    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    thought I’d update this thread. Received the replacement hybrid cooler from EVGA. It was clearly a kit that someone had returned at some point… the shroud that came with it was all scratched up (I kept my old one which was/is immaculate) but I only really needed the pump/block and radiator so...

    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    EVGA took care of me and I’m waiting for the replacement to arrive now. I’m hoping this is the last time I need to replace the cooler on this card

    EVGA RTX 3090/3080 FTW3 Ultra conversion to Hybrid

    Been rocking an EVGA 3090 Ultra with a hybrid kit for almost a year and I’ve been very happy with the performance of the kit but it’s had its share of issues. the GPU side fan took a shit recently and started making all kinds of noise. Since I purchased it second hand, I had no warranty and...

    WTB - nothing for now

    I have a gigabyte VEGA64 OC gaming that I’m not really using. It’s been sitting in my server, under-utilized, since getting my 3090. I’m willing to let it go if you still need one. Make me an offer.

    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    Thats a really good point about both Asetek and the warrenty... think I may just go with a new EVGA AIO and call it a day. Thanks for the input guys

    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    For reference this is what I'm dealing with I wish it were but the kit was purchased separately (this was installed on a regular FTW3 ULTRA card). Products with the B1 suffix aren't transferable :\ Yeah I'm keeping that option open, but it seems like EVGA QC hasn't been great on those hybrid...

    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    So I think the pump on this cooler is on the way out... it's been making an annoying buzzing sound, and looking through their forums, it seems somewhat common. Unfortunately I purchased it second hand so it's not covered by the transferrable warranty, and I'm looking for options. I was...

    Dead EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming?

    I was experiencing some weird things with my 3090 FTW3 from time to time (occasional flickering image and/or black screen crash). I did a bunch of reading on these issues and, while there are a lot of theories floating around as to what’s causing it, it “seems” like it may be related to the way...

    Rtx 3000 series undervolt discussion

    I just decided to try undervolting my 3090 hybrid last night and I’m amazed with the results. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t try this sooner. Temps in some cases are as much as 10* lower with the same, and in some cases more, performance. Win win!

    Random reboots ~only~ when idle - Linux and Windows

    what bios version are you using? I was having almost identical issues as yourself and downgrading back to F21 seems to have solved it. I also seem to have a strange issue where one of my ram sticks comes loose in slot A2 which was driving me crazy and causing more issues troubleshooting. I...

    Help diagnosing system instability, kernel power critical message

    Ok so it wasn’t a bios issue (or not completely). It turns out that I have a stick of ram that keeps coming loose... how that’s happening, I’m not completely sure, especially considering it happens sometimes without even touching the machine. Possibly thermal expansion? either way, has anyone...

    So believe it or not, I think it was a bios issue. Went back to and older revision from earlier this year and so far so BSODs or random restarts. Keeping my fingers crossed

    Help diagnosing system instability, kernel power critical message

    This has been happening on and off since first building this rig in February of this year and I’m at my wits end. I want to find out what’s causing it so I can have a reliable machine again. I should note that it only seems to happen when the machine is idle and typically in the middle of the...

    Apple M1

    So after thinking about it a bit I actually canceled my order and decided to go with an x86 Mac mini. Lack of OS backwards compatibility and egpu support were the major deciding factors. Still looking forward to seeing what the M1 is capable of and perhaps Rosetta 2 will make software support a...

    Apple M1

    I think the PPC architecture was similar to x86 in that it was an OTS part though (IIRC). With the M1 (and the A series arm chips) its a custom design by apple. Given their ability to tune iOS to their own A series chips I’m willing to bet these new macs will be fairly healthy machines

    Apple M1

    I honestly expect these machines to run circles around the intel variants if for nothing else than having the OS and hardware custom tailored to one another. My iPad Pro, while having a much lower core count, memory and GPU than my 3900x system, feels a whole lot quicker.

    Did you guys order from the first link or the premiere link? still haven’t received that email but my card has yet to be charged. Ordered from the premiere link @9am est I assume they just got so many orders in that it’s going to take time to inform everybody that they sold out
