Asus HD 6950 DirectCU II crossfire cooling help urgent

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all i need help this is my setup

HAF 932 advanced
Asus maximus iv extreme
i7 2600k @ 4.2
2x Asus HD 6950

Ok so i have the 6950s in crossfire and they work good but they get hot i have the side fan on them and i have a fan blowing on them from inside the drive bays and the top card still gets to the high 70s when gaming. Now i was looking into installing Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME Plus II on each of the cards and hopefully overclocking them. Do you think the cooler would fit on the Asus 6950s because i don't know if their reference or not. Please help me out thank you.

First question: have you turned up your fan speeds for each card? Also, high 70's is still ok if it odesn't bother you too much.
