Mini Itx 3090?

You don't think a FE 3080 would be okay?

It would be borderline on 85C. It should be fine but a 3090 will definitely not.

Budget (including currency): N/A

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Any

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

I currently have a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv TG Mini ITX case. It's a dual slot case and I currently have a 2080 ti evga black GPU. The length is fine, but the height of the card is what is a tight squeeze. (See pictures below). I was wondering if anyone knew what my options will be for a 3090, or if I should just for-go the option entirely. I did happen to find a 3090 that is a dual slot card (see link below) and it looks slim enough that height won't be an issue, but it is a blower card. I don't want to get it if the temps are going to be insane. My 2080ti reaches around 81c under max load in my case, which is toasty, but definitely acceptable. Is there a better option that I'm missing? I don't think I've seen any other dual slot 3090s. Even a lot of dual slot 3080s look a little too tall for my case to accommodate. Just looking for some feedback. Thanks :)

That looks like a terrible idea. That 3090 is going to thermal throttle hard. The 2080 blower style already thermal throttles hard.

You could get a bigger case but I don't think its advisable to get a 3090 for such a small form factor. 

I will recommend an NHu12s (or an NHd15 (maybe)) for your PC build. Quote or @ me @Prodigy_Smit for me to see your replies.

Well rtx 3090 generates lots of heat so you might have to think about that.

 

I haven't been able to find a lot of information about 3090 temperatures in mini itx cases. Even if temps are stable in larger cases, it doesn't necessarily apply to mine. What kind of temperatures do you think I'd expect to see? 90c? Higher than that?

That was my concern, I thought it would be a neat thing to do, but it just might not be practical.

What games are you looking to play? Because the 2080 ti is more than enough. But if you REALLY want a 30xx series card, then I would wait for more options to show up or get a custom water cooled card. so you have enough room.

Exactly. Sorry to say but besides water cooling you will not be able to upgrade the card in that case with a 3080 or higher.

You don't think a FE 3080 would be okay? It's a dual slot 3080 that should fit, but I wouldn't really feel comfortable putting something in my case that would reach temps higher than 85C.

Anything and everything, it's not that I really need a 3090, just like a 70 year old man doesn't need a Ferrari, but it's just wanting to have it. I wasn't able to have these things in my early 20s, so now that I can afford them it's nice to splurge haha.

 

Edit: I don't know that a Hybrid card would fit due to the 240mm AIO only being able to fit on the top of my case. It would block the the radiator of the hyrbid card on the front or back. 😕

Create an AIO for just your GPU.

haha, i get that. If you have the money, you should go for a water cooled one, so then you have enough room + it looks great :)

Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I may just consider a 3080 if the temps are manageable and rebuild next gen in a larger form factor, although the mini itx has been a lot of fun. :)

It is possible. 

 

 

 

Maybe I'll consider a different case then. That's impressive, I can't believe the guy was getting 68C. The Enthoo ITX suffers from mediocre thermals.
