Arctic Accelero Xtreme III on a GTX 560 Ti Hawk?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So... A friend of mine wants to change the cooler on his MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk. The card's cooler is probably the worst I've ever encountered so I totally understand him.
The Accelero Xtreme III seems like a really good cooler and I can get him a used one quite cheap but the question is if it actually fits?

The cooler is confirmed by Arctic to fit the GTX 560 Ti but since the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk has a slightly longer PCB and different components I'm not 100% sure if it fits?

Should fit. The only thing that changed are the VRM positions and minor things. THe mounting holes for coolers and aftermarket coolers are always going to be the same, given a certain brand.

Just make sure to pick up some VRM coolers if he plans on overclocking it, too. The Enzotech MOS ones are the best.
