ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME GTX 280 Fluid Dynamic VGA Cooler

This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME GTX 280 Fluid Dynamic VGA Cooler

Pros: 10's od DB's lower than stock cooler. Intially keeps cards 10c or more below stock

Cons: Feels like a kit for modders vs. mainstream user. Not horribly difficult to assemble but it takes quite a bit of prep and patience.

It's HUGE. Not sure what SLI compatabile gurantees but I can't see getting another card along side this one.

Other Thoughts: Make very, very sure you have robust air flow in your case. This setup just pushes around the air in your case rather than exausting it out the back. After a prolonged run with Mass Effect 2 I was treated to a locked screen and the sad smell of near burned plastic. OC 260 for parts anyone? Cheap?
