[Cooling] AMD HD6970 after market cooler

Would you say I'm lucky, or unlucky? I would go with the former, here's why.

I bought a 5870 2GB (6 mini-DP) for $170 on newegg 1 year ago, and back then, that was a good price. About 4 months ago, the fan's bearings took a poop, and Sapphire replaced it with a 6970 toxic card. There's my first batch of unluck/luck.

Now about 2 months ago, the bearings on that card also gave out. I didn't bother with the RMA, because they would just end up giving me another 6970 w/ stock cooler. So here I am, and I get to put on an Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme II Plus on my video card this coming week.

I guess the point of this thread is to ask the question at the top.
