Need to pick out a new 5770 cooler!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I picked up 2 XFX 5770's and they run great, much better than my GTX 460.
Just sad that the FPS dips a lot in games that allow dedicated Physx. (BC2 goes down to 5 fps when a building gets hit with destruction 2.0)


I haven't started overclocking the cards yet. The bottom card is doing great, hasn't broken 55c. The top card however, just hit 85c. I usually like to keep my hardware at 70c tops, so I'm looking to buy a new cooler for it. I will be purchasing off of Newegg, but I don't see much for compatibility.

Motherboard is MSI
890GTX-G65.
PSU is Rocketfish Gaming 500 Watt.
Case is NZXT Phantom; it has great airflow.


The cooler cannot take up more than 2 slots since my board has the pci-e 1 slot away from each other.
Currently looking at Zalman and Xigmatek coolers.

Thanks for reading,

- Matt

Bad Company 2 doesn't support PhysX AFAIK.
I'm running a single 5770 and only a dual core CPU and I don't see any drops like you're describing in BC2.
You may be having other problems with your setup.

you won't find much in the way of after market coolers for the 5770 due to the mounting holes.
