Default 9500GT cooler

Got one of these cards for my backup & want to put a good cooler on it. Anyone have one that they upgraded? It's a Palit & has a passive on it but needs something better.

I'd go for the Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo.... the reviews have been quite good for it

It's a really short card though in comparison to the likes of the 8800-9600GT's though. Like Alot shorter lol.

I completely misread that, I thought it was the 9600GT lol oops...

I dont know if there are any aftermarket coolers that will fit the 9500 to be honest.... unless you want to do a single loop WC for jsut the card... but that would be insane overkill for a 9500

This is true. I will be water cooling it later after I get my new gear but for now I just need a good copper cooler with a fan. Will the Zalman VF900 fit it?

I see that the Thermalrite V2 fits it so good enough for me!

Ok so in my semi buzzed state last night I mistook an 8500GT for the 9500GT so still on the hunt for a cooler for this card.
