it just a bit to premature to go out and buy a cooler for a card that you dont even no if it will run hot or not
just wait and see run it first then make your decision

but what about the RAM????
it has no RAm sinks what so ever and your RAm heats will go through teh roof and eventually the card will destroy itself
the stock fans on the X1900XTX covers the RAM aswell cooling them down so in a way its using the fan to do 2 things cool the GPU and the RAM activly
with out that design you would only be cooling the RAM(s) passively and with the clock speeds of them it just wouldnt be able to happen i would suggest not even replacing the fan at all unless you can some way to cool both the GPU and the RAM activly
i found this though which i think is pretty good because it actively cools both the GPU and the RAM:
its called the Arctic Cooling Accelero X2
you can find it here:
http://www.techpower...ling/AcceleroX2 im pretty sure you can use it for the 1900 because it was designed for the 1K series its a shame that they didnt reveiw it on a 1900 but maybe you could find online somewhere
thats my point of veiw

The vf900 is the best cooler you can buy its got the best cooling on the market its also much lighter and smaller than its competition and very easy to install the only possible critique is that it doesnt remove the air from the case but that would be difficult with that type of cooler and you couldnt get that good cooling with a blower.
So the memory cooling thing is just nonsense.
