Arctic Cooling send out a press-release announcing the biggest VGA cooler I have ever seen, the Accelero Xtreme Plus, a new VGA cooled with a copper base, five heatpipes and a huge aluminium heatsink with three 92mm fans. The cooler is compatible with most recent high-end graphics cards, including the GeForce GTX 400 and Radeon HD 5000 series. The heatsink measures 290mm x 104mm x 56mm (L x W x H) and weighs 622g, and small heatsinks for the memory chips and VRM are also included in the package. The Arctic Accelero Xtreme Plus should be available in retail stores for around $65.95 (54.95EUR).
The main heatsink is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 250W. The cooler is also compatible with the mounting plates of older some Accelero models that give it compatibility with other popular GPUs, importantly support for Radeon HD 5000 and GeForce 9/GTS 200 series with the VR001 mounting kit.
The main heatsink consists of a copper-made GPU contact base from which five heat pipes convey heat to two blocks of aluminum fins that are cooled by three 92 mm fans. A patented cooler shroud design works to dampen noise generated by the three fans. The three fans spin at speeds between 800 and 2,000 rpm. The heatsink measures 290 L x 104 W x 56 H mm, weighing 622 g. Click the thumbnail.
