I'm trying to find a after market cooler for my gtx 680 with the back plate reference design and I cant stand how loud it is and how bad of a job it does so far. This cooler has caught my eye http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but i don't know if i can fit another radiator in my case without modding it i have a NZXT switch 810 with a H100 pull in here i don't know if a single rad can fit in the back area of the case with this here.

Keep in mind i have never installed a aftermarket cooler on a GPU and simple is nice can someone link me to items that are <$100 that do a good job or tell me i should get the Arctic prefilled liquid cooler.

[I will not be doing custom water cooler right now maybe in a few months.]

Alright so im choosing between 4 of these aftermarket coolers:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - ARCTIC Accelero Twin Turbo II


[I don't know the difference between these 2 but there's a five dollar difference]
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - GELID Solutions Cooler ICY VISION
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-02 Ball VGA Cooler

Are the manuals good in all of these? and is it worth spending $170 on the accelero hybrid and is it compatible with my case if i also have a h100 in it [switch 810]?

if your thinking of doing a custom water loop in a few months.... then think about it really hard if you want to do it. its stupid to buy a $170 cooler for you gpu and turn around and buy a $100 waterblock a few months later.

For what you paid for the H100 and gpu air cooler you can build a custom loop.
