Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME 4870X2 VGA Cooler

does anyone know if i can use a NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen fan controller to control the fan speed of a Arctic Cooling

Accelero XTREME 4870X2 VGA Cooler for a HD 4870 X2. basically does the controller have the same fan connector? or could

anyone recommend a temperature monitor/fan controller that would work. combination of the two or seperate units

    The Accelero XTREME 4870X2 comes with a three pin fan plug that would allow you to control it off one of the M/B headers are a fan controller. :)
  2. i hear ya on that but im already going to have some kind of external temperature

    display with high temp alarm. i learned with my 1950 xtx that having that is very

    helpful. i usually use ati tools to control fan speed but it has malfunctioned on me

    plenty and so would like to use something like the NZXT Sentry-2 to monitor and

    control the card. the accelero uses PWM fans. does that matter if i were to use

    the sentry for the fan control and can i even use it at all with that 3 pin accelero?

    are you sure it has a 3 pin connector? the stock fan on the 4870 is a 4 pin
  3. in addition if anyone has the time check out my newegg wish list for the gaming setup

    im building and give me some feedback on the setup

    http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=11753452

    thought about doing a crossfire setup but i think the HD 4870 X2 is enough and

    will give me less problems heat and o/c wise

    Post this in new system builds. I would say there are better options open to you. Go to new system builds they will help you setup the best system for your money. :D

    I would wait a couple days and get the newer ATI cards as they will be faster then the 4870 X2 and cost the same if not less.
