Arctic Cooler Accelero X1 Review - Page 1 of 3

INTRODUCTION

So, you've purchased an expensive video card to bring up your frame rates in F.E.A.R. Or maybe it's just to get better 3dMark score to show off your system. But there's a problem. The cooling fan is loud and the high temperatures make overclocking next to impossible. By now, you have figured out that you need to get an aftermarket heat sink and fan. But which one should you get? Good question.

I've had the opportunity to install the Arctic Cooling Accelero X1 Heat Sink and fan. It's an excellent cooling device that was provided by CrazyPC. Arctic Cooling provides two versions of the Accelero. The X1 is for nVidia's 6800 and 7800 series cards. The X2 is for the ATI X1800 and X1900 series cards.

FEATURES

Extremely Quiet - A large fan and optimized fanblades offer minimum noise level with high air flow. The Fluid Dynamic Bearing keeps oil inside the bearing thus reducing friction and keeping the noise level to a minimum.

Unique Cooling Performance with 6 Heat Pipes

Fully SLI and BTX compatible - The Accelero X1 is SLI compatible with all mainboards and offers in such a configuration exactly the same performance. In contrast to our NV Silencers, the Accelero is 100% BTX compatible, thus a DHES is not possible/necessary anymore. The hot air is removed by the BTX airflow.

Voltage Converter Cooling - Some air is blown out from the air guide window towards the voltage converters on the VGA board.

Patented Vibration Absorption - The motor holder consists of a rubber part at the centre to act as a vibration damper. It can help absorb the vibration of the running fan and prevent vibration transfer to the heatsink and the case.

Easy Installation - The cooler is easy to install within seconds.

Long Lifetime / 6 Years Warranty -The Fluid Dynamic Bearing offers a unique 400,000 h MTTF at 40°C. Therefore we grant a unique 6 years warranty.
