Together with the world’s first 28nm AMD 7900/7800 series GPUs, ARCTIC releases its Accelero Xtreme 7970 as the first and most powerful VGA cooler compatible with these AMD series. The immaculate performance of Accelero Xtreme 7970 undoubtedly surpasses that of stock coolers by having a cooling capacity of up to 300 Watts at a fraction of the noise level. Accelero Xtreme 7970 is definitely the perfect cooling solution for overheated GPUs that no overclockers or enthusiasts should miss.

The special mounting mechanism of Accelero Xtreme 7970 allows it to work with the latest models of AMD graphic cards. It is bundled with a comprehensive set of 31 VR and RAM heatsinks and thus cools of all the components surrounding virtually any GPU!

Accelero Xtreme 7970 leads with top performance within the VGA coolers in the market. Three 92mm PWM fans (with low-noise impellers and patented fan holder) come with five heatpipes and an 84-fin heatsink allow this cooler to operate in silence between 900 to 2,000 RPM at an irresistible cooling capacity of up to 300 Watts. It is also pre-applied with the MX-4 thermal compound which greatly enhances your GPU’s thermal conductivity.

 

The ARCTIC G-1 thermal glue is also used to affix the VR and RAM heatsinks to enhance the cooling of surrounding components. Compared to thermal tapes, the G-1 thermal glue gives you a more reliable and easily-removable adhesion without leaving any residues behind.

 

Accelero Xtreme 7970 comes with a six-year limited warranty with MSRP at 97.95 USD
