I just checked the que list and it looks like im about 35 ish cards away from mine!! I am looking for the real ln2 bios, I'm in the process of getting my actual ln2 bench setup up and ready for the card the moment it arrives. Would like to have the vbios ready to throw onto the card, so could anyone point me in the right direction?


You mean the xoc bios ?

Yes, the real LN2 BIOS.  The real BIOS which real LN2 users use.  That EVGA calls the one on the card a "LN2" bios is just sad.

yes, the xoc one. and was hoping for something like what the 2080 ti kp had on xdevs.com for the 3090.

I'm using the LN2 bios.

It's stuck in 470w showing power limit. The only way to get close to the max power of this bios is using the classified tool (I don't want to use it so I won't break the card).

Why the card is not using the extra power it has available while gaming? Even the strix card I had used the 480w allowed by bios.

I can confirm the OP's point about the hoses.  If you intended to integrate the KP into a custom loop and have a case large enough to fit an EATX board, Res + rads in the front, you may not be able to use the KP with the 400mm hose length.  In my case it was approximately 40mm too short to do the job using the closest PCIe slot (not even the best PCIe slot). 
 
I ended up buying a case because I couldn't route the hoses because they were too stiff in the midsize tower and my intention was to always go to a custom loop and bought a full size.  I also considered building some contraption to hold the radiator in place outside of normal case mounts but again the tubes proved to be too stiff to orient in any usable manner.  Either way, the hoses could certainly be improved upon when they do not work for the three cases I've owned or purchased.  Hopefully the HC block or some competitor block comes on the market soon to get some actual usage out of this card...

My cards load temperatures have been slowly but steadily increasing for past couple months. Started in upper 40s to low 50s. Now in time spy extreme i see 67c die temp and 63c.in x1. I haven't really overclocked much and usually run stock. Feels like maybe the thermal paste wasn't applied properly. Any other thought?

I'm on push pull with 3x ml120 and 3x ekwb vardar, side intake on a lian li dynamic oxl

Is anyone with a Kingpin actually experiencing the iCX/supposedly NVidia-driver caused temperature/sensor readout errors that the regular 3080s & 3090s are experiencing?  I had the issue on both my 3080 & 3090, but the Kingpin I don't think I've seen it happen once. Just realized today that I haven't seen an error on a sensor in ages.  I.E. temperatures showing 6500C+ for a split second or fans going to crazy numbers of 65000+RPM and the like.
 
Just thought I'd ask & see what others are seeing - makes me wonder if the Kingpin card has unique/slightly different sensors & that's why the issue isn't happening with them? Or is it and it just hasn't to me yet?

i had the same issue with my kingpin spiking temps I did a rma and the new kingpin work fine no temp issues same system nothing changed could be something wrong with the sensors they didn’t let me know anything just that it work fine in there system.

Decided to do a KP again, luckily this one works on the first try, seems to be very solid out of the box. +115 G +1000 M passing tests no problem. I have not benched it yet, but looking forward to it.

Re: EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N - Owners thread (bench marks, questions, etc.) 2021/02/16 12:53:58 (permalink)
 Hey all,
 
I am on the list for the EVGA hybrid versions of the 3080, 3090, and 3090 Kingpin cards.  I assume the Kingpin version will be the first one available to me so I am trying to plan ahead.  I have a few questions I was hoping for feedback on.  My PC component/specs are in my sig.  

PC usage:
I mainly game with a few benchmark tests here and there to test stability of any OCs.  I do drive 3 monitors, main one for gaming, with one for chat/disc, other for any web browsing needs.
 
Question 1: Power
Will my PSU be powerful enough to handle this set up with a 3090 kingpin?  My voltage for CPU overlock is at 1.35 I believe to obtain the 5.1 all core OC.  I don't plan on going ham on the GPU overclocks honestly, but I know the Kingpin draws a ton of wattage regardless.  I also use the XMP 1 profile to OC my RAM FWIW. 

Question 2: Kingpin rad location
Will the Kingpin hoses be long enough to accommodate a front mounted radiator orientation with hoses at the bottom?  
 
Question 3: Fan orientation
All Rad fans are Corsair LL Series LL 120 RGB 120mm, currently 4 push orientation.  The two front intake fans are 140mm version of the same.  I plan on adding 3 more 120mm fans with the Kingpin config.  Thoughts on air flow? 
 
This is a picture of current system, but I have overlaid it with the projected layout.  Both 360 rads will be pushing air out (top/front) and will have 2 140mm fans at the bottom and 1 120mm fan at the back bringing in cool air.

Could anyone give me a sense of their idle and load temperatures? I am getting +10c over ambient (26c), around 36c with 35w draw. Running timespy loops today I hit a maximum of 75c on GPU die and 69-70c in X1 on GPU. The load was timespy extreme stress test run for 15 minutes. I am starting to think something is seriously wrong with my kingpin but I can't figure out what it is. I am basically running stock. Took side panel off and it made no difference. Maybe my mounting pressure is off?

*edit*
Poking around more I noticed the side panel of my.lian li dynamic oxl, where kingpin is exhausting, was super hot. So was the top panel. I think back panel is restricting exhaust too much. Going to play musical fans tomorrow and see how things go.

Hey all,

With Kingpin in the front I am planning on that having 3 120mm fans push.  Move the two 140mm fans to the bottom to bring in cool air and since there will be no more rad in the back ill use that as another cool air intake as well.


 
Question 1: For now, but probably not if you want to really push it for benchmarks. I've got my Kingpin so far into the 620w just for the card which doesn't leave you much left. You can game on it in the 440-460w just fine.
 
Question2: Don't know, I took my AIO off already.

I just got my 3090 kingpin and there is no manual at all. I read a lot of things here in the forum to get idea of how the overclock is going for this cards. Mine does 14273 in port royal just installing it in the OC bios and no OC program or fans speed change. I'll do some testing.

The temps with the OC bios are very cool so the LN2 bios should work well for the card for bench and gaming. I'm replacing the stocks fans as well with the noctuas.

Are we allowed to use the LN2 bios without voiding the warranty?



Not sure how similar they are, but you can reference the other hybrid guide:

Reliantg
My Kingpin came in yesterday. I have a 360mm AIO for my CPU up top exhausting, so I put the rad for the Kingpin up front as intake. This meant removing 3 intake case fans. I noticed that if I jump out of a game and do something CPU heavy quickly, my CPU temp is much higher. I'm attributing this to lack of cooled fresh air. I added 2 140mm fans to the bottom as intake, and I already had a back 140mm as exhaust. I also changed the rad fan curve to keep at a higher fixed % even when the GPU is idle to help get airflow in.
My question is, how can I improve this? I really like having the Kingpin be front intake for the best fresh air. A couple of ideas I want input on: Rear case fan as intake to feed fresh air to the top mounted AIO? Would this cause problems with the front AIO pushing the opposite direction. And second, top AIO as intake while leaving the back case fan as exhaust? This is pumping a lot more heat in to the case and I'm not sure the rear fan would be enough?
Thoughts?

 

I have a Meshify S2 case.
Initially I put my KP rad in, then I realized my RAM temps are over 52-55C, sometimes 59-60C after hours of gaming. Also the nvme temp was sometimes over 60, even has a rad on it (mounted on Apex XII).
I have 2 fans bottom in, and KP out. Rear fan in, and on top the 360 CPU AiO out.
Now RAM temps are mid 40C, 47C tops.
 
Quite disappointed that I purchased this card. Quality is not anymore what it used to be, even for a KP card. Couldn't believe what piece of junk I got. 
First... The Pump is crap... Saw that other guys have noise issues as well with the EVGA hybrids, also with KPs...
https://streamable.com/pmwlfv
The thing which annoys me the most is the small fan on the card which is around 2000rpm and it's damn noisy.
Card has some coil whine as well.
So much for a... "premium product". Really disappointed, lots of money flushed down the toilet.

Coming from a 2080Ti KP, which has been amazing.

Somehow I missed this post.
 
So the fan configuration you're showing in the picture is going to cause dust issues.  I would try to do top exhaust front intake, with the CPU radiator as intake, if it'll reach - if it won't, it is what it is, if the top of your case has dust filtration available, put it as top intake & front exhaust - keep in mind, while "heat rises" fan pressure can override any natural air movement pretty easily.
 
Question 1: Your PSU if I were you, I would look in to upgrading, if you end up getting the Kingpin, purely because I've seen others with the RM850 have some issues with high power draw CPUs & 3090s in general, and the Kingpin can get up there pretty quick, as well as the 9900K depending on what voltage you're at, can draw over 180-200W at full load.  So just combining what the GPU could draw & the CPU could draw, you're looking at at least 720W "possible" from those two components - add in everything else, motherboard draws, RAM, drives, fans etc, then tack on the fact that the 3090s are known to have some pretty vicious power spikes, I think you'd be better off with a larger unit.  Not only because of those issues, but also because running a PSU at around 70-80% load like you'd probably routinely be doing by gaming isn't necessarily hitting it at the right efficiency area to optimize your power draw.  You'd be better off going to a 1000-1200W unit (1200 if you want to be closer to 50% draw during usual loads) if you can find a quality one at a good price, in my opinion.  I'm sure some would argue that's overkill, but my argument is the PSU is the heart of your system, so you should spend like it's the heart of your system.
 
Question 2: The hoses should be long enough to go anywhere in that case, mine has plenty of tube-slack & it's going to the top, much higher (at least 6" higher) than the top of your case is
 
Question 3: As I said in the beginning of the post, I would go with CPU intake, GPU exhaust, for radiator orientation, with the bottom also being intake, that should make your system run just fine with good overall temps, since the GPU radiator will be getting fresh intake air from the bottom of the case.
 
Good luck!

Re: EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 K|NGP|N - Owners thread (bench marks, questions, etc.) 2021/02/21 10:50:34 (permalink)
Hi all.  I'm finally going to receive my KingPin tomorrow barring any additional shipping delays and have a few questions:
 
1). I hear the stock fans stink.  What fans do you recommend (LL vs ML)?
2). What is the best fan controller to use if I want to remove the fans from the card's power system?
 
Really looking forward to this! Thanks!

Replaced them by Noctua 12x25 PWM, quite silent enough... Even at 1600rpm, the max I noticed so far. A cheaper version might be Arctic P12 PWM and are quite silent.
I am really really annoyed with the small fan, in some games it reaches 2000 rpm and is not fun at all. Thinking to make some ghetto tuning removing the small fan, using a vga to pwm and put a 120mm instead :))

I don't use a fan controller, directly - my motherboard has temperature thermocouple plug ins on it, so I have one of those running to the GPU radiator exhaust then I use that temperature to control the radiator fans via a motherboard fan header (with the EK fan splitter to power the fans themselves directly off the power supply, and send PWM signal to the motherboard).  Depending on where you are, those fan splitters are a bit expensive, but worth it.
 
Fans, anything is better than the stock ones I think.  The stock ones have so much backdraft they're incredibly inefficient for their noise level.

Interesting.  I have that same board that you do although I was planning on putting this on the Ultra version (I think one step down in Gigabyte's lineup - also with a 9900k).  I'll have to see if I can figure out how to make it all work as I think the Master actually came with a probe as part of the standard kit.
 
Appreciate the answer!  I have some Corsair ML/LLs currently in the rig and will use those.  I also partly asked as I just finally got around to installing a converted 2080ti black with an EKWB in another rig and I realized I have no way to really adjust the fan curves based on GPU temps.

Be careful not to plug the temp sensor in to the wrong place - there is a jump close to the one that's near the bottom of the board that's for resetting the BIOS ^_^ I did that once - the motherboard book has them labeled on the layout, makes getting the right one easy.
 
I now have the other of the two Temp Sensors hooked up to my CPU radiator, mostly out of curiosity with how warm it will get when the CPU is under an extended load gaming or what not.

How about the small fan on the card?
Anyone else not disturbed by it? :)


Also, any settings regarding fan profile in X1 are lost once X1 is closed.
Noticed however that the light settings are kept after X1 is closed.
Is there any possibility to retain also the fan profile once X1 is closed?
 
Another possibility is to take off the small fan and put something else there :)
Can be removed just the card cover easily w/o disassembly everything?

No because I don't let it run at maximum speed.  Mine only gets an annoying tone to it over the 3000RPM mark... I have it max out at about 2400RPM, which keeps the card's face-side VRMs etc plenty cool, while not being noticeably loud over the 17 other fans in the system.
 
If you want a persistent fan profile, without the bloatware effects that Precision X1 has, use Afterburner, that's what I do.
 
Then there's cards like Luumi's (youtube/overclocker guy) which makes no weird tones or noises at any fan speed, lucky him. lol
