Here at Driver Heaven we have been fans of Arctic Cooling for quite some time. Over many years they have developed a range of high performance coolers for CPU’s and GPU’s which helped us achieve lower noise levels as well as temperatures. Their cases, PSU’s and thermal compound are also very impressive and at the time of writing there is nothing available which can beat their latest paste, the MX-3.
Due to the positive experiences we have had with Arctic Cooling products in the past we always look forward to their latest releases and today we have three such items on our review bench. For AMD CPUs there is the Alpine 64 Pro, mainstream GPUs get the Accelero L2 Pro and the GTX 260/275/280 get their own version of the Accelero (Xtreme GTX280).
Let’s see if these new products can live up to Arctic Cooling’s high standards.
Many devices support SD cards for storage and as a result there is a massive amount of models on the market. Many of them claim enhanced durability and fast speeds but not all will deliver. Today we take the latest USH-I class cards from 3 major brands for a spin to see how they stack up. Especially useful if you have a recent DSLR which can take advantage of modern cards.
