I just installed an Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 with the turbo module fans option on my Diamond x1950pro and got some "too good to be true" numbers out of it.

With the stock cooler I measured temps with RivaTuner while running 3dMark06 and got:

- 50-52*C idle
- 75-80*C load

After the install of the S1 and turbo's I get:

- 29*C idle
- 37*C load

I did the tests back to back, the room is about 20*C its in and the numbers just seem way too low. Its in an Antec Sonata 3 case with a noctua 120mm exhaust fan running at 800rpm and an antec tricool set on low speed on the back of the hard drive bays. A/C freezer &pro CPU cooler, Noctua passive chipset cooler To tell you the truth all my temps seem too low:

- CPU= 27*C idle, 38*load with 10 copies of cpu burn running (not the best test, but still)
- HDD0= 25*C, HDD1= 30*C
- System is at 32-37*C only one that seems normal...

Any feedaback or ideas or just count my blessings?

Where is the temp probe on an x1950pro?
I am not sure what your set up is? Pentium 4 or 2 core 4 core?

I also left the backplate from the stock cooler on as I could make it work with some longer screws I had, so I really have an "Accelero S1 XT Pro KO edition"
