theres issue with the memory cooing on the gigabyte cards. if you buy some cheap thermal pads off amazon, you can add/swap them and it will run better.

The Gigabyte Aourus RGB software (& ALL of its software suite for that matter) is by FAR the best I have used, then again I have only used ASUS ROG & MSI boards but both of those didnt come close to Gigabyte Aourus RGB software, besides that ALL Gigabyte Aourus boards have a LOT more RGB headers! I was misled & VERY pissed to find that unlike the Gigabyte Aourus boards when I bought the Asus ROG board it only has 2x RGB headers! One RGB & One ARGB, I had to buy an RGB Hub for both but then unlike Gigabyte Aourus you cant control multiple devices with their own separate modes/colors! So I would definitely say if u want RGB get Gigabyte Aourus NOT Asus ROG!

Q-Flash should NOT require you to open your case & press the button, on ALL my Gigabyte Aourus boards you just need to put the USB stick in the correct USB port on the motherboard thats (obviously) labeled Q-Flash & then there is always an option when you boot (where you can enter the Bios etc) that says Q-Flash & the corresponding key to access it, I never needed to press the button on the board, its obviously the same for the boards that dont have the button so maybe thats why it also works with the boards that do have the button as the Bios/menu etc is no doubt the same. Anyway, thats an easier method for the future!

Must be a hard sell for these kinds of cards when there’s such little difference between the base version and “Xtreme” type cards. Prettier but... not a huge gain in performance for all of the added shiny bits.

wow this is disappointing that huge cooler really isnt particularly impressive and being maxed out out of the box is also pretty weak. i have the 3080 ftw3 and it runs at 2050mhz at about 60 degress and i didnt think it was one of the best coolers for the 3080 but apparently i was wrong because the aorus is massive and the cooler is weak apparently. id be more interested in the aorus extreme with 3 power plugs and higher limits id be more curious if maybe the cooler shines with a a better quality chip on the board.

I tested Doom Eternal on my rig that has a master running on stock and got an average of 2030Mhz, while max is 2055Mhz at 65c. I’m so confused right now, not sure how I got better readings compared to Paul’s. My case is the Phanteks Evolv X, so that might be a factor.

Paul, I am a long time viewer and find your insights and expertise invaluable. Please consider making a $2K gaming build that doesn't light up like an Amsterdam red light district. I grew up making builds from closed black boxes that blew the doors off most PC games and would very much appreciate your applying your specialty to such a build. Thanks

I wonder if you could try putting it inside NR200 (or the p variant) as it seems to me this would end simply lying on the bottom, with fans drawing air straight from the bottom, and due to it lying on the bottom no sagging may be detected and consequently less strain on the PCIe slot may be observed... Somewhat like almost using additional fans on the bottom for the chimney air direction, though without those additional case fans ;)

@Paul's Hardware, I am going to building a pc soon and was just watching one of your videos saying that you put the radiator in the front of the case. The case I am getting has exhaust fans on the top of the case and it is a full ATX case. Could I put the liquid cooling system on the top of the case instead of the front?

If graphic cards get any larger they are going to have to include some sort of support bracket to keep the weight of the card from bending the MB out of shape.

At least they are finally screwing the io shields into the coolers and not just the outputs. Wish my asus 2080 ti had them. The bracket doesn't do much at all for it, especially with 1.3kg copper block on it.

Pretty soon the GPUs will be so big that you won't need a sag bracket. It'll just sit on the PSU shroud, and it won't be vertically mounted. Just a giant cubic GPU.

So, it has 2 slots more of thickness and it does only 6°C less vs founders? It only clocks and performs a bit better because it has more thermal headroom.... If you switched coolers the FE would perform better. Anyway, I have a 3 slot card and it does equally good and OCs better... So, I find the extra size useless here.
