I need a replacement cooler for my Visiontek 4870
I don't need extreme cooling. Better than my stock cooler would be nice but I don't need to go crazy.

Here are my requirements:
-Quiet
-PLASTIC ENCLOSED WITH FAN AT THE BACK This part is most important. I have a Xonar card that blocks of the first fan on my stock cooler right now, which is my main reason for wanting an alternative.
-2 slots. It can't take up more space than a typical 2 slot cooler

any ideas?

I was looking at this cooler from Akasa:


But it's a pain in the ass to get in north america

Most people have stuck with the stock cooling Spyhop. There are very few aftermarket ones, and like 22point8 listed, aren't encased. The VF900 isn't even worth mentioning, it can't keep up with the 4870 heat output.

Most people I've seen that go aftermarket with the 4870 do so with watercooling.

It does? What's your fan speed at? Mine at 75% is much quieter than my old X850XT at 100%.
