CPU coolers are a dime a dozen. Go to any specialty computer shop and you’ll find a variety CPU coolers from tons of manufacturers. On the other hand, GPU coolers are actually quite rare, with the number of companies actively producing coolers in the single digits. One of these companies is ARCTIC, who’s one of the top producers of GPU coolers on the market.

ARCTIC Ltd.

Today we’re going to take a look at the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970. As the name implies, this GPU cooler is designed for AMD’s new flagship graphics card, the Radeon HD 7970; however, this will work for a number of other older AMD GPUs such as the 6970, 6950, 6870, 6850, etc.

So, will ARCTIC actually put your GPU in the ARCTIC? Let’s find out!

    Great review!  I have a Gigabyte 7970 and I’m not confident that this will really help out on lowering the temps.

       I meant to say “I’m now confident”.  Confusing typo.
