SELLING AS GOT A 780 FOR MY 40th
THANKING THE WIFE SO MUCH :-) 'N' WILL KISS HER BUTT AS MUCH AS POSS (WHEN NOT PLAYING), LOL...
WANTED A TITAN REALLY BUT WON'T TELL HER THAT
A GREAT CARD WITH AN EQUALLY GREAT COOLING UNIT
NEVER OC, ONLY INSTALLED THUNDERMASTER TO SHOW THE CARD ETC
TEMPS ARE A GOOD 25c COOLER UNDER FULL LOAD
MX-4 HEAT PASTE APPLIED
COMES WITH THE ARCTIC COOLING BLUE LED FAN ON THE RADIATOR
(NOT THE WHITE ENERMAX IN PICTURES)
A VIRTUAL SILENT FAN COOLING THE VRM ETX
REMOVED AND BOXED USING RUBBER GLOVES AND ANTI-STATIC MEANS AS IN PHOTO 7
REVIEW OF THE HYBRID COOLER
Unsurprisingly, idle temperatures are pretty impressively low for both cooling systems, but already the Accelero Hybrid is able to produce a substantially better result well outside of the margin of error.
Once a load is applied to the card, though, all bets are off. The Accelero Hybrid blows past the reference cooler, producing a massive reduction in thermals. Keep this in mind, I'm going to come back to it later.
Since the reference cooler and Accelero Hybrid both idle below the 30dB floor of our sound meter, idle noise results aren't listed. What's impressive is that the Hybrid is almost dead silent under load, regardless of the increased pressure applied to the cooling system. So while the reference cooler gets louder the harder you push the card, the Hybrid seems to have plenty of thermal headroom to spare.
Using the Arctic Cooling Accelero Hybrid on the GTX 680 has also revealed another interesting wrinkle. While overclocking on the GTX 680 is mostly limited by the Power Target, the reference cooler definitely introduces some thermal limitations. I've seen the GPU clock of the 680 take a step back and begin to throttle a little once it goes north of 70C, but because the Accelero Hybrid has so much thermal headroom, that throttling almost never happens. With the fan control manually maxed out at 85%, I registered a noise level of just 31.3dB in testing, but have actually been able to push the 680 north of 1.3GHz. The stable 6.6GHz clock on the GDDR5 has been consistent between the reference cooler and the Hybrid, but the added headroom for the GPU has allowed me to move past the ~1.2GHz I was able to attain on the stock cooling.
As I've been writing this review, I've actually been steadily testing overclocking on the GTX 680 plus Hybrid by incrementing the GPU Offset +10MHz, running it through OC Scanner X for fifteen minutes (and accepting no artifacts), then benchmarking it in 3DMark 11's Extreme test. This is by no means a thorough stability test, but it's a decent way to poke around the edges of the card's tolerances. I can't imagine how much hotter and louder it would be running with the reference cooler, but with the Hybrid at 85% it's peaking at 63C. That's at 1.3GHz, sustained load.
FULLY WORKING AND RUNNING IN PHOTOS
EVEN THOUGH THIS IS FULLY WORKING I AM LISTING AS SPARES
SICK OF SELLING PARTS AND BEING BLOWN BY THE BUYERS
THE LAST CARD I LOST £170 AND IS A FLIPPIN JOKE
(NON WORKING AND OR FAULTY/NO RETURNS/REFUNDS)
I HAVE HAD A GUT FULL OF PEOPLE BUYING PARTS AND BLOWING THEM
AND OR LIKE SO SO MANY ON EBAY WITH THEIR GPU'S/RAM/CPU'S
PHOTOGRAPHED ON CARPETS AND BEING TREATED LIKE A DOGS BALL
EBAY'S POLICY FOR SELLERS STINK LIKE HELL THERE
AND SELLERS LOSE £££'S BECAUSE OF THESE CARELESS PEOPLE
SO YOU ARE NOT COVERED AS SOLD NON WORKING
DON'T TRY IT ON IT WON'T WORK
AS I WILL BE ON THE BLOWER THE EBAY, YET AGAIN........
IF YOU DON'T LIKE MY STIPULATIONS, PLEASE PASS BY
I AM SORRY FOR THE GENUINE PEOPLE WHO USE ANTI-STATIC MEANS
WHEN INSTALLING PARTS ETC FOR THE ABOVE
AS I AM HAVING A HIGH NUMBER
OF SCAMMERS/FRAUDSTERS/IDIOTS PLAYING MINDLESS GAMES
STAMPED/SIGNED PROOF OF POSTAGE ALWAYS OBTAINED
(JUST TO COVER MYSELF AND PEACE OF MIND TO YOU THAT I HAVE POSTED ITEM OR ITEMS SOLD/PURCHASED)
(NO OFFENCE BUT DUE TO THE FINANCIAL STATE & RUIN OF OUR COUNTRY & POSTAL SERVICE
I HAVE HAD TO TAKE THIS APPROACH)
