  1. Using MSI Afterburner to raise my Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC's power limit, noticed that it results in higher average boost clocks, I want to max out the power limit to 111% rather than the stock 100% but I'm concerned that doing so will put too much stress on the VRMS etc on the GPU's board. VRMs are actively cooled by both the main Heatsink as well as thermal pads connecting to the backplate. Is this safe?
  2. aah alright, thanks for the tip. I may choose to just have it set to a certain fan speed 24/7 since it'll be maxed at 1550 RPM anyway, therefore making almost no noise... I'll figure something out. Thanks.
  3. So I'd just be better off hooking it up to one of the mobo headers and looking for a software solution / or running them at a set (but sufficient) speed?
  4. I'm putting together my own fan/shroud combination for my RTX 2070 super because 1) I can and 2) I like to be able to choose what fans I want to run, in this case Noctua NF-A9's, not whatever OEM gigabyte decides to deal with. My card is the Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC, for those curious. I have an electrical question. Each of the fans currently installed from the factory on the Graphics card is rated at 12V, 0.55 A. The fans I have chosen, Noctua NF-A9's, each are rated at 12V, 0.1A. I'm taking this to mean they draw LESS power in terms of overall wattage than the stock fans do, so theoretically there shouldn't be an electrical problem with overdraw. I'm hooking all three up to a Deepcool 4-way PWM hub for case fans and then attaching this hub to the graphics card 4-pin connector via one of Noctua's low noise adaptor cables and a converter (or I'll solder up a converter myself, IDK) For those who are more experienced with basic DC circuit problems than I am, can you help me shed light on this? I can give more detail wherever needed. Thank you. (Alternatively I may try to find a software solution to this problem and just use one of the mobo fan headers)
  5. the GPU's jumper is 4-pin PWM but yeah actually I forgot about waterblocks, and I never hear any complaints about those...
  6. I'm going to use 3x noctua 92mm fans in place of the triple fan shroud that comes on my RTX 2070 Super Gigabyte Gaming OC 3x, by mounting them on a PCI bracket mount and connecting them to the PC main power via a 4 way fan splitter. Everything's gonna be great EXCEPT I don't know if my graphics card is going to shit itself when it realizes there are no fans connected to its header; I'm only going to be running the Noctua fans off system main power not the GPU header and at a constant speed. Is my GPU going to poop its pants when it detects no fan connection or will it simply display 'no reading' etc in the monitoring software?
  7. so, basically, I'd have to set a higher RPM percentage to get similar RPM with the new fans as they have a lower RPM ceiling correct? As for worse thermals, I have a lot of headroom, the cooler on the card (RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC) is borderline overkill for this GPU and I rarely cross 61c on the stock fan profile
  8. Hi, My gigabyte windforce 3x card originally came fitted with fans that are about 80mm diameter and are rated at 12V, 0.55A I ordered a replacement set of slightly different model gigabyte fans that are 78mm diameter, use the same mounting holes, and are rated at 12V, 0.35A before I found out that my stock fans ran at 0.55A As I am essentially running a lower power fan (not a problem because on stock fan profile the card is stupidly cool anyways) I assume there shouldn't be a problem in regards to the rated current difference? or is it going to cause problems like blowing out the fan motors etc when at 100% load? or does this just mean I have a lower RPM ceiling to work with? Thanks.
  9. Is it safe to run GPU fan(s) till they stop working? I have a set of spare fans for my Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super (warranty return not really an option) and the original fans, two of them have a verry slight wobble to them at low speed and the middle one makes super slight noises (not normal fan noise) above 48% speed. I have the spares as a backup in case any of the fans fail but, I was wondering if it should be safe to just run the graphics card as I normally would until a fan(s) fail (that is, if they ever do) and then put the replacements in? Thanks for any responses, a bit of a dumb question :#
  10. it definitely visually seems to be wobbling and not just sticker effect, but as I said yeah there is no noise, no clicking or otherwise.
  11. I bought a set of three off Gpufanreplacement.com, 78mm which is the size that comes standard, they're unmarked fans but they appear to be the same as the ones fitted standard so could be OEM. Really just for peace of mind, I doubt anything will go wrong with this ones' fans but if something does then I have the parts needed to fix it.
  12. Just got a brand new RTX 2070 Gaming OC from gigabyte, one of the three fans (closest to the display output side) has verrry slight wobble which gets less noticeable the higher speed the fan runs at. It's not making any noise and is running fine. Getting the card fixed or replaced under warranty is not something I really want to do so, is this likely to be much of a problem or is this fine? If not, where can I order a replacement fan as I'd much rather go through that process myself rather than mucking around with the retailer (or god forbid Gigabyte's RMA team especially at this time) over what is otherwise a perfectly fine card.
  13. I’ve run this setup through several different calculators and I think I’m fine but my setup is as follows: Ryzen 5 3600 4ghz not OC’ing 2x 8gb DDR4-3200 Asus Prime B450 Plus mobo 4 case fans RTX 2070 Super my power supply is the EVGA Supernova 650 G3 80+ gold, and I’m just wondering seeing as I just upgraded from a 1660S to a 2070S if it should be enough for a stable system. thanks.
  14. and as an added note, as GamersNexus mentioned, the retention force on most CPU coolers is well high enough to just push aside any excessive amount anyway, so unless you go some stupidly creative flavour of overboard, too much actually doesn't do much detrimental... to cooling performance at least.
