What I meant is with that cooling setting the rear fan won't do much in a Sentry case, even if the RTX 3080 would somehow fit into the case the rear fan would just blow hot air onto the air pocket at the back of the case.Actually nvidia debunked that and both fans pull the air from the bottom of the card. One will blow the air into the CPU area in standard ATX layout and the second one will blow out the hot air at the back.
Actually I even think if you don't use an AIO in a standard case you might even blow hot air on the CPU cooler and rise CPU temp.
We will have to wait for AIB models with a standard cooling system with 2 or 3 fan, the RTX 3070 design looks like the RTX 2080 reference, but again I think it is still too thick and too high for Sentry. So far RTX 3000 doesn't seems to be SFFPC friendly !
