Now I have to make it fit
Did you get Alphacool Block for 3090 xtreme model??
No, I bought a MSI Ventus and bought this block. The thermal pad layout is the same though when looking at the instructions, it's probably not far off reference.
Thanks for your info.
This Bykski block does not contact any mosfet and coil (red cirle zone on my pic). So it is impossible to use any thermal pad on there. Guess Bykski did not make the block properly like Alpahcool.
Arghhh still waiting on my pre-order since 24/9 and it's doing my head in.
my 1600p monitor has come in now so now I'm sub 60fps on some games hahah.
When it was 1080p I didn't have a problem so I didn't care as much.
Have you been looking around to see if you can randomly pick one up elsewhere? Or is it a case of the price was very good back then and you want to hold out?
The whole 3080 skew is a limited edition run lol.
Shit, I actually thought that was covered in water and I was going to see a bleeding heart story of dropping a 3080 into a toilet or something lol.
Just a lot of plastic. Managed to cram it into my H210 to test it's working, stripped it back down and modifying the case for better airflow.
Then moving to the Ncase M1.
Are you planning to pair your future RTX3080 with your i5-2500K? If so, that's cool haha.
How are you modding your H210 for better airflow?
Stripped the case, took it into work with me, got out the angle grinder and cut out a big hole in the bottom where the 3.5" drives (I'm all SSD & NVME) fit, then put an old dust filter over it.
Edit: It's in.
Ah right - thanks. So basically the front half of the bottom of the case. I assume you have an sfx psu in there as well. Will be interesting to see what it does to the thermals - don't suppose you did some tests beforehand?
I have a H210i and waiting for the same card. But I am air cooling a 10700k, so I don't have that big rad in there. Just a couple of 140mm Noctuas. Hoping that airflow is sufficient
I did a custom side panel with extra 140mm fan on my case to pull out more heat. It has lowered motherboard temps by a bit and the GPU seems cooler too, although I have also been tweaking the voltages so don't have a good baseline.
With a sigh of relief, my 3080 arrived and was able to pick it up!
Another Evga 3080 ftw Ultra it seems.
Seems the FTW3s are coming thru, the XC3s are a bit slow
Pretty much, and no I'm using an ATX PSU, which doesn't help.
You should be much better off without a radiator worsening the airflow. And no tests, it's really just temporary until moving a a new case, which will be smaller and still have better thermals.
Unfortunately this case just has poor airflow.
Few 3dmark benchies just to get a sense of the evga 3080 ftw3 ultra, and it typically gets 1950mhz clock.
While watching the card, I noticed the fans weren't spinning at all until a little way into the tests. Peak temps according 3dmark app said 70deg.
Early days, fun times ahead.
