I agree that Arctic Cooling Accelero Hybrid is not pretty added to a card,
but it has a lot of charm as a cooling solution.
I saw one installed with the Accelero Hybrid radiator at the bottom of the case drawing in, and a separate CPU cooler at the back of the case drawing in. Interior air was being vented out of the top of the case.
In a modern system the only two components that really develop significant heat are the CPU and GPU, and if you can cool them both with a closed-loop liquid cooler then the thermal environment inside the case becomes a lot less important.
You can push a system almost as hard as you want then and it won't break a sweat, and interior temps will be managed easily with a few standard case fans.
It's only when one starts jacking the gear up way beyond it's rated specifications that this setup is going to reach it's limitations.
It's ugly, but the cooling performance is stellar and it's got some serious charm as part of a complete case interior thermal solution.
Buckle up. The new WRX STi is here.
