I'm not sure why you have an aversion to the so called 'generic' coolers. It's not logical to factor out good heatsink options just because they support a lot of different cards. I may be wrong in this assumption but based on what you've written, it does certainly seem so.
Oh, I'm definitely ready to consider all options. I just though that a "specifically" engineered solution, where all the attention has been put towards finding the best solution for a specific card would be the better option. I remember quite a few stories of incompatibilities, or slight modding necessary to "make fit" a product that was "supposed" to be a perfect fit...

i'll definitely look at the review from Silentpc that you pointed out to me!

Edit: That Twin turbo seems to be well appreciated by users. It's make to "wick-out" 120watts, but the Accelero Xtreme 5870 is designed for 250 watts...might be even better! I guess I would have to find a solution for these "never stick enough" RAM sinks and VRM sinks...I heard about some epoxy compound that could be there such thing as a thermal-conductive epoxy for Ram sink usage?
