Best air cooler for 5870?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm trying to find an air cooler for my in-transit XFX 5870 card. I read a bit into the Accelero Xtreme, but am really concerned about the ram heatsinks constantly falling off because of the poor adhesive tape.

Is the Accelero Xtreme really the best there is? Can you guys recommend another cooler?

Gelid Icy Vision

My friend bought two of these for his GTX480s and they worked great. They are comparable with the 5870 and priced near the Accelero Xtreme.

Hmmm... I don't think I'd compromise quality cooling for FIVE slots!

VF3000 is pretty good, I did go with different ram sinks.

Is your card a reference or non ref card?

It's an XFX card, so no... right?

How about the Accelero Xtreme Plus? A newer revision that is compatible with more cards and uses thermal paste instead of tape for the ram sinks.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Accelero Xtreme heatsinks. I would imagine that if that model improves upon the only thing you didn't like about its predecessor then it should work great for you.

Is the fan centered or on the end?

IDK about the Accelero, I'm sure it's good, just that I haven't seen any member reviews with a 5870.

Here is a review of the Accelero Xtreme with a 5870.

I would hope that the plus model would be better?
