Default sapphire hd 6970 aftermarket cooling?


it is summer and its getting hot! my hd 6970 temps are getting to be too much it will freeze in game sometimes even if the heat is not causing a crash, under load, its going 95+ degrees celcius under load

when i'm in game playing any game even the free one dragon nest or crysis 2 after 30 mins to a couple hours my computer would freeze, i cant crl+alt+dlt out of it and i am forced to do a hard reset. when it freezes the sound buzzes and the screen is frozen on whatever i am looking on. This only happens in game

i was wondering if anyone can recommend a way to cool my graphics card, i'd rather not touch water cooling unless it is something like an h50 where its an all in one type thing.

I've looked at the thermalright shaman but i dont think it would work for me, my sound card would be right below the shaman. anyone have suggestions?

I'm using two of these for my GTX 480's in SLI with the P8P67 Deluxe. The 6970 is listed as compatible.
