I'm not running an SLI setup, but from what I understand, and at looking at my S1, you should be able to slip the SLI bridge cable in between the fins with no issues. Just bend the fin support over, slide the cable in, then bend the support back to avoid vibrations or movement of the fins.Now, if only they would make one with a gap cut out so you could still use SLI. Otherwise, this cooler will not make my two cards happy.
I get 48 degrees under hours of ACHmm I'd still recommend that people consider this move thoroughly before going ahead with this. I installed one on my BFG 8800GT OC2 and it overheated and now has at least some memory that is now bad. I can play some less graphics intensive games allright, but if I play Assassin's creed or Call of Duty 4 for more than 8 minutes my screen get full of red artefacts and the computer locks up. The Card broke on the first playing of Assassin's Creed minutes after I installed the Accelero heatsink.
hardware canucks said:This little exercise has made it apparent that provided it has the proper amount of ramsinks and VRM sinks, ANY cooler compatible with the HD3870 series will also be compatible with the HD4870 and HD4850. We tried the Thermalright HR-03 GT, Thermaltake DuOrb, Coolink GFXChilla and Arctic Cooling S1 Rev.2 and every one of them fit without any problems at all. Beautiful, isnt it?
