Passively cooled RTX 2060 SUPER?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello again, I would like to get RTX 2060 SUPER that would be passively cooled, but after doing some research, ended up with a conclusion that it's not really possible.. Is that true, or are there some options for it, that I could consider?

You could do the "CPU air cooler on GPU" Type mod and adjust the power limit accordingly to control the temperature, if you wish so

The 2060 outputs a ton of heat. The most powerful GPU to be passively cooled by retailers is a 1050 ti, if you purchased something like a Raijintek Morpheus II then you could venture a passive 1660 or something if you can live with a somewhat strict power limit, but I doubt a 2060 could manage, especially with those RT cores doing their thing.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I just might do that, is that my only option? That would require a pretty big case though, should not be too big of a problem..

Well, not really willing to go lower with my GPU, best I could do is get non rtx card, but that's pretty much it..  I thought that there aren't any options for cooling it passively, @Jurrunio idea is pretty interesting, but I have some reservations about it working properly enough, I might be lacking of some information on his idea, but might consider it still.

The Raijintek Morpheus I suggested is basically the same thing, but in a GPU form factor for more compatibility inside a case.

Just looked that up, I might just ditch the rtx and get like 1080, would have to get beefier psu, but that might be a nice option, thanks.

generally the 1080 can run within a similar power envelope as a 2060. A 450 watt can handle a 1080 and Ryzen 5 3600, what unit do you currently have?

You are right, checked that just now, thought I would need more watts, but looks like it will be enough, have not bought a psu still, but will be buying Straight Power 11 550W or Whisper M 650W and 5 3600.

^^^ I've ran a 980 Ti and i5 2400 off a 450W PSU. 980 Ti is a 250W card (AIB ones with a maxed power target would pull a little more though I think, I had an MSI Gaming 980 Ti, beefy boi), IIRC the 1080 is a 200-225W card. 

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-pascal,4572-10.html

Actually it's 170-180W or so, you have to push a good OC to get it above that (to about 206W).

That'll do it. If you're alright with non modular, the Bitfenix Formula gold 550W is an excellent unit.

of course you could go for smaller heatsink from Raijintek, but then it will cool the GPU worse and force you to run a even lower power limit. Also, by passive, means relying on case fans. I myself not a fan for doing that in a case at all for this reason.

You can, you just need a large enough heat sink to soak up the heat.   Im not smart enough to calculate what you need though

Depending on the case, you could go with a really beefy cooler for the CPU and the GPU and make sure the fins are parallel, then run a single 200mm fan at a low rpm to gently push air through, basically semi-passive. Would be really really quiet while still having reasonable temps. 

I know Snazzy Labs made a totally passive hackintosh, I don't know what spec he used though:

In my head I thought, maybe a D15 from Noctua hooked to the GPU, but what about the VRM's - well I have a card I cooled using little heat sinks on the VRMs but I rely on the intake/exhaust pattern of air in my case to keep them cool, but that's an old R7 260x not a 2060 power delivery (water cooled just the GPU die with an aluminum block for $3)

 

And even then I don't think the D15 is enough surface area to be completely passive at all.  And you would need an open air case because any air trapped would continue to heat up until you hit thermal equilibrium which would overheat given the components we are talking about.

Yeah, I do know a guy has used NH-D15s for both the CPU and GPU, but he still used the fans:

F. Defo watch them when you get home though, they're really well done. The second one especially, IIRC he builds a custom copper plating/heatpipe setup (a pretty simple one but it works) to pull heat from the VRMs into the NH-D15. Used a Zotac Mini card I think.

How about putting NH-D15 or Le Grand Macho RT on to that GPU, just like what DIYPerks did?

 

You need to 3D print the mounting hardware tho.. but the result is awesome..

^^^ They aren't passive coolers, but the Noctua fans on the NH-D15/D15S are extremely, extremely quiet at lower rpms, I assume the LGMRT ones would be too (never had one, they wouldn't be compatible with many of my boards).

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, LGA1366 Xeons, and X chipsets: @WhisperingKnickers.

^^^ They aren't passive coolers, but the Noctua fans on the NH-D15/D15S are extremely, extremely quiet at lower rpms, I assume the LGMRT ones would be too (never had one, they wouldn't be compatible with many of my boards).

LGMRT is a semi-passive air cooler, so he can go passive with this one without its fan.

Thank you all for the responses @Jurrunio @Tristerin @Zando Bob@PotatoCanDo! I will be very busy for a bit,so won't be getting into it for a few days, but I have all the info now, so will do my research, might go for Noctua with a fan, not sure for now, but that might work, although I prefer not using one, but Noctua fans are really quiet, so will look into it.
