So I just got this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835426026 for $54 shipped, because my Powercolor AMD 7950's stock reference cooling is absolute dogshit. To be honest, it failed (fan stopped turning) about 6 months back. I stuck a blower on the naked (GPU only, no ram sink coverage) heatsink, and it worked OK. My full-load temps with the blower SCREAMING was ~high 70s c (it would crash when it hit ~83c). I finally got fed up with it when the plane I was flying in DayZ crashed because my game crashed because my video card overheated. Again.

Anyways, I read a bunch of reviews, and ended up settling on this. Price + availability + apparent ease of install were all factors.

I just ran ~15 minutes (granted, not a "true" burn in) of Furmark's Burn-in test, and it stabilized at 48c. That's with 100% GPU usage, for 15 straight minutes. Ambient room temps are ~22-24c (72f).

Thats a drop off of ~30c. Amazing.

So yeah.. if you are running stock air, and don't want to mess with water... give this a look. There are two revisions, and they work with a TON of different cards.
