Congratulations! After a month of skimping out on snacks and beer, you’ve finally saved up enough money for a reference AMD Radeon HD6970 graphics card. After the initial unboxing and tears or joy, you start up a fragfest in Battlefield 3 and gaze in awe at the massive performance increase over your old 8800GTX.

But as you continue playing, you realize that not all is jolly and well. The card with the stock fan settings run crazy hot, yet the sound of the the fan at 100% sounds like a jet engine in your room. So, you’ve decided enough is enough! How about an aftermarket heatsink? I mean, your CPU cooler has one so the GPU should too, right?

Yep, you’re right! Luckily, Gelid Solutions have noticed this problem, and decided to create a solution. After all, it’s in their name.
