Post Gpu Heatsink

Looking for the best after market heatsink for a HD 4870, couldn't find any on newegg.

My card right now with stock gets to 102c in game at 50% fan speed.


Any suggestions?

I'm running a Scythe Musashi on a 4850. Idle at 35, load at 47 degrees Celsius.

I just bought an antec 900 two, with all my stuff in there it was kind of a tight fit and I think
cords may be blocking the front intake fan in front of the card, I order a new fan for the side window
hoping that will help.

Side question should i have the new fan blow in to the case or push out.

Blows in.

900 goes a chop chop.

Is my Antec 900 thread.
The psu also sucks out so really you have 3 out and 2 in.

thanks for the help :P

I looked at a few reviews on the Xigmatek VD964 Battle-Axe HDT VGA Cooler
and decided to get it, but I can only find 2 sites that sell it. one sells it for 26$
and is out of stock and the other 46$, does anyone know why there are only 2
places to buy this heatsink?
