Hello, TH

I was woundering if any of you know some relase dates for the custom coolers for HD 7970? (i.e gigabyte windforce or powercolor vortex) I've been seen some previews of these and the load temp is lowered with around 10-12 celcius which is very impressive! And do you think it's worth getting a aftermarket cooler vs reference?

Best regards

I would always recommend getting an aftermarket card. Better components, better cooling, better overclockability. Just wait until they are released (whenever that is)

ive only seen 2 waterblocks and 1 cooler for the 7970 so far, been looking around because tthe 7970 black editions from xfx fly off the shelfs within minutes of being in stock quite anoying..
