    Ok So I'm looking for a 3rd party cooler for my BFG 9750 gt card.

    Which is better:

    Zalman or Artic Cooling

    I would say the artic cooling because it actively cools the video ram while the Zalman only has passive heatsinks.

    I'd vote Zalman, it moves enough air over those heatsinks to make up for the fact its not actively cooling them. I'm a Zalman fan though.

    I vote for the Zalman, I have the VF900Cu and it is great.

    the 900 is better for sure.

    the 700? dunno. i'd probably swing for the arctic cooling one if it's between those too.

    i say go for the zalman 900 if you can stretch.

    Both Zalmans come with individual RAM heatsinks...

    The Zalman fits on the BFG Model, cuz I've read reviews and people say it doesn't fit well. Got pics??
