As above, there are many others as good or better for same or less money. All of the below coolers are within a couple degrees of each other.

Cooler size comparison (Width x Depth x Height looking from front of case with motherboard laying flat)

Akasa Medusa .= . 8x 6mm pipes 144x129.5x163mm w/ 140mm & 120mm PWM fans 49.6mm*
K2 / Assassin . = . 8x 6mm pipes 140x128x158mm 146x154x160mm w/ 120mm & 140mm PWM fans43.2mm*
Dark Rock Pro 2 =. 7x 6mm pipes 133x124x166mm 133x149x166mm w/ 120mm & 135mm PWM fans
NH-D14 . . . . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 140x130x160mm 140x158x160mm w/ 120mm & 140mm fans44mm*
NH-U14S . . . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 150x52x165mm plus fans base offset 2mm 41mm*
PH-TC14PE. . = . . 5x 8mm pipes 140x159x171mm w/ 2x 140mm fans, PWM adaptor40-45mm*
Megahalem. . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 130x74x158.7mm plus fans 40mm*
HE01 . . . . .= . . . 6x 6mm pipes 140x119x160mm w/ 140x38mm PWM fan 42mm*
Archon SB-E. . = . 8x 6mm pipes 155x53.6x170.2mm plus fans 34.45mm*
Silver Arrow . = . . 4x 8mm pipes 147x123x163mm 151x149x168mm w/ 2x 140mm Fans 40.87mm*
SA SB-E . . . .= . . 8x 6mm pipes 155x105x164mm 170x130x170mm w/ 140mm & 150mm PWM fans 31.9/39/46mm**
SA SB-E Extreme . 8x 6mm pipes 155x105x164mm 155x130x165mm w/fans Smaller because of 140mm fan vs 150mm fan.


*cooler base to bottom fin. (add 8mm for motherboard to bottom fin.)
**fins are at 3 different levels

To answer your original question yes the v8 gts will be able to keep up with a 9370. Yes there are better air coolers as doyll pointed out but honestly if you are going to drop 100$ on an air cooler you might want to think about a water cooler. It makes the thermals of the entire setup much easier to deal with.

For $100 the only water cooling system is CLC. Most of which are not as good, are noisier, have more problems and are less dependable than air. When CLC has a problem (usually the pump) there no cooling until the cooler is changed. When air cooing has a problem (rare, but does happen) it's a fan getting noisy or failing. Worst case is we use a case fan temporarily until we get a replacement.

Component water cooling is great but the pump alone costs as much as a CLC. thumb.gif
