I got a old PNY 6800GT (AGP) graphic card, witch I was years ago cooled with watercooling and not I would like to use it, so I have to create some cooling for it. And it should be quiet one, so - it must be huge and allow me to add a 120mm fan on it - a Noiseblocker at best. I choosen an Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 rev. 2, because:

Accelero S1 is probably not even compatibly with my GFX card - http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/discontinued-products/vga/214/accelero-s1.html?c=2264
(and it is also hard to get)

Accelero S1 rev. 2 is compatible - http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/discontinued-products/vga/24/accelero-s1-rev.-2.html?c=2264
(because is support zhe 48,3 and 53,4mm distance of four holes)

On the contrary, the Accelero S2 is strip down version - http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/discontinued-products/72/accelero-s2.html#techdata
(only two heatpipes and not four and what is worser, it does support almost all cards, only not these with the 53,4mm holes distance...)

Also no solution from Arctic Coolingu concerning active fan is good, IMHO. Their "turbo mode" with God to know how two noise small fans - phew! Not for me.
http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/vga/25/turbo-module.html?c=2182

So I give it a little bit of thought and come up with own solution:



Basic of this idea is, that I can add the fan using the rubber "screws." On the bottom side it is dead simply - into the deattachable plastic cover i just drill 5mm from it corner and 105mm from them two holes (that is the holes distance for a 120mm Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentFan XL1 fan). These are of diamater 4mm. While it is true, that the fan have a 4,5mm holes, then the plastic cover is much more slim and therefore it is only good that the hole is smaller a bit - after all, this is a rubber and it squeeze thru easily :)





On the top side the solution is more challenging. However it is enought to create a two little 20x8mm holders with 3 a 4mm holes, bend the holder into 5x3mm L profile and connect it thru the heatsink by two M3x25mm screws withz bigger bearing and that it is. The fan hold there pretty well - and it is silent rubber connection - no vibrations! :)





The good advantage of Noiseblocker is not only that the fans are quite quiet, but they also come up already with these rubber "screws" (4ks per piece, of course, not the 8 as visible on the pic):



The whole complet is a bit higher and bellow are the heatsinks on the rams that come with Accelero. They are great!



The overal look at the height clearly show, that the nearby PCI slots are busted :D Well, not a big deal. They should be clear also because unrestricted airflow is necessary for good cooling of this graphic card, that can become quite hot...




So I can only hope that I give some ideas to others, how to realize some DIY cooling and we see more interesting projects like that :)

Nice work. I last used that cooler years ago on my x1950xtx iirc. I used the small turbo fans, and they were quiet. Though back then I had an antec 900 that had some noisy fans stock. But a little noise doesn't bother me.

I ended up installing a 120mm fan onto that cooler as you have done here with great results..though the low fin density of that cooler means that low airflow is more than enough and higher airflow didn't do much good beyond cooling the VRM's a little better when monitoring. Ymmv. Still a solid vga cooling solution for older cards to say the least! Nice pictures and nice work!

Have a hd5870 with a S1 rev 2 and two 120 mm fans at 600 rpm, proper silent and the gpu is never over 50 C in gaming, the extra fans also cools the VRM and ram chips.

I dubt that. Perhaps they can fit, but overlap the heatsink by about 30 to 40mm... Yet I see no reason to, as the temps are IMHO good:



Only bad thing (tm) is, that the supplied VRM heatsinks with Accelero S1 rev. 2 did not stick on the weird active parts on the GPU VRM... and the cooler that it there used do more harm that good, becasue around 70°C is IMHO way too much in action:



Great pictures as well, keep the good things coming!
I try my best ;) Now what is holding me back is the Thermalright SI-128 SE bottom screws missing :( http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2968699


Kursah - thanks for kind words! Well, I feared that they are too noisy for me, so I opted for my solution. I'm perhaps too sensitive to fans, so... I had to ;)
And you finally ended up doing things the very same way, heh. And indeed the fins are designed for passive cooling, so they are with huge gaps. Never the less, I think the temperatures above posted speak for themselves :)
Only the damn VRM, gotta crate own heatsink with better contact on the components bellow. I did not trust the 2mm of weird material rubber-like (rubber is a great thermal isolant!) to transfer the heat well...


Brusfantomet -
hd5870 with a S1 rev 2 and two 120 mm fans at 600 rpm
Amazing! So, how you managed to fit there two 120mm fans? Pic or just describe? Never over 50°C? I have to bow down ;) That IS something. Especially considering that the TDP is 188W, witch is absolute overkill ( http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/253/radeon-hd-5870.html ).
While the 6800GT have TDP probably way less - unknown there ( http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/1774/geforce-6800-gt-agp.html ) yet there it claims 67W ( http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/130/geforce-6800-gt.html ) ...

It must be pretty cold in your PC to get as low temps with so huge TDP :)

the card is at my parents (other part of country), could get some pics next time i am there, but have no plan on going right now. The fan at the back hangs a bit out form the cooler, fasntende it with some plastic covered steal wire (the kind that is used to tie cables with). Those tempt was in a CM stacker 830 with two fans in the door blowing directly at the car as well. But the S1 is a beast of a cooler with some extra fans.

Ah, that! Too much fans, lol!
User flemeister from OCAU forum did the same thing - put a two 120mm fans on the Accelero:



Looks nice, even with the ties...
