ARCTIC COOLING Accelero Hybrid Fluid Dynamic VGA C...
WTF I cant believe that thing is that much its an h50 with a shroud that fits on gpu's
I would like if some watercooling manufacturer steals the shroud idea (and makes it universal) for VRM and Memory cooling so you can go universal + shroud with low rpm fan.
Boom, instant waterblock availability for custom SKUs.
It gets beat by the Shaman on my card unless I used two fans on the radiator
What a rip off and no decent VRM coolers like hell $170 i am sure they could of included some nice ones with it..
AC can kiss my ass cheap skates.
Add $150 and you got a decent starter loop for your CPU/GFX! They really target n00bs :shadedshu
You can use any of corsairs or antecs water cooling stuff and connect that to the gpu, along with a bracket and a 92mm fan for cheaper. The red mod, and probably this, keeps your gpu at around 60c during load.
do they actually make an H50 style mounting plate for GPUs anywhere?
There is a bracket dwood makes, from overclock network, that you can buy and attach an an h50. The antec 620 is the better/easier choice though.
Found a review :
Honestly this isn't that bad but from a watercooling addict standpoint I can't see where this would chime in, meh I don't like it.
Either a GPU gets aircooled or watercooled, this solution is in the middle and it just isn't worth it.
Is it just me, or did Arctic cooling used to be known for making cheap products that performed well?
( AC Freezer 7 pro springs to mind)
I was going to buy three of these for my 6950 build(the accellero cooler in the OP).
But with them costing so much, forget it. I can get a real loop going for the cost of three.
Used too.. I've not like'd them since they did the 2900XT cooler which was made to perform.
Now they just expensive and cheaper made.. So no it's not just you.
I wasn't sure if I should post a link to another forum in this instance.
For a single card, the red mod is great price/performance solution. I was going to do it but then found an artic accellero for cheaper. I kinda wish I just got the antec 620 and bracket.
Guilty as charged. Not really a noob, but lazy.
