I guess many here uses a third party cooler for their CPU, at least it seems so. However who here goes through the trouble of replacing the GPU cooler? Or do you just buy one with a 3rd party cooler already? Personally I have replaced the stock cooler on the CPU, however I have not replaced my GPU. It is a third party one, MSI Twin Frozr III. horgen123
Only when the stock cooler quits working like what happened with my old GF4 Ti-4200 (back in 2005).

I don't think many options are available when compared with the huge variety of CPU coolers available.
Back in the day, there used to be quite a wide variety but with the rise in power consumption and the focus on cool and quiet cards there isn't much of a market unless you are going with a custom H20 loop.

I've thought about it, but for me when I only buy midrange GPU's spending $70-100 on a 3rd party heatsink + fans doesn't sound too appealing when that money could be going to a new card.General_XYou're right about that. But if you first have a LCloop, doing it isn't so expensive.
