Arctic promises absolute silence with their new graphics card passive cooler, the Accelero S3

According to Arctic, thanks to its patented heatsink design, the Accelero S3 is capable to cool graphics cards of the caliber of an R7-260X or a GTX 660 entirely in passive mode. Equipped with an add-on fan, the cooling capacity of the Accelero S3 gets upgraded to 200 Watts.

To improve 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 need to keep an eye on the Accelero S3. As a passive cooler, it is completely noise-free while keeping the graphics card working under a reasonable temperature.
