    Anyone using Bykski waterblock , on their manual they did not instruct to put thermal pad on some mosfet and capacitor.

    Marked as red circle. Should I not put thermal pad on there? Also I have 0.5 to 2.0mm thermal pad to use , which one should I use to make it better contact?
    My block is Bykski 3090 xtreme block.
    Thanks advance

    Ugh, decided the 3080 is a much smarter option and spend the $$$ on a decent PSU, glad I came in here to ask. Double the price for what seems to be a 15-20% increase in performance from what I've been able to find isn't the smartest thing...

    I'm interested to know, now that we are in Jan 2021, how many are still waiting for 3080 cards and how many of those have PLE pre-orders? Can a poll be added within a thread? :o

    I have an AlphaCool block but it has the exact same layout of thermal pads and it's cool & stable. Mine came with 1mm, 2mm and 3mm pads and I labelled the thickness of each pad on your image.

    Got my FTW3 Hybrid 3080 from PLE the other day. Fits in a Meshify C with the rad and 1 set of fans front mounted (with a little persuasion). So if your case supports a 315mm GPU you should be fine. I also had a 317mm Trinity in there. The end of the card is hard up against the rad so the ports on the end of it aren't usable for me. I think it's just the fan RGB which I couldn't care less about. I knew I had the option to do some mods to the front mesh panel and fit the fans in there if needed, but wasn't required for me.

    Stuck a 450W BIOS on there just for shits and giggles and did a 12700+ PR with a quick and dirty 5 min overclock. I'm still running it undervolted for day to day atm and it sits under 50c in games. Very happy for $1390. Might have a bit more of a play with the OC on the weekend.

    My $1380 Trinity also did 12533 in PR @ 370W so it's mainly just a quality of life thing for less heat and noise.

    $1390, nice. PLE really came through for those with patience.

    but pretty sure you will have better thermals and noise levels than anyone running $1800 Strix or in fact any other card out there on air...

    Tech Jesus reporting that board partners have said the 3080 TI is "on hold".... until supply issues can be sorted for existing SKUs. lol

    Tbh I'm ok with it being on hold either way. The 3080 feels like it only just came out and I'm willing to be most people are still waiting on their pre orders. It just feels way too seen to have a refresh or Ti and would be a slap in the face to those who puchased a 3080.

    I'm shocked there are supply issues.
