Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme 8800

Introduction

Arctic Cooling are without doubt the masters of cooling. They never fail to impress us with their products which always deliver fantastic performance but still manage to maintain a very low noise level. It is for this reason that every desktop and media system I own uses Arctic Cooling CPU coolers. Despite this, up until I began testing for this review the coolers I had on my graphics cards were either reference, Zalman or Thermalright, with the reasons being I needed flat out thermal performance or small, compact and noiseless solutions. For all of my uses Arctic Cooling did not have a GPU cooler which matched my exact needs. That is not to say their products are a disappointment, far from it, but they have tended to be slightly too big compared to the competition, the Accelero S1 compared to Zalman VNF-100 for example. In the case of high end Nvidia coolers there really was no option from Arctic Cooling, until now.

Today we are reviewing the Accelero Xtreme 8800 and it has a tough test ahead of it, can it match or exceed the Thermalright HR-03 Plus?
