6870 stock backplate and Accelero S1 Rev. 2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone here knows if I can use the stock backplate on my XFX 6870 in conjunction with an AC Accelero S1 Rev 2. I know the Accelero calls for a different heatsink set but I can have the Accelero here in 2 days and the VR001 set would take 3 weeks from AC.

Thanks,

Neill

Yes, you can as long as the Accelero has place for the backplate to screw on or it comes with thumb nuts for the screw to hold the backplate with the PCB.

 

 

Edit:

 

Please define what do you mean by backplate. It doesn't sound like what we commonly understand it here.

Ok maybe my post isn't worded properly. What I'm referring to is the stock VRM and RAM heatsink that came on the card originally. I know that you can remove the plastic on the original cooler and the GPU cooler is floating separately. What im looking to do is use the Accelero to cool the GPU and the original ram and vrm heatsink instead of waiting for the VR001 heatsink kit to come in.

If the GPU has an attached VRM heatsink separate from the stock cooler, then yes. imo.

Yeah from my research the back plate is a full VRM and RAM sink that covers the entire board just not the GPU. I remember seeing an example of it in a youtube video demonstrating how to install a zalman 3000 heatsink. That guy ended up cutting the backplate up and only used the VRM part of it though.
