Accelero XTREME 5870 - Page 4

post #31 of 107


You're right, I meant the top heatsink seen on the right ( 2 of them ). I don't know why it was missing half of the thermal pad, it seemed like it had been ripped off. Usually I'd send anything similar straight back but this time I just wasn't feeling like waiting for a month to get it back so I decided to fix it myself.

After an hour long BFBC2 session with stock clocks the core didn't go above 40c and all the VRM's stayed below 55c

The cooler itself though is massive. It covers nearly 3 PCI slots below it, although you could probably fit a card in the 3rd slot if you pushed this one back abit, but I'm not in a hurry to try yet. My physx card isn't coming back until my brother gets his new PC

Quote:
Pretty nice results, could you also post the same when the card is max-overclocked?
If I use the old profile I had for the stock cooler @ 961/1310 I reach 78c core with all the VRMs at roughly 110-120c

edit: Forgot to mention this is in furmark

Usually something like this....
I saw a review or two that showed less than 1 C cooling using heatsinks. Has anyone actually seen an improvement with them? I haven't used them since the old Zalman days on my x850xt.

Well the ones that came with the Accelero Xtreme weren't like that. Take a look at the picture I posted above.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised though. The stock cooling system isn't exactly the best one either and it doesn't have any heatsinks alike. And at the end of the day none of us really run furmark 24/7 so it's largely irrelevant when it comes to say gaming.

Hmm would it fit a R5870 Lightning, be interested to see if would be any better than the stocks that come with the Lightnings..

It should do. The PCB is black which usually means it's a reference card, but if I was you I'd check a few reviews or such to find out to be sure.

Seems to be a higher quality product than the twin turbo. From that video the twin turbo doesn't look like a very well thought out product, not to mention with the VRMs that don't have any heat-sink.

Fyi the twin turbo does come with vrm heat sinks.... There are two version of the twin turbo the old on before the 5870 and the update version. The vrm heat sinks are stupidly small and are pita to mount properly....

Xern where did you order yours from?

Quite pc in the uk is the only place i can find it at besides arctic cool them selves... I'm in the states so i don't want to pay 20-48 dollar shipping and then wait 1 week or 2...

I live in Finland so this is probably pretty useless for you but :

I'm rather surprised that Newegg doesn't have any of them... Although you could always get a Zalman VF300 which according to the other thread has similar results

It's PCB is one of the most custom ones out too bad the coolers quality isn't up to par...

On that video it doesn't appear to cover these (which the Xtreme and stock cooler do):
