S3 Turbo Module

Powerful Ventilation Add-On for Accelero S3

Availability: In stock

USD 39.99
End of Life
Enhanced Cooling Performance
The S3 Turbo Module is the ultimate extension for the Accelero S3, boosting the already excellent cooling capacity up to 200 Watts.The test shows that this combo reduces the GPU temperature of an AMD R9 270 by up to 17 degrees.

Extreme quiet Operation
Thanks to the ultra-quiet 120 mm fan with a maximum spinning speed of 1,350 RPM the Turbo Module generates a merely 0.25 Sone in operation.That way it significantly increases the potential power of your passive cooling system while it remains almost inaudible.
Simple clip-on installation
A simple clip-on designallows the S3 Turbo Module to be easily installed onto your Accelero S3 in a minute.

Pin assignments of ARCTIC VGA coolers

Pin No.
RPM Signal
PWM Signal

Note: Please assure that the pin assignment is identical to the cooler on your graphics card. We have this far no knowledge of any graphics card manufacturer not following this standard. If it should still be the case, you can with help of a needle remove the pins from the plug and rearrange them.

How to use the 4-pin adapter?

Under what conditions do you need a 4-pin adapter?

Your graphics card

1. is using a non-standard cooler socket (e.g. 5-pin, flipped polarity) or
2. is using a passive cooler as the stock cooler

How to connect the 4-pin adapter?

The differences between 7V and 12V socket*

7V: Moderate fan speed. It gives the best balance between cooling performance and noise level. It is recommended for normal usage.
12V: Full fan speed depending on the fan design. It gives the best cooling performance and it is recommended for high duty usage.

*The fan speed is fixed regardless of the GPU's condition.


1. Ensure your PSU has spare power source and plug in the 4-pin adapter.

2. Connect your ARCTIC graphics card cooler's power plug to the preferred socket.

Please note: Make sure the connector is plugged into the corresponding socket (i.e. A 3-pin plug should be connected to a 3-pin socket and a 4-pin plug should be connected to a 4-pin socket). If the plug is connected to the wrong socket, the motor will burn immediately due to incorrect polarity.

How to Set the fan control curve by software?

Nvidia and AMD graphics cards come with a fan speed controller, which is not necessarily programmed according to your preference and focuses on holding the GPU temperature between 85 and 95°C.

Please download and install the fan controller software MSI Afterburner (https://gaming.msi.com/features/afterburner)

1) Please activate "Start Up" and click on the button "Fan Curve"

2) Create a fan control curve by putting control points.

Be aware that Nvidia's fan controller does no longer work with PWM values but fixed fan speeds. Thus 30%~1050 RPM, 40%~1400 RPM, 50%~1900 RPM, 60%~2400 RPM; no matter whether you use a 40mm fan which can do 10,000 RPM max or a 140mm fan which can go only up to 1400 RPM. In the later case the fan runs at the 40% setting already at full speed.

Our Recommendations:
AMD: 20%/50°C, 30%/55°C, 40%/60°C, 50%/62°C, 60%/64°C, 70%/68°C, 80%/70°C, 100%/75°C
Nvidia: 20%/2°C, 20%/50°C, 30%/60°C, 40%/65°C, 50%/70°C, 60%/75°C, 100%/85°C, 100%/90°C
