Questions about 7870 cooling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Gigabyte 7870 ghz and the temps are pretty good. I might be able to get an Arctic Accelero Xtreme III at a discount via a friend and was wondering if the cooler could properly fit over my card? Is the Accelero Xtreme III's cooling efficiency that much better than the Windforce x3 or is it not worth bothering with? The price I might be able to get the Accelero for around is $50~ish.

My load temps with my 7870 at 1.263v 1225/1450 are around 68-71c core and 65-68c vrm1/2 with fans running at 100%.

Since the Gigabyte 7870 ISN'T a reference board, it will not work. Tried it already.
