Cooling system Accelero Hybrid 7970 consists of two parts which boast as air, so water cooling standards. It is able to manage up to 320W of hot air. The water block is cooled down by the 120 mm fan which is able to achieve the speed in the measures of 400-1350 rpm. The block, that is installed on the board, is equipped with 80 mm fan and is able to achieve from 900 to 2000 rpm speed. The noise level is dwindled down to the minimal index.
