    Deshrouding a EVGA XC3 3080 - Advice Please

    I guess what has me confused is that I don't have my gpu fans connected to the cpu they are connected to the aio header on the motherboard. Therefore I don't know how to best set a profile for it.

    Deshrouding a EVGA XC3 3080 - Advice Please

    Yes but that would require taking a dremel to the heatsink which I prefer not to do. This was I can still sell the card on when the 3080ti or similar is released.

    IT WAS THE BIOS!!!! All working fine now. Now I get to start tweaking. I also removed the fans on the gou but left the shroud as the shroud buts nicely against the Nocturn and functions like a duct. This also saves me from using the dremel. Thermals shortly.

    Deshrouding a EVGA XC3 3080 - Advice Please

    Ok so there isn't an risk as far as the card throwing up errors etc? Do you need feel there will be a significant noise reduction with this mod? I will attach to the motherboard to allow for better fans control as you suggested.
  19. K

    Deshrouding a EVGA XC3 3080 - Advice Please

    The primary reason for the mod is noise reduction. The Noctua NF-A12x25s PWM fans are almost silent and I want this rig to be super quiet.

The only negative is 48 is very big and you need to sit 36 to 40inches away from it. Price point is good too considering its specs and...

    Thank you for the thoughtful and helpful response. My thinking for the deshroud was to eliminate noise rather than better thermals. Do you think it would achieve better sound levels? I can't find the sf750 for some reason. Can you explain why it is more quiet than the sf600? I will look into...

    Smallest case that can accomodate wc a 3090? Ncase m1?

    I am based in the UK so importing it would bring a boatload of tax. Pricing doesn't seem too bad though. It was always my understanding these designes were not cpu friendly but it looks interesting. I would like to better understand noise and thermal performance.
