SLI Cooling

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey gang,

Was curious if anyone has used the Accelero XTREME Plus
VGA Cooler with two GTX 570 in SLI. I have a microATX mobo, and was concerned if I'm able to still SLI. Is the cooler thicker than my EVGA GTX 570s?

Yes the Accelero extreme is thicker than the stock cooler.

Stock cooler is dual slot while the AXP is triple slot so you can't use it on your mobo for SLI

Its 3Slot, so you can't SLI with it on that Mobo.

How many PCI-E Slots have you got? I am in a similar condition (Asus Rampage Extreme II) with similar needs (the cooler(s) you mentioned). I managed to put my second card on the 3rd slot and I will soon find out (by trying) if I can use 2x Accelero Xtreme Plus on my twin 580

If I was you I'd go Custom Cooler with the lower card, it won't solve the upper card issue but you'll certainly reduce noice by silencing the lower card. A small gain but still.
