Arctic Cooling Announces Accelero Twin Turbo Pro VGA Cooler

The Swiss low noise cooling solution provider ARCTIC COOLING today announced the launch of the Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO. This dual-fan cooler is designed for fitting ATI and NVIDIA graphic cards, offering a truly cool and quiet solution for most enthusiasts.

This superior cooler is the upgraded version of the reputable Accelero TWIN TURBO. Instead of using 80mm fans, the Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO features two 92mm PWM fans for more advanced heat dissipation. The unconventional 4-heatpipe architecture together with 35 fins achieve up to 120 watts cooling capacity. Also with a layer of the ARCTIC MX-2 thermal compound on the base, the Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO guarantees instant and efficient cooling at all time.

Whisper quiet
Using bigger fans does not mean the noise level will increase. The new fan blades of the Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO are designed for improving the laminar airflow. This new architecture reduces noise level to minimal, achieving a nearly inaudible operation – only 0.3 sone at full speed, even quieter than the Accelero TWIN TURBO.

ATI and NVIDIA compatible
Its flexible mounting mechanism is designed with two sets of screw holes – 53mm and 43mm which are suitable for a wide range of ATI and nVIDIA graphic cards. From ATI Radeon HD 4890 to nVIDIA GeForce 6600, the Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO is the best choice for most overclockers worldwide to unleash their graphic card potential! A cooling solution trusted by industry leaders VGA card manufacturers such as Inno3D, PowerColor / Vertex3D, ELSA and Axle have opted for this ‘turbo’ to boost the graphic performance of their products – so why don’t you get one for yourself?

The Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO won the “Top Product” award and mark 1.54 (very good) from a reputable German PC magazine PC Games Hardware. “ARCTIC COOLING's Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO offers excellent cooling performance at a very low noise level”, the magazine concluded. The Accelero TWIN TURBO PRO offers a 6-year limited warranty. It will be available in December 2009. The MSRP is US$49.90 and 34.90 € (excl. VAT).

Compatibility

ATI Radeon HD 5870, 4890, 4870, 4850, 4830, 3870, 3850, 2600, 2400, X1950, X1900, X1800, X1650, X1600, X1550, X1300 series

I think one of these will look sick on a 5870, it looks like it will beat the sapphire vapor x edition on cooling (I hope) this would be a good choice if you find the reference cooler not satisfying your cooling needs.

No 5850? thats a bit odd, they have the 5870 listed afterall.

The fans blow straight down onto the memory chips (unless they are on the back of the card). If you were concerned you could get some small stick-on heatsinks for the memory.

That is surely an oversight.


It goes to show how cool ATI's new GPUs are, when they can be cooled by this, and don't require the beefier Accelero Xtreme coolers.

Accelero Xtreme GTX 280

I have one of those and indeed the temperatures dropped with nice ~30 degrees celsius while the noise is - no noise :D

BUT (there is always one but) the power regulators doesn't have heatsink "love" so they go hot as they did with stock coolings. thus it gets 9 out of 10 :D

They come with ram sinks all the time, just look in their support PDF files.

would like to see them just sell the fan unit, as I already have the heatsink ...

Actually the fans are indeed bit week, but for that heatsink (fin space is bit larger and the fin surface is not that big) they are OK.
The best thing for AC fans is that they are quiet... For me that was huge reason to go with this cooler.

What a load of crap it's about time they made more like the Accelero XTREME 2900 which could handle twice the heat of this piece of crap.

This probably costs less eh?

And still offers pretty decent cooling results.

My load temps are under 50 c on my 3850 and it idles are 32, I have the same heat sink but with the 80mm fans.

Not quite a piece of crap : ]

You read my mind dude! :roll:
This is what I am thinking right now, this thing is only good for 120W of heat.

Well it is indeed sub-par if you want to slap it on an OCed 5870. :shadedshu
That web page on AC uses the 4870 as an example, but the 5870 is closer to the 4890 in heat output and power consumption.

Do they use the same heatsink?
It looks like all they did is move the heatpipe to the other side of the cooler. :respect:

So the new fan should fit right?

It looks like its the same as the old fan in every way except a few more cosmetic holes etc. :wtf:
Edit: The new fans move more air due to more fan blades.

Technically it has more surface area then the 5870s stock heat sink, it should perform better.

Nice cooler! I wonder how this will perform against the Xigmatek Bifrost?

They look nearly identical :laugh: I'm willing to bet 4 euros ( yes not even my own currency ladies and gents!) that they perform pretty much the same.

So I'd go for which ever is cheaper/quieter depending on what you want.

The only difference between the two that I know of is that the Bifrost has HDT and 100mm fans, but the AC might be quieter due to their reputation.

Memory/VRM heatsinks included.

It supports the screw-mount of HD 5870, so it does support HD 5850.

I find HDT doesn't make much of a difference, look at thermal-right coolers, still up there even without HDT.

100mm vs 92 mm could make a small difference in temps.

But what do I care, I'll be using a HR-03 GT on all my cards from now on anyway.

Even my $10 dollar form OC PC3 is better than the AMD stock CPU cooler, doesn't mean it is good. :shadedshu
