ARCTIC has recently launching a new VGA cooler, the ARCTIC Accelero XTREME Plus which is a multi-compatible cooler for high-end VGA boards which is much more effective inaudible cooling solution, for users to replace those stock coolers.
While the Accelero XTREME series has gained notable recognition in the past, the engineering team in ARCTIC continues to improve and creates a VGA cooler that is compatible with various high-end graphic cards.
While high-end VGA stock coolers are usually noisy and inefficient, ARCTIC develops the Accelero XTREME Plus, a much more effective inaudible cooling solution, for users to replace those stock coolers.
The Accelero XTREME Plus VGA Cooler is capable of 250 W maximum cooling capacity, which is an unmatched cooling performance in this multi-compatible VGA cooler.
Since the fan models in the Accelero XTREME series cooler have proven to be inaudible and effective, the Accelero XTREME Plus VGA Cooler adopts a similar design – three ultra-quiet 92mm PWM fans with low noise impeller, five heat pipes and 84 fins for efficient heat dissipation.
This three-fan Accelero XTREME Plus cooler runs from 900-2000 RPM to generate enough airflow to dissipate heat quickly from the GPU.
When the Accelero XTREME Plus is used with ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphic card, the noise level is 0.5 sone with temperature maintaining at 41°C at 2000 RPM. However, when the stock cooler runs at the same speed, it is 3.5 sone with temperature at 77°C.
With this comparison, it is evident that Accelero XTREME Plus VGA cooler manages to reduce temperature effectively at minimum noise level.
The patented fan holder on this cooler also plays a prominent role in reducing noise to a minimum level as it eliminates the vibrating sound of the fan with the frame.
The ARCTIC MX-4, the new thermal compound from ARCTIC, has been pre-applied onto the copper plate to provide superior thermal conductivity
Another key feature in the ARCTIC Accelero XREME Plus VGA Cooler is its interchangeable mounting plate for vast compatibility for new or yet to be released graphic cards.
Along with the Accelero XTREME Plus VGA Cooler, users need to purchase and install a set of accessories with their cooler, including a mounting frame, thermal glue, heatsinks for RAM coolers, and heatsinks for voltage regulators.
Rather than having several VGA coolers designated for specific graphic cards, ARCTIC develops this generic model of cooler and various accessory sets to make the cooler compatible with different VGA boards.
As new VGA cards are released, ARCTIC will design and release new fittings; hence this makes the Accelero XTREME Plus very versatile for overclockers to upgrade their computers frequently. This also helps overclockers to provide quick and effective cooling solution for new graphic boards.
