Twin Turbo Pro on XFX HD4890?
 
Hey guys,

Right the stock cooler on my XFX HD4890 has been making a clicking noise for some time now,I think one of the bearings in the fan has gone,I could probably return it to XFX but its alot of hastle and i didnt like how noisy the cooler is anyway + it runs 60c idle so all the more for a better cooler :)

I was thinking about getting this aftermarket cooler for it?

However i heard you have to watch out with getting aftermarket coolers for the 4890 because of "Non reference" desighns?

Would i run into any trouble installing that Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO?

Thanks all for any replies,geratly appreciated :)

to you have the reference design card? or not ? (the one with the full shroud cover, with the fan at the very end of the card is reference) It may or may not fit on the non-reference card.

Hi thanks for replying :)

Thats what i was asking, if it was a non reference card or not as i was not sure, but yes my card has the fan right at the end of card.
This is the same cooler on my card,But mine has a black PCB instead of the red shown on that pic.
