PWM fans

PWM fans are used for lots of things now. A PWM fan can be used as a case fan, as a heatsink fan, or as a rad fan. AIO coolers simply expand the playing field for PWM fans. So I have collected twenty-four fans here for review in our 2016 case fan roundup. Read More

Arctic Accelero S3 Passive Graphics Card Cooler Review

Today, we get a chance to review an Arctic branded cooler, the Accelero S3 Passive. As the name states, this cooler does not come with any fans, so it would be dead silent.

I strapped the unit on the recently reviewed MSI GTX 960 Gaming, a solid mid-range performer, to see how it does. Read on for more details! Read More

Arctic Accelero Mono Plus GPU Cooler Review

I recently completed a review of Arctic’s Accelero L2 Plus, which is designed for lower-end video cards at a very attractive price. This time around, we are raising the bar by having a look at the much higher-end Accelero Mono Plus.
