the new revision has some features cut, like rgb and type c and from 6 heatpipes to now 5 hp only.
but, the whole heatsink of this new 3x model got significant upgrade on thickness, making it now >2 slot instead of <2 slot on the old model.
so the 3x model should have the same thickness like gaming oc model.

it is very interesting to see whether the number of heatpipe matters or the thickness of the heatsink determines the cooling performance.
Heatpipes matter. MSI Armor: the 1st half of heatsink over GPU is kind of irrelevant compared to the 2nd half that's over VRMs, there are not enough heatpipes going into the the 1st half to cool well (only 1 goes into it and rest is over die). This is easy to test now because each of the 2 fans can be controlled individually. You want as many heatpipes as possible going into as many fins as possible. Dumping heat out of heatpipes of course helps a lot too otherwise they stall.

You need as best heat conduction away from die as possible. Doesn't matter if you have 10kg heatsink attached to 1 heatpipe, it won't be able to take the heat away fast enough.
The bottleneck on modern chips is silicon height, IHS, contact plate, heatpipes. Getting heat out of the die in general. That's why a small heatsink with good heat conduction away from die can be better than a large heatsink with poor one.

Hey guys, I bought my first Nvidia card since probably the 8800GTS 320mb to replace my failing Vega 64.

I went for the Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC 8GB (GV-N207SWF3OC-8GD).

Any thoughts on it or stuff I need to know about Nvidia? I do have a freesync screen (Dell S2719DGF), but it looks like I'll be able to run G-Sync on it.

It'll be paired with my Ryzen 2700x to game at 1440p (mainly pubg)

this card needs ~2200rpm for fans to blow through the whole heatsink. you will see a temp cliff around 2000~2200rpm.

80C for a 2070? That's reference model horrible. With half decent cooler you can keep these under 70C under 1500rpm.

Huh, so the GV-N207SWF3OC-8GD doesn't have RGB

I was starting to like it!

You can't use RPM as a value to compare different fan designs. Anyways I am using the Define R6 case. Currently with stock fans, bought some noctua replacement fans for some better air flow which are coming soon. Those will help a bit with hot air getting stuck at top of the case.. 80C is fine considering I dont hear the card up to 2000RPM. Anything higher than that and you start to hear it slightly in a completely silent room.

Does anyone have RTX 2070 super with device ID '10DE 1EC7' and reference ports/pcb? If so I would really appreciate it if you could share your bios.

Is there a BIOS for reference PCB 2070S that allows more than 240W power?

Perhaps someone can explain to me...

My 2070 Super is rated for 1785mhz boost clocks. But in games I usually see 1965mhz... is this a bug or what? Seems like a massive jump over default?

My EVGA 2070 has a boost of 1710ish and it jumps to 1920-1935mhz during gaming. Its Nvidias boost. It will boost the card up until you hit a certain temp. It will throttle it back down when temps reach a higher degree.
