Not too long ago, Arctic leaked a bucket list socket LGA1150 processors which aren't due for another five months. The PC cooling major now updated the GPU support lists of its Arctic Xtreme 7970 and Arctic Accelero S1 Plus to include three Radeon HD 8000 series GPUs, HD 8970, HD 8950, and HD 8870. Either Arctic is riding on the assumption that the mount hole spacing of those GPUs won't change from current HD 7000 series, or that it's catering to the various HD 8000 series desktop graphics cards in circulation by OEM desktop PCs, which are rebrands of HD 7000 series parts.

I used to have a 4870X2 until I bought this cooler for the card. After I mount it, the card was kaput...

well DUH! they're the same cards :shadedshu
But if you read the original news, you will see that AC III have compatibility with HD 8970 and HD 8950, which didn´t happen with HD 7970 and HD 7950, or is just a typo.

Oh yes I do remember that was quite a common issue with Arctic coolers back in the 4870x2 day.

Yes they are good on GPU cooling but they lack on VRM cooling which is also important.

If you are thinking about this kind of cooler without having already purchased the GPU then you'd be better off with a Twin Frozr or Windforce X3

There are two ways to address VRM cooling, the main cooling unit can have a heatpipe connected contact plate specifically made for the VRM area or just separate mini heatsinks that get the secondary airflow that passes through the main heatsink.

The arctic mainly uses mini heatsinks unless it is a very specific unit like the Arctic for dual GPUs
