ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid GPU Water Cooler Review
Water Cool Your GPU
A couple years ago Corsair came to CPU cooling market with the Corsair Hydro H50 all in one CPU water cooler, which provided computer enthusiasts with a way to easily install a water cooling system without the knowledge, hazards, difficulties, and costs of building a fully custom water cooling setup. Because of its ease of use and its relatively good performance, several years later Corsair along with a multitude of companies introduced a variety of these all-in-one water coolers. Now, the market for these products seem to be expanding at an exponential rate.
While the CPU cooling market is currently saturated with companies trying to get into the closed loop water cooling market, the GPU cooling market is quite empty when it comes to this type of cooler… until now. Today, we’ll be reviewing one of ARCTIC’s newest GPU coolers, the ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid. You may be asking yourself “Why is it called a hybrid?” Well, the answer is simple. It’s not actually a full blown water cooler as it still relies on airflow to cool your memory and VRMs; however, the GPU core itself is cooled with an all in one water cooling loop so it’s still “water cooled”.
