Arctic Cooling does a good job of letting the cooling do all of the talking on the front of the package. You can also see all of the graphics cards that the cooler fits along the top.



The back side of the package lists some general performance information as well as the technical specifications.



There isn't much going on across the top of the cooler other than the three 80mm cooling fans that run from the front to the back.



The business end of the cooler comes with pre-applied premium thermal paste and a copper plug where the GPU contacts the cooler. The memory is cooled by an aluminium plate, and some provided thermal pads fit between the memory and the plate.



Here we see the density of the aluminium fins that dissipate the cards heat.



On the back side you can see that the heatpipes run the entire length of the cooler.



The included mounting hardware for the Accelero Xtreme 2900 is pictured here. AC has covered all of the bases from the VRM chips that go along the back of the card to an extra back plate that allows air to pass through the back of the case.
