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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
