so im sure it come as no surprise that i am not happy with the heat from these gtx 470's
i have seen load temps of 80c. that being said i was thinking og aftermarket coolers but concerned about effectiveness and them not taking up too much room
has anyone dealt with artic cooling i was thinking of grabbing two of these Accelero Twin Turbo II http://www.arctic.ac...-ii.html?c=2182
they have them for $65 but amazon has them for $42
any thoghts

80 C is more than fine. Don't waste your money.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

What about replying the thermal paste do you think that might help a little bit cause 85 degree Celsius kind of scares the hell out of me and yes I know I 1 might say I should have kept my 680 but I want to the extra money to upgrade to the next gen cards I sometimes think I'm worse the knight rider

Reapplying thermal paste usually helps but it voids the warranty on most new cards but since the 470s are so old I'd say give it a go
I thought I heard you were also getting a third 470 soon ? Tri-sli will cook lol

I have a 470 just rotting in the closet, the factory thermal paste went to poo so I bought a Scythe Setsugen2 for it. It was a great cooler but you need thermal epoxy for the VRM heatsinks to stay on, the supplied adhesive was garbage. No need to worry about it anymore since I picked up a 670...

the funny part is that the 24 70's do better in most games then my 680 did the only reason why I sold my 680 was because the next gen cards are coming out soon and now I have 450 to put towards new card

Safe spec is 105c for 470's btw... http://www.geforce.c.../specifications

Obviously thats max safe by nvidia and you should strive to be less than that, but honestly the 400 series cards were literally designed to run hot. They'll be fine!

My gold plated butt-plug business is being sued by Apple. Apparently they have a patent for overpriced crap for a holes.

As others have stated 80c is fine for that card. I noticed that whenever I ran sli/crossfire that my top card was always much hotter than the bottom one so I at least made an effort to at times swap them around.

If the cards are ever ACTUALLY overheating, they will automatically throttle down to prevent damage. So if you're seeing perfect performance then they're fine (and I know that they are at only 80C)
