Hello all! I've been trying to retrofit another cooler onto my ELSA 1050 Ti SP since it's a bit too long for my case, but I've been running into some slight issues. Namely, is that I've found this as a potential solution, however, it does require me to relocate one capacitor and it only has a 2 pin fan that is quite loud.


Does anyone else have recommendations for some really strong GPU coolers that I could use with my 1050 ti? Only requirements are that it be single slot, not be too long, cool very well, and be reasonably quiet.

Are you strictly limited to a single slot cooler or do you have a little more room heigth-wise ?

Are you proficient in PCB soldering?

Yes, it isn't that challenging as well. It's simply a singular through hole capacitor. The hardest part is honestly finding the spec of the capacitor. I think this is identical to it, but maybe you can find something better. There's a picture of the PCB below. My GPU uses differently labeled ones, but the PCBs look identical. The cap that's causing the issues is C112 (next to memory M1).

I have more room above the bracket, but it has to be as slim as 1 slot in profile. I have a bit of length off the PCB, maybe an inch or two.
