Normally i would say get a zalmann they are the best but SLI complicates matters as two would be expensive and you could only fit one on your bottom(or top depending on orientation) card. yould probably be best with an arctic silencer the old model the new models again are pretty big.

But to be honest SLI is loud its one of the many disadvatages.

i know! i got a zalman vf700-cu off ebay got it at 28bucks new still in box. is it a good deal??? is it ok just to put one and im planning to just hook up a ordinary fan inside the case to circulate the air. coz one of the cards reads 66c and the other 55. one more thing how can you check the temp when playing games??? like quake, doom3 etc.

i read somewhere that the xfx 7600 have some irregular fanmount holes so you might wanna confirm that before you go and buy an vf900 (best air vga cooler)

Well you could fit it to one, but the one you would fit it to probably isnt the one that needs the extra cooling and it wouldnt improve the other, the only HSFs that really work in sli are the blowers like the arctics they arent as good as the zalmans but you havent left yourself with the choice.
