5870 cooling

alright people i am loving my OCed 5870 with a 950core and 1300mem and 1.32v with stock cooling, but temps are still reaching 70c. does anyone know of a really good aftermarket cooler i can use. i do not want it too big as i plan to add another 5870 to my computer.

my 1100core and 1370mem clocks are reaching 90c and i need a better cooler.

  1. Arctic Cooling makes some nice VGA cooling. If your concerned about cost a good cooler is : Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo Pro is good.

    Another good product, but is a bit pricey is the Accelero Xtreme 5870.

    Haven't found reviews but seems to be much quieter than stock cooling.
  2. i was looking at the twin turbo one, but from what i have seen its terrable at cooling the RAM. everything that i seen on the TT was that the stock ram cooliong was 10 and sometimes 20 degrees C lower than the TT. so that leads me to belive the Xtreme wont be much different.
    also do you know any free software i could use to monitor all my GPU settings likr RAM, MEM, etc.
  3. Umm Yes for GPU but no on the Ram and MEM, for the GPU I use Afterburner, and since you've oc'd your card i'm assuming you've already looked at that. Zalman also makes good VGA/RAM coolers so :P you could check those out.
  4. yea i have been looking at some of zalmans RAM & mem coolers but my concern is whether or not is will fit under the massive cooler. and i have decided on the xtreme modle. and yes i do use afterburner.
  5. i think i will go with the swiftech 5870 uni-sink that they have, and the Xtreme cooler. my issue with the swiftech is will it fit under the AC Xtreme.
  6. It looks like it will but i'm not sure, i guess you'll have to guess on that one.
  7. it says its .7 inch high and i am looking to see how high the AC ones are.
  8. Wait wait wait, cry_monster, what do you mean by Swiftech unisink for the 5870? That's only meant to be coupled with their water cooling block for the GPU, I highly doubt any air cooler will fit over the top of the fins.

    some people say it works with there air cooled system. you just have to get a aircooled system that will fit.
