Introduction

Today’s high demanding games can cause serious heat issues with improperly cooled graphic cards, so what do we do when they start to overheat? Look into water cooling? Not if your graphics card uses a non-referenced PCB. I’m in that boat; I picked up a few video cards without realizing they were non-referenced. The question is, what other options do we have in order to better cool the GPU and memory? Arctic has came up with a solution with the Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X), which is an upgraded air cooling solution that cools the GPU and memory utilizing 5 heatpipes and a custom rear heatsink. Intro First, here’s a word from the company:

We put global options to good use in making a lasting impression in the markets we service. Our products not only meet the needs of our customers, they actually exceed their expectations. ARCTIC is committed to supporting and helping their customers in their daily lives, giving them more opportunities, and maintaining sincere and direct contact to them. We aim to establish ourselves as innovators in our new product areas to the same extent that we already are in our PC cooler business, and to achieve the same high levels of market penetration and popularity.
