It doesn't look like anyone has tried this yet, my searches didn't yield any results, at least. I bought a MSI R5770 for quite cheap. Now I know it's because the fans have a bit of bearing chatter. Last night I ordered the Accelero S1 Rev 2 and a couple 92mm nexus fans for the front intake of my Antec Solo (wish it was a Solo 2). I'm a little worried about VRM cooling, does the retail package come with the VR001 heatsinks? If not I don't have any VRM cooling lined up. This led me to wondering if any of thermalright's VRM solutions could work?
Rather than two fans in front, I'd suggest strapping one of the fans onto the S1 with some zip ties. This will dramatically cool the GPU, and also provide some fairly direct airflow over the rest of the card.
