Arctic Accelero S1 Plus Passive Cooler Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we are looking at a GPU cooler from Arctic. We recently looked at their Accelero Xtreme 7970 which is an extremely impressive solution. The cooler we are focusing our attention on today is the Accelero S1 Plus.  The S1 Plus is a passive cooling solution that is compatible with a large number of mid range graphics cards available today. We will be testing the Accelero S1 Plus on a low profile Sapphire 6670 graphics card.

The Accelero S1 Plus is the latest revision in the Accelero Passive category.  Arctic have had great success with this style and continue to tweak the design over time, bringing us to where we are today. The Accelero S1 plus consists of 4 x 6mm heatpipes and 32 aluminum fins to dissipate heat.  This time around Arctic has opted to not use thermal tape on their heatsinks. They supply two separate compounds that require mixing, which make a thermal adhesive.

    That’s not at all. Never thought passive cooling is better than the stock cooler by 10c. great review!
