So im having a problem with my GPU thermal throttling, im using the Gigabyte RTX 2080 in a NZXT Manta case and im not sure what to do with 2 intake fans cranked and the GPU fans almost maxed and still hit the thermal limit super quick, anyone have any ideas of how to cool with very little space? Thank you! (using stock speeds and no OC'ing)

Exhaust is more crucial than intake. Lower pressure created by the exhaust fans will pull air from everywhere, a constant flow. Intakes force air in, but if it's not goin out fast enough, it just sits and heats up. Assuming you have a tower cpu cooler, the exhaust out of that heatsink is already swamping the rear exhaust, complicating matters.

You need more exhaust, top fans will help, preferably 140mm. Other than that, might have to dial down on some of the extras that card has, like DLSS or Ray tracing on games you know aren't affected by them

ok upate, case fans at 70%, gpu fans at 75% and the front of the case removed = 81c, its better but still a lot of work to prevent over heating
