    This product might work:

    Looks like if your GPU follows the reference design that this aftermarket unit would work. Might be worth contacting the vendor to verify, one way or the other. However, I think that since the HD6950/6970 are so new that you may need to wait a while for more alternatives.

    That being said, how is your overall airflow in your system? Do you have the ability to install a side fan to blow cool air into the GPU/CPU area?

    Alos, how hard are you OCing the GPU?

    Have fun!
  6. ok thx for the link airflow is good i have 1 120mm on side next to GPU and 2 80 mm 1 rear and front and i do on OC
  7. What PSU are you using (make/model)? Also, what are your idle temps? If you are maxing at 85, you should be okay. And, how are you measuring your temps (hwmonitor)?
  8. im at 39 C right now im using HW GPU-z and ati overdive
  9. OK. Not too bad. Try downloading and installing hwmonitor (Google it and get the free version). You can use it to plot a temp history to see how it goes up and down over time. Regardless, I think you are okay for now. If you see large spikes over 85, then I would get a little concerned.

    Still need to know what power supply you are using. Have fun!
  10. ok thx for everything
