looking for aftermarket cooling solution for GTX 480

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for an after-market option about how I can cool a GTX 480 not using the stock cooler.

I'm most interested in an air stock cooler from a newer car, after-market cooler for a newer card, or a CPU heat-stink that could be slightly modified to fit.

The 480 after-market air heat-sinks seem to be about 50$ per, and wouldn't be the best idea.. nor would an aio

The Gelid Solutions Icy Vision is in my opinion the best aftermarket air cooler. I've used it with the EVGA GTX 480 and the temps dropped by 16C.

I put a lot of stress on the card for the 4 years that I had it and it worked great until I sold it on Ebay. I miss the card mostly for the looks with the Icy Vision.
