So i got the radeon X1950XTX and as some of you know this card gets really hot. So I want to switch the stock air cooler to a beter air cooler. But howe many coolers support the x1950xtx? And it need to have a pretty good heatsink to dosent it? So I have looked at these two: http://www.microplex.no/product.aspx?pid=HR03&mcat=c45 http://www.microplex.no/product.aspx?pid=ZMVF900CU&mcat=c45
Will one of those two work beter then the stock cooler?
I use the Nvidia version of this http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ArcticCooling/AcceleroX2 And i couldnt recommend it enough, dropped mine by 15 degrees and whisper quiet.
go with this one u linked
I'd go with that Zalman, I've got one on a x1800xt and my card runs idle at 45c and load at 58-64c.
The cooler that comes stock is a modified arctic cooler, isn't it? It also exhausts air outside the case. What is the problem? I really don't think a second party cooler would do much better ...

Compared to the competition (ie Zalman), Arctic Cooling coolers are far inferior. Yes, they're better than the stock heatsinks, but that's hardly a high standard to judge them against. I once had an Artic Cooling NV5 on my 6800GT, it dropped my temps from 60C with the stock cooler to 50C. Fitted a Zalman VF700-cu and it dropped down to 30C. And the VF700-cu isn't even their flagship model.
Whats theyre flagship model?
I guess il go with the zalman. But you think the tempratur will drop? Since I dont swich my heatsink picas of the noise.
I think I covered that one already mate.
