It's just hit spring here and the temperature is in it's mid 20's C in my little computer room, according to Everest Ultimate Edition my GPU temperature at idle is 69C / GPU Diode 74C / GPU Memory 69C

So, I need to put some kind of cooling on it and I really need some help with what to get. I already am running Thermaltake Bigwater 745 on my CPU so watercooling is an option.

I have read the Thermalrite HR-03 Plus is good but would like some other options please.

My case is an Armor+ so I have plenty of room to move etc

Any help gratefully appreciated

Thanks for the reply, I'm not worried which one I get as long as it definitely works lol. If water then it would have to be compatible with my current setup

I guess in the end I am leaning towards air out of laziness, setting up water will be a job lol

That it will. Haha.
Butttttt.... The water systems do preform!
If you got one, you could do a 2 for 1 special, for lack of better words.
Use all of the hoses, radiator, fans, pump that are going to the gpu on the cpu.
You just need an extra water block. Which most systems come with the cpu, so you would need to gpu block.
And hey, water cooling systems are wicked looking, especially if you get uv dye for the water and uv lights!!

Either way could someone please recommend something that is compatible with my card (as there aren't many from what I can gather)

If there is only 5C between the difference of air or watercooling I'll got air, but if it is dramatic then I'll go water

If its any use i have a exhaust/blower that i have set up directly below my GPU. (it sits over an empty pci slot and vents hot air directly out the back of the case). Using it i noticed a good 9-10 degree drop in GPU temp, plus a few degrees extra from the overall system!

How about the Thermaltake DuOrb and the Thermaltake TMG SLI Dual Slot Fan?

I reckon going by the reviews that it should work

Thanks for all the advice, just ordered a Thermaltake DuOrb and the Thermaltake TMG SL1 Dual Slot Fan, not disputing anything said here, but summer here gets to 40C so I figured I'd better be safe than sorry
