Not worth it mate. The PCB is most likely custom. You could create a custom fan curve so that the card is a bit more aggressive in cooling itself. I used to have the single fan 7870 and 70c is about normal. The cooler is pretty poorly designed.

Try looking at the Raijintek cooler we have just used. I certainly wouldnt buy a whole watercooling kit for such a cheap card.

70C load for a GPU is good though.

if i put better fans in would that bring the temps down?

You are talking about case fans, right?
