2-in-1 Air & Liquid Cooling Solution
for AMD's First 28nm GPUs
"Compared against the reference cooler, the Accelero Hybrid drops load temperatures by a whopping 30-33°C. The Accelero Hybrid is currently the best solution you can buy for your graphics card."
"At 1.175V we could overclock the card to 1288 MHz and even then the temperature remained below 55°C!"
"The Accelero Hybrid shows its potential best under load. With 50°C it offers not just great cooling performance but also high overclocking potential given by the very low temperatures."

+Compatible to all current high-end graphics cards
"The ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid really did bring a huge decrease in temperature to our GTX660 card (comparing with MSI Twin Frozr II). The idle temperature almost halved (39°C vs. 23°C), and the load temperature also decreased significantly (70°C vs. 43°C). Additionally, the cooler is extraordinarily quiet, and we cannot hear it over the rest of our system noise."
Unmatched Cooling Perfomance
The Accelero Hybrid features a 120 mm PWM fan, a powerful heat exchanger and the award-winning MX-4 thermal compound to deliever unmatched cooling performance at all circumstances including gaming and overclocking.

Tested by TweakTown, it lowered the GPU load temperature by 34 degrees further compared to the stock cooler.

Tested by Hardwareluxx, the Accelero Hybrid is hardly audible even under load. Thanks to the PWM control, all fans' speed will adjust according to the temperature of the GPU and thus the noise level always remains at absolutely minimal.

"Accelero Hybrid is just outstanding"
"The ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid is just outstanding. At the maximum speed of the radiator's 120mm fan (1350 RPM), the peak temperature of the GK104 chip overclocked to 1212/1277 MHz was only 45°C. That's 15°C better than the performance of the DirectCU II at the maximum speed of its two fans (3390 RPM). We can also note that in the automatic regulation mode of the 120 mm fan (440 to 820 RPM according to our monitoring tools), the GPU is no hotter than 60°C, which is still better than the best the DirectCU II can do!"

Hissing or Bubbling noiseread

Your Accelero Hybrid is filled with water, some air bubble are present in the circuit to allow it to work properly. During transportation, air bubble might find their way to the water pump and while functioning create hissing or bubbling noise. These noise will disappear quickly as the air bubbles are pushed to the radiator part.

When installing the Accelero Hybrid, make sure that the radiator is located higher than the water pump. If any Hissing or bubbling noise, it will quickly disappear after running the cooler for few minutes .

If your configuration requires to have the radiator located below the water pump, you need to ensure that the tubing part of the radiator is located at the bottom while installed . Hissing or Bubbling noise will take longer to disappear than if the radiator is above the card but will ultimately disappear. You can help the process by placing temporarily the radiator above the water pump and run the cooler until the noise disappears .

Compatibility with AMD R9-280(X), 7970 and 7950read

The Accelero Hybrid 7970 is compatible to the above mentioned boards if the GPU was manufactured after February 2013. Please put a ruler on top of the GPU and check whether there is a gap between the ruler and the GPU. If there is a gap, the GPU was manufactured before February 2013. In this case please use the Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X).

How to use the 4-pin adapter?read

Under what conditions do you need a 4-pin adapter?

Your graphics card

1. is using a non-standard cooler socket (e.g. 5-pin, flipped polarity) or
2. is using a passive cooler as the stock cooler

How to connect the 4-pin adapter?

The differences between 7V and 12V socket*

7V: Moderate fan speed. It gives the best balance between cooling performance and noise level. It is recommended for normal usage.
12V: Full fan speed depending on the fan design. It gives the best cooling performance and it is recommended for high duty usage.

*The fan speed is fixed regardless of the GPU's condition.

Steps

1. Ensure your PSU has spare power source and plug in the 4-pin adapter.

2. Connect your ARCTIC graphics card cooler's power plug to the preferred socket.

Please note: Make sure the connector is plugged into the corresponding socket (i.e. A 3-pin plug should be connected to a 3-pin socket and a 4-pin plug should be connected to a 4-pin socket). If the plug is connected to the wrong socket, the motor will burn immediately due to incorrect polarity.
