Accelero Xtreme 8800

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just curious if anyone has purchased one. I got one coming from www.performance-pcs.com.

My GPU sits in the 70C area on load and wanted to correct this, I do have the room as I only have one GTS (G80) and a X-Fi on the lowest PCI slot.

From the reviews I am seeing drops as much as 20C which would put it equal with my CPU at load.

Pink, did you get that Accelero Xtreme 8800 yet? Any chance of some feedback?

I forgot to take some pics but I did get it installed.

My results are the same as Voidsplit. However if you have a a southbridge heatsink your gonna have to remove it. I had to cut a lotta plastic off the cooler to find out I still needed to remove the heatsink. I just put some ram coolers on the SB and its fine. Also the the voltage coolers didnt stay on worth a damn but was assured that a fan is blowing over them so they'll be fine without any heatsinks.

I am using the latest Rivatuner which is controlling the fans on the Accelero also. And its slightly quieter then the standard cooler....slighty.

I have attached a pic of how the ramsinks etc sit on it for anyone who plans on buying it.

As far as installed of the cooler. Well it couldnt be any easier. Just remove the screws, clean it, align it, then screw down.

Pink, how long had you been using the stock cooler? Was it easy to remove the stock heatsink?

I know that sometimes when others have tried to remove the stock heatsink from say the northbridge that they've had problems because the thermal paste becomes hard. I assume you did'nt have the same problem.

I just put one on my 8800GTX today.

The Good: It cools the GTX quite well. Idle is around 40C load is around 53C at overclocked speeds. My max overclock before was 621/1966/1458, now my max overclock is 648/2000/1458. Thats with the stock voltages as well, I think now I could probably mess around with higher voltages, and get an even higher overclock.

The bad: The little metal heatsinks for the voltage regulators don't stick worth a darn so I tossed them. Also, the stock 8800GTX heatsink is bit of a pain to remove with lots of screws, and it was kind of stuck on thanks to thermal paste they used. The cooler is a tad bigger (fans stick out a bit) then the stock cooler and might not fit with a Tri-SLI setup though two in a regular SLI setup should fit.

Verdict: A great cooling solution for the 8800GTX/Ultra. Perhaps the best you can get outside of watercooling.
