It says on the website that ZM17CU is compatible with all brands, so you can fit it. Whether the cooling will be adequate is another question.

To be on the safe side, you could try a quiet 120mm fan in your case positioned on top of your video card with a bracket which hooks on top of a PCI slot. I think you can get them from click here.

On further inspection, the heatpipe solution from zalman appears to be better, but still stick with a bracket+fan in my opinion to improve cooling.

i think it depends on the mounting wholes on your graphics card whether you can mount the zalman.

having looked at my graphics card, i have no idea where to begin - just know that i want to get rid of the noisy fan - and the zalman solution seems more than reasonable

The Zalman heatpipe system is very good, but certain criteria has to be met as it takes up a lot of space,you'll find the details here click here model No. ZM80A-HP
