Just order Two 80mm Antec Tri-Cools, Got the multi-colour ones

Also just measured the heatsink, and it;s like 80mm * 178mm, so they are going to fit beautifully.

Letting people know for a general fact, on some brands of videos card this will void your warranty, you got EVGA so it wont for EVGA.

I got the same result just running my fan at 100%, I can't hear it with my headset but other people might.

****, and to think I was going to buy a 60 dollar to do the job of a free 80mm. To me this is worth giving you epic rep, +rep my good man.

Edit: do you think 120's would be just as effective?

Yes, but I think you would only be able to fit one.

I chose 80mm's because they sit perfectly on the heatsink.

I thought my old Titan Pci cooler would work, but no. running furmark it got to 80c in half the time it took with stock cooling shroud. But I have pictures, it looks good at least lol

Add two Antec Tri-Cool fans, It keeps it a few degrees cooler, but the speed at which it can drop it's temperature has gone down, It goes from load to idel temp in a few seconds.

It didn't work well for you? I think your fans are too small.
