Accelero S1 Rev. 2 for GTS 250

Recommended Posts

I am looking into purchasing an Accelero S1 Rev. 2 for my GTS 250, but I have a few questions.

 

1) I already took a 9800GTX+ fan/heatsink and put it on my GTS 250 so I see no reason this cooler wouldn't be compatible. Correct?

 

2) I am concerned about length. I had a 9800gtx+ that BARELY (without a mm to spare) fit in my case. My GTS 250 is much shorter. How long with the Accellero be in comparison? My GTS 250 isn't even to the edge of my standard ATX motherboard so it could be a little longer than that but hopefully not as long as the 9800gtx+.

 

3) Can I run this cooler without a fan? If I get a fan, what would you recommend? I know that AC made a couple fans for this cooler but I'm wondering if that's really the way to go or if I should go pick up my own 80mm fan? 120mm?. I'm also wondering about the best way to attach without any vibration noise. I've seen them hooked on by cable ties but I'm not so sure that's the best way.

 

Thanks!

 

ETA: After doing a bit more searching I might go with the T-Rad from Thermalright. Thoughts?

Accelero makes a cooler called the twin turbo which is pretty much the same with the fans already attached or you can look at the Scythe Murashi which has 2 100mm fans.

Hi guys, I wanted to ask if i could fit accelero S1 rev 2 with GTX 250?

simple question :)

 

I'm getting 4850 matrix, I had 8800gt with accelero S1 which is amazing cooler - cooling it down by 35degrees.. bro wants to buy gtx 260 and I would like to have him accelero S1, but we don't know if it can be fit on 260 or he needs to buy extreme 280gtx?

 

thanks

If it fits on your 9800 then it should fit your gts as they are practically the same cards(correct me if im wrong) Ive got one,and it really is huge.Ive got about 1/2 cm space between the edge of it and the case side panel.It does its job really well though,it knocked 25-30c off the stock coolers temps,and id imagine it'd be even better with the turbo modules attatched.
