I thought it was common knowledge you can't use Asus Smart Doctor with Sapphire cards.

Okay, so some pictures of the card with it's new Cooler:

Ready to go on:


Memory Heatsinks applied:


This comparison made me laugh, i think the Stock cooler feels like me standing next to a body-builder.


Here it is all set-up. If you're looking for a cooler which is 100% compatible with the 6870 and 6850 then the Accelero Twin Turbo is a great choice.

One of the problems with cooling the memory with aftermarket coolers is that the heatpipes tend to cover the bottom set of VRAM chips. The key is to have a heatsink such as the one in my second picture, front and centre.

And a screenshot of the temperature and stable OC

Thanks I have been wondering if the accelero works on the 6870. I'm even considering trying it passive since my ft02 has such good airflow. If it doesn't I can always put the fans on.

I wonder why isn't there a 6870 version of this 6850... which pretty much has the same idea of your cooler: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-348-_-Product

I just tried it with the fans off and the temperatures in Furmark at Stock Clocks were rising continuously until 85C, at which point i plugged the fan back in !

However, at 25% fan speed they are so quiet that my Hard Drive is actually louder, and they keep the load temp at a nice 60C.

But i would definitely recommend them, the heatsinks are really nice too, i've gotten 1220Mhz stable and i'm pretty sure the reason for instability after that is lack of voltage.

I believe that AIB's don't yet have permissions to release modified 6870 designs.
