Accelero S1 Passive GFX Cooling

Are you sure it's big enough? Arctic Cooling will soon release its new Accelero S1 passive heatsink for high-end graphics cards. Care to comment? Feel free to do so below....

Link

Might be interesting for a review. Obviously not for the 'clocker', but the silence connoisseur...

ive sounds good, but you gotta have fans somewhere to push/pull the heat out of the case... might as well watercool.

Edit: P@$$ive is a bad word???

Well once its got heatpipes and a lot of copper in it the only way do increase efficiency is to increase surface area. Other than that they could make all the fins copper, they would then cost a stupid amount.

I started looking for this when I got my 7900 because they were meant to be released last april or something, ended up re-using my nv5 silencer.

Thing is pretty huge though.

The passive cooler on my XFX 7950 was really nice, not too big and kept the card at a good temp. The small ones I added to my 7600GT cards also work well.

I LOVE AC Cooling stuff, but this is too big. And just imagine all that heat just radiating all over the inside of your case.

I dont get what engineers are doing, its like "hey cases are big lets fill them up with stuff" but once full how is the air supposed to pass through them?

Vantec Tornados full blast? THis is way to big. I would never buy anything this big. Reminds me of the Thermaltake Sonic Tower.
