There are a couple available. Air and watercooled blocks. You shouldn't need one though, these things already run cool and quiet.

I have to disagree, my GTX580 is neither cool or quiet, easily makes it upto high 80's and noise is very noticable.

I guess compared to the GTX4** cards it's cool and quiet but not compard to my old HD5870.

edit: can't find any stock for the fittings here, says you have to buy them seperately and the only place I could find that listed them is out of stock.

I had read some not so great reports about them too, so this is the first Accelero I've ever used. So far I haven't had a bit of trouble with loose heatsinks using the thermal adhesive they give you, and temps have remained consistently good.

To top it all off, it's about silent at 85%.

The VR004 Kit Ghost girl used on her 580. I still have the 480, but I'm sure if you post questions to her in that thread she would be happy to answer.

Sorry I should have said I'm from the UK, but yes performance wise I don't doubt it's great cooler,

Ah, gotcha. Hope you find what you're looking for. Great cards when cool and quiet.

That is way to hot for a single 580. Both of mine idle in the mid to high 30's. Under load playing Bad Company 2 they never go over the high 60's.

Even in reviews they don't run that cool, it's a good cooler and it's not that good.

What are you doing? running the ran at 85%?


EDIT: here you go, results from Hexus
