Default Recommend a 4890 cooler

Please can anyone recommend a QUIET 4890 cooler.

I got mine yesterday, and the stock fan is stupidly loud.

Im from the UK, so uk site needed, and cost can be up to about 30

I wont be overclocking the gpu, so quietness is the most important factor..

Try using the Catalyst Control Center or RivaTuner to manually adjust the fan settings. Usually the stock fans stay very quiet unless the temps get really high, so what I do is set the fan at a moderate continuous rate of like 35% which isn't very loud and maintains a good cooling throughout all usage.

Which 4890 did you get? I got the XFX Extreme addition with the lifetime warranty


If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!

Yea, I would suggest turning down the fan speed, for basic stuff.
