Well, that's done. Kraken G12 + X52 push-pull mounted. I'll post some pics later.
As for results. I did NOT expect that. At all. Fans on 100% for a quick test. With stock Phoenix GS air on 2070Mhz 1.093v with EVGA FTW3 Ultra BIOS with 100% fanspeed it ran in the mid 60's and loud as heck.
Now with fans on 100% on the Kraken as a quick test it didn't even hit 40c.. I made a super silent fan curve and it stabilized temps at 48c on 37% fanspeed.. I did buy a EK GPU 4 pin to standard PWM adapter cable and run the rad fans off the cards PWM controller so I can control rad fans through Afterburner.
Also, where 2085Mhz 1.093v would crash in 10 minutes and 2100+ Mhz wouldn't even load a game properly it now runs 2100Mhz on 47c just fine so far for a couple of minutes which it never did before lol..
I had to cut a LOT of heatsinks for the VRAM and VRM to size because they are too high to fit under the brackets and the corners overlap the VRAM.
Also had to go through my stash of old random aluminium heatsinks from random cards and motherboards and such and cut up a bunch of them for the chokes, VRM and such.
Can't ever have enough heatsinks lol.
Also, I got the stock Phoenix backplate to fit as well. I had to remove the spacers in the middle of the backplate that normally holds around the core but it fits with them removed just fine.

Enermax 80+ gold units in the 2004-2008 years that were literally catching fire in people's computers. It was all over the internet. That brand was pretty well known for it. So much so that personally I would never ever allow any of their units in any of my computers today in 2020, even if they are titanium or whatever. Dell had used them in their desktops for a number of years and then after the fire problem and some dells catching fire they dropped em. Anyway.. this whole power supply discussion is pretty far off topic from this thread I think, isn't it?
Blah blah 2080Ti is the best gaming GPU. I'd love to have one.

|Duskfall||For anyone who tries to flash Palit RTX 2080 Ti Dual (Non-A) Bios to Asus Rog Strix Non-A don't do it cause it soft-bricks the card probably because of the custom PCB.|

There are really good Gold PSU's and really bad Platinums floating around man. It's totally not a guarantee. Not every Gold PSU uses inferior components with a lesser lifespan. We're talking about a Prime Ultra here, not some random no-name brand Gold unit. And no, it does not guarantee it. At all. There's plenty of Platinum / Titaniums with less filtering and more ripple and worse Chinese caps then many top-tier Gold units.

|Imprezzion||Well, my Kraken G12 came in and all my adapters and hubs and cables and such as well. Going to be building my card now. Updating when it's installed|

Is there a bios editor available yet so I can simply save my card's default bios, edit it to just increase the power limits, then flash the card with the updated (higher power limits) bios?
The reason I ask is because there are all sorts of variables in bios, including ones people hardly ever mention such as optimizations for different memory (micron, samsung, hynix) and not only that but also different memory timings using the same memory (eg. samsung) but between different graphics cards/manufacturers. All that stuff and more buried settings in a bios means using bios' made for other cards with possibly different components isn't ideal and can even negatively affect both stability and performance...
Basically, I have a Gigabyte 2080 Ti Turbo ( https://www.gigabyte.com/ca/Graphics...11GC-rev-10#kf ) and would like to raise the power limit from the current 280w to somewhere between 300w and 330w. The cooling can easily take it. I've done tons of tests.
