Accelero Twin Turbo III

Unmatched Cooling Performance

Accelero Twin Turbo III

The Accelero Twin Turbo III has 250 Watts of cooling capacity which is more than enough for mid to high-end graphics cards. ARCTIC´s patented backside cooler, the MX-4 thermal compound (pre-applied) and two 92mm PWM fans lower the GPU temperature significantly- ideal for overclocking.

Accelero Twin Turbo III

Backside Cooler for Highest Efficiency

Accelero Twin Turbo III

ARCTIC has developed and patented a back side cooler for unparalleled VRM and RAM cooling performance. It offers efficient cooling for RAM and voltage regulators and thus does not just allow higher clock rates but mainly increases the graphics card's service life.

Accelero Twin Turbo III

Installation Without Thermal Glue

Up to now the meticulous work of attaching different heatsinks with thermal glue was necessary. Thanks to the innovative back side plate this is a thing of the past. Without any thermal glue the graphics card can be returned to its original condition any time without leaving marks or residues.

Accelero Twin Turbo III

Virtually Silent

Its low noise impeller and patented fan holder ensures the fan is ultra quiet even under full load. Thanks to the PWM control, the fan speed adjusts according to the GPU temperature and thus the noise level remains at an absolute minimum.


Accelero Twin Turbo III

Multi-Compatibility

The Accelero Twin Turbo III features a versatile, problem free mounting system that allows this cooler to be the most compatible yet.


New Fan Controller

An improved fan controller and the use of additional filters guarantee a smooth operation with both NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards. Through software, the temperature-fan speed curve can be adjusted. No matter whether you are a hardcore-gamer or a silent enthusiast, you get the temperature and noise level exactly where you want it to be.

3 out of 5 eggsOk for some

Pros: Worked great my 7850 went from 80c max to 60c when it worked.

Cons: One fan stopped working after bout 3 months of normal use now it's only cooling at half it's normal

Other Thoughts: Would only recommand this if you cannot fix your stock cooler or upgrade to liquid. it does work good for overclockers when all the fans work.

5 out of 5 eggsDropped 25C, Whisper Quiet, and Modestly Easy.

Pros: +Quiet as a mouse, even @ 100%
+Dropped Load temps at least 25C on R9 270X
+Fairly Easy Assembly

Cons: +Backplate is probably useless, unless you have another fan blowing air directly towards it from the side.

Other Thoughts: If my wife would allow it, I'd buy two more (for my two other R9 270X's).

This replaced the original single fan cooler from the first PowerColor R9 270X I bought. The shroud's plastic has seen enough heat and stress, the fan mount points were cracking faster than I could glue them together, the fan bearings themselves were wearing out (dual ball bearing, but drying up and getting noisy).

For the life of the card, it's been OC'd to 1250/1500 (from 1080/1400), and until recently had always been stable with that. But lately the cards temperature had been increasing, and thus I had to decrease the clock 1250 -> 1230 to keep it stable while running clLucas. Even with the drop in clock, I was facing 76C @ load.

With this cooler, the card now runs 49-51C @ load (and 100% fan, because why not? It's silent!), and that is back to the original clocks (1250/1500).

The instructions were poor, but I expect that from the start, thanks to other reviews.

They are good enough, if you have the right tools. Specifically, I recommend one of those $2 Xacto rulers. With that, you can measure the hole spacing, and the spacing from the bottom of the PCIe interface to the center of the GPU (closest screw -> bridge + 1/2 mounting hole dimension).

Now, knowing these instructions are too generic, approach carefully and you'll be fine. First, look at the long screws and how they size up to your GPU before you try assembling and mounting. In my case, the 270X was only just as thick as the hex nut on these Long Screws.

The accessories list mentions the 4 washers, which ARCTIC assumes will fit, as they show installing them in the instructions. Of course, assembling with those was not possible for me.

However, what is NOT on the accessories list is the set of plastic ring stickers. They look exactly like the ones that were already on the back of my PCB board (for seating the spring mounted screws), just slightly smaller in diameter. Mount those (use the long screws to align them if you want to be extra careful) and the PCB should be protected (not to mention you should tighten those long screws into the heatsink before slipping it into the GPU, so there should be no rotating/digging into the PCB). From there, just use the spacers that meet your needs.

In my case, the PCB had 4 foam pads next to the 4 mounting points to make sure the original heatsink didn't get tightened off level. This cooler would not mount with those there, but they peel off easy enough, and with the long screws for mounting, there wasn't really much chance for that particular problem to occur.

5 out of 5 eggsAbout 20 degrees colder

Pros: Quiet as the tomb.

Cons: Assembly instructions too simple/short for a one size fits most cooler.

Other Thoughts: It would've been worth finding a video of someone assembling this before I tried it on my own. Just winging it with the paper instructions was barely enough.

4 out of 5 eggsGood results, not so easy installation

Pros: The backplate works amazingly well. The provided thermal pads are thicker than I expected, but the mounting design provides quite a bit of pressure likely squashing them down to half size. After bench-testing several games and then a 1 hour Furmark run it was very toasty to the touch!
I may need some direct exhaust airflow over that area for my motherboard's sake, it works so darn well.

The thermal pads themselves are provided as a single piece but are also pre-cut into ~.25 inch squares which is great for individual placement. You can have long strips for big hot zones and individual pieces for vagrant parts.

This. Thing. Is. Quiet.
I run aggressive fan curves, high clocks and in a hot house.
In games which put high load on the GPU it used to hit 75+C in a 35C ambient room. The stock unit fans at 65% would drown out every other in my PC combined.

With this cooler temps dropped to ~60C . The in-house ambient today was 37C because my AC broke this morning, what a perfect time for this to come in the mail. A 23 degree delta at full (game) load! Amazing. I was experimenting with the fans and settled on an ~850rpm setting at that temp. I can barely hear a thing from the GPU anymore. Furmark hit 68C sustained, in a situation where it would push the GPU beyond 80.
This is really a fantastically performing heatsink.

There is room between the board and cooler to place heatsinks on VRM/VRAM components, I suspect half inch high would fit on the VRAM and MOSFET chips though I have not done any measuring. The backplate makes this unnecessary but if you're a cooling junkie it's very welcome.

Cons: The instructions could be a bit lacking for someone who has never done a heatsink replacement/upgrade.
It's for the most part play-by-picture and, I suspect due to the universal nature, understandably (though regrettably) without much written direction. Some things are intuitive to figure out, others will make you smack your head from silliness.
For one example, the screws to put the holder in place were already assembled into the backplate clamps. I thought Arctic forgot them until I took a good look at things.

The level of tolerance is demanding. One part being a couple millimeters off center can throw the entire thing out of whack. It can make for a daunting challenge to the general non-savvy user.

The GPU holder didn't fit so well on my card. I had to remove the plastic cover of the Crossfire port and do just a little bending of the piece which screws into the case to get things right.

This is a large unit, all parts together. Smaller form motherboards or those with very large CPU coolers/unusual chipset heatsink designs may not have room for the backplate. I would not recommend this for SLI/CFX setups if space is a concern.

Other Thoughts: Proper assembly takes time and patience. It's a complicated process and you need to be exact. As noted in the instructions, you need to be very careful and absolutely ensure that all parts are lined up as best as possible.

Cards may mis-report the fan speed on settings in which the TT3's fans are spinning much slower than the card's BIOS is programmed to read. If I force the fans to spin below ~600RPM on my particular GPU, the readout will go insane (reporting in the hundred-thousands+). I wouldn't label this as a con because it's just the nature of the beast - AIB manufacturers design their coolers and BIOS around each other, replacing the cooler with something that goes well out of spec generates funny results.

And thanks for reading my long-winded review!

5 out of 5 eggsPURE Awesome!

Pros: Cheap, Easy to install, Does what it say's!

Cons: 0, None, ZIP, ZERO.

Other Thoughts: Using on a XFX R7-265 main card out of two cross fired. All of my game on max settings stay under 130F Diablo 3 104F, Watch Dogs 98F Mortal Kombat X 94F. Valley Benchmark max settings temp maxes out at 52C/ 125.6F
This Cooler Works wonderfully I LOVE IT. I have had one friend get it and another wanting it. Well worth the $65.00 Price Tag!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Performace

Pros: Very Quiet
Fantastic Heat dissipation
Fits Both my old 660's NON-ti (Evga 2662//Msi GamerOC)
Comes with bracket to prevent video card warping!!!!

Cons: Quite Huge (cannot use 2 for sli/crossfire unless you have 4 PCIE slots and put one on slot 1 and the other on slot 4)
Quiet Heavy

Other Thoughts: I bought this to cool a ridiculously hot gtx 660 SC from EVGA. My original temps was 86C for EVGA and 76 for MSI while running in SLI on 95%-100% load. The temps dropped on the EVGA from 86C to 56C which to me is ridiculous considering it only cost me around 60 bucks. As a byproduct of the better heat dissipation the MSI card dropped to 68C under full load. I have nothing but great things to say about this cooler. IT WORKS, and quite well I might add. The users that had bad experiences OBVIOUSLY cannot follow instructions nor understand how to use google or youtube to find instructions. Took me about 5 minutes to install including removal of old heatsink/fan shroud and paste from the card and applying fresh Arctic Silver.

5 out of 5 eggsChilly Willy

Pros: Cools nicely! Was over clocking my EVGA GTX 560 ti as far as it could go with max fan and temps at 80C. Now fans running at 60% and max temps hitting 66C. Also running without the backplate due to conflict with the aftermarket CPU heatsink.

Cons: Instructions maybe? I didn't really look at them, just for the pin arrangements around the GPU. Though looking at them they seemed pretty straightforward. Maybe updated instructions from other reviews? Not sure.

1 out of 5 eggsAlmost bricked a 780

Pros: -Fans seemed to work fine

I wish I had more to say about this had the thing worked as intended, but seeing how all this cooler did was give me a headache I can't say much.

Cons: -Absolutely horrible installation instructions
-Shoddy assembly materials (one of the screws managed to bend during install)
-Caused graphical anomalies/freezing/blue screens after install

After installing the cooler as instructed (GTX 780), once booting up for the first time I would reach desktop fine, but after about a second both monitors would shut off and I would hear telltale sounds that I received a blue screen error (sounds repeating incessantly). I thought it was a fluke but it continued, tried reassembling and used different fan options included but to no avail. After a while the machine wouldn't even start up. Once I reattached the stock cooler, everything worked fine.

Other Thoughts: I needed to buy a new GPU cooler since my current has a faulty fan and I needed a replacement. As most aftermarket GPU cooling solutions can be a risky purchase I weighed out a lot of options. Since this cooler seemed to look like a trustworthy solution, and I have purchased a similar one in the past, I tried it out. I was aware of the notoriously bad assembly instructions but since this model is newer and more parts are added this didn't help with deciphering the assembly instructions. After managing to put it all together, some of the parts didn't even look like they were coming into contact with the GPU core and it even seemed like they could short out some of the components on some contact points..

I understand that installing aftermarket solutions can be risky, and I'm no stranger to what possibilities lie ahead after purchasing one. After causing hours of headaches worth of troubleshooting, the scare of a possible bricked $500 GPU, and having to re-install the old cooler in the end, I will never be purchasing a product from Arctic Cooling ever again. I would rather have a broken GPU fan to manage than have a $500 paperweight as a result of lackluster engineering.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler

Pros: Low Temps. Put this on one of my HD 6870s and got load temps from 90C+ to ~75C (at 100% fan speed).

Cons: It is big. The heat-sink on the top takes up 1 PCI slot, and the bottom takes up 2. Not a problem for a single card or the top card of SLI/Crossfire setup though.
