Re: [Cooling] need a new hsf for asus 4870

You could do a LOGISYS Computer VC4600 Hydro VGA Cooler for $61 or a ARCTIC COOLING ACCEL-S1-PLUS Accelero S1 PLUS VGA Cooler ($49) plus the ARCTIC COOLING ACCEL-S-TM Turbo Module Add-On Module ($15)--note that the addon fans are required on a 4870, they sell the cooler by itself for lower-end cards that can get by on passive cooling. Both are compatible with the Radeon 4870 reference model.

It's also possible that depending on the manufacturer, they sell the OEM fan as a replacement for much cheaper (or they sell it on Newegg/Microcenter/FrozenCPU/Amazon). Do you know what the fan's specs are?

unfortunately I do not know the specs on it. the exact model of the card I believe is the ASUS EAH4870/HTDI/512. doing this from memory though. I really don't care how big a fan it has on it, it is pretty much the only expansion card in the computer, and the case gives it tons of breathing room.

I have also considered this : Arctic Cooling Accelero L2 PLUS

I'm also considering the Logisys you mentioned as well.

thank you for your input!

I don't know if the single fan solution for the 4870 would be sufficient, even though they claim it. I would go with the S1+ and the turbo module (twin fans). I used to have a 4870, and remember it being warm.

In the end, totally up to you though.
