I need smaller heatsink for a GTS 250 that will be going in a Dell E521 and was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Logisys VC2200 or the AC Accelro L2 Plus. I found a few reviews on the Accelro L2 Pro which seems to be a minor step down from the Plus but just hoping to verrify.

I would almost prefer to go with the Logisys for 2 reasons, it has heatpipes which in theory should work better thank a chunk of aluminum and I can swap the fan with whatever 92mm I want.

I am digging the Accelero L2 Plus for the reason that the fan plugs into the video cards PCB so no need for a mobo or molex connector.


Here are links for the 2 products in question with pro's/cons in relation to eachother:

Pro's:
--- Fluid bearing fan included

Cons:
--- Logisys not a name associated with quality products
--- Logisys fans not known for reliability
--- Unable to find a single review for this heatsink
--- Weighs 303g
--- 1-year warranty ( booooooo )
--- Larger dimensions @ 109mm (L) x 121mm (W) x 60.5mm (H)

Arctic Cooling Accelero L2 Plus $21.47 shipped from SuperBiz ( eWiz )
