Default Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Plus

I picked up this cooler for my 6870 and I have say I am quite impressed. Its a passive vga cooler by default but there are fans available for it. I didn't bother with the fans intended for it but attached 2x92mm Coolermaster Blademaster fans with zipties to it instead. My temps went from 70'C at full load on the gpu to 45'C. I am amazed at the results. Even with the 2x92mm fans at 100% its still much quieter than the stock blower fan at 50%. The only drawback is that its so bloody massive I had to remove one of the side panel fans on my case to make it fit. Its not a cooler for a small system thats for sure. If anyone is looking for a great cooler that performs extremely well(with the right fans) then this might be your best bet. At $18.88 price matched it was a steal.
