Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 & Accelero X1 review - Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 & Accelero X1 review
Thu, April 06 2006 | 2:04PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Today we are looking at two new products from Arctic Cooling, the Alpine 64 CPU cooler for Socket 754/939, and the Accerelo X1 GPU cooler for Nvidia 6800/7800 series cards. People often ask us, 'Hey dude, I bought a new CPU, it's OEM, which heatsink should I buy?' I respond with, 'How noisy would you like it to be? Do you intend to overclock? How much are you looking to spend?' For me this is not a great question, because I only look at high end stuff most of the time. Zalmans and Thermalrights are all very well, but they are expensive from the perspective of the average user, and the Thermalrights also need a fan purchased seperately to mount on top. No, the sort of sink most people are looking for is a quiet one, easy to install and cheap, yet allows the user to dabble in a little bit of overclocking should they decide they want to later down the road. This new CPU cooler from Arctic Cooling, a company we are all familiar with due to their huge success with the Arctic Silencer series of GPU coolers, looks to fulfill all those needs. But does it ?
