    With the rumoured specs of the new generation there will be 500-600W TDP cards on the market.
    Will those eat up 6 slots?
    Or the manufacturers will finally decide to go for only AIO/FC water coolers?

    And still shitty 15MM thick fans.

    It's time we move to traditional 25MM fans for GPUs as well. SLI is dead, no excuses anymore.

    Time was you could get a nice 300 W enthusiast card with a double-slot cooler (5970 anyone?)

    Well, I called it. At this price point and for the size of this GPU, it really should have come with an AIO. This is stupid.

    Using a Lian-Li GB-001 for that, should be bundled with all GPUs/Motherboards.

    A point worth making, something is getting a fair amount of stress from the mass of the cooler.

    I use an HDMI blank plug (the card comes with) to provide additional support for my HUGE 3090, also 4 slot, by positioning it under the cooler against whatever is sticking up from the motherboard.
    ie the load is spread between the PCIE slot and a heatsink on my motherboard, making the card stand vertical
    The weight of the card compresses the HDMI plug to give very rigid support.
    Note, my PCs motherboard is flat on cardboard (to protect the table and motherboard), not held vertically. This means the gfx card is vertical.

    Even though my gaming PC is open air (on the lower shelf of a table) with no case to secure the gfx card, it is held solid in place by the sheer mass of the card and the extra load distribution.
    If you do similar, use something appropriately sized to suit your card and motherboard to keep the card vertical and not stress a small point on the motherboard. The heatsink on my mobo spreads the load.

    That said your aorus 3090 extreme is probably closer to 3090ti than anything else. If im not wrong its also 3.5slot cooler beast but strangely not that effective compared to lower tier Eagle variant.

    Fan noise is pretty low despite quite high speed so I suspect less airflow than similar variants.
    I'm happy with how it performs.

    And yet people slammed AMD for power consumption of Fury X or Vega 64.
    And they are still lower then a 3070ti ROFL.

    My 3080 with a strict power limit that I can't get around (without modifying/changing the BIOS) still sucks down up to 375W. Would have been much lower if they used TSMC's 7nm instead Samdung's 8nm which is the same crap as their old 12nm process, but nVidia will cut any corner possible, even if that means burning down a few homes.

    Pretty sure the GDDR6X is the biggest source of heat here.
