    Default Arctic Cooling Accelero GPU Coolers (X1/X2)

    As a company, Arctic Cooling needs no introduction. They are the dominant force in third party GPU cooling, and currently creating a sizable impact in the CPU cooling market too with products such as the stupidly cheap Freezer 64 Pro. If you’re on the hunt for a high performance cooler for your swanky new video card you should not ignore Arctic Cooling.

    Arctic Cooling are currently refreshing there high-end GPU coolers and the first to arrive are the Accelero X1 and X2. The X1 has been designed to fit the 7800 GT or GTX, including the GTX 512MB, while the X2 is for (you guessed it) the X1800 and X1900 range from ATI.

    I have the Sapphire ATI Radeon X1800GTO with an Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer Accelero X2 on,fitted it myself.
    with the stock cooler it idled at 71 degrees,
    so i bought an X2 to see if it helped,
    and good god did it help,
    idle temp dropped to 47 degrees.

    BUT,then i closed the case..............

    the case temp must have risen quite a bit.
    the temp then rose to 55 idle,

    and thats with 3 x 80mm fans in the case [one blowing out and 2 in] and a dual fan in the psu working away full pelt,under full Oblivion mode it hovers around 65-70 degrees.

    i think i might just buy one of those Pci twin fan exaust cards to pop into the slot next to the X1800 gto,maybe that wil drop the temps a bit more.

    whats worrying me is i have a 450w psu,will it be able to handle it ?
    or am i just over-reacting ?

    does seem a daft setup having the X2 exaust pointing at the mobo.

    I havent' reviewed that cooler so can't comment. I'd like to do a comparison with all the current coolers but all i really want to do right now is overclock the crap out of my Conroe

    It better be here tomorrow!

    I hate to beat a dead post but I need some information I can't get from Arctic Cooling. In some reviews for the X2s there is a piece of plastic that goes between the PCB and the cooler itself. Is this part 100% necessary cause I got the cooler from newegg and it's missing that piece.

    i remember receiving emails at the time of the review from arctic cooling saying that some of these plastic bits were actually a mistake and not to use them, but i can't remember if it was the X1, X2 or both, sorry

    ahh np Jameson thanks for even replying I appreciate it. If you can pick your brain and come up with anything pls let me know. I've had an e-mail and a support ticket in with AC for about a week and a half and still haven't heard from them.

    i cant say for the x1...but you shouldnt use the plastic snapper for the x2,it leaves too big a gap and ruins contact with gpu.

    one heart attack and 2 stents later...im still alive

    Lol thanks for the info. I just installed it and it's sweet. I used the mx-1 paste instead of my trusty AS 5 and load temps are still 5 degrees celsius cooler than the vf900 I took off of it. Idle temps are the same I can't believe it actually cools better. I am very pleased with this X2 cooler.
