Add the Ultra U12-40659 Carbon X4 to the list I just got two of them and they fit with no modding .temps are down a lot and they make no noise but the best part is the price.$35 each and get this its the same as the XIGMATEK Bifost with a different sticker and price .lol links below

Ultra U12-40659 Carbon X4 =$34.96

XIGMATEK Bifost =$44.99

EDIT: the carbon also has a 4 pin connector to power the fan from the video card but the xiggy uses a 3 pin case fan connector

Does anybody know if you can buy a twin frozr 2/3 kit to put on a 6870? I have been looking but am having no luck finding the kit(if it exists).

Thx guys for adding the info, I just updated the thread. It's been a while.
It does become a bit complicated now that custom boards are out. If you have a Trad you should check if you have the same kind of board as Mentalcrisis00 ( page 7 )

Top card max temp:78c 970/1120 1.25v

Bottom card max temp: 81c 970/1120 1.18v


not that good at posting pics and this one is big.first some info the cards are 6850's not 6870's so this is a pretty huge overclock and furmark is maxed out msaa x8,xtreme burning mode ,and post fx on.stock for these cards is 790/1000 this pic is of them both at 970/1120 for 45mins.Ambient temp was 26c.


before the coolers these clocks were only possible for suicide benchmark runs with way too much voltage and I saw 99c in one run of heaven 2.1..Now I can game all day at these settings and most games move the cards off idle very little.games that aren't to damanding like bulletstorm maxxed out stays 51c.My fan is set to hit 100% just above 70c but the cards never get that hot and the fans are silent at any rpm.

not the best coolers on the market but you cant get anything half as good for the price.DONT get the bifrost a xigmatek sticker is not worth $10

I think I need some help. I just installed a Twin Turbo Pro, and the fans are spinning but I have no fan control. Everything is plugged in (if it weren't they wouldn't be spinning). Has this happened to anyone before?

Use a program like Afterburner to do fan control for TTP. RPM readings will get funky (least for me) and say I'm in the millions for RPM if I change it to anything except 100%. I keep it at 100% anyway. But you should barely notice the fan's audible noise change when you do fan control via a program like afterburner.

Yes they were very funky just as you described. So I am getting fan control, I'm just not noticing it? If so, then I'm not very impressed by this cooler. Noise is down a lot, but temperatures are about the same. The thermal paste is not cured yet I'm sure, so that could have something to do with it.
