I would like to thank Arctic Cooling for supplying us with the test sample.

152(L)x90(W)x30(H) mm
141(L)x120(W)x28(H) mm
Fan speed: 2000 RPM
Air Flow 9.82 CFM / 16.7 m³/h
Bearing:Fluid Dynamic Bearing
Service Life: MTBF at 40°C: 400,000h
Noise Level: 0.4 Sone


According to Arctic Cooling the cooler is compatible to all ATI Radeon X1800 XL, XT & CrossFire cards and also to the future X1900 Series.


Yay! A package which can be opened without a knife (= reviewer doesn't accidentally kill himself) and it can be closed again, which doesn't make it look as ugly when selling the cooler after a while.

Box contents:
  • VGA cooler with preapplied thermal paste
  • Screw package
  • Arctic Cooling sticker
  • Instruction manual

A small plastic cap makes sure that the thermal paste application is not damaged during shipping. The cap feels very strong and is also well attached. Two pieces of sticky tape hold the cap in place, it took me quite a bit of force to get it off.
