Sapphire HD 4850 dual slot - which cooler and case?


Standard Member
I'm looking to setting up this card in an htpc case, but am in a bit of quandary as to what my best setup is. I'm not looking to spend crazy money so the NSK2480 is top on the list atm.

However, I am not all that happy with the fan noise of my dual slot 4850. Versus my old vf700 at 5v on an 7600gt it sounds like a jet engine!

I note that the accelero has been used in this case with 4850s, but can't find info as to whether this would work with the non-reference sapphire 4850 or not (the best I could find was that the accelero would make the card combo 26cm long, but I don't want to buy this case only to find it can't accomodate that depth!)

If someone could lend a hand and give a bit of advice I'd be much indebted!

If anyone has any alternative thoughts on a case/cooler I'm open to suggestions! ... should I just forget the classic htpc idea and go for an antec solo? :s

Thanks in advance!
