Arctic Makes Accelero Hybrid Generally Available Late May

First pictured with Inno3D GeForce GTX 680 iChill Hybrid, Arctic plans to make its Accelero Hybrid air+liquid graphics card cooler generally available on May 29. The Accelero Hybrid consists of a closed-loop liquid cooler for the GPU, and a cooler shroud that suspends a fan, which guides air through heatsinks over the VRM and memory chips. Heat from the GPU is dissipated at a 1U radiator, which is ventilated by a 120 mm Actic F12 PWM-controlled fan. Measuring 243 (L) x 112 (W) x 44.2 (H) mm, the net weight of the cooler (graphics card module) is 363 g; while the radiator measures 150 (L) x 120 (W) x 52.8 (H) mm, weighing 503 g.

Arctic includes heatsinks for the VRM and memory chips, a syringe of Arctic MX-4 thermal interface material for the GPU base, and Arctic thermal adhesive tapes for the VRM and memory heatsinks. Arctic did not give out a complete list of graphics cards supported, but it does mention that both NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards will be supported. Support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 has already been established thanks to Inno3D.

TBH if you wanted this for a gpu, you would probably want similar for the cpu. why not just get full water cooling.

Bet it will cost too, when you start spending $100+ on a aftermarket cooler may as well go full water block, nice concept though... I think

More like if you want your CPU and GPU water-cooled then assemble your own loop. This is perfect if you just want to water-cool your GPU and leave your CPU overclocked on air. If reviews and compatibility are good, this will sell easily and I'll get one.

perfect for my next PC build, its a no fuss LCS compared to my old messy Aquagate Max. Also its been years since we saw a All-in-one liquid cooling solution for video cards. :rockout:

can't wait to see corsair follow suit and expect their oem partner coolit to provide a the product for them in a retail sku

I like the idea for a watercooled GPU but it would be better if it was single-slot.

well u got dual DVI on top on each other so making it single slot won't actually do u anything good, bcs it's designed for the ref. pcb design by nvidia.

and adding a fan i don't think it's anything wrong with that for help cooling the ram and vrms ^^

I really dont think it matters, most motherboards are now laid out with the assumption a graphics card takes up 2 slots.

Ya, I guess have to start thinking "Outside the box." Or in this situation "Outside the case" :p

Tubes are better than Corsair H series. Reminds Antec.

given the design, they look made by Asetek - who also makes Antec's and Corsair's closed loop water coolers.

Definately looks like Asetek

Not all Corsairs are made by Asetek. Only two models most noticeably by the circular design pump and cpu heatsink with thicker hoses. The others Corsairs with a square design are made by Cool-It.

so the water cools the core and the air cools the rest.

This looks like the Antec Kuhler 620. You can easily mount it on any gpu with just 9 zip ties and 30 minutes of your time.

great idea, i hpoe that the pump can withstand 75-80 degree temps, 24/7, because otherwise it is not going to be reliable compared to the air cooled HSF of standard gpus...

what is the warranty on this?...
if the life span of a unit decreases by half every 10c, and the max temp operating temp of a cpu tends to be 55c and the max operating temp of a GPU is 75... the life span is going to need to be 4 times greater than the cpu's pump.
then i guess people only stress their GPU 25% percent of the time playing games, so it is moot point.

that would be a pretty unorthodox way of mounting it but at the same time it would look ugly as sin.

Unless you use your CPU for folding/crunching 24/7 then i dont see this a as a problem. I dont quite understand what you mean by max operating temp but it generally depends on the CPU but generally speaking, anywhere under 60'c load is a good thing. Its only in extreme cases where my 2500k comes anywhere close to 60'c otherwise its happy to run at around 50-55'c for BF3 and other games.

its not going to be stressed out unless you mount some really slow ass fans to the rad or run it passive in which case your CPU would probably go into thermal shutdown before windows fully loads up.

A self contained LC kit for something that doesn't exist :confused:

Seriously if looking at this; GO FULL WATER :)

going 'full water' costs significantly a lot more, not to mention that Waterblocks for GPUs are quite expensive for even just one of them. Here in the UK, Just one standard EK-FC7970 block costs $130.

So don't use a FC block, a decent WC setup with tripple rad should be around $300 - $350, you can go higher of course. Swiftech Apogee kit's would be a good start just add a GPU block, much better than this pre built stuff IMHO.

I really doubt people will want to WC just the GFX card

I dont think they do non-FC blocks for cards like the 7970 unless you get one of them really cheap shit generic GPU blocks that only cover the GPU and nothing else that are roughly the same size as a nothbridge chipset block. or even smaller in some cases.

something like a EK VGA Supreme HF Universal Graphics Card Waterblock or a ThermalTake Aqua Brazing W2 Copper VGA GPU Water Block CL-W01088. I assume - at around $65 each they are cheaper but they are harder to find and usually in short supply which doesnt help the overall price when you find them.

I understand what you are trying to say but its not worth the fuss unless you run SLi or crossfire where you might have trouble fitting two of these units inside your case.

if anyone wanna know how this cooler would look on a GTX 680 this is a drawing Arctic-Cooling as put on their page and i think it looks good even the plastic holding the fan ain't that beautiful but i can't wait to see how well it will perform.



and on the bright side it's not like it will go 3 slots like most aftermarket air coolers.

even ino that the Inno3D pics showed it but this is a bigger pic gives more details than:

I was going to get a Twin Turbo for my 680 but I'm really liking this. I hope SuperBiiz has these cheap like they do all the other Acceleros.
