Default Re: Accelero XTREME Plus for GTX 480

The Galaxy GTX480 Super OC that I am ordering soon will have that cooler, and a backplate. My goal is to hit 1ghz.

I'm really hoping the cooler does the job.

AC sent me the install kit, hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week. I'll get the results posted as soon as I have the results. I'm also curious how yours, with the backplate, compares to mine without it.

For you there would be no charge.

It was actually much harder getting the stock hsf off than installing the new one - very straight forward.

couple of pics added, sorry for the poor quality. It's early and my coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

Hate to necro, but I think this is important enough.

Installation was grueling, but I think the end result is worth it. Highly recommended. Idle temps are 38c.

Looking good! Were you able to use the same VR004 kit for the 580 or is another kit available for those?

Have to agree on the recommendation. It's been a few weeks on this for me and it never even breaks a sweat.
