Default Cooling 8800GT in SLI

Hi Guys

Been following this forum for a couple weeks and this is my first post. I am building a new gaming rig with two 8800GT in SLI. I am running the rig in an Antec 900 case and was wondering what you guys would reccomend for aftermarket air cooling for GTs in SLI?

Thanks

The Thermaltake Duorb is pretty well-regarded iirc, but honestly I know very little about air cooling. Haha.

Yeah, DuOrbs will do the trick. I am sure the Zalmann VF700/900's would work fine too, and their new VF1000 too. The accellero S1 from Arctic cooling would work, but I don't know if there would be enough room for SLI.

I swear to god, we should begin to threaten you with air one of these days! I can see it already...

"Yaah, turn on the fan Lue!"
"NOOO! I'll talk, I'll talk..."

Aaah good times....I personally enjoy my very bad mafia typing
