i dont know about that... it does have more heat pipes, but they dont seem to be arrananged in any particular way
but i cant say for sure. one big diff between the accelero and the vf900 is that the vf900 comes w/ ramsinks and the design allows the fan to blow across them. this is a must if he plans on Voltmod'ing the 7900GT, WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
def get a 80mm side fan blowing in, i had a 120mm side fan blowing out next my 7900GT and when i turned it around the temps droped at least 5*C.
Remember to get some Artic Silver 5 thermal paste if you change heatsinks!
btw, the VF900 was, by far, the easiest hsf i have ever installed. period! you basicly set the hsf down on a desk, fan side down, and put the treaded screws (that are on the hsf) thru the holes on your 7900GT and put the nut on the back. Compared to the stock hsf where you have to line the female holes on the hsf up w/ the holes on the card and screw in from the back, its WAY easier. its basicly idiot proof. (real nice for good thermal paste contact
