Taking about asking. I noticed at the end of this video you talked about thermal pads making the backplate functional. If I remeber correctly the ROG Strix GeForce 1080 Ti OC does not function like this (the GPU I have). Is it viable to put thermal pads on there to make it functional? And maybe you could test if this has any positive effect on the cooling?

Do u think NZXT cooling bracket (G12) will work on the card? to slap a AIO cooler on it?

Actually, the cooler is touching the memory, as you can see by the curved indents on the obviously placed thermal pad.

This overwhelming feeling when you switch from a 1.25x speed (or 1.5x even) Buildzoid video to a (thus also sped up) gamer's nexus one. I always feel like something's off for the whole intro before I remember the video speed :)

3-slot card? At that point why don’t they just use an AIO watercooler? I remember back when GPU’s were single slot, and then they all changed to double (and prevented you from using other card slots). Now it’s 3-slots?

Is this thing worth water cooling? I know its quieter, but what about overclocking? I know thermals aren’t an issue with these cards when overclocking, it’s more so a power limitation. As far as I know this has 19 phase and a bios that pushes a bit more “oomph” for the card. Sucks the only block is the hydro copper at the moment but EK said they are designing a block now. Hopefully out in January (this is according to an email from EK customer service).

Hey do you want to hear a joke? This card costs 2k euro´s over in the Netherlands. That´s almost 2.3k dollars. Literally costs more than my entire PC (which was 1900). Overpriced garbage.

Thanks for putting a 3 slot bracket on the card, EVGA. If it's going to block 3 slots anyway, might as well take advantage. No idea why it took someone so long to do it.

Maybe I am wrong, but I feel like with how much these cards cost now, the heatsinks should be solid copper, seriously, it would only cost a few dollars

So if a card is 3 slots, can you still connect 2 of them together in NVlink/SLI?

Is Kryonaut any good for repasting the 'thin and light' gaming laptops that are currently prevalent? With the i7 8750 and 1060/1070, they often seem to run hot, and I notice that Kryonaut specifically calls out that it halts the drying process 'up to 80°C'. Got a new laptop currently being shipped, and fully expecting to have to repast to get the best out of it so been trying to decide on the best stuff to use. Had been planning on using some MX-4.

seems from a graphics cooling perspective, PC's are built upside down! do they make cases designed upside down for better graphics cooling?

Always a pleasure to watch Steve do a teardown! I wish there were more of them (not only for GPUs, but for MoBos and other computer hardware as well). REGARDING THE FAN: I believe the model number can be broken down as follows... The first two digits ("PL") simply stand for Power Logic, the next ("D") is the series; this is followed by the (3-digit) size and (2-digit) thickness, then either "B" (for Ball bearing) or "S" (for Sleeve bearing); lastly, we have the voltage and "L", "M", or "H" (Low/Medium/High) RPM. Thus, a PLD09220S12H is a Power Logic D-series 92mm × 20mm sleeve-bearing fan designed for 12 volts and high RPM.

Just bought one of those magnifying lenses for around £10. You should find the OEM for them and work out a deal for one with your logo on for your shop. It looks super useful.

Hello I have a question, about antivirus and anti spyware adware and malwares. I currently have McAfee paid but it feels like its not rly enough, and since its ending soon what would u suggest as most safest protection what are your thoughts, might be combination of 2-3 programs like main antivirus and some extra small programs to go with it, because it feels weird also when I try to type in Kaspersky in my browser it just gets stuck, I tried with Microsoft Edge, newest mozzila, opera, chrome all those have same problem just freezes when I type Kaspersky into search bar ant type enter, so maybe you could help figure out whats causing this ?

The heatsink on this card looks very similar to the one on my MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio which is another triple fan 2.75 slot GPU. I'd love to see a teardown of that card to compare the two. Keep the awesome videos coming Tech Jesus!
