This is a method that all high-end ATi and NVIDIA reference cooling solutions use. However, like other after-market parts from Zalman and Thermalright, this Arctic-Cooling product leaves the hot air in the case. Surprisingly, just like the Zalman and Thermalright coolers, this Arctic-Cooling solution does not appear to produce all that much heat. Theoretically, despite what is being used the GPU will output exactly the same amount of heat. However, an inefficient cooler will trap a lot more heat creating an oven like effect. Given this is not an issue with the Accelero X1, the air being pushed over the fins never really gets that hot.
