Aftermarket Cooler for Quadro P4000 - Advice Needed

I'm running a PNY Quadro P4000 in my work PC. It's a custom built PC, & most of it is quiet. Sadly, the P4000 has a terrible single slot blower cooler with a minimum fan speed around 2000rpm. I'm sick of listening to it already. Is there a good option for an aftermarket air cooler that will work well with this card?

I'm leaning towards trying the Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo III. I don't think I really need the back heat sink, & the size will force me to move the card to the PCIex8 slot. That said, I don't believe the bandwith difference of the PCIEx8 slot will have a notable impact on my work, & the Accelero Twin Turbo II requires gluing heatsinks to the card, which I'm not willing to do. They claim compatibility with all of the GeForce 10-series cards. Is there any reason it wouldn't also be compatible with the Pascal versions? Are there any other potential issues I'm overlooking?

Any recommendations other than the Accelero series? I generally don't see temps over 50°C even with the stock cooler, so I don't need anything extreme. I just want quiet.

P4000 is a low wattage card so it won't take much to keep it cool. Twin turbo iii is way overkill. Their L2 plus or Mono plus would be more than enough for your card. Instead of using the supplied glue, get some Sekisui thermal tape to attach the little heatsinks.

Get a newer accelero with the backplate if you have 23mm clearance, don't use thermal adhesive. Quadro P4000 is basically a GTX 1070 cut down and underclocked (GP104) to 105W.


If you aren't fully loading the GPU the mono plus cooler would probably be better fit since you wouldn't need a fan splitter.



Also don't expect Nvidia to give you any help, they outright refuse to drop min fan speeds even when GPUs are at idle or sub 40°C. No tools can edit the fan profile either as far as I am aware.


Even RTX 4000 has min fan speed 30% (1500RPM) https://www.igorslab.media/nvidia-qu...g-igorslab/11/

So, a bit of an update. I decided to order the Twin Turbo III. It came in yesterday, & I'm hoping to attempt installation some time this week. I will update further when I've had a chance to try it out. I think I'm going to have to turn the NH-D15 vertical to fit everything. I'm also considering leaving the fans off of the GPU cooler & just relying on case airflow.

Update time:
The Accelero Twin Turbo III will not work with my current setup without major rework.

The P4000 has a primary shroud that both connects the rear slot bracket to the card & provides some passive cooling to parts on the card. It also has a small heatsink with 2 heatpipes that cools the GPU die & hangs over the VRM, but with no thermal interface material. When I got a better sense of how the GPU was assembled, I intended to just remove the heatsink & add the new one. Sadly, the mounting bracket is larger than then inset in the GPU, & I wouldn't get contact with the die. It's only about a 0.3mm gap, but I don't feel comfortable grinding down anything enough to make up the difference. Additionally, the backplate is just slightly too tall to fit under the NH-D15 even turned to exhaust vertically. I could've moved the GPU to the PCIex8 slot, but my case only has 7 PCIe slots, & the support bracket is too tall to fit in the lower slot without an 8 slot case.

Next step is to try a more basic cooler, probably the Accelero L2 PLUS since it has a different mounting bracket that may allow the coldplate to contact the die properly. Now that I understand how the rest of the card is assembled, I'm not worried about cooling the rest of the components anymore. I'll update again next time I mess with it.

Well, the L2 Plus isn't going to work either, at least as delivered. The Quadro P4000 has a 58mmx58mm+/-1mm heatsink bolt pattern. The L2 Plus doesn't support larger than a 53.2mmx53.2mm bolt pattern. I think this is still going to be my best option, so the next step will probably be buying a small sheet to make a custom bracket for. This is getting a lot more complicated than I hoped, but that factory fan is just intolerable. I will continue to update as things progress. I don't particularly like CLC coolers, but I'm almost wondering if a basic one would be easier to install quickly.
