    Does anybody have a link for alternative airlcooling for the Ati HD 3870X2. The reason why i want alternative cooling is that the cooling is making a weird noise like it s stuck when i get s over 25% fan speed so any options for me besides sending it back to the manufactuer???:respect:

    Tbh its a very good air cooler i cant see any after market coolers doing a better job without lots of noise.
    The only alternative is water cooling..

    only water blocks and it might stay that way. reseating probably won't help improve the noise so I don't think there is much you can do except find another person with a 3870 x2 and see if this fan issue is normal if not rma.

    Arctic Cooling should be releasing one sometime in the next couple of months I believe. It was originally for the 2900 but I read they'd be releasing one for the 3870X2 at somepoint...

    Ghetto mod makes me cry :( lol they've butchered it! Bye bye warranty. I'm most probably gonna go water in the next month or two, I'll find £80 for an X2 water block difficult to swallow though. :(

    That X2 isn't your is it Nitro?
