Aftermarket coolers for 5700 XT

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok, so I've been hitting a thermal limit (with occasional crashing) with my reference 5700 XT where my junction temps are getting around 110°c, and I'm looking for something better for the cooler. I definitely don't want to spend $150 for a waterblock and then spend even more to do a custom loop for just the GPU. (if I wanted to spend $550+ for a GPU I'd've gotten a cheap RTX 2080) System specs are in my profile if you're wondering.

 

Anyone have any recommendations for something that will actually work, and isn't a CPU cooler that won't fit in my MicroATX case between the GPU and the PSU? (about 4-5 slots width)


CPU: Ryzen 5 3600     Cooler: GAMMAXX 400     RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16gb 3600CL16 @3800CL16     Mobo: ASRock X570M Pro4

Graphics Card: ASRock Reference RX 5700 XT     Case: Antec P5     PSU: Rosewill Capstone 750M  Storage: Mushkin ECO2 512GB SSD, HP EX900 1TB NVMe

Hello,

 

You could look at

or

I think both can fit.

 

Although your case is kinda closed too :P

The problem with those is that the center piece of the main cooler prevents the RAM heatsinks from fully covering the RAM chips. So unfortunately, that isn't a good solution for my problem, as the GPU processor is not the part that is overheating.

Already did that... That's why I'm able to run the card at all. (it's always been on the hot side of the 5700 XT scale) And since it's not the core temps, but most likely the memory and other component temps that are the main issue, I don't think the AA coolers will help much.

 

I really just wish someone would make a single-heatpipe VRAM heatsink and a mounting bracket for the Arctic that allows for it to be cooled properly and completely. (and then sell it for like $15)
