I really like how that cooler can use the graphics card's onboard PWM to control the fan speeds. Reviews so far don't seem to be exceptionally promising though. But then again it was only tested on the Fermi, which all the aftermarket cooling companies seem to be avoiding like the plague.

I've bought a lot of Zalman GPU and CPU coolers in the past and have never been disappointed in the build quality. They're never quiet at max speed though, and performance is rarely at the absolute top of the charts. (although they're always up there)

The AC coolers for the 5870/5850 will be hard to find, you're better off getting an Accelero for cheap and doing a little creative modding. Just add some heatsinks for the VRMs.
