Conclusion

It is such a pity that they overlooked the VRM cooling issue. Otherwise, Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 could be an ideal solution for GeForce GTX 280/260 graphics cards. Impressive efficiency advantage over the reference cooler in GPU and ambient temperature at a significantly lower level of generated noise make Arctic Cooling product a very attractive choice. At the same time, inefficient VRM heatsink plate puts a fat question mark at the end of this sentence. Therefore, we would strongly advise that all potential Accelero Xtreme GTX 280 owners should take care of the VRM cooling on their own and keep in mind that the new Arctic Cooling solution is incompatible with SLI configurations and removes only part of the hot airflow outside the system case. Other than that, it is an excellent solution.
