Yeah, I have some Zotac cards here that have the cooler. It also has more slots at the top end of the cooler to allow more air to exhaust. A much better cooler.

Actually, I'm quite happy with the Accelero S1 / dual Scythe 120mm setup I have on the 8800GT. Honestly, I don't beleive I'll ever choose water-cooling again for video cards - not worth the hassle when air cooling performs so well.
