Aftermarket coolers for the 7950 owners?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I realize these things are pretty new to the market but does anyone have a bead on a good aftermarket cooler for the 7950? This card is wicked fast but at a stable 1100 core it doesn't take long for that fan to get up above 60% whilst gaming. I would drop some money right now on a nice aftermarket cooler. BTW, I have the reference Sapphire model.

Or maybe one of you wonderful people have put yours under water and have their dual fan hsf from an Asus, Gigabyte, PC, etc you might like to sell??thumb.gif

Nothing is confirmed yet that I personally know of for these cards. Something about the way the die is offset on the PCB, and that there's a raised edge around the die.

The Accelero is supposed to come out soon to fit these cards though.

Forgive me, I haven't had a chance to look up the hole spacing with the 7xxx series but do the Accelero Xtreme coolers fit on these cards?? Thanks for the suggestion! thumb.gif

Someone should do a review on how well the normal aftermarket coolers (shaman, zalman) do with the EK copper shim in place.
