Arctic released a new VGA cooler, the Accelero Mono PLUS. This cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 200W, and maintains a compact fin-stack design, unlike the monolitic heatsink design of the Accelero L2 series. Measuring 136 (L) x 138 (W) x 51 (H) mm, its main heatsink weighs 348 g. From an exposed-copper base (with pre-applied adhesive thermal compound) arise five 6 mm thick copper heat pipes, that fan out to pass through an aluminum fin stack. This stack is ventilated by a 120 mm PWM-controlled fan that can spin at speeds between 400 and 1500 RPM. It can be as quiet as 0.4 Sone.
The package includes smaller heatsinks for memory chips and VRM, and a sachet of G-1 thermal adhesive compound. The package also includes a resistor cable that connects the cooler to a 4-pin Molex connector, and gives out two voltage levels: 12V and 7V, running the fan at its maximum and minimum speeds. The cooler is compatible with a wide range of graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD, including AMD Radeon HD 6970/6950, and NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti. Sadly, GF110/GF100-based single-GPU graphics cards such as GTX 470, GTX 465, GTX 480, GTX 570, GTX 580, are not supported. The Accelero Mono PLUS is priced at US $59.99.
