Just got lucky and was able to pick up a used 5970 for $420. Little did the guy selling it know that I probably will have made more from it mining in a month than I had to pay Wink. I already have two in a mining rig, but wanted to put one in my home computer.

Anyways, this card had the Arctic Cooler Accelero XTREME mounted to it. Have fans running at 75% and I can barely hear it. I had to move my rig with the two 5970s completely out of my house because of the noise. Now I can sit and work next to the computer no problem.

It also cools the GPU cores a lot better than the stock coolers, but not the VRMs. Because of this I can't clock it as much as the cards with stock coolers, but I gladly pay 30-40Mhash/s for the noise reduction.

In case anyone else struggeling with noise this might be a solution.

Be careful with the aftermarket version you put in the card yourself, there are many references to dead cards after installation due to over tightening the screws around the GPUs, which can bend the PCB to the point it breaks something. I'm too lazy to leave a url, but google for it and you'll find plenty an example... although on the other side it is AMAZING when it is carefully placed or bought already installed from factory.

Yes, I was aware of that, but it was already installed and worked fine so was not a probalem for me. You are right though, I should probably have mentioned that in my post.
