Hi since my orginal dc ii cooling fans had a short circuit they stoped working so i had fitted a case fan to my gpu but the temp is almost 30c on full load higher so i need to do something.

So now there are 2 options that i can do.
1. Buy fans from USA/CHINA only avaible place
2. Buy a better/similar cooler for the same price as the fans + delivery

I would like to go with the second option since its easier i guess? Okay so could some one give me couple ( or one if you only know one but good one )  links to good coolers that will fit on my card ( ASUS HD 7870 V2 )  i was thinking of arctic cooling accelero xtreme iii
but im not sure it will fit. The price has to be between 30-45 pounds 
Or if its possible find the orginal cooler/fans for asus dc ii in europe, but its impossible i have search with advance search terms and still only found USA or China :/

Hi, replacing the original cooler with a after market cooler may pose incompatibility issues as the graphics card uses a non-reference PCB and the Arctic Cooler for example is designed to work with the AMD reference PCB. Your best bet is to purchase the original cooler or you can try to watercool it.

Hmmm, hopefully the Gelid cooler will align with the main gpu socket but the memory needs to be cooled too.

I cannot exactly make an gurantee that the Gelid cooler will fit fully.

"The compatibility list is based on AMD & Nvidia's reference board layout ONLY. "

I seem to have trouble finding the measurements layout for the non-reference PCB of the Asus unfortunately :/

You can either email ASUS about possibly sending replacement fans or take the risk and try the Gelid cooler.

There is nothing on the ICY Vision that would require a reference board. It is rare for manufacturers to screw with the mounting hole alignment on the card itself. And there is no form fitting in the rest of the heatsink - hence the "universal" design. That board also ships with all the necessary heatsinks to cover the RAM and VRM's. Be sure to follow the directions when installing it, and take your time with it.

Be sure to follow the directions when installing it, and take your time with it.

Some of the VRM's may not fit properly with the included heatsinks or thermal pads hence the incompatibility issue but then again, this can be easily fixed by purchasing more heatsinks and cutting it to size.
