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.

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
