  1. Are you sure it's a reference pcb because all I can find about your card says that it's a custom pcb. The model ending with GC seems to be based on the 2080 reference pcb (still slightly different) and can be compatible with some blocks. Your GD model however is a custom pcb because of the different IO (GD model has no Virtuallink USB Type C port). You can clearly see the difference between the GC / GD / Reference pcb in the pictures. The GC and reference are very similar while your GD model uses rounded caps and has a different layout altogether.
  2. Corsair Hydro X radiators are not the same as the HW labs gts, they are actually known as the HW Labs L-series rads (or LS). They also supply the exact same rads to bitspower (Leviathan series) which has been on the market for a long time, so you can find a lot more data when you check the Leviathan series. The L-series have a standard form factor (width of the rad) like most rads on the market whereas the gts is about 15mm wider. Keep that in mind since this might interfere with your case or mobo, even when they are supposed to be compatible. As an example my phanteks evolv atx normally can fit a 280 rad (standard form factor) in the front, however it does not fit a 280gts (unless I modify/cut the psu shroud). Fin density is the same, but there is still a difference in performance because of this size difference. Like I said before, you can basically check older reviews between the gts and bitspower leviathan or L-series to find out how these stack up. https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/5
  3. Replacing the cable won't do much for you if it actually fried the usb header on the waterblock, which is more likely than the cable going bad since you plugged it into a 12v fan header.
  4. By mistake you mean the orientation of your fans on the cpu cooler?
  5. You sure mate? First thing I find on their product page:
  6. Don't have any experience with these style of gaming chairs, but I did hear some good things about their titan series. Though I wouldn't pick a chair based on someone else's experience, everyone has different preferences. Best would be to be able to try them out, but that's not always possible or only for a limited time (in stores) unless they let you return it.
  7. I feel like this would be the perfect chair for you: https://secretlab.eu/pages/overwatch (in terms of looks, don't know about the ergonomics)
  8. I feel like this might cause your issues, place it directly on top of the box. I've seen warnings not to put components on top of esd bags, you're taking it to the next level and power the motherboard on (with pins touching the bag).
  9. Neither... Edit: I responded before you added the third option
  10. Yes, limiting your fps to the max refresh rate of your monitor should get rid of the tearing. Most games allow you to cap it within the setting or use vsync (which can cause input lag). Since you use an amd card, you can also use a frame limiter like amd's FRTC. Another thing to note, freesync is actually disabled when you reach the refresh rate of your monitor since they are matched already, which in some cases can still cause tearing. Most people usually limit their fps 1 or 2 lower (so 73-74fps) so freesync is always enabled.
  11. Freesync does not limit your fps, vsync does. Freesync/gsync simply matches the monitor hz to the fps you're getting within a certain range. Max freesync range = max hz of your monitor! Since your monitor only goes up to 75hz, freesync will only work up to 75fps. Anything above and you'll get tearing again and wouldn't benefit you anyways since your monitor can't display above 75hz. If you dip below 75hz, freesync will kick in and the monitor will match the fps so you don't get tearing (unless you go below the min. range).
  12. I prefer to hide as much as possible, even behind the motherboard tray. Here is the backside of my personal build. Not counting the main components and front IO, I have: 6 fans, a fan hub, nzxt hue+ with 6 strips, d5 pump and a sata ssd in my system.
