I've been trying to find a good cooling solution for my hd 7990. I've seen heatsinks and prefab liquid systems that fit other cards, but nothing that will fit this one. I have never run liquid cooling before so I would prefer not to build a system myself. Is there a pre built option that I'm not finding?

It's a dual GPU card, did you expect it to not get hot? try to get good cooling for your case, that's all.

I absolutely expected it to get hot, this is not a surprise to me. I'm using a Cooler Master HAF X case, so it has fans and ventilation galore. I was just trying to see if I had other options. I'd like to learn how to WC eventually anyway, just didn't want to risk such an expensive build to learn on.

The only way is custom water cooling.

I have a 7990 (and a 7970) and have it running on custom loop I did.

Was my first time doing a full water cooling system too. It wasn't too bad.

Custom loop is your only option.

The temperature must have dropped like a rock when you did.

Im getting almost the same amount of fps with a single oced 290x than I did with three 7970s in most games, and feels way smoother.
