Arctic Accelero Xtreme 7970

So, I bought an Arctic Accelero Xtreme 7970 1 year ago, and finally decided to mount it on a 7970.

The reference design 7970 and the Accelero

Removed the top part

Removed the heat sink block

Quickly removed thermal paste stuff

A little bit cleaner

Done cleaning the gpu chip

Now that is clean, it's like a mirror

Trying methods to hold everything in place...

Screwed the mounting plate with the backplate

Mixing the G1 thermal glue

Applied thermal glue and put heat sinks on the components

And now we wait at least 5 hours...

Put the mounting plate back on the Accelero

Assemble everything

Done !

Let's see how it performs :


MSI Afterburner

Now the temperature stays under 60°C at full load (and under 50°c with the fans set to 100%)
It also appears that the rpm of the fans is wrongly reported/acquired.
It's really quiet compared to the reference design.

The installation guide used.
