I have a 4850 x2. Great card. It gets hot. I sweat after playing games for an hour. Its that hot. New power supply helped a tiny bit cause the old barely met the specs. There are a few configs I can go with.

For those of you unfamiliar with the 4850 x2 please look here:

The setup will go as follows. One heat sink that wraps around the back of the card (Either the Thermalright V2 or the Thermalright HR-03 Rev. A)

OR

The other heatsink will sit on the GPU on the front of the card. (either the Thermalright V2 or the Zalman VF900-CU)

OR

I can use any combination of the above.

Which 2 should I choose?

The only benefit I see to the VF900 is that I won't have to buy a fan. They are all around the same price.


Basically pick me out the two best heatsinks to use & the best paste for GPUs.

ALSO PLEASE INCLUDE THE BEST FAN TO USE. The Thermalright HR-03 works with a 92mm fan and the V2 works with any 80mm fan of 15mm or 25mm width. The VF900 comes with its built in fan.

Also if you want to recommend a different heatsink then feel free. These are the ones I have seen used and were recommended on the Thermalright site to use with the 4870 x2. If you recommend a different, include a toms review or some evidence that it would be better.
