I haven't seen much on the pump noise yet.  Since people are starting to receive their kits and cards, how is the pump noise?  I know the previous gen was pretty loud.

    Mine has a buzz to it. It's only noticeable when idle and case fans aren't above 30%.  When I'm gaming and the fans get going I don't notice it anymore.  I have my case on top of my desk next to my monitor so if it was below my desk I'm sure I wouldn't notice it at all.

    It's really annoying to me, there's definitely a buzz that destroys the silence that was there before.  My computer sits on a desk maybe 4-5ft away  In a quiet room, even with the tv quietly in the background, there's a noticeable "buzz/hum".  I've spent hours tuning my fans so there's no harmonic whines or un-necessary utilization, and I like my system quiet.  The hybrid kit I put on my 3080 is definitely a double-edged sword.  Right now, ambient temp 21.6c, I can run 2025Mhz core +200 Mem, 1.144v while maintaining temps in the 60-74c range (across all sensors) whereas before on air, I would be at 1855Mhz for the same temp range (fans capped at about 1600rpm, .886v).
     
    Everything is housed in a O11DXL with the GPU in a vertical mount. Yes the pump is lower than the top of the rad, and yeah I shook things a bit to get any air bubbles moving.

    I bet you can pump that memory up.  I can get +1300 on my xc3 ultra hybrid.

    Yeah +500 is my actual limit, and get's me the highest Port Royal score until it starts to decline, but I've found in some games I'll either have weird glitches after a while or CTD events.  So I went with +200 and it's been super smooth and there's not much difference in score between that and 500 for my card.
     
    FYI, in the grand scheme of things, I don't think I have a golden sample like some posts on here, but compared to EVGA's spec sheet, it's running +225 core and +200 mem, and it's already a beast of a card.  I do wish it was a better sample though so I could actually take advantage of the cooling I've got.  The frames just aren't there for my card.
     
    And the pump has a very noticable hum when the room is quiet, but it's not as noticeable as soon as some noise enters the room.  Or once the case fans start spinning up.

    I don't notice noise on mine above sound of other case fans, even at low speeds. It was a little loud at first while air moved, fine since.

    I installed my hybrid kit and there was 0 pump noise. If anything the single fan on the thing is LOUD. It scales off VRAM temp and hits 2000RPM at 55-60C. Thing is louder than my 8 noctua's combined.

    Is it about like mine?

    My FTW3 hybrid has absolute zero noise... dead silent even with ear to the card.
     
    Those with noise - did you mount correctly? radiator tubs down low if front/rear mounted and the top of the radiator higher than the card? or radiator installed top of the case?  this is most common cause of noise is air in the pump.

    Mine has some pump noise, like others said i cant hear it when I am gaming but at idle, there is a buzzing kinda of like a harddrive, lowkey annoying.
    I recorded a video, It is that buzzing noise behind the fan noise.

    Yeah I've been aware of liquid loop caveats and tricks, got the radiator side mounted, tubes on the bottom.  Shook the card a bit, changing the angles, to try to encourage any air bubbles to move.  I've done that on 4 separate occasions.  Still buzzes.  The buzz changes pitch slightly when under load, like Cyberpunk.
     
    Video of mine buzzing: lol, I've only have made six posts, so I can't post a URL

    Oh here's anything I can say, I tried doing the cable adapter mod and plugging the fan into the Mobo to contol pump speed; it didn't work.  Couldn't get the pump to spin at all.

    Not a single issue with pump noise on the 3090 FTW3 Ultra Hybrid card.  Even had the radiator sitting in a ice bucket yesterday below the card and it made 0 noise.

    what about connecting the pump with a MINI GPU  cable to 4PIN, and powering it off the motherboard with a curve starting at 60%, i did this back with my 2080TI HYBRID, had no issues, and the buzzing noise disappeared

    The 4 pin is to power the fans not the other way around for the pump. All Hybrid pumps probably sound like this, and while I am one of them, some people seem to be more sensitive to it than others.

    there is an adapter, (I have it) you connect to to the pumps cable, and run the cable through the shroud out to the motherboard, then set the fan header on the board to DC MODE, all the pump to work at 60% at low temps (according to cpu , for example) and then make sure at higher temps like over 50-60c of the cpu, that it gets up to 100%, i did this on my 2080TI HYBRID

    I am not having any noticeable "noise" issues with my FTW3 Hybrid 3090.  I cannot hear it at all unless I stick my ear almost directly on the exhaust-area of the GPU slots, and even then, it's not that loud.
     
    I know some folks have had bad pump noise, most of those probably warrant an RMA.  One in particular was definitely a bad pump.  But I think the majority of people have not had noise issues thus far.

    The same can be said about the older 2080 cards , i had a 2080TI XC HYBRID, the noise was noticeale in a silent room at idle , which irritated my "silent" system, i bought that MINI GPU TO 4PIN adapter, threaded it out of the card where the PCIE connections are, connected it to the mobo as a DC MODE fan header, and cpu temps under 45c allowed the pump to work at 60%, higher temps over 60c CPU the pump would go back up to 100%

    Probably referring to mine.

    I created a ticket and tweeted Jacob so I will see what they say. Still have to figure out why my temperatures are 20 degrees higher than everyone.

    I had to RMA my card due to buzzing noise at idle. Im starting to think this is the norm which is a dealbreaker for me.

    If you get another like that could always do the trick of plugging into the mother board header to tone down the pump speed a little. Did you just submit a ticket or did you get approved?

    I submitted a ticket and recorded the noise then I called and had the RMA approved.  I did buy the cable in case the noise happens with replacement.
