Hi Everyone,
 
I was fortunate enough to get a 3080 Ti XC3 about a year ago and I've been happy with it, but I always knew the cooler was undersized.  I had always intended on installing the hybrid kit once everything finally calmed down and they were in stock.  Unfortunately, with EVGA's announcement and the product page for the hybrid cooler seemingly gone, it seems that's no longer an option.  Are there any other aftermarket options or am I just stuck with this tiny air cooler?
 
Thanks!

    The only aftermarket system that I was aware of for making an AiO work with a GPU is the NZXT G10 / G12. Sadly, the mounting holes do not line up with the 30 series (I tried with the 3090).
     
    My guess is that you're best bet is to see if Ebay or someplace else has a compatible XC3 Hybrid kit that they're selling. Long term, though, you'll likely be better off keeping the air cooler and undervolting the card to keep it cooler. I've not done it, yet there were several guides out there on how to do so for the 30 series.
     
    EDIT: you could always go custom loop cooling with a water block, yet that's probably more of a hassle than it's worth. Yet it is an option!

    Hello, EU still has stock in a limited amount of places for the XC3 Hybrid kit, i would recommend trying to contact one and see if they will export it to you or convince a friend to get it for you (perhaps if someone is on a business trip and can bring it back or so).
    If none of that works the last best is eBay.
    Here is the link with the 3 (technically 2) sellers you can buy it from still: https://geizhals.eu/evga-geforce-rtx-3090-3080-xc3-hybrid-kit-400-hy-1978-b1-a2478681.html
    "zum Angebot" buttons under the prices will bring you to the site directly. Good luck.

    I choose to stay hopeful!

    Meant to respond the other day and I forgot.  After your suggestion, I did try undervolting the card a little and that seemed to help some.  It did drop power consumption.  Thanks!
