Superior Cooling Performance
5 copper heatpipes and the MX-4 thermal compound (pre-applied) transfer heat from the GPU efficiently to the 84-fin heatsink and the three 92mm PWM fans create tremendous airflow to cool down the GPU temperature instantly, even when higher performance is required during overclocking. Reviewed by PC Games Hardware, the Accelero Xtreme 7970 reduced the GPU temperature on an AMD Radeon HD 7970 OC by 18 degrees.

The Accelero Xtreme 7970 cools your GPU quietly with three ultra-quiet PWM fans.

The test done by PC Games Hardware has shown that the Accelero Xtreme 7970 is 20 times quieter comparing with the stock cooler at full load.

Thanks to the PWM control, the fan speed adjusts according to the temperature of the GPU and thus the noise level remains at an absolute minimum. Click here to see how the PWM control settings can be changed according to your performance and noise preference.

"Absolute leader in acoustic performance"
"Accelero Xtreme 7970 generates no more than 45 dBA even with all three of its fans rotating at their maximum speed. It is an absolute leader acoustic performance among all VGA coolers"

"As far as the faster fan modes of the new Accelero Xtreme 7970 are concerned, even a very efficiency cooling system from MSI can't compete against the unbeatable ARCTIC product. The latter is still 2-7 C better than MSI Twin Frozr IV at its best."

"The Accelero Xtreme 7970 operates both quietly and coolly. Its fan headers plug right into the graphics card for convenience and control, and the combination effectively brings down temperatures even in the face of aggressive overclocking."

GPU temperatures up to 31C cooler at lower noise level than the stock cooler in IDLE!
Radeon 3D
"The Accelero Xtreme 7970 is much more efficient to cool the GPU Radeon HD 7970 compared to reference cooling system AMD (30C difference during load at 12V). Even at full load (Furmark), the fan speed does not increase much, the cooler remains silent at 7V(33.2 dBA)."
"Performance then, is excellent..."
"The ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 has impressive cooling pedigree when compared to the reference HD 7970 cooler. It manages to shave off an impressive 10 degree Celsius whilst remaining whisper quiet (when gaming), noticeably quieter than the reference HD 7970 cooler."
Accelero Xtreme 7970 is incredibly powerful and, despite using three fans it is very quiet. 7970 lowered the temparature by 16 degrees from stock cooler, very impressive.
PC Foster
"Overall, the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 is quiet and has very impressive cooling performance (when comparing with stock cooler at load, 68C vs. 91C and 34dBA vs. 46dBA).This has made it one of the best cooling options for many existing ATI graphics cards."
"ARCTIC has built a great cooler for Radeon 7970, for this type of performance you usually need to pay up to 5 times more. You pay less, and you barely notice it's presence with the low noise,which is great during gameplay."
"Probably the best after market heatsink "
The Accelero Xtreme 7970 is definitely the top cooler in the market. It was able to beat the stock cooler by 15 degrees during our test while remain virtually silent at all time. For anyone that is looking for high performance cooler, the Accelero Xtreme 7970 certainly fulfilled all you needs and wants.

"A monster of a cooler"
"ARCTIC Accelero Extreme 7970-a great choice for all Radeon HD 7-series and is recommended for all overclockers and those who is looking for absolute silence. Sure AX7970 is quite big and you'll need some time to get it on your card but for the price it's an excellent piece of hardware."
"To sum up: The Accelero Xtreme 7970 is capable to cool the HD 7970 3 GB (1140/7128 MHz, 1.175V) at 880 RPM and keep the GPU at a maximum of 69C, the VRs below 84C. And most importantly, the cooler is completely inaudible. Impressive, isn't it?"
3D News
Very satisfactory performance, in IDLE it's 8 degrees cooler and when fully load it makes 10 degrees differences. It is suprisingly quieter than the default cooler. With its satisfactory cooling performance, this AX7970 is definitely a product to choose during hot summer to cool off your Radeon HD7900 series graphics card.
The Accelero Xtreme 7970 is able to cool the graphics card (69C to 42C when comparing to stock coolers during load) and remains silent at the same time.
PC Foster
"Incredibly powerful and very quiet"
Accelero Xtreme 7970 greatly reduces the temperature by 41C (from 89C to 48C) in idle. During load, it remains the GPU temperature at around 60C. It also reduces the noise level by 11.9 dBA comparing to stock coolers. This gives space for overclocking and thus Accelero Xtreme 7970 is suitable for enthusiasts.
Core cooling performance were great while the system also became much more quiet. It's very quiet compared to stock coolers and allows you with tons of ram and MOSFET sinks.
A monster of a cooler with three fans, which knows how to cool quietly but also effectively. Installation is easy and has no problem at all. While the reference cooling system keeps the temprature at around 65 degrees underload with loud noise, AX7970 gave a value of 55 degress but also work absolutely silent.
Zhelezo (IRON)
"The Accelero Xtreme 7970 proved to be in 7 degrees Celsius temperature more efficient (on 880 r/min) than its counterpart Twin Frozr IV(on 1730 r/min) when in silent mode!"
"Two words. Buy it."

"I am very surprised that even 3 fans spinning at their maximum speed, we can hardly hear anything. It is a real pleasure for those who wish to have silent... [more]
"The Accelero Xtreme 7970 can be easily lowering the temperature below 55 degrees. It is completely silent in 2D-mode with automatic speed adjustment, with GPU temperature range of 30-64 degrees.We definitely recommend this to overclockers and silent freaks."
The Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA cooler is perfectly convincing in terms of cooling capacity and noise level. It cools the graphics card better and quieter than the built-in reference cooler, so there there's nothing to complain about.

Note: Please assure that the pin assignment is identical to the cooler on your graphics card. We have this far no knowledge of any graphics card manufacturer not following this standard. If it should still be the case, you can with help of a needle remove the pins from the plug and rearrange them.

How to unplug the PCI-E power connector?

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.


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.
