    Phoronix: ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme Plus II

    If you're a Linux desktop user on an open-source graphics driver that lacks proper fan management and power management support, you may want to consider an after-market graphics card cooler that is more efficient and also quieter. One of the high-performance after-market GPU cooling solutions is the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme Plus II, which boasts three fans but is very quiet and does an incredible job at keeping NVIDIA and ATI/AMD graphics processors operating at quite low temperatures.

    I bought this cooling solution a year ago and I'm so incredibly satisfied with it. At the same time I exchanged my Core i7 stock fan/heatsink for a Prolima Megahalem (a real beast) which was also incredible. I recommend this site for people who wants to find quiet and effective cooling solutions, it's the best I've every found:

      That cpu heatsink really looks like it will crush your motherboard if you put down the case a teeny bit too hard

        Hehe yes, it's not for moving around to much

        The current leader on their list (cooling/noise) seems to be a bit lighter, but still at 790 g.

          On the CPU side, I can also recommend the also rather huge, though not quite as towering, Noctua HSFs. I've got an NH-12UP, and it's both rather quiet and very efficient. It's got a huge, slow-spinning, fan - and if you've got the room, that's usually a good solution.

              I have a limit of about 500g for my heatsinks. Currently using a Freezer7Pro. Not the best heatsink out there, but it still lets me run an i5 2500k @4.2GHz without getting too hot.

                I was positively surprised by the stock heatsink shipped with Phenom X6s. Quite a difference when comparing to the stock Intel one with my previous cpu.

                  I never though I'd see the "My heatsink is bigger than yours"-thread...
