6950 1gb cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an XFX 6950 1gb. I would like to purchase an aftermarket cooler for it because the current one is too loud for my liking.
I have no idea what will and what will not fit on this card and the googles is not being very helpful too.

The bare card should look something like this: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/at...1&d=1298100514

Current temperature is about 70c idle, 90+ load with the stock cooler, but it's the noise that I want to cut back on primarily.

What will fit on the card ?

Definitely different than my 6950 PCB but the AXP should still work since it fits such a huge range of cards..

Make sure to pick up the VR001 kit as well.

About the product..well..it's just the best. Dead silent at 100%, card won't load over 50-55C at max. Can't ask for much more.

BlahBlahBlah picked the best one. I put an accelero on my 5970 and not only did the sound drop from annoyingly loud to dead silent, but my average temps under load dropped 13c average and I was able to overclock considerably. Accelero makes some great aftermarket coolers, can't beat them if you're going to stick with air.
