Need air cooler for 7900GT

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 7900GT that has been volt-modded. I could undo the volt mod to reinstall the stock heatsink, but since I don't have the stock heatsink I need aftermarket cooling anyway. I've already tried Arctic Coolings x1 accelero and found much to my chagrin that it would need to be extremely modified to work- I would need to cut off about half an inch of fan hood and aluminum fins without damaging the heat pipes they are attached to, and then bend the heat pipes up until they cleared. I'm looking for a full cooler, something that gets both gpu/ram. Thanks in advance.

ZALMAN VF900 - CU LED & ZALMAN FS-V7 are some good options.

I had been looking at the zalman. I initially was trying to get a cooler that I wouldn't need use ramsinks, but I haven't been able to google one that lists 7900GT in the compatibility. I didn't want to use the ramsinks, but it's looking like there are no options for the 7900GT. I did not want to use the ramsinks because so far I haven't been able to get the ramsinks to stay stuck on the board.

Which brings me to the solution that I did not want to hassle with - I'm going to get the vf9000 from PC club at inflated prices across town and on the way home I have to make a trip to ACE hardware for some plastic washers, bolts, and aluminum sheet so that I can make some crossbars that will hold the stupid ramsinks on.

Get an Artic Cooling Accelero S1 with the turbo fan module, according to various reviews that offers the best cooling and best noise ratio.
Here is the link for it

you should get an ND1. it has beaten the vf900 in some tests and it vents the heat out the back of the case so it doesnt make your other parts warm
