Maingear - Custom Loop - Vybe

Hi Everyone,

 

First up, thank you very much for taking the time to review my post.

 

I just picked up my new Maingear system today with a custom loop preinstalled. I'm a little concerned that one of the tubes is resting on the backside of the RTX 3090. Even if just used it for gaming and I didn't want to mine crypto (which I do - with NiceHash), I know that the VRAM can get quite toasty. If this were a build that you purchased, would you try to have them to re-loop it so that it doesn't rest on the GPU the way this does?

 

Thanks,

- E

If you are that worried about it just put some foam in between the tube and the gpu backplate

 

Otherwise should be ok

For long terms use, yes you probably only need to cut a couple's millimeters on one side of the tube

I wouldn't really worry about it being dangerous or anything, but I personally would end up either having them or personally redoing that bend myself because it would bug the hell out of me. It's one of those things that is noticeable enough that someone should have caught it before you received it. You probably paid $4000-5000 on it, more than the price of a half-decent used car, I'd expect it to be near perfect.

Thanks for your replies, folks! Visually it doesn't annoy me too much. I'm more concerned about how that soft-tubing will handle the heat with moderate use. This machine is my daily driver so - at the very least - I game, I produce content (audio/video).

 

Ideally, I'd like to mine with it too but, I stopped Nicehash when it pushed the VRAM to 100C (which was pretty quick). I can't imagine the soft-tubing would be able to withstand directly contact with 100C, right?

 

Update: After a couple of hours of Cyberpunk and max settings, temp hit up to 84C

Well yeah, for a day or two it's probably and maybe survive but its probably start "degrade" overtime
