Aftermarket cooler that fits on a GTX 460 HAWK?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My GTX 460 Hawk developed a sort of coil whine which was starting to irritate me. So was wondering if there was an aftermarket cooler that can fit on it?

Yes, there is/are.

Gelid Icy Vision is one that can be fitted to your MSI GTX460 Hawk. Even though the GTX460 Hawk has non reference pcb design, it does not have double stacked DVI output ports, making it compatible with the Icy Vision. Comparing the Hawk pcb and the Nvidia reference pcb shows no problem, as far as I can see.

This person made the same change from Hawk's Twin Frozr II to Icy Vision and found that temp drops from 74C to 56C. Not sure if you will get the same amount of improvement but one thing is clear:- Icy fits your card.
