    My sapphire mac edition 7950 is a little noisier than id like under load. Has anyone installed an aftermarket cooler on one of these successfully?

    I was told the Gelid Icy Vision http://www.quietpc.com/gel-icy-vision-amd might fit but Im not sure if it'll worth doing or not?

    I think the problem with the third party cooler add-on is that the fans run a full speed unless they have a fan controller installed as well. With the stock kit i imagine that the fan speed is controlled by the card and therefore variable.

    Happy to be proved wrong, but i am sure my GTX680 spins up under load.
