I have just purchased a new NVIDIA EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FTW3 HYBIRD 12G. I have never installed a hybrid gpu. If you have experience installing these any help would be appreciated. According to the instructions i have to remove the current heat sync and install the hybrid cooling system and radiator. Also would the wiring be the same as my current Asus gtx 1080? or do i need different power or any type of connection?
remove old card,
install RTX 3080 in PCIe x16 slot,
attach radiator to a 240mm vented case mounting point,
attach fans to the radiator,
attach PCIe power cables to card.
you will have to compare the old & new cards to see.
most 3rd party RTX 3080s should be using 2x 8pin PCIe power cables.
thank you. i had directions to install the hybrid kit on a non hybrid card that was my problem. ive got a perfect spot in my case for the radiator which is the last possible spot to mount this. Its a spot for a 360mm radiator. I mounted my distro plate/reservoir to the front of the pc replacing the front glass panel good thing i got that one because if not most distro plates would of went in this spot that is free where im going to put this gpu radiator.
