Compact 120 mm Fan Graphics Card Cooler with Ultimate Compatibility and Near Silence
"The Accelero Mono PLUS is very compact and in any case guarantees excellent temperatures and very low noise."


"A downright top product!"
"Ultra-quiet performance..."
Superior Cooling Performance
5 copper heatpipes and the pre-applied MX-4 thermal compound conduct the heat from the GPU efficiently to the 43-fin heatsink whereas the 120 mm PWM fan creates an immense airflow to achieve unparallelled cooling performance even for overclocking. Tested by Hardwareoverclock, the temperature of the GPU on a Zotac GTX 560 Ti dropped drastically by 42 degrees.

Ultra Quiet

The Accelero Mono PLUS cools very efficiently due to an ultra-quiet 120mm PWM fan. Xtreme Hardware tested the Accelero Mono PLUS and it was 29 dBA quieter compared to the stock cooler under full load.

Thanks to the PWM control, the speed of both fans adjusts according to the temperature of the GPU and thus the noise level remains at an absolute minimum which qualifies it as a silent cooler.

"Perfect candidate for medium to high end models."
Reference cooler (66%) 92.5 C, 51.3 dBA
Mono Plus (50%): 63 C, 35.8 dBA
Mono Plus (100%): 60 C, 39.8 dBA
Powerful, quiet, fairly cheap, and installation is a breeze. A perfect candidate for medium to high end models.
"Not only did the Accelero Mono Plus wipe out the Vapor-X, it did so very quietly. When the fan speed was set to auto, you have to get your ear right up next to it in order to even hear it. When set to 100% fan speed, it's still almost inaudible. When compared to the Vapor-X, the noise difference is quite substantial. The... [more]

"A real mammoth in terms of performance"
The Accelero Mono PLUS is very quiet even at load! With 22 degrees lower than the stock cooler at load, it was able to maintain the VGA board in a very cool temperature. We would like to give this cooler our Silver award.

"The results of Mono Plus are actually quite impressive. The 4870 only ran about 52 degrees Celsius after running FurMark at 1920 x 1080 pixels. Better yet, the fan is virtually silent, with no loud whirring what so ever. If you're looking for an effective and quiet VGA cooling solution, the Accelero Mono Plus by ARCTIC is your... [more]

The cooling performance was to our complete satisfaction. After all, we could lower the temperature on average between 18C and 23C. Even the low noise level is greatly benefited. The full speed of about 1700 RPM was still 80% lower than the noise level with the stock cooler.

The Mono Plus has significantly decreased the temperature by 30%, from 78 C down to 55 C. Under overclocking, it cools the temperature from 92 C to 60 C (a 32 C difference). Still, it offers a quiet operation with efficient cooling performance.

Excellent performance and highly affordable price. It is super quiet even with the 12v, where you could not really hear it unless you got your head down to your computer. Easy to install, and has a great design.

FAQ

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

The Accelero Mono Plus 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).

Fan speed irregularities on Nvidia graphics cards

Nvidia graphics cards with their latest drivers may be misinterpreting the fan speed of our coolers and thus the reporting through software is wrong. Further Nvidia is no longer controlling the fan speed depending on PWM values based on the GPU temperature. E.g. if you set 30% PWM, Nvidia translates it into 1050 RPM. Independent whether you run a 40 mm (10,000 RPM max) or a 140 mm (1,500 RPM max) fan and independent of their maximum fan speeds, Nvidia will drive both at exactly 1050 RPM.

Nvidia's inability interpreting the fan speed signal might make the graphics card's controller spin the fan up and down. AMD boards control the fan speed consequently according to the GPU temperature and thus this cannot happen. With a fan controller software like Precision X this issue is controllable in the best way. There is to be aware that the percentages are not corresponding to PWM values but to fix fan speeds set by Nvidia. We recommend you to follow our suggested control curve precisely.

How to use the 4-pin adapter?

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.
