I really can't comment on the 5870, but I can tell you that the coolers that I currently use on my 5830's WILL NOT cool a non-reference 6950 (if that helps)....

My main goal with trying these was to keep my 5830's mining after the shitty Sapphire fans died.....and for that, these things kick the Sapphire Cooler's asses.
Quieter, cooler.....the only problem ? BULKY. You can not run these in a case, as you will never get more than 2 cards on a motherboard....due to the size of the coolers.

Here's a K100 on my non-reference Gigabyte 5770: http://imgur.com/a/TWTts#0

wow, talk about overkill. I'm willing to bet maybe 2 heatpipes out of the 5 are actually contacting the die.

Yup, only 2-3 of them actually touch the die. But the others still disperse heat, and are quite warm. Is a tad bit overkill, but if I upgrade my GPU it won't be Wink
