Where can i get a water cooler for the XFX Radeon 7870 DD Edition?

My graphics card gets very hot when i play games so i am looking for a water cooler that will go on and hopefully cool it down. I don't want to make a full water cooled loop, i don't know if i could do that yet. I need one that you just fill up and screw on.
The Temperature playing bf4 is form 51 - 60 C


Thanks

    I don't think you can. There are good aftermarket air coolers though it your temperatures are too high. Graphics cards can run hotter than CPU's okay.
    What are the temperatures?

  2. It runs about 50 - 60 C
  3. Oh i missed the temperatures on the first post.:)
    Those temperatures are perfectly normal for a graphics card while gaming so don't worry.
    The new AMD 290x graphics cards are designed to run at 95 degrees:D
  4. i have the same card but mine runs alot hotter, about 70c on bf4 and it hit 92c on furmark in a minute before i stopped the program. i already blew out most of the dust, which it shouldnt even have considering ive only had it for about 2 maybe 2 and a half months.
  5. 70 degrees is also okay but if your worried get a couple of case fans to increase the airflow in the case. 1 intake and 1 exhaust will be fine.

    my issue is i have to cap bf4 to 50 fps to prevent the gpu from going to full load so it doesnt overheat. I currently have 1 front intake and 1 rear exhaust with another exhaust on the top. i have another top slot free, 2 sides, and the bottom free as well. the exhaust fans are pretty weak, but the intake fan is quite powerful. im going to microcenter today to pick up a new headset il check out some cheap fans, noise isnt too much of an issue for me considering the GPU sounds like an f18 hornet with the afterburner on so i dont need noctuas or cougars. im gonna try to get 4 fans, 2 for side intake, and 2 for top exhaust.
