[Mega-labs]Accelero Xtreme Plus II review - Page 5

post #41 of 64
Also got one yesterday, this baby has good build quality and gets the job done.

I'd like to see this go head to head with the Direct CU II coolers Asus uses.

I still see little to no difference... a few cosmetic changes and that seems to be it... :|

I still see the Zalman competitor doing better in the VRM cooling department.

If space is a major concern your best bet is to look into some of the water cooling solutions like coolit or full on loops.
I don't think it's that actually. By looking at them it seems they need to allow room for the memory heatsinks, adding an extra slot size. Your coolers like Asus, MSI, etc don't have memory heatsinks and therefore can save space.

Seriously thinking about buying one of these for my GTX480. The fact it is universal and should be compatible with new cards coming out makes it very tempting.

I doubt that, I've got both the VF3000 on my Zotac 480 AMP and an AXP that I'm about to put on it. Even though Zalman's VRM/RAM heatplate looks solid, the AXP's separate heatsinks are taller.

They really need to offer cheap replacement fan modules. One of my fans died and now it'll cost $25 just to ship a fan from hong kong.

I have the AXP 1 on my 5870 with a massive OC 1050/1300 and it runs 100% stable and my idle is 32degrees and load in furmark test goes to 48 degrees.

I am upgrading to a MSI GTX 580 Lightning soon but I want to use my Accelero Xtreme on the card. I'm not sure if it will fit because I heard the Lightning has a completely custom board. Fortunately for me I am from South Africa so my Xtreme Plus shipped with all the various heatsinks VR00X so I have the VR004 for the 580. Are the heatsinks good enough for the VRMs? because my 5870's VRMS get pretty toasty in furmark.

It seems the only difference between the AXP and AXPII is that it comes with all the heatsinks, which is funny cuz that means I had an AXPII since mid last year
