nice edit on the scrolling BZ RTX20 vid list intro BZ/Steve/Andrew/Patrick/Crew, I didn't realize so many retakes of the same 8 phase (dual feed?) VRM had been done on RTX20 cards, lol. Nvidia must have locked down the Power specs even more than I thought. That or AIB's don't want to invest that much in a GPU chip with profit margins as slim as RTX, lol. Great vid Buildzoid/Steve and crews. B)

I wonder why NVidia is requiring such current and thermal overkill on the VRM? Price jokes aside, they aren’t in the habit of adding components for no reason, especially in a reference design. I mean, you could use only one power stage per phase and it would still probably be overkill for ambient cooling. I really wonder what all the extra hardware is doing that NVidia thinks is so important.

+Mark Pearce Sorry, actually it's MX-2 not 5 I use. (I just checked.) Yes, it's just a habit I got into and it has caused me no harm so far so I am going to stick with it. Better to be safe than sorry I always think. And it only takes about half an hour, tops. Or about an hour if I do the GPU as well.

+yogibear2k10 So you use MX-5 which shows no performance degredation over a year and you change it at least twice a year to look after your components? What about the risk of mishandling the components? I'll not judge as PCs are personal. It just seems excessive.

Ok this has really been bothering me. Why can't GN take some half decent pictures. Sure Buildzoid already knows what's on there, but at least it would look a little bit cleaner and professional top down. On a cleaner mat.

I know buildzoids videos are 1h and so but can you do a 10 to 15m recap of the big video on GN, my honest opinion. I mean i went to the end of the video to see "Conclusion" and see if it's good or not but not even that.. :( I mean i love Buildzoid and he is a great guy and tech tuber.

Who else wanted Buildzoid to just erase the thermal paste on the card? It _can_ be done, too through some layer trickery: With nobody in the room, take a picture with paste. Then clean it, taking another picture with nobody in the room. Then have the TP layer on top and just erase the area -around- within the -paste- silicon.

what is your consideration for therm "low end"? and budget? and generation? I personally would say about nvidia's line anything from 750 series and above/newer, that has at least one 6pin connector (otherwise it has no value for hw mods on it when OC).

The way you write comments make you seem like an ass who thinks anyone who is smart is a pretentious nerd. Maybe your stupid. See, this isn't fun. This "dude" is an incredibly smart and nice person. He is also very willing to help people who don't know as much as he does learn, as he explains many times in his channel. He is very opinionated about what is good and what is crap by oems. Maybe that's what you are hearing. But often he nails those criticisms.

+Geer Beer Only rich people are going to justify spending 1400 dollars on a video card, come on. Who in the middle class or low income bracket is going to put down 1400 dollars on a card? And from all the latest video's from GN about the 2080 failures, sounds like EVGA rushed that card out to production without doing proper QC. The truth is, you can get a plenty high end enough video card for 300 dollars that will do tons of hardcore gaming and rendering.

I've seen posts saying the FTW3 (at least at the time of posting) has/had the highest power limit of all the 2080ti cards. Based on this, is that just a BIOS thing, and not due to the VRMs or other hardware being better on this card vs other custom PCBs? Or is there more to it? (Or are the posts just wrong or out of date?)

Not sure, but I do own a FTW3 and it does have power limit of 373W, usually stays around 350-370W(in most games with my OC and 1440p 144hz screen) i also seen it pull 380W according to px1. Power limit goes to 124%. 300W is the base. Thats all i can say, and from what i heard and seen most cards have power limit of around 300-330W. Might be different now tho.

At this point it would be nice to have a build proposition either by GN or Buildzoid. And I mean screw the 1000 or whatever dollar builds. Give us an opinion (or recommendation, whatever you can get away with) of a build using the BEST QUALITY component. Just go like: -This MB because VRMs, the GPU over there because Ray Tracing and RGB, that PSU cos it doesn't blow up etc.

Or somehting like a rating system inside of a spreadsheet so you have easy access to it and don't have to search a ton of videos (or articles) but can get a quick overview of which components are garbage and which are really good. Maybe with a short comment (not short in Buildzoids sense but actually short. Like 1 sentence ot something like that). That would be really nice.
