About Artic Cooling

As an internationally active company, ARCTIC’s expertise ranges from noise suppression for PCs, audio, peripheral equipment and power supplies, right through to entertainment products. ARCTIC is the umbrella brand for the COOLING, SOUND, EQUIPMENT, POWER, HOBBY and Living product ranges.

ARCTIC is now a leading manufacturer of CPU coolers, GPU coolers and case fans. In recent years we acquired a far-ranging expertise in the field of consumer electronics. The company’s product range has been further enhanced by new lines unrelated to PC cooling which was the reason behind the 2010 change in our brand name and logo: ARCTIC COOLING became the ARCTIC brand umbrella.

The new Accelero Twin Turbo II is a universal VGA cooler compatible with several video cards from AMD and NVIDIA. It is an updated version of the Accelero Twin Turbo cooler, Artic has send us a sample to test, let’s check this baby out.

 Specifications and Features

The Accelero TWIN TURBO II is a dual-fan VGA cooler with enhanced multi-compatibility for present and future models. Designed to optimize performance and the overclocking capability of your system, the Accelero TWIN TURBO II is your ultimate cooler for mid-range to high-end graphic cards.
Excellent Cooling Performance

Featuring two 92mm PWM fans with a maximum cooling capacity up to 160 Watts, the Accelero TWIN TURBO II manages to transfer heat efficiently away from the GPU. Besides the 35-fin heatsink with 5 copper heatpipes, the pre-applied MX-4 thermal compound accelerates the heat dissipation process to ensure the VGA board is running under optimal temperature.

Enhanced RAM and VR Cooling

In order to boost the cooling efficiency of RAM and VR, the Accelero TWIN TURBO II comes with the G-1, an electrically non-conductive thermal glue used to affix RAM and VR heatsinks on the VGA board. Unlike generic thermal tapes, the G-1 offers high thermal conductivity with excellent adhesiveness. Moreover, removing the G-1 is extremely easy without leaving any residues.

Virtually Silent

Thanks to the low noise impeller and patented fan holder, the Accelero TWIN TURBO II runs at the minimum noise level of 0.3 sone, even at full load. Equipped with a PWM controller, the fan always runs at the optimal speed according to the load generated by the GPU.

Multi-Compatible*

The Accelero TWIN TURBO II comes with a versatile mounting mechanism and an extensive RAM and VR cooling set to accommodate a broad range of models. Featuring the CrossFire and SLI compatibility the users benefit from the optimized performance of a multi-VGA setup.

* The compatibility list is based on AMD Radeon and NVIDIA’s reference board layout only. ARCTIC holds no responsibility for incompatibility on non reference boards. Please check the height restriction drawing before purchase.
