Arctic has launched a new series of VGA coolers that feature a patented backside heatsink. The passive heatsink on the back is designed to cool memory and power delivery components of your video card for longer lifespan and more stable overclocking.
Arctic upcoming Accelero Xtreme IV GPU cooler has been unveiled on the Chiphell Forums. The Accelero Xtreme IV will be the successor to Arctic’s own highly successful Accelero Xtreme III which was launched two years ago.
Back in September Prolimatech released the MK-26 VGA Cooler, today they are announcing the MK-26 Black Series. This new cooler features matte black anodized aluminum fins, which are made to match Prolimatech’s own Black Megahalems and Black Genesis. The heatpipes still keep their chrome finish, which makes for a nice contrast. The MK-26 is a dual aluminum fin heatsink that features six copper heatpipes to transfer heat from the copper GPU block to the aluminum fins.
Today I will be looking at the SilenX iXtrema IXG-80HA2 VGA cooler. It has five heatpipes directly touching the GPU, a large fin array, and fits most single-GPU video cards built in the last couple of years. Though the cooler can be used passively in total silence, I will be adding SilenX’s optional fan kit, consisting of three quiet 80mm fans. The cooler looks like it should do a great job of cooling down a hot GPU, but will it make the trip? Read on to see!
