Arrow Accelero XTREME Plus for GTX 480

Last edit: November 4th, 2010

I received the mounting kit from Arctic Cooling today. I do have to give AC props for customer support once they realized there really was an issue with their site. They have just completed about 2 months worth of work on it and were still ironing out bugs as I was attempting to order the kit. Thanks Arctic Cooling.

For install pics I'm just linking the thread at EVGA that Rummy kindly provided earlier as the pics of the card and install process looks no different here than Yoke29's excellent thread does there. And thanks Rummy for posting this.

Ok, keeping this short as there's not much point duplicating Yokes fine review, and that's about what it would be.

For some reason neither printscreen nor Fraps would take a good snapshot of Furmark, but...

Stock cooler load temps


Xtreme Plus load temps, same profile, nearly dead silent. temp maxed at 65c, I just forgot to mouseover to show it



If anyone wants any other temps or tests just request it and I'll do my best to help out. Sorry for the short and pretty lame review, but after all this time I just wanted it installed and done.

Yup - ghostgirl posted about the Sparkle Calibre which uses this, and the reviews I've found show this even beating the Thermalright Spitfire, and doing it silently.

Can't wait to try it out.

Nice, bro! It's been a while since I've dabbled with after market coolers. Curious how well this does.

It may help with temps it has to, but all the heat will be dumped in your case. I love my amp and it clocks very nice, but it is very hot. Imagine 3 8800gt's and that is the heat output.

That's where I'm hoping my HAF will shine - 230mm+200mm+140mm intake fans, 230mm and a 120mm for exhaust. I'm betting the internal case temps doesn't rise by more than 4 or 5c...I hope...

Awesome! I've never gone for an aftermarket GPU cooler myself. That thing is a monster though, should let your 480 run cool AND silent. Like you said though, it will be interesting to see what the case temps do.

The silent is what's been pushing me towards trying something like this. My temps aren't too bad while gaming, but I hate having to turn my speakers up to hear my game over the card's fan.

My 1200 does well with getting the heat out, but my computer room is so hot because of it.
