With the Accelero S3 comes a passive graphics card cooler which can cope with demanding cards! The new silent champion further improves the outstanding results of its predecessor S1 PLUS.
Thanks to its patented heatsink design, the Accelero S3 is capable to cool even graphics cards of the calibre of an R7-260X or a GTX 660 entirely passive. Equipped with an add-on fan, the cooling capacity of the Accelero S3 can be upgraded even to 200 Watts.
For previously unknown VRM and RAM cooling performance, ARCTIC has developed and patented a back side cooler. This not only keeps the board and all components around the GPU on low temperature, but also offers significant advantages during installation. Up to now the attaching of different cooling elements with thermal glue was necessary. Thanks to the innovative back side plate this is a thing of the past. Without any thermal glue the graphics card can be returned to its original condition any time without leaving marks or residues.
Silence enthusiasts will definitely love the Accelero S3. As a passive cooler, it is completely noise-free while keeping the graphics card working under reasonable temperature.

Arctic Cooling debuts the Accelero S3, a new VGA cooler that promises to cool even "demanding boards" completely passively. Oddly enough, Arctic's definition from a demanding board seems quite different than ours as the company says cards of the calibre of an R7-260X or a GTX 660 can be cooled entirely passive. If you need more cooling power you can add a fan to upgrade the cooling performance to up to 200W. The Accelero S3 is sold in the UK for £34.99.
