Hi, so I wanna change the stock cooler on my RX580, its a RX-580P8DFWR, and I was considering buying the Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV, I am aware that the cooler supports the RX580, but I wanna make sure I dont have a custom PCB, or any other thing that can make a problem, thanks for your time, and have a nice day.

Yours? It would appear to be one of the custom ones.

That thread isn't bad either, but they are talking water cooling.

The reference PCBs out there have the GPU in approximately the same place as this card. Looks like the VRMs on the reference are at the front of the card rather than the more traditional rear. However, they are all fairly low components to make room for the cooler, so I think the Accelero will clear.

Only concern with the Accelero might be its extreme length. It might not fit in all chassis once installed on some of these cards. The GPU is a little further back than others.

I suspect it will be fine, but you might just try re-pasting the card first. The stock compound tends to be designed for the life of the card. There are certainly better compounds out there. As well as thermal pads.

I already repasted the card, with IC Diamond, and used new better quality thermal pads, but the card still hitting 88 at full load 90%fans, and 83 at full load and 100%fans, so thats why I was considering the Arctic cooling, the length of the card will not be a problem, my case support cards up to 335mm. Thanks for your research, I`ll take your word, and go with the Arctic. :)
