Don't see why they wouldn't-the heatsink looks about the same size, the biggest advantage youd get from it would be it blowing the hot air out the back of the case instead of the inside, which is a pretty big advantage, I would say if the stock cooler isnt doing it for you, can't hurt to try it, worse comes to worse, just return them.

this is true....ya the main problem is that these things get super hot and the hot air going back into the case is making everything else hot...so just didnt know cuz on some of the compatiblity charts it didnt mention this card probably cuz its xfx but still was just wanting to be sure and ure right i can always return them

thanks.

well, that is a hot running card to begin with, and every XFX card ive ever used has had cooling problems, so its a legitimate concern, and off hand Id say it should work, and If I were you Id try it-like I said, if they don't just return them and your back to where you were, no harm done.
