Hey guys, my fan is done on my 4890. a fin broke off thanks to my stupidity. What is the cheapest aftermarket cooler for this card. I am more concerned about price than cooling. Just something as good as stock. thanks

This is really good.
But, it is a bit pricey.
You should really give a price point. It would be easier to help out because "cheap" could mean a whole different thing between people.

Its hard to beat the Stock cooling at 50% fan speed. I would look for a used stock cooler if you want cheap. Otherwise, the Thermalright Trad2 with the VRM cooler would be a good combo, that will cost you about $90 though. Pick up a scythe mustachi or AC Twin turbo, and use the stock plate, that will run you about $50.

That's where the problem comes in. I got a XFX POS 4890. It isn't the ref cooler and it doesn't have the holes to mount the ref cooler.
