Hello Toms looking for some advice on a aftermarket cooler for a XFX 5870. Currently runs at 60c when the comp is idle. When I game (cod 4, Starcraft,) she heats up to 75-80. Fans is at 60% at idle. Xfx says that's normal temp. I just can't see the gpu lasting a long on those temps. I don't have any issues with the gpu at all, but cooler is better. Suggestions on what will fit, and what's good...

Thanks

60'C idle and 80'C full load are normal in case your ambient room temp are high...
What is your room temp?

Case? I'm sure you can make that card more cooler if you have good airflow inside your case...

If it's a stock PCB this is a brilliant cooler, but be aware it's very large, taking up the best part of three slots!

I have one on my HD5850 and even at minimum speed keeps the card under 50C at stock clocks running the Furmark extreme burn test @1920x1200. Also note, I'm in England and it's not as warm here :(  so expect higher temps than mine.

As has been said, if you change the cooler you'll lose the warranty and if you've registered the card for that lovely double lifetimer I'd say leave well alone, XFX are pretty good with the customer support stuff.
