 5-6C from the idle temps. You can also try the dual fan option in to the slot, behind the video card. See how that works. I never tried one of those myself.

The reason i mentioned the AC3 card is because Evga has the trade up program so you can actually exchange your card for the AC3 if you wanted to. But if you are happy with your video card than don't bother. :)
