ARCTIC have announced two new Graphics Card Coolers to their popular Accelero range. First up is the Accelero S1 PLUS, a passive solution compatible with a wide range of VGA cards from both nVidia and AMD and suitable for high-performance cards when coupled with the S1 PLUS Turbo Module for additional air flow.


ARCTIC is pleased to unveil its Accelero S1 PLUS which may be the best performing passive VGA cooler on the planet – with a wide range of compatibilities. The noise from a typical VGA cooler can be very annoying but the Accelero S1 PLUS allows you to enjoy uninterrupted brainstorming at work and maximum enjoyment in gaming.

Equipped with four heatpipes, the Accelero S1 PLUS can conduct the heat efficiently from the graphic card to the fins. Thanks to patent DE 20200600, the Accelero S1 PLUS allows more air to pass through the fins than any other passive coolers. The heat from the VGA card can efficiently disperse, which helps to maintain a high cooling capacity during operation.

The Accelero S1 PLUS is applicable on low and high-end graphic cards. Its additional heatsink set cools the RAM and circuit components surrounding the GPU. The thermal glue G-1 and pre-applied thermal compound MX-4 help deliver excellent thermal conductivity on RAM and GPU, respectively. It is even possible to boost up the cooling performance of the Accelero S1 PLUS up to 130 Watts by pairing it with the S1 PLUS Turbo Module (an add-on 120mm fan).

The Accelero S1 PLUS is a must-have cooler for all silence enthusiasts, it comes with a six-year limited warranty and MSRP at $ 49.95 USD and € 37.65 EUR, excl. VAT.

Second on the list is the Accelero Twin Turbo 6990. As the name suggests, this is a variant of the Accelero Twin Turbo which has been specifically engineered to deal with the huge cooling requirements of the AMD 6990 (reference model). As the noise of the reference cooler on the dual-GPU AMD 6990 is one of the few weak points of the card, an effective 3rd party solution is a great option.


The Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 is the most powerful VGA cooler ever. There is no reason to suffer from the stock cooler’s enormous noise level any longer since the Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 offers superior cooling performance at a fraction of the loudness – a perfect solution for overclockers as well as silent enthusiasts.

The Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 is equipped with two 120 mm PWM fans with a cooling capacity of 400 Watts which operates from 400 RPM to 1,500 RPM. In order to achieve this, it has a built-in 86 aluminum fins heatsink with 10 copper heatpipes. The GPU temperature of using Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 is lower than that of a stock cooler – extending the service life of your valuable VGA card.

Despite the use of two 120 mm PWM fans, the Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 uses a low-noise impeller and patented fan holder to improve the airflow for reducing its noise level to a impressive minimum of only 0.4 Sone. This allows enthusiasts and overclockers to enjoy a virtually silent environment.

The Accelero Twin Turbo 6990 comes with a six-year limited warranty with MSRP at $ 149.95 USD/ €113.03 EUR, excl. VAT.
