Hi i recently got a HIS Excalibur 9550 for one of my older pcs and i was wondering what cooling system would be best for the card ? I want to over clock it to get it bit better. The thing is this card has just aa heatsink and gets verry hot so im not going to overclock till i get new heatsink + fan system. Is there anyway to not have to remove the existing heatsink but add aditional cooling ? The reason i ask is because i dont really have experiance in this and i dont want to break the card taking the heatsink off.

Any suggestions
Thanks

Is seems that link is down. do i need to take teh existing heatsink off ?
will the Coolermaster CoolViva VGA Cooler (GX-000-CM) fit ? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Others.html
and how cold would the Akasa System Exhaust Blower keep the chipset if i put it in ?

Thanks

I have a Sapphire R9550 256mb, its a great overclocker. It got to 400 core and 230 mem with stock cooling, so whatever fan you get it would be great. I suggest looking at Vantec Iceberq
