ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, 3 Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, CrossFire
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None. This thing is a giant waste of time and money.

Cons: Extremely difficult to install. The thermal paste/glue doesn't work, even though I followed instructions to the letter, 2 heat sinks fell off during installation. The fans come with a plug designed to fit on the card, either 3 or 4 pin, great! EXCEPT, they are wired incorrectly. The fans never spin. Didn't realize it was miswired until after I took it apart.

Other Thoughts: Fortunately I am very careful about installs and noticed the fans weren't spinning right away; shut the system down before it bricked my $400 card. I have installed aftermarket heatsinks on video cards more than 20 times, and never had problems like this. I would give it zero eggs if I could. DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE.

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

2 out of 5 eggs Good Sound, bad construction 12/25/2013

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: Very good sound quality, very comfortable to wear.

Cons: Build is extremely poor. Bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for my son. His fell apart in a month and a half, mine took 10 months but still...

Other Thoughts: I usually am very pleased with Creative products, but these are not worthy of the name.

ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme III VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, 3 Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, SLI/CrossFire
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Had a deluxe cooler on my Radeon 6970, but was getting temp problems. This cooler dropped the idle temps 5 degrees and 14 degrees under full load from the original Sapphire cooler. Very impressed!

Cons: Installation SUCKS! I have changed many video coolers in the past, usually Zalman, and installation takes 20-25 minutes. This took nearly 2 hours and was extremely frustrating. The "instruction manual" is a joke. Tries to cover every possible installation so it covers none of them.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money and effort if you can get past the installation. Would definitely recommend this for Radeon 6970 owners.
