Arctic Intros S1 Plus Turbo Module

Arctic unveiled the latest accessory for its VGA coolers, the S1 Plus Turbo Module. Arctic releases "turbo module" accessories to provide active air-flow for its passive (silent) VGA coolers. The S1 Plus Turbo Module works with the recently-released Accelero S1 Plus VGA cooler. It's not much more than a 120 mm with a special mount hole spacing. The fan spins at speeds between 600 and 1000 RPM, with noise levels as low as 0.25 sone. Its package includes rubber bolts, that dampen vibrations, a Molex power adapter, and a syringe of Arctic MX-4 thermal compound (you'll probably need to remove the heatsink to attach this, and so you'll need fresh thermal compound). Backed by a six-year warranty, the Arctic S1 Plus Turbo Module is priced at about $12.

The only other time I ever seen "sone" used for a measurement of sound is on bathroom crapper exhaust fans :D

Btw BTA, cool shuriken avi. I thought about getting a tattoo similar to that but with some emerald color added to it.

why it's bad that it's a standard fan?

you can swap it with any other 120mm fan. maybe someone wants a UV reactive fan or an enermax led fan :D

Because they've put the holes on one side 1-2 mm off where they usually are.

Cheaky buggers.

( you know, rather then make the holes standardised on their heatsink)

Hate when companies go out of they're way to make things incompatible.

This product is one of the most hillarious things I have seen this year.

The cooler itself: about $50.
A simple FAN to mount on that: $100

LOL?
(no matter what additional crap they pack with it, it's barely worth more than a cooler it's supposed to SUPPORT)

LMAO and stop talking about British food making me hungry over here in the US.

Donuts are more like bricks over here more often than not.
