Brakes are to cars as coolers are to computers. They aren't the selling point of the product, but you sure miss them when they aren't working. When it comes to cooling solutions for computer components, there are always a number of features that they have in common. This includes copper metal for conductivity, fans for airflow, and aluminum fins to prevent it from weighing a ton. Of course, those are only the basics; it's the other features and variations that really determine the quality and effectiveness of the cooler. Arctic Cooling has provided the Accelero Extreme Plus II for us to review at APH Networks. Just like CPU coolers, the stock VGA coolers provided with most graphics cards are simply not acceptable for overclocking; in fact, it is barely acceptable for even normal usage sometimes. I'm sure everyone is familiar with the roaring fan of their graphics card while playing games. As I found with my own computer, the graphics card was by far the loudest component, and my computer case could not contain the sound of the infernal. The name Arctic Cooling Accelero XTREME Plus II is far too long to say out loud. Why can it not just simply be called the ACAXP2? I guess the only one who can really answer that question is Arctic Cooling themselves. Of course, the reason you are here, is to see if this mouthful of cooling can really make graphics card feel like it is being served on ice.
