Need a good cooler for a GTX555 card!!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Any help with aftermarket coolers for a Dell GTX555 card that is quieter than the original? I play a few min. of a game and she goes to screaming. Good card so far. Lost a BFG9800GTXOC card and got this one for around $60 so it was a steal on my budget. Yes!!! There is a difference with the new card than the older one...much better graphics!!!!!

Chuck D
Thanks in advance.

The Twin Turbo II is also a good cooler that will provide airflow over the whole card.

Either cooler should be quite a bit quieter, and cooler, than the stock cooler.

You might be better off just selling the card and buying a new one.

A 650TI for instance runs cooler, takes less power, is quieter, and performs significantly better all for under $130.

After factoring in the profits you make from selling the 555, a new cooler isn't that much cheaper than a whole new card.

Great idea..but on a budget with being disabled. I can only afford a few spends here and there.

Thanks anyway.

Checking to see if this cooler:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7983390&CatId=99
will work with my card. Arctic will email me soon ..so I may get lucky with my budget.

No benchies just games when I can. Just tired of the screaming fan syndrome while playing. Temps get near 70* at load but at 65* she is squeeeeellling my nerves off.
