GTX260 Question

Okay boys and girls, i have an ASUS GTX260 SP216 55nm. i recently upgraded the cooling to an Artic Cooling Accelero Xtreme GTX Pro. it is effing amazing, the noise at 100%, its about 30% of stock cooling, 35° on idle and 45° on load. Clocks are at 720/1550/1200

Anyways, to the question, ive overclocked my card using MSI AfterBurner, shame i cant change the voltages, but anyways, my clocks are always 720/1550/1200 and dont enter power saving mode on idle... isnt it supposed to go to power saving mode when not in use normally?

  1. i don't know about afterburner but your frequencies stay the same, your core volts should go down when idling but the memory volts stay consistent unless you bring the settings back to default manually
  2. How easy was the Accelero to install? I've got 2 GTX260's in SLI and would love to overclock them to bits instead of buying a third :]. Also.. would these be able to be used in tri-sli? How much room does it take? Is it the same height or less than stock cooler?

    Thanks :)

    Tri-sli for your board wont be very useful because your board takes 2 x16 channels or 3x8 channels so you'd be losing performance on all 3.

    I was thinking this.. thank you :].

    If I'm just sticking with the two cards, maybe I should get them both a Accelero GTX and just overclock them further instead of tri sli :]
