Great idea, I was skeptical a 120 mm would fit neatly but it does since the card is 138 mm wide. Temps seem to have dropped by 10c and it's a low noise Antec two cool so no noticeable change in noise floor.
The xoc 1000w bios disables all overcurrent protections and is not recommended for anything but ln2 benching. Just a word of caution.I'm planning on slapping a waterblock on it, with a 420+360+240 radiator setup, so heat load isn't an issue, its mostly down to how fast the waterblock can get the heat out of the die and into the three radiators of water. So I'm thinking beyond 500w is fine, 1000w may be a stretch on water but 600-750?
Yeah $105 vs $190. I ordered a few things at the same time that already showed up. I think I missed them shipping it because of Chinese new year.^^ Only 6 more weeks to go!
Seriously though, that's the one thing I hate about ordered anything via ALI. I've had some things arrive in less than 3 weeks.... or take up to 10 weeks.
And some things simply never arrive - luckily they've been good about refunds. Hopefully you got a good price for it! Would probably have arrived faster
via an Amazon reseller, but I bet at a higher price: https://www.amazon.com/Bykski-Coverage-Backplate-Founders-N-RTX3090FE-X-V2/dp/B08P2T3DXB
