Arctic cooling accelero extreme = win

They been doing cool and quiet gfx coolers for a good while now, and kind of got the hang of it.

Is a little fiddly to fit tho.

Dunno about the extreme, but I've used the ordinary Accelero coolers from AC 3 times now for great effect. They come with ramsinks and mini ones for the mosfets. I always have trouble with the mosfet ones, the damn things dont stick very well. If I do one in the future I'd use some thermal bonding stuff.

Posted ImageUnparalled cooling for nVIDIA GTX series
The Accelero XTREME GTX Pro delivers even more outstanding heat dissipation performance than the previous Accelero XTREME GTX 280. The five heatpipes and the copper base are soldered precisely together with a layer of the non-curing thermal compound ARCTIC MX-2 on top. The slim heatsink and three 92mm-PWM-fan design optimise the cooling capacity of the Accelero XTREME GTX Pro to 250 watts. Equipped with these advanced thermal management features, instant and efficient heat transfer performance from this exceptional cooler is guaranteed.

Same as other ARCTIC COOLING products, the Accelero XTREME GTX Pro is designed with award-winning acoustic engineering. The low noise impeller and the patented fan holder lower the noise level from rotation, resulting in extremely quiet operation at full fan speed – only 0.5 sone at 2,000 rpm.

One cooler fits all
In order to give end-users a hassle-free, all-in-one solution, the Accelero XTREME GTX Pro is packaged with various types of RAM and voltage regulator heatsinks to fit different GTX models. Installation is fairly simple and within a few steps, users can enjoy the cool and quietness brought by the Accelero XTREME GTX Pro!

Ok so just fitted it,
in case anyone else uses one most of the pack is different now its all heatsinks instead of the plates so its a bit more fiddley but it has taken over 15c off my temps and much quieter will see how it runs over the next few days.

out of interest i have another gtx280 but i need new tm pads does anyone know the thickness i need?
