Im in the same boat but with my GTX295

You will find it very hard to find a aftermarket cooler at all because the 4870x2 is a bit out dated now its a shame because there powerful card's

There is a few water-blocks on eBay but water-cooling will cost you

Is the heat giving you any issues ? Have you cleaned it and put new thermal paste it since you have had it ??

My last card was an ATI 4870x2 and because of the unique positioning of the 2 GPU's on the PCB you can only attach a 4870x2 ONLY aftermarket cooler, and they stopped making them, I looked for 6 months. The best you're going to find is waterblocks for the card. thumb.gif
