Yeah, I'm not very excited about that. Especially when I have no experience with things like that.

you don't have to do that, you might be able lower the temps by 2C but that is it.

In that case, I'm not interested in doing and modifications like that. What card would you recommend in the $400-450 range? I personally like the EVGA ACX cooler but I think it's always good to have multiple opinions.

you definitely dont need to. I just suggest it. Probably drop your temps between 2-5C with new paste. The GTX670 by Asus should keep temps under 68C in a custom fan profile.

Its an incredible cooling, ascetically speaking and also in performance. I wouldn't look anywhere else. It may be more expensive but its well worth it.

I've been an MSI fan (no pun intended) for the last 2 years. I've had 2 560 ti's with the Twin Frozr II cooler, upgraded those to a 680 with a Twin Frozr III (under water now though), and I gotta say I really really loved these coolers. The performance was so good, while remaining fairly silent - people talk about blowing hot air back into the case but I didn't have any problems in my CM 690 II (680 @ 55-60 degrees factory overclock), not even in my 700D (65-68 degrees factory overclock) which is not exactly a dream to air-cool in. Only in SLI is it better to get the single fan'd blowers that blow it straight out of the case if you ask me. When you SLI 2 of the 'lets blow hot air everywhere' cards, things tend to get a little hotter, yes. I never noticed any (big) increase in CPU temps either, not even with the two 560 ti's in SLI.

When you run a single GPU I'd say, go for the Asus, MSI , EVGA ACX or maybe even better - the Inno3d Herculez iChill one. MSI cards are usually $30-40 cheaper than the other cards, but with similar or better cooling! Asus and Inno3D have the best coolers right now but they are a little more expensive.
