    Phoronix: Arctic's Accelero Twin Turbo III Works Well For Polaris GPU Cooling

    Back in December I wrote about passively cooling a Radeon RX 480 by means of the after-market Accelero S3 passive cooler. That passive GPU cooler worked well but under demanding loads did get a bit hot, but what I came to realize after buying that cooler is the height requirements exceeded that of a 4U rackmount chassis... So recently I decided to switch to using the Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo III...

    It would be nice to see 5U server cases. Granted, I'd like to 5U cases that are designed for mATX motherboard with less than 13" in depth and be able to fit a couple of 2.5" hard drives (yes, 2.5", not 3.5") for a NAS storage. Would be nice to have a GPU for Deepspeech and Mycroft.

    Mycroft could use Deepspeech as a Speech-To-Text provider and Deepspeech can use GPU for STT acceleration.

    Having a GTX 1070 could be good for my kind of project if I could replace the heatsink/fans with the Accelero. I'm in for quietness, when combined with an MSI ECO B150 motherboard and a 35W TDP Core i3 CPU. Low heat output is important when choosing a processor that balances the performance and power efficiency.

      My Sapphire RX470 Nitro got a fan damaged (mea culpa...), and after looking for a replacement fan I was shocked at the prices, even for Chinese knock-offs. So I decided to adapt a much cheaper Arctic Cooling 92mm chassis fan. At first I plugged its connector on the motherboard and now I managed to use the card connector. Is not a pretty adaptation, but is much more cheap than a original fan and works just fine.

        Recently managed to get a pair of those fabled Nitro Gear fans from Neweeg (they don't have them anymore). USD$20 a pop. Holy crap. That, plus they are impossible to get. Next time they fail I'm just going to replace the whole thing.

          I have put an Accelero Mono Plus on my RX480 and changed the Accelero fan to a Noctua 12 cm. It is basically loudness: https://imgur.com/a/1RuA6

            No offense, but that still looks pretty horrendous.

            And for VRM cooling, I guess you're limited to whatever air passes through the fins.

              Those coolers come with small heatsinks for VRAM and VRM chips. They seem small and insufficient, but to be honest many third party cards have lackluster VRM cooling (simple cooling plates with no fins) and sometimes none for the VRAM. Only a few have full blocks that include the VRM (talking about the RX480's, the RX580's had beefier coolers). Unless you are overclocking and/or pushing more volts over stock, then it won't make much of a difference. As long as you have air over them you're fine.
