Arctic Accelero Xtreme III Review
Cases and Cooling
Article Publish Date:
Since the beginning of time Arctic has been the foremost leader in all types of cooling solutions, as a matter of fact I remember when I first dove into the PC world around the time ATI moved into the X1000 series of graphics cards. It was a new architecture and they ran hot, luckily Arctic was there with their excellent line of silencer cooling solutions.
So after reviewing the Arctic Xtreme Plus II back in May of this year, I decided it was time to see what’s new with Arctic.
Along with their recent release of the Hybrid Water solutions, they have still made time to churn out the standard Accelero cooling lineup, so today I will be taking a look at the Accelero Xtreme III.
The AC Xtreme III is similar to the previous Xtreme II with the exception of the fans, and of course more mounting options.
So let’s get at it, and see what this cooler is capable of.
The increased heat emission of modern computers has put the production of powerful and quiet coolers beyond the means of most manufacturers. The raised noise levels of PC systems have a negative impact on productivity, since a quiet computer is the basis for pleasant working conditions. ARCTIC initiated the trend towards quiet cooling systems for desktop PCs in 2001 and has led the way ever since. When ARCTIC COOLING was founded, we began by focusing on Switzerland and Germany. In 2002 ARCTIC COOLING (HK) Ltd. was founded to develop relationships with our Asian production locations. From 2005, we started to expand business in North and South America and provide optimum service to our customer base there.
ARCTIC is now a leading manufacturer of CPU coolers, GPU coolers and case fans. In recent years we acquired a far-ranging expertise in the field of consumer electronics. The company’s product range has been further enhanced by new lines unrelated to PC cooling which was the reason behind the 2010 change in our brand name and logo: ARCTIC COOLING became the ARCTIC brand umbrella.
