I ended up replacing my AIO hybrid fans with Noctua A12x25.
 
I haven’t run it through its full paces yet, i just booted it up to make sure it works, but it does idle 3 C lower at 40% AIO idle fan speed. 


The AIO is at the top of the case. The picture was taken just after I replaced the fan while my CPU was on its side. I also replaced my case fan with a Noctua A12x25 and will eventually replace my CPU AIO fans, too. I was going to get the Chromax/black ones, but I actually like the look. 


Yes, my cable management is poor lol. Function over form.  I also included a photo of the OEM fan.  It‘s simply a rebranded Power Logic fan. They didn’t even change the model number. However, I couldn’t find any stats other than the FAQ, assuming it’s the same.

    my FTW3 hybrid kit (also 3080ti) came with 0.64A fans. They are the RGB ones. I didn't realize how much more powerful they were than the non-RGB fans on the XC3 kit. Part number on those is PLA12025S12L-1 (seen in top fan here):

    Those fans have a really harsh noise profile. I wouldn't run them in my build.

    Are you talking about the Noctua's? I've tried them as well, they are not quiet for the air they move. I keep going back to the Scythe Gentle Typhoons made by Nidec. I've never found a superior performing and longer lasting fan at 120mm.

    No, Those are great, pretty much the best fans money can buy. I'm talking about the ones that come with the XC and FTW3 Hybrid Kit.

    Just a friendly reminder: if you submit a warranty claim for the card/kit, the original fans must be installed, otherwise the warranty claim will be rejected. Make sure you keep the original fans in a safe place.

    Oh yes, the stock fans EVGA uses are pretty much the cheapest they can source...sleeve bearings and all. Noctua pretty much copied the impeller design from Scythe.

    AP-15s and A12s I think are the best rad fans in the market without all the glitz and glamour.

    Do you have the radiator mounted on the bottom of the case?  It will likely lead to earlier pump failure.

    3c is a fair gain.  What about noise, quieter than the evga stock fans?
     
    I'm a Be Quiet! fan myself, I found them to be the best middle of the road choice for cooling and quiet.  Noctua's were great for cooling I found, but way too noisy for me.
