    Wish this cooler was available for the 5770.

    Does the 480 version fit the MSi 480's? I read somewhere that the MSi uses different components from the reference design and it might cause some fitting problems with aftermarket coolers.

    If it does fit, then I'll definitely be getting of these.

    Does fitting this cooler void the warranty?

    Depends on manufacturer and how much of a mess you make. Some cards have tamper stickers on the screws, some don't.

    Says this on all the graphics coolers sold at OcUK.

    So basically if you do it then it's your risk. I suppose they don't want people taking the cooling solutions off making a total botch job and not cooling parts that need to be cooled and then having to repair/replace.

    Still I changed my cooler and know that if I needed to put the stock back on then it would be fine as I kept all screws, heat pads. The only thing that would be different would be that I wont be able to replace the crappy TIM that they put on the GPU.
