Alternate Cooling for 1900xt

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about a new cooling solution for my 1900xt located in my CP. The card is nice but it seems to run really really hot even with the slightest OC. I wanted to do a new cooling solution with as little trouble as possible not that I cant do it but time away from my Gaming is like time spent getting a root canal. I am open to water cooling, or new heatsink/fan ideas. If you have something like my setup even better. Currently I have the 1900xt running at 670/750 and its stable, I know i can go higher and dont like the fact that it heats my whole room. I would like to hook up my processor as well btw.

The vf-900 form zalman is the best air cooling(stores are now taking preorders) but Id water cool if you have the cash. you'll see a huge drop in temps going from air to water

Well if I do water should I try to do Custom or get a KIT? I am also looking to change out my Case as well to something better, any suggestions?

Get a custom w/c if you want quality and good temps. Whats your budget for both?

That system looks nice, and it looks fairly easy to assemble it looks like its only for the CPU though, would I have to buy extra for the Vid card or am I just blind?

Also whats a good case for this?
