[Review] Arctic Cooling Accelero Hybrid - Page 4

post #31 of 133
Does the thermal glue (included with the Hybrid Cooler package) make the heatsinks stick permanent to the VRAM modules?

Also, is the fan included as quiet as the fans of the Xtreme III?

The thermal paste in the white tube is adhesive paste, so yes, it will 'glue' the HS to the ram.

Again, I cant comment on a comparison to the Xtreme III.

Ok.

I thought you were able to use the Xtreme III before already and have mentioned that the Hybrid Cooler is much much better?

Ive used the AX pro and plus previously and I do believe the Hybrid is much better, temp wise, than those coolers.

Ahh ok.

For the VRAM heatsinks though, what can I use instead of thermal glue? I wouldn't want to stick them permanently there.

You can use thermal pads. Not as good as adhesive but it will do the job.

The point of the execise is to make sure the HS dont move. Using normal paste wont hold them and they will slide / fall off.

The last but least prefered option is to have the VRAMs bareback.

You will want very good ventilation around your vrams in that scenerio. If you take this option, I wouldnt recommend OCing your VRAM

Well, how about thermal tape? But it's stil much better if the VRAM modules are included with the main cooler mechanism right? That is the case for my stock heatsink.

I will definitely be OCing the VRAM.

Yeah, tape / pad... that will work.

Im not sure what you mean by

Can I remove the tape in the future? I don't think the pads will work because that needs pressure for them to stay on, right?

I mean with my stock cooler, the VRAM are cooled by the main heatsink (the big one) with the use of thermal pads. That would still be better because that is active cooling instead of just using the small heatsinks included with the hybrid cooler, right?

Yeap, you can remove the tape / pad with alcohol and a little elbow grease.

If you can use the main heatsink, that would be good but Im not sure you can use this with the hybrid just because of the way the hybrid is configured.

As long as air is going over a heatsink, they will be cooled - either the main HS or the smaller hybrid ones.
