if my gpu wasn't silent i would probably buy this but im a new time builder i don't trust myself opening a rtx 2060 super because i can't spend another 600 bucks

So that was part of the conclusion of the video - just buy a card with a quieter cooler to begin with. 


R9 3900x; 64GB RAM | RTX 2080 | 1.5TB Optane P4800x

1TB ADATA XPG Pro 8200 SSD | 2TB Micron 1100 SSD

If you're willing to tinker and put in the elbow grease, would you recommend this over just slapping a CPU cooler on the graphics card?

 

(I'm biased because I already used a CPU cooler, inspired by the mod you did some time ago)

If you need the form factor to fit in a case, yes. Otherwise what you have now is equally effective imo, just be sure to have a heatsink on the other components as necessary

I did that with a Arctic Accelero Xtreme III because my GTX 1070 Palit DUAL was annoyingly noisy in summer. Now it never exceeds 65°C and is inaudible even at 35°C ambient. But due to the complicated install I brought my card to a professional shop to let the cooler get installed.

 

I hope I can reuse it for an eventual RTX 3070 because once you go silent GPU you can't go back.

 

How does the noise of the Raijintek + Noctuas compare to the Strix cooler @ColinLTT ?

Well, its two noctuas running. Its pretty darn quiet, but the full story lies in how effectively ALL the components are cooled, and as you saw in the video inadequate component cooling isn't a good idea - that PCB got really hot, really fast, and I wouldn't recommend running without heatsinks epoxied on the components or otherwise. The strix cooler, while louder, effectively cools everything, and that's saying something.

I stopped watching when I saw the heatsinks on the chokes instead of the MOSFETS. Was that ever corrected? Not really a fair video if it isn't even install it correctly.

Yes, that was a mistake, but the heatsinks fell off anyway, so the placement of the heatsinks really isnt the issue here regardless.

Yeah that makes sense, that's also why the store had me sit tight for 45 minutes waiting for the glue to dry when they attached my Xtreme III. The reason I asked, GPU noise was always a big problem for me as I live in a attic flat and with me wanting to replace my GTX 1070 with a RTX 3060 or 3070 I have to decide if I simply buy a higher-end AIB model and sell my GTX 1070 with the Xtreme III or if I pick the cheapest 3060/3070 model and then pay the store again to transfer the Xtreme III and restore the GTX 1070 to stock.

 

The latter will obviously more costly and annoying but may be worth it depending on how silent AIB 30xx cards will be I guess.

Does anyone know about putting the cooler on a strix 2080ti? In the video I know linus questions the compatibility... is that a concern? I would be interested in something like this as the strix 2080ti is fine, but definitely gets loud compared to aftermarket coolers (on past GPUs I've used the accelero).
