I have a PNY Verto GF4 MX 420 and I use the Vantec Copper Iceberq.

Here's the link to the Vatec site.

http://vantecusa.com/iceberq_copper.html

I got mine here:

https://www.bestbyte.net/Category.cfm?CategoryID=6&Keyword=

It is at the very bottmom of the page for 9.95. It shows the aluminum version but it is actually the copper.

 Works great on my card and dropped my GPU temps by almost 5 degrees C.

 Almost forgot, Maje sure to get some Arctic Silver 3 to use with that cooler, it is well worth the investment. Don't use the thermal tape that comes with it or the thermal goop.

As far as needing the adhesive. Does your card have little plastic pins holding the heat sink on?  If it does then you don't need the adhesive.

  As far as the chrome orb goes I don't know. Go to the thermaltake site and check what the dimensions on the heat sink are and then check for the availible space on the card.

 I recommended the copper Iceberg for two reasons.

1. It is REALLY shiny. so it looks cool

2. it is also all copper and small so it will fit almost any video card.

  Anyways good luck man. I personally like the cooler I got better cause it is quieter than the orbs.
