Video of the Arctic Cooling Accelero Extreme III installation on a GTX 780





Edit :
Just did a real world temperature test with Unigine Valley maxed in surround 5760x1080.

Nice! I think I'd personally rather go with putting a CLC via mod on a gpu than an aftermarket cooler though, and it would be easier to do...

For these don't you like have to mix some epoxy or something like that?

no mixing is required, they provide everything. I'm vERY pleased with it. The cooler is really silent and the install is really easy IMO,

Hi,

How can you control the speed ?
post #5 of 60
well finally a cooler with back plate. with out back plates coolers like those are card killers. unfortunately i think that is probably to big fora haf 912.

EDIT: i wonder if i could use the back plate and some of the mounting hardware from this cooler with an accelero TT. I'm looking at the Accelero TT for my GTX480 in my Haf 912.

I just dont understand why people are still going for aftermarket coolers in this day and age? The ref 780 cooler really isnt good enough? Its soo quiet compared to the blowers of old...

Via the stock GPU fan connector. I went another route wink.gif model the cabling and plugged it to my Lamptron FC5. I also have a thermal probe on the VRMs. @~1650rpm i cant ear it and temp are REALLY better.

Accelero TT and this one are pretty similar. Only the heatsink/fans really are diff.

As for the noise, i'm running a testbed so i dont have any case to reduce the card noise. The stock GTX780 cooler is obviously really good and the noise was also OK. The blower is making a good wind noise passed 45-50% and become louder and louder but it's not an anoying sound. ( read cheap fan bearing sound ).

Stock, while running unigine valley at 1076mhz on stock cooler i reached ~70°c and fan was at ~65% wich is really noticable, even more on my testbed.
Now, with the Xtrem3, at 1176mhz and still running unigine valley the temp max out at 55°c with 1650rpm ( max out at ~2100 on my lamptron ) and VRM's max out at similar temp. At 1650rpm the Xtrem3 is'nt louder than my 3 other fans. 2 140mm phantek fan at 1000rpm and 1 split stream 120mm at 1100rpm.

I'm picky with fans and sound from computers... Now i really, REALLY ! like the 780 smile.gif
