Hello everyone! I tried to clean my Gainward GTX 570 Golden Sample with compressed air but everything went wrong.

I used an air pressure pistol found in a gas station but the air pressure was so high that the fans got destroyed as you see in the image below.

I currently used a GTS 250 from Asus which really noisy and despite that can't offer the same performance as the GTX 570.

So my question is which the best aftermarket cooler for the GTX 570 that is also compatible with my vga? I wouldn't like to pay much, so every cooler under 70 € is welcome.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Ouch that is why you must be careful using compressed air. Lesson learned ;)

The Accelero would be a good replacement.

Ignore him. I'm not sure where your located to I can't give you any links/prices for the Accelero but it is a very good cooler. Quiet and will probably do a better job at cooling than the stock cooler.

Yes, i've read some reviews about the Accelero cooler but it also needs an extra kit which includes the brackets, ram heatsinks etc. Despite that, kit included, costs more than 70€. What do you think about this one? Zalman VF3000F

Hmmm... i found the Accelero on ebay for 66.90 € plus 9.90 € for shipping. Does it still require the xtra kit (bracket, ram heatsinks etc) like the Accelero Xtreme II or not?

Well looking at the original cooler it was handling the cooling on the RAM as well as the GPU. So it may be wise to use ramsinks. The Zalman also looks like a pretty good cooler as well.

Evercool is offering replacement style fans (NewEgg link below):

Computer Hardware, Fans & Heatsinks, VGA Cooling,...

Not sure what markets Evercool sells to???

It may be possible to retrofit your card to accept something like these (from the pic your cooler looks like it is a decent unit)

Have you tried contacting Gainward to see if you can buy the fans/shroud out right?

Gainwards cooler looks good but you will have to consider the cooling for vreg's and ram because it doesn't look like a reference board,
Try contacting gainward for replacement fans or if the cooling for the vreg's is like the reference one with that black heatspreader look for a cooler that's compatible with the one you have.
