The Accelero Xtreme III offers superior cooling performance in silence for the fastest single GPU and a wide-range of graphic cards. With its superior performance, this cooler definitely satisfies all overclockers and enthusiasts who enjoy powerful graphic cards.

  • newegg Superior Cooling Performance Featuring three 92mm PWM fans with a maximum cooling capacity up to 300 Watts, the Accelero Xtreme III manages to transfer heat efficiently away from the GPU. Besides the 84-fin heatsink with 5 copper heatpipes, the pre-applied MX-4 thermal compound accelerates the heat dissipation process to ensure the VGA board is running under optimal temperature.
  • newegg Enhanced RAM and VR Cooling The Accelero Xtreme III comes with 31 RAM and VR heatsinks to cool your RAM and VR. This included thermal adhesive lowers RAM and VR temperature significantly and assures proper bond.
  • newegg Virtually-Silent With three PWM-controlled 92 mm fans, the Accelero Xtreme III cools efficiently and silently. Thanks to the PWM control, the fan spins according to the temperature of the GPU. This means that the fans just spin up if necessary and will rest at minimum speed otherwise. PWM settings can be modified to fix the priorities between performance and noise.
  • newegg Multi-Compatible Aside from it being CrossFire and SLI compatible, the Accelero Xtreme III comes with a versatile and interchangeable mounting mechanism along with 31 RAM and VR heatsinks to fit different models. New accessory sets will be available to make the VGA cooler compatible with future models.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works great

Pros: It keeps aging card (Sapphire 5870 2gb Eyefinity 6) cool under full load.
Moves a lot of air quietly.
Was able to install with original backplate.

Cons: Instructions are very vague. Had to google, bing & youtube the instructions. The instructions on the web-site are the exact same ones that came with cooler. Emailing the manufacture was pointless. They were just as vague as the printed instructions.

I am not sure I will be able to triple crossfire with this cooler. It takes up essentially 3 slots.

Other Thoughts: I used this cooler on a aging video card (Sapphire 5870 eyefinty 6). The Accelero Extreme 3 thermal paste comes pre-applied in a square pattern. The Sapphire 5870 2gb eyefinity 6 GPU is set in a diamond pattern. I had to wipe clean the pre-applied thermal paste and re-paste using Arctic Cooling MX4. I tried using Ceramique 2 by Arctic Silver but the MX4 proved to be better.

For me the thermal paste was far easier to work with and stronger (bonding) than the epoxy like substance that comes with acceleros other coolers.

I have a rig that is currently running 2 Sapphire 7970 6gb Ghz Vapor X Edition video cards. I plan on buying 2 of Acceleros 7970 coolers for when those cards start hitting high temps.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Cool.... get it? huh? Cool!?

Pros: Runs very quiet.... currently reading at idle temps of 29 degrees Celsius, under load it hits about 50 degrees Celsius

Cons: Each model graphics card has its own caveats when installing

Other Thoughts: Other than that, quiet as hell and HUGE... unless you're running an extended ATX you might be only able to run dual sli

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet Tornado

Pros: This thing is ENORMOUS and cools the R9 290X like no other. the card idles at approx. 45C and never goes over 60C, which is about 35C lower than the max temps I was seeing with the stock cooler with the fan @ ~70% or so.

Cons: this card doesnt fit in my case entirely. It WORKS, but i have a bitfenix prodigy mini ITX, and in order for it to work, i leave the sode door off. This makes the card stick out and gathers more dust, but it runs so cool that I cant complain.

the RAM SINKS SUCK! They dont stay on and I had to get extra ones for the 290X to work with this from my local newegg. they are now held on by arctic cooling thermal adhesive instead of the inadequate 3M tape, and all is well.

The mounting solution for the heatsink is abysmal... The thing needs to be help on while trying to hold the card still, and screw in the tiny screws, while making sure the spacers dont move... it was liek playing twister with my hands and it was pretty terrible.

Other Thoughts: If you want to cool your 290X with the lowest possible temps on air, get this cooler... just be prepared for some finger yoga!

Believe me, I work in IT for a living, and deal with hardware ALL DAY and it still took me 2 HOURS to get this thing onto my card. it was THAT annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsIce cold!

Pros: Attached this bad bear to a GTX 480, which, if anyone knows the card, is built to run ridiculously hot. Before install, Batllefield 4 brought GPU load temps to about 91 degrees celsius. After the install, the HIGHEST I've seen is 61 degrees celsius, with avg load being around 50-55. Idle temps dropped from about 55-60 (before install) to 35-40 (after install).

Performance is significantly better. My last gen (or three generation old) graphics card is now able to crank out Battlefield 4 on Medium settings, 1080p, while Fraps'ing at over 60 fps.

Cons: Difficult to install for someone who hasn't done this sort of install yet. I've built multiple desktops but this was much more finnicky. Worth it though, definitely worth it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible temperatures

Pros: None

Cons: Horrible instructions.
Temps that hit over 100C in a few seconds when I do anything that requires GPU.
I've checked and rechecked the seating of the heatsink. The thermal paste has spread perfect over the heatsink and gpu so I know it's making contact.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Knocked 20C off of my Radeon 7870. A good product.

Cons: Not too easy to install but if you are tech savvy you will get it.

Other Thoughts: Expensive but worth it if you don't burn up a 700.00 video card.

5 out of 5 eggsCooled my titan successfully Wooooow

Pros: The box contains everything you need except for thermal cleaner.
Cooled my GTX Titan from 83 C° on stock to 60 C° overclocked up to 1100 MHz.
Very quite, I can't hear it at all.

Cons: For me there is non but they should give more details and steps in their installation guide.

5 out of 5 eggsBest solution

Pros: Comes with everything you need (XFX R9 290)
Superior cooling, dropped to ~28-30C idle and ~50C-55C under full load vs. 95C max load and 60C+ idle

Cons: No clear instructions for what your doing. I literally couldn't find any videos on it either, except one that was all in german, but luckily I was able to follow along visually and still complete it properly lol. I will be making a video on this soon..

Other Thoughts: Extremely good cooling, worth it especially if you have reference cards. Very quiet as well. I haven't seen the fan speed go past %40 either to achieve the cooling stated.
