Games these days are more demanding on a video card than ever before. So demanding that it isn’t uncommon for a game to crash because the video card is too hot. A common solution to this problem is to open up the case and set a fan point-blank on the video card and turn the fan on its highest setting. What if there was a more practical, inexpensive, and quieter solution to this issue? Let’s look at the new Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 to see if this is the solution to the common problem of video card overheating. We'll also be taking a look at the Arctic Cooling Turbo Module to see if the product gives the user an advantage while pairing it with the Accelero S1. These products are sold separately, but are designed to be paired with one another.
"ARCTIC COOLING is a leader in creating thermal cooling solution for personal computer systems that enable CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) and PC-case cooling while reducing the noise level. Increased heat generated by modern computer systems has overwhelmed most existing CPU cooler manufacturers in their efforts to keep pace with the demands in terms of cooling."
The package that holds the Accelero S1 is quite revealing since you can see nearly the whole product front and back. When you flip the package over, you’ll see just where the GPU is going to make contact with the Accelero S1.
The Turbo Module is packaged nearly the same as the Accelero – revealing the product openly. You really get the idea, just by looking at the packaging, that this product is made for the Accelero.
Let’s open up both of these products and take a closer look at each of them.
