You might be able to de-shroud & de-fan the stock RTX & use a pair of NF-A12x25 Noctuas down below...!
Right, but I'm also getting the window panel, and I want to keep the original shroud. I don't mind a bit of extra noise, I have a massive air purifier in my room which drowns out any PC fan noise. I'm just concerned with airflow, I still can't figure out if it's better to have 120x25 fans that almost touch the GPU or 120x15 fans that give some room for the air to move up to and around the GPU. I'd love to see that tested with the A12x25 vs A12x15 in the M1.
Also, the FE cards have somewhat unusual fan placement with a large space between the two fans, I wonder if they align with the M1's fans.
Wait til you get the card and test without anything extra installed.. You may find you might not need the fans. I'm still on the fence about having fans below the GPU..
...just to play devil's advocate, do these other 650+ watts power supplies fit in the case with a ODD?
im seeing the SX800, PE-750, SX650, and SX700 over at PCpartpicker
So basically the accelero 3 might fit the 2080, but as it goes more on the back, it might not fit inside the ncase.
Any one knows how much clearance there is at the back of the accelero3 with a 1080 inside a ncase?
Looks like we would need 1 cm may be.
RE: power supply size
My old Silverstone 450W SFX Gold PSU powered a 4770k and Vega 56 so I'm sure you will be fine with the Corsair 600W.
That said, Silverstone has a 650W SFX PSU and I'm very happy with mine.
The heatpipes will clear easily. The only issue that you might run into is in orange in the pictures below.
nice, anything at all an SFX-L psu would conflict with?
i think i read long GPUS, but EVGAs arent very long
would the PE-750 be the best performer noise wise?
I also didn't want to do crazy OC like I wrote in my build log and you will be able to do the same easily. Just enable XMP so your memory runs at the speed it was mean to and you can set all core to 4.7 without worry and without touching any other setting and you're done.i've never OC'd anything before, i wanted to try the CPU but only if my temps allow it. (8700k)
im fine with the factory OC + GPU boost, im aiming for 3440x1440 100 fps
im def not going for anything crazy like 5.0ghz on the cpu or past 2000 on the gpu, just trying to get my parts right so i dont run into any problems.
hey i was looking into measurements and the 2080 ti XC is the exact measurements as the 1080ti SC2 expect the 2080ti is 4mm shorter (height wise).
shouldnt be a problem with an accellero assuming the 1080ti fits good
Yeah, because the motherboard is considered horizontal respect to the graphics card (pretend you are standing on the motherboard, in other words, and the gpu will be so high off the surface of the motherboard).But if you aint changing the cooler, it does not matter, and it will probably fit, as long as it is not too wide (from mobo to case side) (I guess that is what you and manufactores call height, eventhough GFXs arent standing that way in a case).
Regarding EVGA's new 20-series 2.75 slot cards -- I'm wondering, if you remove the shroud, could you fit regular 120x25mm fans underneath, like with the Accelero?
any reason you prefer the 2.75 slot card? theres a 2 slot 2080/2080ti
Actually, I wrote Arctic an email asking if the Accelero will fit on 2080 and 2080 Ti cards and they said yes, however, the VRAM heatsinks won't fit because they are closer to the die in this generation. However, if you keep the the EVGA midplate (which it seems like you'll be able to this time as those pesky 4 tabs protruding into the cooler area have been removed), that should be sufficient to cool the VRAM and VRM.
