RX480 Reference Vs. Arctic Accelero X3 Cooler – CAN IT OC HIGHER?

CAN IT OVERCLOCK HIGHER? That is something that I have been wondering even since I got the RX 480 in here, though I just never got enough time to test if slapping on a much better cooling solution would do anything for the card. And honestly after benchmarking, I did manage to hit 1.4ghz on the RX480, though everything wasn’t entirely as it should have been…. And the ambients were pretty hot, in an airconned room I am sure things would have been different, but interesting none the less, and maybe it calls for different kind of benchmarking with overclocks?

Though check the PCB before buying an Accelero to make sure it will fit with your GPU, though it will make a big difference to temps and noise, it might not help with overclocks after gaming for a long time (in the case of an RX480, though with my 980ti I managed to gain some higher OCs).
