Default Installing the Accelero GTX280 on a eVGA GTX285 SSC

Hello All,

This will be my work log and gallery for installing, what could be the best air cooler for the nVidia GTX285 video card.

Since most of you have see the GTX285 without clothes on I won't post too many pictures of the nekked card.

The items I am using to install the cooler are as follows:

1. Accelero GTX280 air cooler


2. Enzotech CNB-S1L southbridge cooler


3. Enzotech BCC9 low profile ram coolers.


4. Enzotech MOS-C1 mosfet coolers.


I purchased the Accelero from quietpc.com UK since it isn't available in the US yet.
I purchased everything else from www.performance-pcs.com
Great Service and selection, never any issues with orders!

On to the pictures!

-J

You can see in the below picture that the chip is somewhat larger than the heatsink area on the cooler. I was a little disapointed when I saw this. It may not make any difference, but I think that it needs to cover the entire IHS of the VGA chip.



Here you can see the overhang of the chip IHS under the Accelero heatsink.


A shot of the clearance


Ram sinks installed. There seems to be a sight clearance issue with the top edge ram sinks and the cooler. I will try and get some other pics later this weekend. I think I may have to do some trimming of the ram sink pins to get the issues resolved.


Last one for today. I will have to file the mounting holes on the SB sink to get it installed. I will post more as I go.


Catch you on the flip side!

I wanted to get three of them ,But I heard they want fit because it takes up nearly three slots.Plus I was looking how big it is and a GTX 280 heatsink is 10.5 L X 3.75 w X 1.5 D in inches and the artic cooler is 11.3 L x 4.1 w x 2.13 D in inches.My already are touching each other so I know if they are over .63 inches in depth bigger they want work for my TRI SLI.My tempertures are fine as long as I set the fan on 65% .I just wanted them hopeing they would be quieter.

Base wasn't as flat as I thought....


I did lap the base to 1000grit...couldn't quite get the courage to lap the GPU


You can see where I had to trim the Ram sinks to fit the cooler. PITA!!




These are the holes I had to file in order to get the sink line up with the holes on the video card.


I had to remove the fan assembly from the Accelero in order to "bend" upward the "wings" of the cooler in order to make a little more clearance.

Some trimming I had to do for the smaller chips.


All of the heat sinks installed!!

The process of getting it installed was a pain!

First, my sata cables hit the cooler fan, had to redo my cables and cross my fingers that the RAID would still function with the cables plugged into different ports.

Next was trying to install the physX card! Bloody nuchkes to show for it!









I will be posting some testing results later this weekend. I did do a quick run on Furmark and I saw 57deg. I was O/Ced to 734 core 1594/1400.

Let me know what you think!

I like your physx setup. Fans blow through that card and on the ram/voltage chips on the 285 XD

Thanks,

It seems to work pretty well, even in physX intevsive games (Mirrors edge) the physX card doesn't get hot at all, so it doesn't blow hot air onto the GTX285.
