I have an Antec P183, with the middle fan mounted on the drive cage, like in this picture:
I find this middle fan setup very convenient and efficient for cooling the video card, so I'd like to keep it.
The problem is that some longer VGA coolers might not fit.
I also wouldn't want to use more than 4 PCI slots for the whole thing (video card, heatsink and a 25mm wide fan).
I was looking at the Accelero S1 PLUS
, but I'm almost certain it wouldn't fit (while the now discontinued S1 Rev.2 probably would).
In case anyone has tried the S1 PLUS or a similar cooler let me know.
The Thermaright T-Rad2 GTX
could be an option, I guess.
I'm also looking at smaller coolers that let you use your own regular (25mm wide) 120mm fan. Like the Scythe Setsugen 2
, for example.
I'd rather avoid coolers with non-standard (non-replaceable) fans.
BTW, I plan on using it on a Radeon 7850.
