would like to lower temp of gpu, not sure if I want air or water cooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'd like to spend less than 50$ on some cooling solution for my gpu and the whole inner of my case ideally. I'm new to this so any suggestions on how to drop the temp of my gpu by 5 celsius and generally drop the temp in my case? Heres my case:

less than $50? jeez that is cutting it close. i would suggest re applying thermal paste. that would lower your temps a bit. if you want a new heatsink all together you could get something like the artic cooling accelero mono plus

50$ isn't really enough to get you very far, but thepoopscooper has some decent suggestions for your budget.

what about this one?... only 13$ and got 5 star reviews. Just concered about the 3 pin connector. The model you suggested had a 4 pin connector. I'm not sure if the 3 pin will work.

that cooler either has a severe mistype on its details page, or is really underpowered for its rpm. 5.9 cfm. if that's true, stay far far away. 5.9 cfm is nowhere near enough airflow to cool a gpu.

I have the ARCTIC Accelero TT II that Pontiac linked to at Amazon on my GTX 570 and it works great. It will most likely get you way below 5C cooler and be a lot quieter.
