Exclamation Cooling replacement for gtx 460?


Hi!

I have one gtx 460 Cyclone 1 gb and its huge fan just stopped working. Somehow im able to keep an idle temp of 70C without any fan at all and in Sli. I would like to know what would be the best replacement for my gtx460's cooling system. I have looked at the Scythe Setsugen 2 (http://www.amazon.com/Scythe-Setsuge...9271270&sr=8-1) But i dont know how good is it.. and i'm also wondering if the Icy Vision ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A1S9W9A986D3KF ) would be good.

What you guys think?

I need a kind of urgent answer... As its dangerous to keep running without cooling on my cyclone >_<

Thanks so much!

You could just strap a 92mm or 120mm fan to the heatsink if you have room. That's the cheapest option, plus it would be a better fan giving you better cooling

havent got any pics yet, i havent opened my case yet.. i just know that it stopped because of the huge noise it made the other day and the afterburner showing no RPM for my Cyclone :P

I just found out thats a 9cm fan. But let me ask you, wouldnt it be more troublesome to install just a fan than to install a whole new heatsink and fan all together? i mean, i got no experience in either case :P so what would be easier?

yeah, good thinking. Probably would make more sense to be a wire to cause the huge noise but its hard for me to think that because its the top card, all sides covered by the heatsink, the bottom has the other video card, the only possible way would be in front. I'll have a look today.

lol its not a piece of cake for me to open my computer, so.. i assumed the worse. But it seems that it was the manufacturer's sticker from the other video card that was causing me problems. Now its normal.

thank you all though

Glad you got it fixed yourself. PC usage here is more of a hobby thing. You did it and now are more confident. Good job!
