Arctic Cooling Accelero S2 - Passive Graphics Cooler

Test Results

Test Results

Here are the results of my testing on the Arctic Cooling Accelero S2 vs the very slightly modified stock cooler:

Idle Temperature (°C)
Load Temperature (°C)
Stock Cooler
45 58
Arctic Cooling Accelero S2
37 47

These are some pretty impressive numbers for the Arctic Cooing Accelero S2. 8°C cooler at idle and 11°C cooler at load is awesome.

What you also have to consider is that the S2 is a totally passive solution, albeit your case airflow has to be decent to achieve a good result.


Usually I would tell you about my thoughts on noise but there is little to say other than there is no noise from this cooler - totally passive.

In the future I will have sound testing equipment to test out more coolers, but I don't think this is necessary here!

Awesome Review

And WOW, 37C using an entirely passive cooler? That's pretty damn nice!

How heavy is that thing btw? I looks like it would put a lot of stress on the card.Quote

Jeeze thats big. You rekon it could cope with the load of an 8800 though kemp? Maybe if you added a fan?Quote

Well the S1 has 4 heatpipes and an add-in fan module so i would guess you'd be ok.Quote
