    Hi All


    I am getting ready to fit an Accelero Twin Turbo onto my Radeon HD4870...

    Keep reading different things about powering this cooler.

    Could anybody give me an idiots guide on this ?

    Read that I need buy a Molex splitter, I do know what this is :)

    Any help would be greatly appericiated :)

    it plugs into a port on the card, the same that the original fan is using

    noobs (or people that want to use a constant set fan speed)


    look how it connects

    the part sticking out to the right is used for molex powering (a small converter cable should be included with your twinturbo) but don't connect BOTH card cable and molex cable. that will destroy your motherboard. I know this because it happened to me :)

    Thanks Cindori, the things I read only lead to confuse.
