    Anyone have any tips for a good aftermarket cooler? I got a GTX 770 and one of the fans is not working. I want to overclock it also. Any help?

    Maybe something like this? My husband installed this and it works real good. its quiet too. I tried looking on the net for reviews but this is one of the few good ones I saw :) Hope it helps!

    Research first before making recommendations. The Accelero Mono PLUS is only rated for 200W. The TDP of the GTX 770 is 230W. So the AMP is not a good choice for a cooler. The GTX 770 is also not on the compatibility list for it(probably for that very reason).

    I would go with the Accelero Xtreme IV for an air cooler. I have one on my 280X and I love it.

    The Accelero Xtreme III is another good option. The main difference between the III and IV is the III comes with VRAM and VRM heatsinks, and the IV comes with a back side heatsink instead.

    I bought the cooler yesterday. I installed it an hour ago. This thing is amazing!!! My temps went from low 80's to 68c with the Accelero Mono Plus. I did use my own thermal paste though so idk if it helped any. I have been playing GTA 5 for a few hours now and temps stay around 65c. Thank you!!

    Arctic makes the best coolers for GPUs at the moment. Zalman used to make em too but not anymore. Glad you were happy with the advice.

    I am surprised actually. I think I will buy more for other cards. The 200w TDP rating for the cooler seems to not matter with the 230w TDP of my GTX 770 :)

    The Thermalright Shaman is a beast, it can tame my R9 Fury X Strix overvolted, overclocked and unlocked.

    Just no GTX770 support.....

    "Supports GTX460 470 GTX 480/ HD5870/5850/4870/4850"

    You're lucky that it fits on your Fury...

    I forgot to mention that I made a custom bracket for it x)

    As long as the holes align with those of the GTX 770 it should be fine.
