I am a proud owner of a Corsair Carbide Air 540. I have a Corsair H115i mounted on the top as exhaust. I recently got fortunate enough to purchase the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING. My question is would it's 240mm radiator + plus fit into my system in the front? And if so should the fans intake or exhaust? Thanks
Hi all, Been looking to pick up a waterblock for my strix 3090 and have been leaning towards the xg7 over the ek vector. My only real concern is the lack of thermal pads over other areas when compared to the ek backplate, or even the stock cooler which has pads over the back positions of most of the power delivery components. From what I've googled it seems like on the previous generations the backplate has used either 0.5mm or 1mm pads. My plan would be to use the ekwb guide to determine the thickness for the other areas, and use the xg7 vram pads as a reference. So if the xg7 stock backplate thermal pads are 1mm, then using the ek backplate install guide, those vram pads are 1.5mm, then I could assume that taking the difference and applying it to all the other areas should give me an accurate thickness. 2mm thermal pads on the ek would then be 1.5mm on the xg7 and so on. If anyone can confirm the thickness it would be great, or if you have other suggestions I'm open to hear those too. Thanks!
I installed a second GTX-1080 in my 600Q case and now both are running too hot. The case has the standard single front fan and back fan. I'm looking for advice on whether to add a second intake on the front or add a second intake fan on the bottom (or both) to get the temp of the GPUs down. I am using this rig to fold so the CPU remains mostly idle. The air coming off the rear exhaust fan is cool. The back slugs behind the GPUs are super hot. Seems like the case and current fan configuration is not getting the heat out of the top area. I've read reviews that the case is good on cooling so I assume it is something with the fan configuration. Also the air coming off of the PS exhaust is cool as well New to PC building and rather not get into liquid cooling if I do not have to. Thanks, Kof
It's been a while since we've done a how-to video, so we've recorded Jeff Checchi installing a Hydro Series H60 liquid CPU cooler. The original Hydro Series H50 earned praise for its ease of installation. With the H60, we've made further refinements to make installation even simpler.
