Default Arctic Cooling Launches Accelero TWIN TURBO GPU Cooler

Arctic Cooling has just launched the Accelero TWIN TURBO GPU Cooler, which is compatible with a wide range of graphics cards, including the new Radeon HD 4800 series.
(Pfäffikon/Switzerland, 2 July 2008) The Swiss cooling solutions provider ARCTIC COOLING today announced the launch of the dual-fan Accelero TWIN TURBO, adding another multicompatible high performance merchandise into their reputable VGA cooler product line.

Unmatched Cooling Performance

Featuring 4 heat pipes, 30 fins and 2 PWM fans, the Accelero TWIN TURBO optimises airflow to 40 CFM, and achieves up to 120 Watt cooling capacity. Together with memory and voltage regulator cooling, this new VGA cooler gives enthusiasts a very promising result – 34°C lower than the nVIDIA GeForce 9600GT stock cooler. With such phenomenal cooling performance, the Accelero TWIN TURBO also maximizes the overclocking potential and extends the service life of your graphics card.

The Art of Silence

Low noise impeller and patented fan holder are equipped in the two 80mm PWM fans. This unique design reduces the
humming sounds significantly and brings the noise level down to 0.2 sone, compared with 1.2 sone of noise generated from
the stock cooler.

Flexible Mounting System

The universal design for the Accelero Twin Turbo supports the hottest graphics cards in the market, from nVIDIA GeForce 9600GT to ATI Radeon HD4870, 4850 and many more! It also comes with 2 fan plugs for direct power connection to the VGA card and thus the fans can be controlled by the VGA software. Same as other ARCTIC COOLING products, the Accelero TWIN TURBO offers a 6-year limited warranty. The Accelero TWIN TURBO is available in July 2008. The MSRP is US$34.95 and 22.95€ (excl VAT).

If this cooler works as well as my current passive AC Accelero, then I would consider it to be a standard addition for me as far as air cooling goes with any GPU. Might get those 4870s in crossfire yet.

Sorry, but this looks a lot like the Coolink GPUChilla cooler - just a fancier plastic bezel which will likely increase the price...

It's more an upgrade from their excelent Accelero S1 than a copy of the GPUChilla and the Arctic Coolling should be more efficient wich will explain the thin price increase.

For around 35$ and knowing the results SKYMTL got with the Accelero S1 in it's HD4850 review, I think it will be a really great cooler upgrade for the new HD48XX series.

Yup it sure looks like a good upgrade, hopefully that pic shown is what it is, the fans are integrated on the cooler, hence unlike the accelero S1 which you need to buy a seperate turbo fan or add one of your own fan on the cooler, this should have 2 of them already on it.

Is it me, or this does look somewhat similar to the 9800 series one.

Up to 120W cooling capacity? While not all of the drawn power is actually used in the core, that's not even what the card pulls at stock, nevermind the effect of any overclocking. Not sure what to think about that number.

But does this cooler come with heatsinks for those hot voltage regulators on the 4850 and 4870? I'm very interested to replace the stock cooler on both of my 4850 cards!
