Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 and Turbo Module Graphics Card Cooler - Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 and Turbo Module Graphics Card Cooler

After all, the idea of computer component cooling is not just about performance. It's also about the amount of noise generation -- what this means is that there are people looking for the best performance regardless of all, while another group prefers quietness while retaining an adequate amount of heat dissipation. For those wanting their computer as quiet as possible (To an extent, I am one of them), it's about the process of elimination -- removing noise sources, one by one. How about using heatsinks only, without the fans? Now look at this: How about a relatively powerful graphics card with a passive heatsink? No, I am not dreaming -- or should I say, the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 is a passive graphics card cooler that makes our dream come true. The Accelero S1 is so good at heat dissipation that it relies solely on your case fans for airflow, so it does not need any fans by itself. On the other hand, since it's already so good without a dedicated fan, how about installing fans over it to make performance even better while sacrificing some silence? Today, we'll see how good the Accelero S1 really is, and how much the Turbo Module fan addon improves performance. We'll also examine the Turbo Module so to see if it will really sacrifice the silence.
