Thermal Glue that came with Arctic was dried up and going to have to wait till tomorrow to try and get some.

Sucks I had almost enough to complete all my heatsinks :(

Okay got the Arctic Accelero Hybrid installed and running perfectly!

Installation was what I call intermediate, but it went good. I had to come up with my own way on the "adhesive tape and washers".
The thermal glue was dried out about 1/4 through the bottle, but I went and bought some.

My setup is:
i5-3570K on stock cooler for now, awaiting my DH-14
EVGA GTX 680 4GB

Dont mind my crappy quality photos, I plan on tidying the inside once I get my CPU cooler, to plan the space more.

Idle temps are now 28-35 degrees Celsius, before was always around 35.
On games like Crysis 3 pretty much maxed out it goes to 40-45 degrees Celcius, before 65-80
Same things with most high demand games I have now

Tried this program called Heaven Benchmark 4 and got it pushed up to close to 60 degress Celsius

Oh it is quieter all throughout especially on heavy processing than the stock.

Overall happy so far
