Cmon, seriously? Having to now try and mount 240mm Hybrids with cases like mine that are pretty much maxed out with CPU water cooling solutions?  And dont' give me that crap about mounting the 240mm to the front intake. That hot air from GPU cooling will then pollute the entire case and its equipment, so thats a crock of an idea
 
Why the hell couldn't you have managed a solution with a dense 140mm rad fin stack and high pressure fan? That would make the 3000 hybrids a hell of a lot more flexible and compatible with many other users setups and cases

    Because 140mm is not a whole lot of cooling?
    You could also just go HC (or other block) and do your own custom watercooling loop :-)

    it might be more versatile but i would think with the specs of these cards and the power draws a 240mm should be a minimum in my opinion. But yeah i get your point about the space needed for the larger radiator.

    Big card, big radiator.  Why would they do that?!

    Imagine replacing a 2.5-slot triple-fan air cooler for a single-fan radiator.  I wonder how well it would perform.   Would it be pointless and loud?  Yes, probably.  No one would buy it if it was louder than the air-cooled version.

    I have to agree, this is dumb. I may just wait for AMD's new cards at this stage, tired of being nvidias shill anyway

    You're not going to buy any 30x0 card because EVGA's hybrid version of the card only has a 240mm radiator?
    I'm just confused now...

    It's ok, it's better if they own a different card and hang out elsewhere.

    240mm, get it right. If it was 140mm then i'd be totally down with Arctic as well, it would fit in a lot more cases.

    But it would work like trash, and you would return it.  So, point is mute.
     
    Solution: you don't buy a 240mm version, and others enjoy their 240mm versions.

    And you would be even more wrong.
    You need more than 140mm. Get an air cooled version if you can't fit the radiator...
     
    Or build a custom loop with the rad space you can fit.
    But it's not EVGA's fault that your case is too small to do what needs to be done ;-)

    How does a company make you promote them? At this stage of your grief... Like many others, a 240mm rad is going to require some creative thinking. A 120mm was barely adequate for a 1080 Ti, if you added another fan. You know, what we used to take as SOP, before everything became plug and play and 'enthusiasts' are more like casuals that breakdown at the slightest sign of inconvenience. For such a manly user name you're a bit touchy feely.   I don't see how they could effectively manage thermals with a single fan 120 rad. Maybe a dual thickness 140mm.

    A top class case in 2020 is only $100-$130.  3000 series will probably cause a lot of people to upgrade their cases even with the air-cooled cards.

    Better suggestion would be to see what better product AMD puts out vs being Nvidia all around and being forced to buy a new case for a stupid GPU design

    There is nothing wrong with having a rad in the front as intake. A lot of custom loops have rads in the front. My case has the ability to do push/pull for the front intake. I might give that a try.

    Oh yeah for sure. Especially if the whole computer is watercooled.
    I have rads on basically every opening (except for the single 140mm exhaust in the rear).

    I'm not sure what the fuss is about.
    If card is too big, get a bigger case.
    If card is too big, get a different model.
    If card is too big, go custom loop.
     
    Pretty clear cut resolution to his question/rant

    Not to be horrible to you, but actually constructive comment: buy a bigger case. You needn't spend a fortune as even large cases are relatively cheap in comparison to the cost of these GPUs. And - if like me - you spend quite a lot on a high quality case it is an investment that you can use for decades. Unlike my RTX 2080 Ti which is kinda lasting two years... I mean it still works, but it ain't going to last 30 years like my Caselabs case.
     
    So actually serious. You can only shoehorn so much into small cases without making compromises on cooling performance or fps performance. Get a bigger case.

    Came here to find out information on the hyrbrids this gen. Pleasantly surprised and thankful EVGA is going with a large radiator. I had a kraken 2080ti with a 280mm rad and max overclocked the card never went above 46C in gaming. It also maintained boost clocks vs fluctuating all over the place even without locking the  core in. Due to the lower temps the max overclock was  +40 higher on the core vs overclock on air. This is great news!! Good job EVGA. Anyway you can meet me out back behind the warehouse and sell me a card? If I drive  somewhat normal I can be there in 18 hours.

    The new cards clearly run hot (higher TDP) and therefore a single 120/140 radiator is not going to cut it, and you'll end up with thermal throttling. If a smaller radiator is more important, then buy a 2080Ti Hybrid because you wont get the throttling and may end up around the same performance level lol.

    I'm actually okay with a 240 rad. It would work out well with the Prosiphon Elite I ordered. The current tubes to the 120mm hybrid kit are too short to reach the top of my case to exhaust so I have to exhaust from the rear. But that wouldn't work with an air cooler on the CPU since the rad takes up too much space. So if the tubes are long enough I can have the 240mm exhaust at the top of the case and have enough room for my air cooler. Then I can remove my current CLC from the CPU and take the RAD off the front of my tower and just have air blow in unimpeded.

    If the Hybrid is running a 240 does this mean the Hydro Copper will likely be a 360?
