Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming Compatibility w/ Accelero Xtreme III/IV

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hello,


I am unable to retrieve any answers online to determine whether this specific card is compatible with the Xtreme III or IV. I currently have a Gigabyte GTX670 with Xtreme III, and I'm wondering if I can just transfer the cooler over to my GTX 970.

Going through Arctic Coolings website indicates that it supports the new Maxwell videocards, but they only state the 'reference design' cards will fit.

P.S: I have sent an e-mail to AC directly for support on my videocard. Arctic Cooling probably doesn't know their own product's if it's taking more than 2 days for them to respond back to me.

Update: Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming compatible with Xtreme IV cooler. Refer to post #15:

Must be a crazy coincidence that I wondered of searching again about this topic and saw you replying to my thread.

I've emailed them and a person named Leo responded back saying that the card is physically compatible, along with him stating that our Gigabyte 970 does not have a 3-pin socket. Of course, he was probably looking at the LED 2-pin socket as I see the 3-pin fan socket near the bottom right of the videocard.

BECAUSE of that misinformation he provided to me, I decided to not proceed with ordering the cooler. I also believe he did not understand what I was trying to tell him.

If you ever find an answer, please let me know :3.

Edit: I've just emailed them again, hoping I can get a solid answer this time.
Edit 2: Found a customer on Amazon installing the card with the cooler, but asked to confirm if it's the G1 Gaming.

The cooler should fit on the card. The mounting should be the same but I can't specifically speak for any other part of the card.

Second confirmation from another person from Arctic Cooling:

Dear Ray,

Thank you for your enquiry.

I have checked with our engineers that Accelero Xtreme IV is compatible with your Gigabyte 970 G1 Gaming.

Please be reminded that the overall length will exceed the spec limit of a full length card after install AX4 cooler, please check the height restriction drawing and make sure there is enough space available on the PC case.

Should you have further enquiries please feel free to contact us again.

Have a nice day.

Best regards
Justin Ho


Looks like I'll be going to buy this cooler, hoho excited! Also, the cooler will be sticking out as the actual GPU on the PCB is shifted more to the right.

Update: The cooler does NOT fit properly onto the videocard. There are many variances that are not similar prior to the other 970s.

Cooler has many problems with the Gigabyte 970 G1 Gaming after attempting to install it.

Here is my reply to him:

"I have attempted to install the Arctic Cooling Xtreme IV, but I can confirm it is not compatible. The back heatsink DOES NOT cover the entire memory chips (they are placed on the left of the PCB). REVERSING the back heatsink will cover the memory chips, but WILL NOT work as it will cover too much of the PCI-E gold plate, blocking it from securely locking in.

The left fan is shifted because of the GPU itself, not being able to efficiently cool down the memory chips/VRMs. The clips that came with the cooler will not work, as it is not aligned properly with the heatsink.

Also, your cooler comes with a 4-pin, where the videocard uses a 3-pin. Even if it provided with the adapter to connect the 4-pin to molex (PSU), I am left unable to control the fan speeds (unless I get a fan speed controller, but that's an additional cost). This is possibly the main reason why people are complaining that your cooler cannot efficiently cool down your VRMs as the cooler only monitors the GPUs temperature, not the VRMs (The cooler efficiently lowers the temperatures of the GPU, thus automatically sitting at idle fan speed, but if it sits at a low RPM, the VRMs will be producing more heat).

Unfortunately, with this experience, I will have to discuss this matter with my
(one of your distributors) representative in this matter and inform him, forums (
.net/l
/
/
/
review as where I purchased it from) and my clients that I have received misleading information.

Your coolers are great, but misleading information, which leads to incompatibility, causes more problems on my end (and my clients). I will no longer be stocking your products"

Guys i need your help asap!
I'm in the process of putting the accelero 3 coolers on my gpus and they have a 4pin + 3pin cable.
The accelero iv i used before only had a 4pin cable. Do i need to use both on the accelero iii? As then i'll be forced to use the molex adapter and the fans will spin at 100% all the time.
By the way the support at the accelero website is out of the window as they still have to reply to couple questions i sent them 2 days ago!

Did anyone ever get either the III or IV to work on the GB 970's?

Can't help with reference to the G1, but I do have an Accelero IV fitted to a Palit Jetstream. Whilst it fits fine, I had to bend some of the fins to clear the VRM heatsink.

It's also worth noting that the zero fan mode doesn't work with this as far as I can make out, even with the fan power set to 0% it still spins at minimal RPM (just under 700rpm). Thankfully it's silent at this speed, but worth noting...
