Sounds like the perfect GTX480 to me. I wonder if you can up the voltage? Could be a great overclocking card.

I was just looking at Accelero's site last night. I didn't care for the disclaimer they had for this cooler and the 480, but I'm interested.

Will wait for more reviews.

EDIT: On the bolded, my bad. I was looking at the last revision of this cooler that was tested on a 480. hopefully this new one is a winner.

Upon closer inspection, the HSF appears to be LONGER than the PCB.

If this thing isn't better than the Zotac AMP in terms of temperatures, overclocking, and noise, I'm going to be upset.

Seeing as its from Sparkle, I prolly wouldn't get my hopes up on overclocking much. ;p
