View Full Version : Accelero S1 on 9600GT: Do I need the turbo module?

Hi all,
I've finally decided to replace the noisy stock cooler on my 9600GTwith something more passive: The Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev 2. Arctic Cooling recommends the use of the Turbo Module, which is two clip on fans. I really just want to be passive, and rely on case air flow, does anyone know if I will need the turbo module?

I'm using the exact same S1 on a 9800GT with no fans. It is however the silent version and does not require a molex connector.

I'd look at maybe a low speed 80mm + fan

OK then, I am thinking of putting a fan on the spare bay slots just below the vid card, as the case doesn't really circulate air well in that area.
