Does anyone know any aftermarket cooler for HD7970
I'm desperately needed a cooler for my HD7970. It gets really hot when I'm playing games so I wanted to switch the cooler to a better one. I know that arctic cooling has a Accelero Xtreme 7970 for HD7970 but is there are any brands also has a cooler for this model? I wanna check out the reviews and compare it before I buy the cooler so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Before you possibly waste money on an aftermarket cooler that...
A. may not help
B. Will void your warranty and if attached wrong could damage or brick your card..
describe your case, and cooling overall.
Usually you can achieve MUCH greater cooling through case cooling than just a heatsink upgrade

Install the free Speed Fan program and get some numbers. It's probably running within design limits. If you want to cool below that, there are ways to do it.
But the hotter is gets, the less margin you have if you screw up.Obama: The rich have the Federal Reserve and the poor have Harry Reid... LOL. Life really is unfair!
