    Hello TPU,

    I want to get an aftermarket cooler for my XFX HD5850. Why, you'd say? Well simply because the stock cooler is interfering with several SATA ports on my motherboard :D

    Now, I've seen people mounting an Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo, but they had to mod the cooler slightly in order to fit.

    I've also seen that the Arctic Cooling L2 Pro fits on the 5850, but I'd love to know whether there is a cooler with a bit more heatsink (like the Twin Turbo or Accelero S1) that actually fits on this card without any modding.

    I've got a Zalman VF1000 currently on my 4850, which I don't use, so that would be my first choice, but if anyone knows a good silent cooler which fits the 5850 without modding, please tell me!
