I have a reference GTX 970 ( Products :: Gainward GeForce® GTX 970 ) and would really like to overclock. But the reference cooler could not handle the heat when OC'ed. I would a custom GPU cooler but could not find any in India. Digitians plz help me find the best cooling for my graphics card, within my budget which is Rs.4500.
P.S. I asked Deepcool about their availability and compatibility with GTX 970 (V6000), but no reply.
P.P.S. Importing from US overshoots my budget, only Arctic Accelero Mono Plus in my budget (from US). Are there any Indian retailers of Arctic?
Please Help.
Thank you.

Kraken G10 is only a shell with Fan for VRAM cooling , the liquid cooling itself will cost 4k+ and it does not have tiny heatsinks for Vram

So, what do you suggest, I do?
Found the Accelero Mono Plus on geb.ebay for 4400 bucks, you think it could hold my card when oc'ed?
Also there are Deepcools V6000 and V4000, you know they available in India?

Accelero mono is 5.2k on amazon which is the same price as newegg import, if you can get it for 4.4k its a better deal.

According to newegg and amazon reviews it does bring down the temperatures satisfactorily, barely any sound and officially supports 970

It is also quite thick taking 3 slots and is on the heavier side as a huge lump might bend the card a little, check if you have enough space

There is no official support as they are not selling it in India and international warranty has expensive courier charges which is 3/4 the price

The mini heatsinks applied with thermal glue might be permanent and even if the cooling is not upto desired level you are stuck with it

The choice is yours, will the OC performance be worth all the risk

That is scary man. Are there no brand that has official support in India?

No idea, I don't think India has a market for such products.

I couldn't even get a fan for my GPU from anywhere in India after the warranty was over. Its only on import from a third party seller and it costs more than the value of fan

GTX 970 is a 145-165w card and the Arctic Mono Plus is a 200w cooler, what do you think? Offcource the 145-165w tdp limit will breached while oc ing. Also, my card has a great asic quality of 75.6%
