Introduction

The Arctic Accelero Xtreme III is a video card cooler with five heatpipes and three 92 mm fans. Let’s test it and compare it with some of the best VGA coolers we have tested so far.

As with most VGA coolers from Arctic, the box of the Accelero Xtreme III is actually a plastic blister that allows you to see the entire cooler, as shown in Figure 1.
