“Recently one of the more interesting product released in their VGA cooler line-up is the all new Accelero XTREME 4780X2 cooler. It is a massive eight heatpipe based cooler that might be as big as a whale, yet is virtually silent and has extraordinary cooling performance.
If you are gutsy enough to strip down the X2 and mount a this cooler, then you can achieve temperatures that are roughly 30 degrees C lower than I’ve just mentioned, right out of the box.”

The Accelero Xtreme 4870 X2 GPU cooler is a perfect idea for anyone with a 4870X2 as it will drop your temps by a serious margin. There is a downside which may keep many people from purchasing this cooler, the 4870X2 is very different from a single GPU card when you are trying to remove the stock cooler so you can use the Accelero Xtreme. The Guru of 3D takes you through the steps required to install the cooler as well as a very important tip at the end. The original kit has a strong tendency to kill off your card, make sure you pick up the new kit with eight screws. As long as you use the new kit you should be on your way to a cool and quiet HD4870 X2.
