Is it a single fan XFX card like this?

I had a 6870 from XFX with a similar cooler and the thing was complete garbage.
It was very loud and didn't do a very good job keeping the card cool.
Even still, it didn't get as hot while playing games as what you are seeing, TC.


I replaced the stock cooler with this and it made a dramatic difference in noise and temps.

Outing myself as a dummy here but....video cards have thermal paste too?


Yes, under the heatsink and the fan.


Ahh thanks. This is the first time I've heard of it. Good to know.
