Default Gtx 275 air cooler

Hey back guys, I was looking at something dead silent to cool my GTX 275. The stock cooler is silen but...you know...I like to change fan and thing like that:P Now I am searching for the best cooling solution. I already have own a accelero twin turbo for my 4870 but I don't really like the look of their cooler. I would like to know if you guys know a good compromise between Arctic cooling silence and size + thermalright look. Also the best combination RAD+FAN for this card you guys have tried out. Also, if there is some more company you know except the 2 previous it would be nice (I don't think zalman is a cooling brand. )

Ask for more.

HR-03GTX - Big, nice looking, can be reverse mounted. Needs a VRM cooler
Accelero GTX280 - Not so big, lots of fans, not that loud but not too quiet, VRM cooling sucks (i.e. 120C+, card will not function right)
Trad-2 GTX - small. Presumably does not cool as well. Not out yet. Not sure on VRM....

Then you really have problems with VRM cooling though

I would suggest some Enzotech MOSFET heatsinks.

The 275 stock cooling is on of the best around I know we all have upgrade-itis but I think you should just stick with the stock cooling

Mine is very silent. I was worried b/c my 8800GT with a vf900 was dead silent. I thought the stock cooling on this gtx275 was going to drive me crazy, but I hear.... nothing!
