dervin3I currently have a 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra and looking to lower my temps a bit and looking at the hybrid kit. Does anyone here have or knows someone who has a hybrid evga card installed in a Meshify C case? Specifically the front because I already have an AIO top mounted.
gulererdI have the same card and same case. I recently installed the card and the temps shot straight up to 75C+ with 100% fans working plus another case fan blowing underneath the card. When I close the glass case panel the temps increase fairly quickly and the glass heats up. When the panel is open temps stay around 70C. I think it's due to the card's design that blows the air from the sides that don't have much space to escape in the narrow Mesihify C case. I also looked into getting the hybrid kit but the space in the front is quite limited. It just has enough space to put case fans. If anyone has installed the hybrid kit in this case, I'd also be interested to know.
gulererdIn case anyone was in my position where having the 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra in a Meshify C was resulting in higher than desired GPU temperatures, I can say that cases make a significant impact. I decided the GPU temps were high for me and changed from a Meshify C case to Lian Li Lancool II Mesh Performance case. I also threw in two case fans on the PSU shroud blowing on the GPU (Lancool case supports this). My GPU temperatures came down about 10 C gaming and now temperatures do not go over 68 C in benchmark testing. So, if anyone was contemplating getting a hybrid kit (like OP above) or changing their case, I went with the latter and I can say that changing into a better airflow case definitely helps.
Mattyeyou are going to want to put the gpu radiator on the top of the case adn set it to exhaust. Have the cpu aio set as the intake, it runs cooler. I had a meshify and a 3080 hybrid and that setup worked great in mine.
