VGA Heat-Pipe Cooler Roundup 2006

Using the highest performance graphics hardware comes at a cost. Actually, it has many costs: money, power, heat, and noise. Money can buy you a high performance graphics card, and a strong power supply can provide the power it needs... but no matter what you do, that monster graphics processor is going to output a very substantial amount of heat. To make matters worse, cooling that hardware is probably going to be pretty loud, to boot.
Cooler is always better when it comes to graphics processors, as it allows for more aggressive overclocking and longer component life. And if we're making a wish list anyway, quieter would be nice, too.
Who will come to the consumer's rescue? Lucky for us, some knights in shining armor have arrived: companies that have indeed built a better mousetrap.. er, cooler. These are heat-pipe VGA coolers, to be precise; let's have a look at some of the notable contenders.

Tested inside a case (apparantly) but what case cooling was used?
