If anyone is curious about how I mounted my H80 on the case/GPU then please feel free to ask and I will try to give you as much detail as possible smile.gif

Keep up the great work guys biggrin.gif

How were you able to mount a radiator on top of another? I'm curious because my case is also not spacious and I'm planning to buy another AIO cooler for my 2nd GPU.

The front rad is mounted firmly to the case using the parts in the kit, I then passed a cable tie per corner through the slats in both rads (not too difficult) and used the end of another cable tie in a to clamp one rad to the other trimming away the excess. The key to this is ensuring the cables ties are tight so the rad cannot move about, but it not overly tight because you don't want to damage the slats! The position I chose to pass the ties through and the type of fans (SP120) means that the ties do not interfere with the fans.

If I'm honest I know this is not the best way of attaching them but it works for now. In the long run I will most likely manufacture a clamp to go around the outside of the rads and will be secured by the fans bolting to the outside. thumb.gif

Thanks. Can you show me some pics of the setup?

My 1st Gigabyte GTX 670 uses the Accelero Hybrid Cooler and it is GREAT! I'm trying to look for another Accelero Hybrid Cooler now but it seems that they are out of stock everywhere. Is the NZXT G10 the only choice I have left for this?

Anybody have thoughts on this?

if you already have an AIO lying around gathering dust smile.gif, then converting the AIO is the cheaper option
If you need to buy an AIO and the extra brackets & such, just to convert it; then the Accelero might be easier/cheaper/neater option... it IS build for a GPU, while a DIY conversion has several variables & possibly Murphy inducing attributes/drawbacks.

My thoughts exactly. But where do I buy another Accelero Hybrid when all of them are out of stock? The one in eBay is expensive.

I got word from AC that they'll be releasing the Hybrid II and Xtreme IV soon.

I probably could but the problem with using U-channel rubber is that it'll weigh down the shroud. I don't actually have any of the original screws so as a result I had to tape the shroud back on using painter's tape. I'm sure the U-channel would clean up my terribly done cuts though.

So my last post I tried hooking up my fan on the radiator to the GPU mini-4 pin connector to see if this works...it gets power but full control over the fan doesn't seem to do anything. I even tried a different fan on it and it just spins at whatever RPM it wants and no matter what fan % I change it to, it has no real affect on it.

Now what I did do was I ended up changing my fan setup and went to the Corsair SP120 fans for my case fans, high performance ones on the CPU radiator and the GPU radiator. CPU uses a H100i and the GPU is using an H55. I basically moved the H55 from the rear of the case to the front of the case by replacing my 2 old 140mm fans with 3x 120mm SP120 fans:







It is a louder setup in comparison to my old thermaltake fans but I'm slowly getting used to it.

But now the results...

I did stress test with Heaven again, using the same overclock settings...I dropped from 42C to 37C!





NOTE: I am running V-Sync which may affect the results. I've been running V-Sync on all my tests that I've posted. I also ordered the NZXT G10 so it should be coming sometime this month (hopefully). I'll post pics when I have it.


Just for note, while doing all this, decided to put some cold cathode lights in the case too. One for each side of the case, not too bright and gives it a nice glow.
