ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid AIO VGA Cooler Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Secrets have reviewed the Arctic Accelero Hybrid VGA Cooler, which combines water and air based cooling solutions to keep your hot running GPU cool.
Let's see what they had to say:
"On our CPU cooler tests, we learned that liquid cooling systems with relatively small radiators don’t perform much better than huge heatpipe-based air coolers. The Arctic Accelero Hybrid, the first liquid cooling system for video cards we tested, followed the same rule.
The Accelero Hybrid showed a cooling performance similar to the best air coolers we tested so far, keeping a low noise level. The advantage of this product is the space required around the video card, which is far less than that of high-end aftermarket air coolers. This can be particularly important for users who use two or three video cards in the same computer.
For its high cooling performance and overall quality, the Arctic Accelero Hybrid receives the Hardware Secrets Silver Award."
This is a very interesting and unqiue solution to the age old problem of effectively cooling both the GPU die and the rest of the cards components without resorting to specific model water blocks. Check it out!
