Heck, I played JC2 maxed at 3840x1024 and didn't even get constant full GPU usage.

You could use that cooler in Crossfire if you could space out the cards and the lowest PCIe and highest PCIe support 16x and your case is deep enough to allow the lower cooler to hang down lower than the bottom of the mobo.
I have seen pictures, but I thought it was a joke.
The stock coolers are great and I don't see wasting money on anything other than water cooling. I have see the accelero cooler in person and didn't keep the card that cool compared to the stock cooler
