Thread Starter 
I highly recommend this cooler, I'm currently running it on my overclocked fx8320 4.2ghz, runs an idle 29-30°c..max I seen it go under load I seen it go was 35°c.. If your looking for one I highly recommend this for you, but remember it's a big ass 280mm rad..video review coming up..

I will try, but in still breaking it in lol. Running with the powercolor 7870, make this a beast. Looking to water cool the card, but don't know where to start, or if I should invest in the arctic accellero.

Break it in a 5.0! Also, there is no reason to water cool that 7870 unless you are getting severely hot. OC until you hit a thermal barrier first, then decide if you want additional cooling capacity.
It's so little!

I mean that stock cooler on that myst edition is loud, but only if I crank it up. If it's on auto fan control it rarely speeds up the fan even if the card is at 70°

Good to hear. thumb.gif

I'm about to build 4 new rigs (2 3570K's and 2 3770K's) and I plan to put them in an NZXT Source 210 case and cool them with the NZXT Kracken x60.

I hadn't messed with them yet and for these 4 computers, I wanted to OC them a fair amount and didn't really want to go to the trouble/expense of 4 custom loops.

You should look at the newly released swiftech h220, about the same price but customizable. I'm good with my kraken though.
