Pulled the trigger on the Accelero Xtreme...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I saw it for $50 on Mwave.com and the mounting set was only like $7, or something, on the product's main page. Shipped it off and it'll be here soon.

What kind of temps should I see with this thing? Mind you it MIGHT not fit my case... XD

GTX 470 is mah card it's going on.

id be carful with it im not sure about nv cards but i know ati cards it killed more then a few killed my first 5870 and my friends 5850 cause of its poor vrm cooling.

You will see idles in the low 30 C and game loads around 65-70c.
The biggest difference comes from the noise, it's one speed so it won't ramp up as you play.

Though I do have one question, could I get a higher overclock if my temps were low enough?

Both yes and no. In my experience temps matter only so much if you hit certain clocks, but generally the cooler you get the chips, the higher you can go (much due to voltages increasing temps radically). Also, I have no personal experience with water, but you usually reach higher clocks with wc blocks due to the extreme level of cooling. I would increase the voltages and clocks more carefully with air, and check other achieved clocks here on ocn for reference (remember that many of the clocks are purely benching clocks and not 24/7).

The AC Xtreme plus cools the gpu really well, but I would get some alternative vrm cooling if I were you, just to be sure. Guess you need three sinks for the gpu vrms and memory vrms in total. Imo the AC sinks are too thin and flimsy to be really effective, and you would do good in getting sinks with a bit more mass. You already get the glue in the kit package, and it works quite good for these purposes. I understand it if you are eager to get going once you recieve the cooler, but since you will be gluing the vrms you want to make sure this is a permanent solution. I were to impatient and got burnt, like you probably already saw in my post/review in this section.

I was looking at the Accelero as well. This is the first I have heard of the VRM cooling issue, so I poked around for a cooler. Found this: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...480.html#blank

Seems that it is built to place the heatsink next to a side fan, so maybe setting up a side pan to pull instead of push air would get some good results, depending on airflow in the case. Maybe leaving it to push would be better, since it would not create a dead area in the center of the case.

I'd like to know more, before spending >$100 on the two coolers. Can anyone give me some advice on this?

I've had no problems with my AXP cooled 580. It's got a beefy overclock and I run the AXP fans at 100% and theyre still completely inaudible over the case fans. Just make sure you're case is not cluttered and enough cool air is being fed to this triple fanned behemoth.

I did the best cable management as I possibly could... The only things that are in the air path between [front fans push -> GPU -> read fan pull] are the PCIE power cables, 8-pin mobo, and the two tubes from my CPU block to the radiator, and they are fairly out of the way and, as far as I know, do not create much drag at all.

As far as noise goes, I like to keep my case fans at the minimum (the 1200 has rotary fan controls in the front, switches for L/M/H for the rear and ceiling) and even then they make quite a bit of noise. If running the AXP at 100% speed is quieter than my case, then great! The stock fan on my GTX470 at >48% is louder than my case. The noise is probably more apparent for me since, for lack of room, I have my tower sitting on top of my desk, behind my monitors. It seems like a worthwhile upgrade just for the noise reduction, not to mention the lower temperatures.

Thanks for your feedback

Nah, I heard the AXP quite well at even 50% fan speed. Thing is that you probably wont need more than 40-50% speed to cover your needs, so thats really not of an issue At 100% you probably wont hear the leaf blowers outside of where you live.

My AXP has served me well. My GPU usually runs at 31C idle and rarely goes above 60c during gaming. I don't think I've ever run the fan above auto speed (44%) other than furmark testing it.

Once I get my 480 Lightnings, I'll probably sell it though. Def has been a good purchase as I hated the reference 480 jet take off sounds.
