Idk but I can tell you that you need them tongue.gif Also there's many different brands of heatsinks so that's kind of an imprecise question

they all perform very similar. the biggest difference maker would be the fan blowing over them.

You still need them. I'm running my 7970 with a fan but no heatsinks and I can't stress it haha. WAY too hot.

Hey just did the mod with a very cheap H50 that I got from someone and the dwood bracket. After just doing a 10 minute run of Kumbustor is when it seemed to plateau and my temps on my 6950 hit 59c max on gpu-z (55c on afterburner) and 75c for vrm's. This is at 1.3v at 1029 clock, gotta say I'm really happy with the results and it all cost me under $30.

I was able to perform this mod on a 6950 using a Zalman LQ320 (itself a rebadged Asetek)!

Saw this posted a few pages back. I wonder if it would work with the H80i that I just ordered. http://www.swiftech.com/HD7900-HSF.aspx

Anyone got any other good heatsinks for the 7970?

What about the corsair pumps though? It looks like it should fit but for 40 bucks I want to be sure. I feel like this would be the best solution for cooling the rest of the card. I just hope it works with my pcb layout.

FYI this is not the best solution, but it is more aesthetic

pour info ce n'est pas la meilleure solution, mais c'est la plus esthétique
