    Hello everyone I have a X800GT02 which I flashed to an X850XT PE, and it seems to have fried the stock heatsink fan. The stock cooler that came with my card looks exactly like the X850Pro cooler to give you an idea. So Right now I took the fin cover off and have an old 80mm fan barely keeping the temps under 60C. So I need a new cooler and know I should get the Artic cooler 5 rev 2, but nobody has it in stock, not even newegg, so could someone point out a good aftermarket cooler that will fit my card that wont break the bank? Thanks alot.

    So can that one mount even though it says its for the x800 only? My board is supposedly identical to a x850xt.

    Yes It looks like it does. But still I need to know soon weather the ati silencer 4 rev 2 will fit on mine since it only says ati x800, not x850 specifically. I know the zalman vf700 will fit but It uses external power. If nobody knows then I'm just going to get the zalman.:shadedshu

    Believe me guys ATI Silencer 4 will fit perfectly on X850 because the PCB mounting holes, memory chips, GPU everything is absolutely the same (position) on both. I have the very same combination AS 4 rev. 2 and X850XT PE. The difference between AS 4 and AS4 re.2 should be the thermal pads which was not included in the first revision. Hard to fit all the memory chips.
