    On memories I went from 95°C to around 75°C under load.
    GPU now comfortably boosts to around 2050MHz. Its temperature is usually between 65~70°C. And Hotspot for GPU +10°C above it.

    But I can't advise anyone to use Accelero Xtreme IV. Without front plate mod from original cooling, VRMs and VRAM temperatures were not exactly good.

    Funny thing is that I had to do exactly same thing with Accelero Xtreme on HD7970.

    While Arctic says that it is compatible, it does not mean it is good out of the box. It just means, it can be mounted. And even that required 0.25mm grind of backplate mount as its 4 screws were not fitting well to 4 GPU holes.

    Accelero Hybrid III would likely perform better while taking much less space in case + would exhaust hot air from GPU directly out of the case.

    (I wonder if I'll feel like modding RDNA2 card. But I guess AMD will not use blowers on reference next time.)
