ASUS 6870 aftermarket heatsinks???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased two ASUS 6870 video cards. I had a single ASUS 6870reference card , but wanted to upgrade to dual and have identical cards.

Problem I ran into: The backplate on the ASUS 6870 non-reference card is slightly thicker than the card I currently own. This is a big problem because I cannot fit both cards into my case now frown.gif

I am now stuck with two options:
1) Return them both
2)Purchase aftermarket heatsinks.

I would love to keep the cards, so I am looking for some good heatsinks.

Can anyone recommend any?
