    I want to get a new cooler for my Radeon 9800 series and I just wanna be 100% sure that the cooler I found will be compatable with my card, if you see what I mean. So the link to the cooler is below, could someone tell me if it's gonna work? I wouldn't wanna be wasting money lol...Thanks :)


    Oh and if you know, is that cooler any good? If u can reccomend a better one that I can get in England then sure ill get that instead..... :)

    That cooler should work, however it is going to be somewhat loud. Has the stock cooler failed?

    Unless you are trying to overclock your card, I always recommend using the stock cooler with an ati card.

    If you do not mind the noise, the cooler you selected will work fine. Make sure you clean off the old thermal paste before you apply your new paste and cooler.

    Whoa...6000rpm!!! That may be more than a little noisy! I had a Vantec CPU fan/sink that had a 'beautiful' copper heat sink and a 6000 rpm fan...lost 20% of my hearing in the first two weeks!!
