ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid Review (with Nvidia GTX680)

The ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid ships in a plain white box with a high resolution image taking centerstage on the front of the box.

Inside the packaging, the bundle is extensive. There are 31 separate heatsinks to cover the installation on various graphics cards.


Heatsink 31 pcs
Screw (M2) 4 pcs
Washer 4 pcs
Spacer (2.5 mm) 4 pcs
Spacer (3.5 mm) 4 pcs
Spacer (4.5 mm) 4 pcs
Adhesive Tape 2 pcs
Insulation Tape 5 pcs
Thermal Pads 3 pcs
EVA Foam 1 pc
GPU Back Plate 1 pc
Thermal Adhesives (3 g) 1 pc
VGA Bracket 1 pc
4-Pin Fan Power Adapter 1 pc

The main shroud for the video card is made from plastic with the name of the product highlighted on the front. ARCTIC have installed an 80mm white fan underneath which is designed to cool the PCB components, such as the VRM’s and memory heatsinks, which we will install later in the review. This fan only pushes 13.1 cfm, controlled by PWM to spin between 900 rpm and 2,000 rpm.

The radiator and pump are enclosed and our unit arrived in good condition from the Far East. Occasionally we have seen some minor surface damage to the radiator fins during transport but ARCTIC are using very heavy duty packaging to reduce the chances of this happening.

We have also no concerns with the engineering quality of the Accelero Hybrid. The pump and radiator are all well finished, and the seals held in place during transit across the world. The copper cold plate is also flawless, finished to a fine, smooth base. The tubes are 416mm in length.

The radiator cooling fan is a fluid dynamic bearing 120mm unit,  rated to operate between 400 rpm and 1,350 rpm. It is PWM controlled, with 74 CFM airflow.
