Questions specific to Gigabyte 5870 (GV-R587UD-1GD)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I've got a Gigabyte 5870 (GV-R587UD-1GD) and I'm wanting to replace the cooling solution that came with it. I understand that this is considered a "non-reference" design which makes me wonder what options, if any, I have for aftermarket cooling? Their special inclined fan solution is just too loud for me.


My second question is that this card touts a cooling advantage over the reference coolers. My card idles at 47C and gets to a toasty 90-92C in Furmark (with auto-fan control enabled). I'm not sure if it's supposed to get that hot but just thought I'd get your opinions anyway. I've included a GPU-Z and Everest sensor screen caps.

I think there are problems with the BIOS this card shipped with. Gigabyte released an F6 BIOS that apparently fixes a lot of the issues people were having.
