Question which cooler for my video card?

just bought an ASUS GeForce 9600GSO. cheapest price/performance ratio i have seen in awhile. it seems that like other asus cards there is a wee bit of a heat problem.

so will one of the following fit

1.) Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo VGA Cooler

or

2.) Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme 9800 VGA Cooler


thx for advice

Arctic Cooling TwinTurbo supports the 9600GT, though still I can't say it'll fit on the GSO for sure.

You could also try and find this: Arctic Cooling L2 Pro since it seems a bit more generic with support, lists 9600 so I'd guess the whole series.

Fairly sure the Xtreme 9800 will NOT fit since it was only designed for the 9800GTX.

How bout the passive S2 from Arctic Freezer or the Scythe Musashi: Scythe Musashi VGA cooler review

They might work too. All semi-universal ones.

Best way would be to pop off the heatsink on your 9600GSO, measure the mounting holes and look at the surrounding components to see if anything sticks up. With that data, you should be able to make a choice on something that will fit.
