Need new cooler for HD 4650

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a semi-cheap yet decent heatsink/fan for Sapphire's Low Profile HD 4650?

This is the one:

sapphire-radeon-hd-4650-low-profile-and_7488_1.jpg

I've got it in an HTPC, and it's running in the mid/high-50C range after only 10 mins (IDLE!), and in a rather cool room. Also, I heard a rather loud chirping sound coming from the HTPC, and after thinking it was the rear 80mm fan, I came to find that it was the HD 4650's fan. So not only is it running hot, but the fan is noisy and unbearable for me.

So, I need a replacement heatsink/fan on it, better than the stock one, but I don't need a ~$30 cooler, would be better to just get a new card for that price. Help on this would be appreciated.

Oh, and I have replaced the TIM twice, did MX-4 and Arctic Silver Matrix, results were only ~1C different at best.

Well you are saying you don't need a $30 cooler for this card, and if it's worthwhile getting a new video card. TBH, since it's just for HTPC, spend the money on getting a silent cooler, such as the Accelero or the S1 or L2.

No need to spend roughly twice as much for a new video card, unless you really are trying to keep a slim profile.

Will they work on an HD 4650 though? I'm not too fond of spending $30 on a cooler for such a low power card. I was thinking about something like this?

Should cool a few degrees better than the stock cooling, I just need something that doesn't run idle at 60C during the summer, like the current stock cooling. Just removed the shroud on the HD 460 too, lowered temps 3C, but still too hot, and I can't bare the noise.

maybe some ghetto modding and replace the fan with a regular case fan.

I had the same problem as you with my 4650 and ended up ordering a cheap cooler from hong kong on ebay. It will take a while for it to arrive, but it does help alot, it is a bit tricky to put on if you need help I will guide you through it, http://cgi.ebay.com/VGA-Video-Card-Wing-Cooler-Cooling-Fan-Fr-PC-ATI-NVIDIA-/300509372019?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item45f7c11e73

That looks like a cheaply made Zalman VF700. Do you think a Zalman VF700 would work? If so, I can get one extremely cheap for $15 shipped. If the mounting holes are about the same as a VF700, then yeah, could possibly use some advice on mounting it though I could probably figure it out.

Yes it is exactly like a VF700, just cheaper, you will have to push the fins in a bit to clear the pci slot.
