Heatsink question for HD4830

Hi all. Been some time.. :sweat:

I have a 8800GT with Accelero S1.

I recently bought a HD4830 which came with a Zalman VF900-Cu LED and a fan speed cable in the form of a resistor.
I would have used the HD4830 straight away but it's not silent and speedfan reported the fan at 1800rpm.

Now, my question is that can I use my Accelero alone on the HD4830 i.e. no 12cm fans strapped to it.

I have no case fans. The other fans are the AC Freezer and the one in my Enermax Liberty 620W PSU.


Thanks.

  1. According to Arctic Cooling this heatsink can be used as a passive cooler.

    Try it with no fans and see what your temps are...
  2. Just like grieve said, give it a shot. It can never hurt. I think it will work quite good.
  3. Thanks for the replies guys.

    Well, I once tried the Accelero S1 with the Sapphire HD4850. The card died right after changing the cooler - no display ever came. :fou:

    So, I am being cautious this time.

    I'll try it tonight and post back on what happens. :wahoo:
