GTX 260 Aftermarket cooler

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm brand new to the forum, Im enjoying it so far.

Was wondering if anyone knew of a good after market cooler for the gtx 260. I could buy a new card, but im interested in bring more life to this card/ experimenting with it.

Air would be best, but if anyone knows how I can water cool my gpu alone, please let me know smile.gif

Thanks in advance

If you have the 55nm revision then you should be able to OC to about 650mhz core 1410 shader on stock cooling no problem.

My 192core 65nm did 648 core and 1512 shader, at stock voltages, so I'm sure the 55nm versions will go higher:D

its the 55nm

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121257

216 core

Im sure it could reach some great potential, but it gets fricken hot in my storm scout/loud when i adjust the fan. + I have never taken a gpu apart and I thought this would be the chance to do it since I don't have a warrenty left. Price isnt an issue.

Anyone know if I can water the gpu alone?
