GTX470 100C in game! NEED HELP! - Page 2

post #11 of 43
you have 3 choices:

1. run the cards at stock clocks so they won't overheat
2. buy cards that have aftermarket cooling
3. water cool your cards.

You could watercool it, but it gets expensive. Just get aftermarket coolers for it. Don't water cool, it's addictive and keeps taking your money.

then can you recomend good after market coolers. My pc does run better with side panel off but that defeats the purpose of the Haf x i want to be able to run with side panel on.

Download MSI afterburner and set up a custom fan profile. When I had 400 series Fermies it really helped to keep them cooled off. Usually a 1:1 ratio does the ticket
