The Accelero S1 PLUS may be the best performing passive VGA cooler on the planet. It is a must-have cooler for all silence enthusiasts. The versatile RAM and VR cooling set and optional S1 PLUS Turbo Module further extends its compatibilities all the way to high-end VGA cards.

  • newegg Absolute Silence As a passive cooler, the Accelero S1 PLUS is noise-free while keeping the graphic card working at normal temperature! It helps to cool your graphic card without any disturbance to your work or entertainment.
  • newegg Wide Compatibility* Due to its RAM and VR heatsink set and flexible mounting plate design, the Accelero S1 PLUS is compatible with over 80 different models of midrange to high-end graphic cards. (*The compatibility list is based on AMD Radeon and NVIDIA's reference board layout only.).
  • newegg Efficient Passive Cooling Thanks to the passive cooling technology, the Accelero S1 PLUS allows more air to pass through the fins than any other passive coolers. The heat from the VGA card can be efficiently dispersed. With the add-on fan S1 PLUS Turbo Module equipped, the cooling capacity of the Accelero S1 PLUS can be boosted up to 120 Watts, which is adequate to cool some high-end VGA cards including AMD Radeon HD 6870 and NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250.
  • newegg Enhanced VR Heat Dissipation Compared to thermal tapes, the thermal glue G-1 included with this cooler significantly improves the efficiency of heat conduction from the RAM and VR to the heatsinks. It secures the heatsinks while enabling subsequent removal residue-free.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome coolercooler

Pros: Cools an XFX HD 5770 with a 120mm fan zip tied to it silently, all while maintaining temps below 55C.

Cons: Only con is that the monting holes are not clearly labeled, leading to test fits.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Fits my Radeon HD 7870, cools better than stock, less noise than stock.

Cons: If you have a narrow computer case, there may not be enough room for it. The heat pipe unit sticks out about an inch from the side of the video card. But for most people, this isn't an issue.

Other Thoughts: I used the Accelero S1 with a pair of Arctic Cooling 80mm PWM fans (purchased separately) to cool my Radeon HD 7870. Temperatures dropped by 10C degrees at idle, and 25C degrees at full load. Plus, it's quieter than the stock video cooler. That's what you call a win-win!

1 out of 5 eggsNOT for Heavy Duty Use

Pros: The pictures look cool. The idea is cool.

Cons: This product will not work for data mining rigs or crypto-currency mining rigs. Temps shoot up to 90C within 30 seconds!! Added fan does not help either. If you have a GPU that is overclocked, forget it. Also...the compatibility list is indide of the package!! (You learn after you buy). Link on the web site is dead. Will NOT fit Radeon 7970 or 7990

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to believe in this product and I hoped it would work for me... but it really bytes.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat product

Pros: This thing is great my temp on stock cooling was 82C load and 55C idle. Installed this and it never went above 50C load and idle at around 38C.

Cons: It is too big,I had to remove the plastic sleeve in order to fit n my case.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad that I got this, no more crashed and sudden reboot because the temp was too high. I also have a corsair 120mm under it to circulate the air.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Cooler if you also use fans

Pros: This cooler is fantastic at what it does. But the real hidden advantage is what it does if you put a slot fan or a normal fan on it. The area is 4-8x the typical heat sink area found on a typical video card. That means a single 5-7v fan can do the same job as a noisy OEM cooler. And in combination with full speed fans , overclocking is a snap.

Cons: The included heatsinks are junk. Buy a proper low-profile set. The sticky film-like adhesive on the included VRAM sinks is pop it off with your finger weak.

These are the heat sinks you want. You may have to use a Dremel on one or two near the rear of your card, though, due to clearance issues. Shaving down 1-2 fins is usually enough. Note - clean the vram first with alcohol first as the adhesive won't stick nearly as well without a clean surface.

Other Thoughts: - Remove the plastic shroud. Beware of the finger slicing capabilities of this thing. It cools noticeably better with the laywer-required plastic shroud removed.

- Get the Enzotech low profile heatsinks. I tested the OEM and the Enzotech and the copper ones cooled the VRAM down by at least 10C more. There's a reason nobody uses aluminum any more for CPU cooling.

- Put a slot fan two slots away, running at a low voltage. In my experience a single $10 slot fan is as effective as their fancy turbo module.
Buy this and set the voltage to 7V via a pin swap. $8 "turbo module".

5 out of 5 eggsworks very well on my 650ti

Pros: Able to cool my 650ti without any fan if I leave the computer case open.

This was a excellent buy for my completely silent gaming rig

Cons: I really need to leave my case open for this to work without any fans.

Not to much of a problem.

4 out of 5 eggsJust shut your mouth and keep cool

Pros: Solid performance even without turbo module (beats the pants off my card's obnoxious stock cooler even under full load), fairly straightforward installation, includes heatsinks for RAM and voltage regulators.

My EVGA GT440, with its stock cooler, idled at ~36C, and after fifteen minutes of FurMark's Burn-in Test, at default settings, hit a maximum of ~93C. The S1 Plus passive setup brought that down to ~33C and ~68C, respectively. Adding the Turbo Module, even at its low setting of 7V, improved the numbers to ~30C and ~51C (at 12V I measured the same numbers, even after double checking the connector; ambient temp was much lower, so I suspect that's just the limit of what my case's airflow can accomplish). I'm a man who appreciates curves in the right places, but this is one I'm glad to see flattened.

Cons: On my graphics card, the chipset is set toward the back, so the card doesn't balance on the copper base while you're attaching the screws. I needed one hand to steady the board itself while the other does the initial threading. Not the end of the world, but with the screws, spacers, and washers to worry about at the same time things were a little touchy.

I had to remove the plastic guard to fit this thing in on my ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 motherboard; the fins reach back over the IDE connectors, and it's a tight fit. Without the plastic the cables have a much easier time passing by. As for the case itself, mine is wide enough (just over seven inches from the motherboard tray to the inside of the opposite wall) that the guard wouldn't have hit the side panel, but others may not be so lucky.

The heatsink technically only eliminates one slot next to the card, but clearance is just about nonexistent, and I wouldn't feel comfortable for a second putting a card right next to the fins. If you really had to, maybe some electrical tape or other insulating material would help? I don't know electricity as well as I should, don't take my word for it.

Godawful, atrocious, all but worthless thermal epoxy; the squarish heatsinks had a nice amount of surface area to attach to on the memory chips, so those stuck, but the MOSFETs don't give enough to grab on to, even after an extra paranoid fifteen hour plus cure time. I like the idea of something I can remove and replace easily, but the execution here leaves something to be desired. At least the giant fin array will catch any of the small heatsinks when they inevitably work loose and fall off.

Other Thoughts: I got the turbo module as well, and with the extra airflow I felt comfortable simply getting rid of the heatsinks on everything but the RAM. After three months the card's still cranking away, no glitches, stop screens, lockups, or other funny business.

5 out of 5 eggsI'M HAPPY

Pros: Excellent cooling even without the recommended fan add on. Dropped my GPU temp from 80 degrees to 64 degrees on my Unigine GPU Benchmark test. It did fit in my midtower HAF912 case, but just barely. Obviously, this is a very quiet card. Ha! Ha!

Cons: Adds about an inch to my HD6850 card height and about an inch to its length. Didn't ship with retension springs, so I used my old ones from the stock cooler. You need to mix resin used for memory chip coolers (I didn't use the mem chip coolers) I didn't see any instructions on installing cooler, but I had done it before. If you use the add on fan, it will require 3 slots for the space.

Other Thoughts: I had been running a Zalman VF770 on the card but that cooler was not rated for my HD6850 so I was running hot most of the time. The Artic cooler does a great job but Company recommends the add on fan for my video card. I don't have it but running at 64 degrees I shouldn't need it. I didn't have any shut downs running at 80 degrees!

5 out of 5 eggsModded two MSI R7870 "Hawk" CrossfireX video cards

Pros: I converted two MSI R7870 video cards with two Arctic Accelero S1 Plus coolers and two S1 Turbo Module 120mm 1000rpm fans. The result was rewarded with stunning success. It averaged 5C lower than the stock coolers (twin frozr VGA Coolers). Plus they CrossfireX cards are virtually silent, and you have to place your ear within an inch to hear any noise! Thumbs to Arctic Cooling! The fans are so silent,.....I just leave them on now (running full blast).

Cons: I wish you would sell the fan mount pins seperately from the kit, so I could try out other types of cooling fans?

Other Thoughts: I was very surprised how well the passive modes performed under BOINC folding stress. The temperature was steady (very little waver in the chart), and it never spiked at all during higher temperatures. The Accelero heatsink convects very well while exposed to lots of heat! Thumbs up to Arctic Cooling! The 1000rpm quiet fan is terrific and whisper quiet. I'm very pleased with the passive mod kit by Arctic Cooling.

1 out of 5 eggslies

Pros: NONE site lies

Cons: The Vga cooler said it fits the 7770 and when I tried to fit it to my card it wasn't fitting looked a little saw a little thing on my card was hitting it so I cut the card a little trying to make it fit like that it didn't work and now ima try and return it because I bought it for my card and now I cant even use it the site said 7770 so that why I got it and it don't even fit

Other Thoughts: don't ever get this not worth messing up ur card for a vga cooler should be no cuts just plug in and play
