why do you think it wont fit with the loser card mod? just curious what measurements you are looking at cause when I checked it should fit fine. wondering if I looked at the wrong measurements.
That specifically says height, not depth. The losercase mod just moved the GPU straight up.Well with the losercard gpu riser the clearance for the depth of the card becomes 130mm. In the default spot you can just barely put the sidepanel back on. Losing 14mm means you will have to run it without the side panel.
Here is the copy and paste from the losercard page:
MOD KIT LIMITATIONS: PLEASE READ!!!
- Reduces GPU height compatibility to 130MM (original: 144MM max height). Some GPUs are exceptions to this rule if they have recessed PCI-E power ports.
Running heaven 4.0 gpu hits 70-75ish maxed out running for 30min while my delided 8086k @5ghz is at 65-70. I did not want to try running the 3080 without reversing the psu. I gave it one shot, if it didn't run well then I would have kept the 2080 super. My vod shows me actually tackling the transplant. Hope this helps! Cheers!Nice build!
How are temps for the GPU? Any issues with the PSU being reversed?
Ok, I can confirm the 3080FE works pretty well within the Dan case.
Battlefield V, 1440p, all ultra , FPS at ~ 144.
GPU temp 64°C.
Psu is „only“ 600W, but working fine. CPU is a 3700x.
I'm now convinced that this is a good idea with the spacere. But impossible to get one, especially in Europe :-(
This is my setup:
Gigabyte Aorus Pro WIFI AMD B450
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Corsair SF Series SF600
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB
SanDisk Extreme PRO M.2
Noctua NH-L9a-AM4 Topblow
GeForce RTX3080 Founders Edition
What I’ve changed compared to the „standard build“:
-Removed the plastic sheet behind the gpu
-Reversed the psu so that the intake of psu facing the gpu exhaust.
-10mm higher 3d printed stands so that the exhaust fan under the psu will achieve a better air flow outside the case
-3d printed mount for 2pcs 40mm fans (exhaust) on top of the psu so that the warm air from gpu and psu will be pulled out of the psu and case.
If someone is interested in it, I can post some photos of details.
No, you have to flip the psu. Otherwise the warm air from the gpu can’t exit the case properly.Sounds very interesting with the 40mm fans: are you sure this solution doesn't work at least as well without flipping the PSU?
No, you have to flip the psu. Otherwise the warm air from the gpu can’t exit the case properly.
Maybe you can use the 3080FE without the additional 40mm fans, but I was concerned my psu will be overheating at higher ambient temperatures.
At the moment everything is ok, but in the summer it could lead to problems. Especially with my 600W psu (recommend is 750W).
So I wanted to be sure and installed them
