ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S1 Rev.2 or Thermalright HR-03 GT for 8800GT

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
my 8800 hits 99-100C on these hot days so its time for an aftermarket cooler and my budget is 39.53 dollars maximum.

so i have a choice between these 2 coolers

ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S1 Rev.2 or Thermalright HR-03 GT the arctic cooling one is brand new and the Thermalright one is used (does it matter?) which one should i get?

also if you see a better cooler for cheaper post it

fair enough, why sink more money into it then, bound to fail again at somepoint, save up a little longer an get a new one
post #5 of 11
strap some 80MM fans to it, let it be.
I came from an dying 8800GTS, bought another coolerfor it in the last month of it's life, but hugely regret it.
You should really save that money for an GPU upgrade.

i already have 2 high power 92MM fans and it still hit 70C in crysis 1.

and i have the cash to blow and im buying an entire new rig in a month or 2 anyway so why not?

go with accelero + 1x120mm fan and you will be hitting temps like 56-58C

I had OC (cant remember how high bu something like 742 - can be?) + 2x120mm noctua fans running at 600RPM and I was getting 53C

I've been using the Accelero s1 for 3-4 years now. I sit at 34*C on idle 40-45 load highly recommend it

EDIT: don't forget to get heatsinks for ram and voltage regulators

Accelero S1 Rev.2....

I put one on my 8800GT, Along with 2 120 MM Fans, and the thing never saw above 35 Degrees...
Even with no fans on it, I don't think I saw above 50?
