ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 Cooler Review

Rating: 9.0.

If you are fortunate enough to have bought a new AMD graphics card, then today’s review will be of particular interest. Arctic have just released a cooling solution which is compatible with the new range of AMD graphics cards, including the latest award winning HD7970 and HD7950. The idea is simple – replace your cooler and benefit from reduced noise and temperatures.

AMD have worked hard to enhance their reference cooling solution, and while their latest coolers for the HD7970 and HD7950 are a noted improvement, they still lag behind third party solutions from companies such as XFX and Sapphire.

The ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 should be a further step up from even these cooling solutions, offering the best performance available on the market.
