VGA Cooler for a 9800 Pro/XT

I was wondering what a good cooler would be for a 9800 Pro. However until recently, I discovered my card was equipped with the R360 cores and I soft modded the 9800 Pro to an XT. Now I don't know if my card is actually a 9800Pro PCB, or the XT one. Most coolers (Iceberq, VGA silencer) don't specify the 9800XT on their compatibility lists.

With the new speeds for the core and memory, I believed it was time to throw away the stock cooler. Any suggestions for a cooler? Thanks.

Note: Card is the ATI 9800Pro 256 MB Hynix version, R360 core. (with the funny squarish cooler)

Yes, as I mentioned in my note, it is the 256 MB version. If it is indeed the XT PCB, what coolers are out there for this card?

I take it you dont wanna go watercooled? cause if you could, Aseteks waterchill is more than suited to bot 9800pro and 9800xt! plus its go great potential. Check it out a www.asetek.com, let us know what you decide

Well thanks for the suggestions, would you guys suggest the VGA silencer or the Vantec Iceberq (non-pro)?

I'd love to go to water-cooling solutions, and from previous threads I was interested in the Koolance Exos. However, right now it is EXTREMELY difficult to obtain any sort of good watercooling kit in Toronto, Canada. Asetek waterchill kits aren't even available to Canada on eBay!

i would check my review here:Zalman ZM80D-HP Review

this is by far the best cooler on the market when paired with a fan of 28cfm or so....ANY FAN.

do not buy those coolers for your card. they will NOT be sufficient, and nor will they fit the xt pcb. i have 3 iceberqs here, and of both sizes..they did not perform as well as my current zalman cooler.
the artic silencer is not compatible with your cxard, but if you take a carefull look online ,you may be able to find the newer products from artic silencer...one of the 3 revisions will fit your card.

Here is a CAD of one I was going to be making for a guy, deal fell through though. It never got any further than the design stage and not sure if it would fit just the brand of card he had or if all layouts are the same. I could provide dimensions if anyone is interested in making one up.
