Need a new HSF for HD 5770

I picked up 2 XFX 5770's and they run great, much better than my GTX 460.
Just sad that the FPS dips a lot in games that allow dedicated Physx. (BC2 goes down to 5 fps when a building gets hit with destruction 2.0)

I haven't started overclocking the cards yet. The bottom card is doing great, hasn't broken 55c. The top card however, just hit 85c. I usually like to keep my hardware at 70c tops, so I'm looking to buy a new cooler for it. I will be purchasing off of Newegg, but I don't see much for compatibility.

Motherboard is MSI 890GTX-G65.
PSU is Rocketfish Gaming 500 Watt.
Case is NZXT Phantom; it has great airflow.

The cooler cannot take up more than 2 slots since my board has the pci-e 1 slot away from each other.
Currently looking at Zalman and Xigmatek coolers.

Thanks for reading,

- Matt

hd5770 is very good card but i'm not sure if you can run PhysX on 2x5770 may want to check with ATI/Nvidia/mobo experts on this forum,as for cooling your cards (5770 are one of the coolest running card out there .I would suggest reapplying new TIM like MX-2 and improving you case air flow
