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?

THERE'S A VISE 2 FEET BEHIND YOU ALEX! It hurts me every time you work on something that should have rigidity and those damn clamps that are made for wood working are used. Get some soft jaws and hold stuff properly please! But I almost think you're doing it to troll everyone. You get a better finish, less effort is used, and less time is taken when work is rigid, and you're a really smart dude, so I am leaning towards this being an ongoing joke for us shop guys to get triggered over. If so, you got me!

For the folks that never water cooled ba video card before video cards when water cooled with a full cover GPU block become completely different animals they aren't like CPUs at all because they don't have an IHS on the die It's die directly to water block or heat sink And even with the biggest of heat sinks GPUs create a lot of focused heat And that's where full cover water blocks shine the most and That's why when you water cool a video card you can expect the temperatures to be cut in halfgraphics cards and water are like chocolate and peanut butter they're a match made in heaven

My 3090 rotec card will idle at 23c then after 10mins of gaming, boost clock around 1875mhz. Temp at 65c with a triple slim EK rad (it's on it's own loop) do you have magic water or something lmao

Funny video it was. I have installed EKWB-block to my Asus rog strix RTX3090 and it works perfectly and block fitted as always, perfectly. I hate cutting thermal pads, otherwise installing block went quite easily. I use 2 radiators (35mm and 24mm) both with 2 fans. Overclocked to 2050MHz, card heats up to 66°C when overstressed using furmark-bench.

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.
