Default Cooling for ASUS GTX 680 - 02-20-2013, 17:37 | posts: 2

Been looking around quite a lot for what I describe in the thread title. Sadly it's difficult to find for me.

The first thing I did find was an Arctic Accelero Xtreme III. Unfortunately, it requires that my graphics card does not come with a double-deck power socket.

It does.

This is the card in question: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GTX6802GD5/

This is probably a really tiresome question that gets asked too much, but I did do a search and wasn't able to find anything, because every time I search for "double-deck power socket" then I simply get pages upon pages of "make sure you don't have it" from Google which isn't really what I'm looking for, obviously.

And no, I don't want to buy the DirectCU II which was inconveniently released shortly after the standard card with no way to upgrade short of buying an entirely new card.

I would prefer a fan-based approach. A big cooling block isn't a problem.

Any help would be much appreciated!

D'oh. Turns out it wasn't so hard if only I'd known where to look.

Thank you, I've placed my order.
