Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME 5970 VGA Cooler Review
The Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME 5970 proves to be many times quieter and much more effective than the reference cooling system of the dual-processor ATI Radeon HD 5970 graphics card. The Accelero XTREME 5970 is not taken aback by the card's extremely high heat dissipation even at overclocked frequencies.
However, the Swiss product is not without downsides, the most important of which is the tall VRM heatsink. The main heatsink presses against the latter and bends the cardís PCB as the result. We also think that instead of applying a generous amount of Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal grease on the cooler, the manufacturer should provide it in a tube so that the user could apply it himself as necessary. The recommended price of $76.95 is higher in comparison with the Accelero XTREME 4870 X2, which can hardly please potential buyers, either. And finally, this cooler should be used in a well-ventilated system case because otherwise most of the hot air from it will remain inside, frying up the rest of the computer components.
