Arctic Accelero Mono Plus on XFX R7 260X

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I thought I'd quickly share my experience so far with the Accelero Mono Plus cooler I installed on my XFX R7 260X card a while back. To make it simple I'm very pleased with it. The quality of it seems good, and the performance is excellent.

On stock clocks I was getting over 70c on furmark and over 80c with the core at 1225MHz and the memory at 1850MHz. 65-70c while gaming. With the new cooler I haven't seen anything higher than 53c on furmark and around 45-50c while gaming.

The great thing too is that even with the fan at 100% I can't hear it at all. The only way I could hear it was with all the case fans off, and even then it was barley audible.

The only gripe I have now with this cooler installed is that I can't fit a card in the pcie x1 slot under the GPU. I also can't fit a regular thickness fan on my side intake now, but that's not a fault of the cooler as much as me having a more narrow case and putting the cooler on the middle mounting point rather than the one that would keep it closer to the motherboard.

That actually brings up another point, for a while I was worried that this wasn't going to fit because the bracket hit the caps on the board, but then I found the smaller mounting brackets in the box, and they fit perfectly with the included spacers. The abundance of included heatsinks for the the vram seem to work very well too.

Here's a couple pictures I took before/during/after the install:

Cooler in its packaging.


Original screws on the back of the board. I was actually able to remove the screws without damaging the warranty stickers on them thumb.gif


Stock cooler next to the card. It wasn't small, but the middle section had solid metal under it, so air couldn't flow through it.


Cooler and card installed in the case.

I want to buy Arctic Accelero Mono Plus for my gtx 660 ti but I am not sure.

My pc case Cooler Master N200 Does this fit in?


CPU cooler height:
w/o 120mm x 25mm side fan: 160mm / 6.3inch
with 120mm x 25mm side fan: 140mm / 5.5inch

is it enough ?

I don't have that case, card, or cooler anymore so I can't check any dimensions. All I can say for sure is that cpu cooler (enermax ets t-40) stuck out a bit further than the arctic cooler did.

It was a raidmax horus. The side panel did close. If I recall correctly, the mounting of the cooler to the gpu did have a couple different positions. It's going to depend on your card a lot too.
