That'll depend on the card. The GTS 320/640, GTX, and Ultra use one bolt pattern, the GT and GTS 512 use another, and I'm pretty sure that the 8600 uses yet another.

Which 8X00? The AC accellero and the duorb are pretty popular these days

I'm most interested in 8600 series (gt and gts)

I know a bunch of people with this card, who want to
go aftermarket cooling. Problem is, several aftermarket
coolers not labeled to support, support 8800 series,
but there isn't much mention of 8600 series...

For a 8600 my vote goes to the Arctic Cooling Accelero.

Zalman also has some nice video card coolers.
