Arctic Cooling Turbo Module

The last graphics card cooling solution we are going to introduce to you today is not really a fully-fledged cooler. In fact, Arctic Cooling Turbo Module is a set of two fans that should be installed onto Accelero S1 or S2 passive cooling systems from Arctic Cooling, which we reviewed before. According to the manufacturer, the use of this Turbo Module allows dropping another 14ºC off the graphics processor temperature. Moreover, it doesn’t make the whole thing that much louder.

Package and Accessories

Arctic Cooling Turbo Module is shipped in a transparent plastic package with a carton insert:

 

The fan module comes with a brief user’s manual, Molex converter for the PSU and an Arctic Cooling logo sticker:

Design and Functionality

The fans are 80x15mm big and are connected with a short dual-pin sleeved cable:

The fans rotation speed is ~1500RPM and they generate 42CFM airflow at 0.1 Sone noise. From our subjective experience, Arctic Cooling Turbo Module works very quietly.

Installation Tips

The fans retention consists of a plugs and clips that fit in-between Accelero heatsink plates:

Arctic Cooling Turbo Module installed onto Accelero S1 looks as follows:

With a pair of fans, Accelero S1 blocks two mainboard slots next to the graphics card:

 

Arctic Cooling Turbo Module is priced at about $8-$10, and together with Accelero S1 the whole thing will cost you less than $40.
