MSI R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC noise & new cooler suggestion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Howdy y'all,

Got my new machine 2 months back, and while the system, including the gfx-card, works like a charm, I'm VERY annoyed with the excessive noice coming from the two smallish fans that were installed on the card from the manufacturer.

I love the card and it's power, but the noise of the fans are killing me to such a degree that I'm considering changing the fans. This is where I need help (not changing the fans, I've done that several times before) but with what fans are the better, and what exact fan will FIT on the card?

I looked at Zalman (I've used their fans many times before), and Arctic, but I'm not sure which fans will fit on this specific card.

Any suggestions, brand & model-wise will be greatly appreciated smile.gif

Thanks alot! smile.gif

Have you thought about increasing airflow in your case so they don't spin up as high?

Also did you ask MSI about it? You might be able to get a new fan shroud.

Also look at Arctic Accelero, but it's about $40 (normally ~$60) and I don't think it has enough cooling power. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186052

Might need the $70 7970 version if you go aftermarket route http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186064

Thanks for your reply!

I have pretty good airflow in the cabinet, 120mm fans x3 and I feel heat getting blown out, so it's getting it out.

I have not yet contacted MSI, good idea!

I did look into the Arctic 7970, even asked them if it fitted on the board, they did not know, and that's mostly the reason I'm here smile.gif
