hi everyone,

i was wondering if anyone knew what would be a good cooler for a sapphire radeon hd 6870 1gb.

i have already tried a gelid icy vision rev. 2 (which fits ref. 6870's) but on a sapphire it hits pieces of the card and wont screw unto the card.

flipping through the pages of the 6870 cooling in the cooling section, i couldnt see anyone talking about non reference cards, especially this one, so i was hoping to get guidance here.

Could you measure the mounting holes? Maybe Sapphire changed the mounting pattern.

ill take a picture and post it, however, i was wondering if i should even change the cooler.

i believe the cooler on the sapphire 6870 is exhaust right? while the gelid icy vision isn't exhaust, so that means that if i replace it with the gelid icy vision cooler, it'll heat up my other components even more.
