I don't know. First I've tried 750, then 740 then 730. In each cases it freeze in GPU benchmark in Crysis. Then I pick 700 and it's OK now.
Anyway on my rig I don't need GPU clocked, my CPU is holding me back and for a odd reason I have trouble to get it past 2.4GHz.
It works flawless at <2.4Ghz with 1.275V Vcore, but that's is. Beyond 2.4GHz it doesn't react nor at increase voltage nor at HTT lower nor at nothing. Maybe I have a lazy CPU, or my clocking skills are absent.

SKY did you ever find a reseller for those sinks? Think I am going to pick up a S1 if I can find a set of those sinks.

I don't even know if the phrase "best cooler for its price" applies, I havent seen a better non-w/c solution out there, pricey or cheap...

Default I love it 2!

Gotta say I'm lovin' it! Here's the temps on stock GPU cooler:



and here they are with the passive AC Accelero S1.Rev.2



The first image was taken after the test was complete that is why there is a difference in the voltages.

Best $27 I've spent in years.
