Gigabyte GTX570 OC V2 with Arctic Accelero Hybrid LCS Cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK.. so I've been doing a bit of searching trying to find this info and thusfar failed.

Basically I'm trying to find out two things.

1) Is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Overclocked V2 card a reference card, and how does one tell this? I've been able to find out how to check for ATI cards but not nVidia. A link to any kind of guide I've somehow missed would be apprecaited.

2) Has anyone tried a Arctic Cooling Accelero Hybrid LCS Cooler on one of these cards? Does it fit and how well does it work? I'm more aiming to cut down noise than anything else as that card gets LOUD when it's in use.

I currently use a Corsair Hydro Series H60 CPU Cooler to cut out my CPU fan noise and have been very happy with the results there, so I'm pretty much just looking for something similar with my 570. Long term I'm begining a project of building my own fully watercooled system but I have limited time to do so at the moment so am looking for something in the meantime.

First of all I can't tell if its reference or not. Generally I'd say yes because alot of 570's are reference. There's only a few that aren't references boards. 2nd the AC AH LCS is a ripoff. It's a waste of money and you'll be spending WAYYYYYY more money than a closed loop WC unit like the Antec 620 would have. You could get 2 antec 620's for the price of 1 of those AC units. Save your money.

Thanks for the response - out of interest, are there problems with the performance of the AC AH, or is it just extremely over priced?

I think I happen to have a spare H50 cooler lying around from an old build.. might look into to a mod with that smile.gif.
