New 8800GT cooler needed

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
My 8800GT is a flat out leaf blower. Simply put, I'm looking for a new cooler for it. I know that there are tons of them out there that fit the 8800GT, but as of now, which work the best? The Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev. 2 seems to be a popular choice and at a good price. Thoughts? Thanks guys.

ps. did anyone else happen to get one of the galaxy 8800GTs? I've been putting this off for months.

I ordered mine from newegg, and directly after they went out of stock. Petras tech shop also had them for a tad cheaper, but I was ordering more stuff from the egg. Goodluck on your hunt.

I have Accelero S1 Rev.2 and I love it. It keeps cool, great price, silent if you want it to be, add the turbo mod if you got the extra, like $7, and you can keep it cool stock or even OC quite a bit. Great cooler though!!!!!! (775/1850/1000)
