Gtx 470 cooling!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey overclockers, I dont know too much about cooling for GPU's but I know that my gtx 470 is limited on how much it can OC bcuz of the heat issue. I was wondering how much of a performance upgrade I could see if I used this zalaman cooler on my 470. Is the amount of gpu I am gonna get out of adding the fan worth it?

What do u use? the icy vision? or the zalaman? and do u think the 60$ was worth 250mhz.
Also does anyone have opinions on which one is better? I know zalaman is a good company but i dont know much about the icy vision cooler.

I dont use anything. The gigabyte stock cooler which came with the card. Just use MSI Afterburner and increase the fan speed..

OP you need to calm down, take a deep breath and open MSI Afterburner. Set your fan profile correctly. Unless your VID is 1.13 or something outrageous you will be able to do 800 core on the stock cooler
