    I was told not to use the correct size pads for my RTX 2060S/2080S? Also need fans.

    It's mostly the 2080 that runs hot, the 2060 only runs hot with the cover on the case closed.. hitting 80C while it's around 70C with the cover off. I am going to fix that problem by cutting a hole for a fan in the case's side panel. But the case my 2080 is in has a LOT of airflow (Cooler Master...

    I was told not to use the correct size pads for my RTX 2060S/2080S? Also need fans.

    My card only has two fans, what do you mean by NNL made by the way? That they are third party? Is that why the fins don't have the EVGA logo all over them? When I asked for help on the EVGA subreddit.

    I was told not to use the correct size pads for my RTX 2060S/2080S? Also need fans.

    I was considering the K5 Pro, but there have been a lot of newer reviews and videos lately that it's actually a very bad idea to use that stuff.

    I was told not to use the correct size pads for my RTX 2060S/2080S? Also need fans.

    I have a 08G-P4-3062-KR (EVGA RTX 2060 Super SC Black ACX 3.0) and a 08G-P4-3081-KR (EVGA RTX 2080 SUPER Black) For the 2060, the fan sometimes makes a grinding noise (Shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLUOB9xM-5E ) and the noise gets louder if I touch the card. I was told that the...

    Grinding noise coming from my GPU

    Not an option with this proprietary motherboard, I will have to use the video card's headers.

    Grinding noise coming from my GPU

    The problem if I need to replace the fan is even finding a decent replacement. Like I said I have only been able to find them on eBay which are very likely used and pulled out of a card... yet cost as much as a high-end Noctua fan... or are from sketchy looking sites named things like...

    Grinding noise coming from my GPU

    The shroud? So it's just the outside cosmetic plastic casing that the fan is hitting against? If that's the case, can I just sand down the edge of the shroud that the fan is hitting against a little?

    Grinding noise coming from my GPU

    There is a noise coming from my RTX 2060 Super, and I am starting to get worried if the fans are going. When I first got it the fans would constantly while it was idle be off, then suddenly speed up, then go off, and repeat over and over. The noise drove me nuts, so I """fixed""" it by using...

    Are there any recommended M.2 NVME/SATA docks? (Not Enclosures)

    There are several listed on Amazon that do exactly that, I even have enclosures that do that. Issue is I don't know which of the docks on Amazon are any good, all of them are from brands I never heard of and I have no idea what chipsets they use.

    Are there any recommended M.2 NVME/SATA docks? (Not Enclosures)

    I think there is some confusion, I don't mean I want to connect standard SATA drives, as in the 2.5 and 3.5 form factor ones, I meant one that will accept both M.2 NVME and M.2 SATA drives.

    Are there any recommended M.2 NVME/SATA docks? (Not Enclosures)

    I am looking for a M.2 dock that preferably accepts both M.2 NVME and SATA drives. I tried to Google about it but all the results were for enclosures, I am not looking for an enclosure but a device similar to a HDD dock that will just let me quickly plug a M.2 drive in/out of it. Preferably, one...

    Are there no options left for people in the US to get a quality thermal pad for their GPU?

    These? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09WKRT7WP I know that's a small pad, but it's pretty cheap IMO. The Gelid one I was trying to get cost twice as much as that for an even smaller overall area (85x45 vs 120x20). Unless I once again fell for a 3rd party bootleg reseller. And despite their claim...

    Are there no options left for people in the US to get a quality thermal pad for their GPU?

    This has been a wild ride, and I am utterly confused. My GPU is overheating in some of my systems and I am going to re-pad and re-paste it, I am not expecting miracles but every little bit can help and I wanted to get good pads to replace the stock ones on this cheap OEM card. It only has two...

    GPU upgrade for my Dell Precision T3610 causes reboots

    The old GPU was a Quadro, the drivers would not even work on the Geforce class of GPUs, but I completely cleaned them out anyway. Never had issues with wiping drivers for GPU upgrades before. But yes, I used DDU in safe mode, and when I reinstalled the drivers I did it with the ethernet plug...

    GPU upgrade for my Dell Precision T3610 causes reboots

    Well great, it JUST happened again, and this time the RTX2060 isn't even in my system! I swapped it out temporarily for a GT720 until I can figure this out about a week ago. I thought for sure it was the RTX2060 since the day I installed it my system would crash within roughly 24 hours, at most...

    Worried I might be overloading my fan headers

    So should I get a three-way fan splitter to plug into the 92mm fan instead of daisy-chaining splitters off the built-in splitter in the 92mm fan? Or is the difference going to be so small that it's better not to spend that extra money?

    Worried I might be overloading my fan headers

    I kind of am. The Arctic fans include a plug to connect a second fan to them, and I only have dual fan splitters. Basically I will plug the Arctic 92mm fan into the header, and then a splitter into that 92mm fan, one will go to the 120mm, and the other will go to another splitter for both 60mm...

    Worried I might be overloading my fan headers

    I have a system that has three proprietary fans on three headers, they are all 12V and 0.95A and look like this: I am going to be replacing them with standard fans using an adapter so I can put more fans on the system, I will be replacing them with these...

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    I was wondering if it was a thing where 3rd parties make replacement fans, but seems like it's not. I will just keep the fan then if I can't replace it with a better one. I was able to measure them, they are 2mm thick.

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    Ok, so I finally took the card apart. Going to re-paste and re-pad it, but now I am wondering if I should replace the fan too if that's feasable/affordable. I took it apart and saw this: Is that paste application normal? I know that you ruin the paste once you take the heatsink off and...

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    Yeah, I know I can easily get power to a fan from the currently unused (for now) extra SATA connector I have, the issue with that is it will jus run at max speed.... or with some kind of potentiometer just at one set speed. The consumer or the enterprise models though? This is a xeon-based...

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    Yeah, I am sure I can jury-rig something up, especially if I remove that case intrusion switch. Not sure how much just adding a single small rear exhaust fan will help though. I was considering something below the GPU too, but that might hurt more than help. And a side-fan which could help a...

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    That's the thing, it's not a rear fan MOUNT, it's just a rear grill. There are no holes to mount a fan. Nor are there any spare fan headers on the motherboard. There's no molex connectors in this thing either.

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    Proprietary case. Proprietary motherboard. Proprietary PSU. Proprietary cooling. I would have to basically build an entirely new PC to replace the case.

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    There's no molex on this system so I can't use any of those that rely on a molex connector for power.

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    Yeah I know, I have no idea if the airflow is designed with the side cover closed in mind. Looking throughout the case, there is certainly ROOM for fans... but no headers on the motherboard or mounting holes for them. The only fans are some propitery-sized "stick" of three mini-fans in the front...

    Want to Repaste/Pad my HP OEM 2060 Super, can't find instructions or photos/videos on disassembly

    No, are you saying it would cool better with the side panel on even though there are no fans or vents on the side panel? Yeah, it has a massive 200mm fan right on the side, I miss when cases had side-fans, they cool cards absurdly well. My RAID card in that same system overheats it's backup...

    GPU upgrade for my Dell Precision T3610 causes reboots

    I have a Dell Precision T3610. I would like to clarify that this PC uses a proprietary PSU/Motherboard/Case so I can't really replace any of those with standard parts. My PC came with a 685 Watt PSU, and it originally came with an Intel Xeon 1260v2 and Nvidia Quadro K4000, as well as a 1500RPM...

    Got a used RTX 2060 Super, just want to make sure these stress tests check out

    So 3DMark got back to me on the Steam forums telling me that the glitchy shadows is a known bug with the Port Royal benchmark, and that they don't know how to fix it without invalidating all past benchmark results of it. Anyway another thing I realized now is that while these benchmarks and...

    If I were to undervolt it would probably be best to do it in the system the card is eventually going to go into than the much more powerful one that I am currently testing the card in, I am going to be testing the card in the current system for a while as I have other upgrades to do on the...

    I have some Noctua NT-H2 left over I could use. The issue is... I have no idea how many pads it uses, what sizes, and what thicknesses. I heard that some cards can have pads of multiple thicknesses in various areas. Part of the reason I still like to use this old case. Two 200mm fans on the...

    I got a HP OEM RTX 2060 Super. Since this is going in an older Dell system anyway I was preferring to try to get a smaller card like this to make sure it will fit (And as a bonus the 8-pin connector is on the side like the current card in the Dell is instead of the top which I wasn't sure I...

    WD Blue vs Seagate Barracuda, trying to choose a 2TB HDD

    Me thinks you're a child for such an immature reply. I would have loved to go bigger, but I can't really do that for $50 without risking used/refurbished drives. It's still a massive upgrade from the 300GB drive it will be replacing anyway.

    WD Blue vs Seagate Barracuda, trying to choose a 2TB HDD

    There is nothing wrong with "spinning rust" for mass storage. Sorry, but if "Everything MUST be SSD" is the hill you die on, then "HDDs make more sense for mass storage" is the hill I will die on. It's absurd to want to remove all mechanical drives just for the sake of removing all mechanical...

    Buy a new 8-pin PCIe cable or convert my two existing 6 Pin to a single 8 Pin?

    The Dell PSUs don't have any connections actually, look closer, it just has edge connectors on it. Ah the joys of proprietary PSUs meant for cooperate workstations.... My PSU is 685 watts, which I would hope is enough for an RTX 2060 Super. There are only four PSU options for this system, 425...

    WD Blue vs Seagate Barracuda, trying to choose a 2TB HDD

    Not only did I not have the money back then, but I don't WANT them to be a single drive. Makes backups and reinstalls much easier and faster when my OS is isolated from everything else. I also prefer to have a separate game drive since I have no reason to back that up and I can just re-download...

    WD Blue vs Seagate Barracuda, trying to choose a 2TB HDD

    The SSD is for games so I can leave that 250GB SSD just for my OS and Apps, the HDD is for mass storage and to replace a 300GB HDD that is rapidly running out of space.
