Sparkle GeForce GTX 460 - Alternative cooling solution?
Hi, I have a question. I built the December 2010 $500 gaming rig from Tom's Hardware, last year. It uses a Sparkle GeForce GTX 460 w/768MB of VRAM as the graphics card. I've upgraded a few components since then (added more RAM, replaced the power supply), but I digress.
The Sparkle card is really loud. Like, almost annoyingly so. My roommates have complained about it, but I don't think that I really want to replace the entire card. It's a good card - it's just too loud.
My question is: Is there anything that I could replace the fan/heatsink on this thing with? Do third-party coolers and the such for this kind of card exist? I admit that I'm not really the best at knowing my parts - so any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Awesome, thank you sir. Just one more thing. Is there documentation somewhere for removing the current fan/heatsink? I looked through the manual - They don't exactly tell you how to get it off, unfortunately.
