My roommate and I both own Radeon 8500's, and he recently modded his with the Zalman ZM80+panaflo side blowing fan, so it's in all regards silent now. I was considering doing that with mine, but an opportunity is arising where I can get a Radeon 9700 Pro for free! Now I love me some good framerates, but I also care about noise - my gaming box is actually silent, except for the 8500 and a 15k Cheetah (which is actually really quiet, suprprisingly).

Question is, can I use the ZM80 on the 9700? I guess they are rated for things like GF3s/GF4s and Radeon 8500 level boards, but the 9700 is kind of a monster. Am I pushing it here if I throw on the ZM80?

Apparently this will work because Sapphire (the ATI OEM manufacturer) is advertising a version of their 9700 with the ZM80A "factory Mounted" on it. Their website is down right now or I'd throw up a direct link for you, but try this later: Sapphire
