Hi,
 
I have a 3080 TI FTW3 and I ordered the hybrid kit for better thermals and noise level.  I've been doing some reading and I've learned I'd need to manually update the BIOS to the Hybrid version.  My questions are A. is it even necessary to update the BIOS? B. what does updating it to hybrid do compared to the FTW3 version? Is it just so X1 lists it as a Hybrid? 
 
Also I'm not going to be using X1, I plan on using different fans for the radiator that will be controlled through CAM based on GPU temps.
 
Thanks

    The Hybrid bios controls the fans differently as you only have one fan on the card itself and the two fans on the radiator that look like one fan to the bios. You can manually change the fans speeds. It also controls the Hybrid pump speed, which you can not change.

    Just curious...so you are saying that the pump speed varies in proportion to the change in fan speeds ? I always thought that the pump runs at 100% all the time.
