How about you dont spam this thread with 100% off-topic questions...
actually, that doesn't look terrible, none of the "ARRGEEEBEE" crap, so components don't really suffer.
I liked a couple of UV fluorescent tubes in the base of a case back in the day, but now all this bloatware turning a case into a gypsy wedding venue is to much.
20 year old misleading and outdated information not applicable to today. Let me guess, you also believe coil whine only happens at 1000FPS when in menus? Another 20 year old information, some people are just stuck in the past happily continuing to spread misinformation as facts.
I've been following this development for 3 months on Guru3D, Reddit, OC.net, overclockers UK, I didn't see a single report that changing PSU (or any component) fixed their 4090 coil whine. But I've seen countless reports where people returned defective crappy 4090 with coil whine, got another brand, and coil whine went away. Isn't that interesting, huh?
What were your observations (if any) on cards that had coil whine with their normal coolers but then had the stock cooler swapped out for water blocks. Anything to suggest if it stayed the same, got worse or improved ?
TBH I haven't been paying much attention to watercooling aspect of 4090, as it's been generally accepted that wc doesn't benefit much if anything to 4090. You can already reach max OC on these beefy air coolers, and most of performance and headroom is gained from VRAM OC, not core clock OC. You hit hard diminishing returns at 3000Mhz core clock, but for mem (assuming you won VRAM lottery) it just keeps going up in performance if you can achieve +1500, +2000 or maybe even more if you are super lucky.
So for example on air you may run at 65C and on water 50C? Great... so that's 3030Mhz instead of 3000Mhz? That's not gonna do anything heh.
That's also the reason why they gave the rtx 4090 lower spec'ed gddr6x compared to the rtx 4080, so there is room for a 4090 ti later on, with the faster gddr6x.
I'm happy with WCing bud, I've been WCing rigs for 20 years, I asked if changing the cooler has any impact on coil whine, as you said you have been following 4090 coil whine so very closely. And not everybody WCs their rigs to improve OCing headroom, some of us do it just for sh1ts and giggles.
There's always a bigger thing around the corner bud, do you buy a 4090 or wait for the 4090Ti, do you buy the 4090Ti or wait for the 5090, and on its goes.
Where did you see me even elude to this "dilemma" -_-
I simply pointed out that it's the obvious reason why nvidia didn't give the 4090 the fastest gddr6x memory, even if it's what would have benefitted its performance the most.
Blimey, who stole the jam out of your doughnut. You said it above, why the 4090 has lower spec VRam, so they can update it for a Ti later. Maybe have some dark chocolate bud, chill you out a little.
I don't have an observation. But, an Aircooler provides always some noise - even if it is as good as the Asus Fans are. So there is a chance you can hear coil whine on even quieter water cooling. Just because if it is only hardly to hear whine which was masked by the fans before. And then there is also a chance of more whine by better cooling of the coils. But you can't predict that for sure, so you will have to try it by yourself.
And you sir, won't have any trouble as your Doctor told you that your ears lost some tones ^^ (no offense)
Thanks, i was just wondering if anybody had found cooler core and VRM temps had led to a drop in coil whine.
Il run the card with the stock air cooler on and record the sound then do the same once ive got the block on and see if there is any difference.
What memory oc are people running with? And has anybody done some testing to see how framerates scale with mem oc?
Testing the waters myself.
Currently, +150 core and +1000 memory, and it can go further, but i plan to UV and lower the PL to 75%, as it reduces maybe 3% of performance but at much lower power budget.
Is that +1000 in Afterburner or +500?
For core overclock, you can have your cake and eat it. Just use the curve editor to set 2850mhz @ 1v.
Max power it will use is 400W but performance is better than stock.
It's 1000+mhz in AB.
I have some UV curves to test, like 945mV@2700, 985mV@2800+.
Just testing the current artificial limits of the card, with the current OC it hits 3.0ghz at 1.05-1.1V in CP2077.
What's your findings so far?
My curve results in 2885mhz@1v and it never moves from that.
MSi's anti-sag bracket didn't work at all. It's only been a few months and my RTX 4090 is already sagging.
Anyways, I just ordered an anti-sag stand from amazon, something I should of done from the get go.
You need anti-sag bracket for your anti-sag bracket. But jokes aside, it's just simple physics and easy to see why brackets that attach to the rear of the case was a bad idea.
