Looking for a Threadripper workstation able to manage at the beginning 2x RX 6900 XT for dev and testing but later switch to up to 4x passive cooled A100/Mi210 accelerators.

The problem here is not the case itself but the cooling needed for a passive cooled GPU, so wanted to ask if anyone has an idea about how to solve this without using the expensive and proprietary Supermicro solutions.

without using high powered san aces / delta / nidac server fans?

not possible... oh they need to be in a rack case also as they are ducted by design and not a PC tower case.

But we have seen NAS's overheat internally without good fans in those rack cases, so your going to be like a dog chasing his tail endlessly with heat if you decide to go that passive heat sink route without a rack case and high powered server fans.
