We want to build some water cooled PCs with the RTX 3090, but just how small of a radiator can we use and still have reasonable temps?

    Wait just a minute there Linus, you just said the rez and pump combo was good at removing bubbles due to vortex mambo jumbo 6:04 but at the 11:13 mark, we clearly see someone stabbing it with a pair of scissors to remove bubbles. Essplain please! Also I'd like to segway into begging for a PC even though you just gave one away and said you wouldn't ever do it again. Pretty please I have a dying goldfish and it was his last wish.

    Still, if you can go for 14cm fans and corresponding radiators, it will be a better choice than 12cm fans and corresponding radiators.

    OK. You've found the obvious 🙂. Now we need to know what would be needed for a heavily OC 10900k (275W) plus a shunt modded OC Strix 3090. I haven't got my Strix 3090 yet, but have a 360mm plus a 140mm thick radiator with 'server' fans on my OC 2080ti at the moment. Any suggestions on whether this will handle potentially up to 1000W?

    My Alphacool st30 x-flow 360 rad is essentially silent with my fans, asus rog cpu/m.2 monoblock, and an alphacool cape Cora passive radiator so I don’t even need fans. And I only use 3 of the 6 cape Cora pipes, making it about the width of a regular radiator. I’m sure I could add my Gpu to the loop with no change in temps but I don’t have to, the whole system stays at room temp even with a blower style card. Open air case ftw.

    Just get a 560 Monsta and call it a day (what I did). That cools just about anything possibly made even with just 800 rpm LL140's. Better to be overkill than underkill.

    I need to water-cool my RTX3090. It’s overheated 3 times on me during destiny on the highest settings. I’m running 3840x2160 resolution and it does fine until I start doing a strike or nightfall where there’s just a ton of stuff going down then it gets too hot

    I have a 9700k and a 5700 XT in an NZXT 200i (ITX mini), both water cooled. I have a 2 fan rad in the front, and a single in the back. Both are the EK slims. I have the 5700 XT core pegging 2050 all the time and 9700k at 5.0. The CPU will sometimes get up to 65 and the gpu stays around 55. There isn't a lot of air flow in the case, so I'm pretty happy with results.

  • pt42sundevils

    • svampebob007

      If you use Firefox there's an add-on called sponsor skip... it's literally made for RSloft like Linus (not really that bad), it skips hard coded sponsors, adds, "please subscribe", "thanks pateron". It's really neat because some RSloft have 25% of their video dedicated to sponsors, please subscribe, check out my merch/patreon/podcast, they are literally becoming like TV where you get 15minut adbreak per 1h of "content", for refrence LTT that has 12M subscribers has 9% of this video being sponsors, self promotion and "end credit". That's actually not that bad, but still it's nice to skip this useless shit automatically when I would have skipped it manually either-way.
