I'm still using mine in my second box............... I'm to poor to upgrade and beside, as long as it does it's intended job and plays well at Lans, I'll have to keep it........

I may as well post what my cards look like side by side. The Accelero is not even _that_ much taller than the Silencer. If only it was a few mm shorter, it would fit in my case with the door closed.

The Accelero is sweet but I like the NV5 more. The Accelero isn't even a big improvement in my view from the NV5.

I'll wait for that new Zalman. I like my NV5, not sure if it cools any better than the original heatsink though. Swiftech has a nice water block for the new Nvidia cards. I may look into it if or when I go with wc'ing.

I have to agree, the new Zalman looks pimp.

Yup, water cooling all the way.................. Nvidia block is the same one that I'm using, just a different back plate............

Whoops. That's what the block I was thinking of. I saw a pic on ebay one day and I thought I remember seeing Swiftech. After some searching I came upon that block there, which is the product I saw.

Those are extremely low flow blocks (1/4 inch tubing) but they will do the job I guess. There are other mono blocks the perform much better if you're looking at a all in one solution. All in ones are easier to use for some people but offer less performance that a GPU blocu and some simple ram sinks. I know of numorus people that have dumped their high dollar all in one mono blocks for the simple and cheaper better performing GPU block.
But like they say, if works for you and makes you happy............ then all is good.........
