Extreme Cooler for an Extreme Graphics Card: ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 Review
I similarly use the 2 fan version on my 6870 and love it. I imagine it will stick with me through upgrades to the 7870 and 8870.
The only thing I could really hope for is a 2x120mm version (similar to the 6990 version) that could fit on the width/length of a mid-range card. A tall order to be sure, but when the possibility exists to buy a passive sink (like the S-models) and zip-tie a couple thin-body fans, I would love to see a robust heat sink capable of utilizing the power of 120mm fans in a tiny package.
Overkill? Yes. Niche? Yes. Expensive? Surely.
Cool, quiet, and the best conceivable possibility. Do it.
