didn't have any packaging unfortunately, just the tube and not much written on it. Thanks for that info, i'll report back in a week if the temps drop a bit more.

i can't set it any higher than 100% and i use a headset anyway.
I probably am complaining a bit too much about the Accelero Xtreme III,
It's great option for those that have a ref 290x and don't want to watercool.
It's near silent, lowers the temp by a good amount and is easy to install.
The downsides are the length (32cm from back to end of the heatpipes), the amount of space it takes up (3 slots). and it only includes 12 Vram heatsinks when you need 16
I don't want to turn anyone off buying this, it's great cooler even though it has some downsides.Edited by Sgt Bilko - 11/1/13 at 8:42pm
