I just installed the accelero extreme III and ran Heaven benchmark 3 times back to back with it maxed out on my 290 flashed to 290X at stock 290X clocks. I have it plugged in to a full 12V for max fan speed and I can not hear it over my case fans.

Max temps during the 3 runs
GPU temp 58c
VRM 1 temp 65c
VRM 2 temp 47c


Idle temps currently
GPU 36c
VRM 1 Temp 29c
VRM 2 Temp 34c


This thing is absolutely beastly AND it runs cool and quiet! HIGHLY recommend the accelero extreme III to anybody with one of these cards. I used 7 carrot diamond TIM on the core and the supplied thermal glue for the ram sinks and the supplied thermal pads for the VRM's. It does not come with enough ram sinks so I had to cut down 2 of the larger unused sinks to have enough for the ram. It does make the card longer so be aware of that. My gpu cure ends with 2000 which is an actual 290X core. Cards that end is 2020 are 290 cores from my understanding. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.
