Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 GPU Cooler Review

Rating: 8.0.

Many graphics card manufacturers now sell ‘hybrid' cards – cards which make use of a closed loop cooler as well as a traditional blower-style fan. Rather than shelling out the extra cash for one of those cards, however, Arctic think you should buy their Accelero Hybrid III-140 kit. It is designed to offer the same hybrid experience, but can cater to a much wider array of graphics cards.

In layman's terms, the Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 is essentially an AIO cooler, but for your graphics card. It uses a 140mm radiator to cool the GPU core, while it also provides a dedicated VRM heatsink and 80mm fan to provide active cooling for the VRMs and MOSFETs. While there are different models for different graphics cards, as well as a ‘generic' kit for those with cards which are not specifically supported, today's review is of the 980 Ti model, priced at around the £100 mark.




  • Radiator (no fan): 170 × 140 × 27 mm (L × W × H), weight: 649 g
  • Heatsink: 70 x 70 x 28 mm (L × W × H)
  • 140 mm fan: 140 x 140 x 25 mm (L × W × H), weight: 147 g
  • 80 mm fan: 80 x 80 x 15 mm (L × W × H), weight: 52.5 g
  • Backplate: 91 x 120 x 12 mm (L × W × H), weight: 125 g


  • Max. Cooling capacity: 300 Watt
  • Noise Level: 0.3 Sone (~ 22-23 dBA)
  • Connection: 4-Pin (pump), PWM (140s-fan)
  • Material: Aluminum (radiator), copper (Cold Plate), EPDM (hoses)
  • Compatibility: NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti, GTX 1070/1080, Titan X

  1. Great performance, but a shroud for the front would make it a lot more visually appealing.

  2. Good idea – I agree the visuals are a bit lacking

  3. Very nice results for sure with this cooler. It is to bad Nvidia gimped the cards bios so much it would be great to see those 2.5Ghz clocks they were talking about when they released the 10 series. I guess we won’t see that until someone manages to decrypt and unlock the Bios on the 10 series. But at this stage of the game if it hasn’t happened yet it most likely won’t because in a few months Nvidia will release the rebranded 20 series and no one will care about unlocking the 10 series anymore.

  5. This is really a great aftermarket hybrid cooler for reference graphics cards.

  6. This is a CLC (closed loop circuit), not an AIO. Please correct accordingly.

  7. Am I the only one concerned that the RAM on the front is not addressed by any heatsinks?

  8. The ram is cooled by the backplate. Which makes sense because the temps actually conduct through the pcb better than the plastic casing they are in.

  9. Same difference. With a few exceptions (basically swiftech and ekwb) all aio are clc’s

  10. I went ahead and added this beast to my 1080 FE and I so far I can’t get the GPU over 45 degrees c. Very nice. I added copper heatsinks to the front of RAM and touched them during 3dmark loop and they were very hot! Note that I do oc both GPU and memory. Glad I added the heatsinks
