Thanks for the posts guys im looking into those coolers now, Noise isn't really an issue for me and neither is size as I have it in its own storage room, i wont be running a case and I just run the wires to my desk. I wasn't even thinking of the clearance issues with the ram heatsinks so thats a good point

I just got a notice that the 6850's are on backorder so i was thinking of going with the XFX 6870's instead

Edit, I just noticed this cooler, while pricey it gets really good reviews and i would rather not upgrade my cooler down the road... thoughts?
