Hi,
I just month a water block on the evga 3080 FTW Ultra. I used Liquidmetal and happy with the result. Unfortunately, if I check the HWinfo there is a GPU2 temp. the sensor which shows 7-10 degree more than GPU temp. Is that normal?
I am unsure. I hope I didn't make any mistake during mounting the Water block on the GPU. 
Could you tell me where this GPU2 sensor is on the PCB.

    On the back of the card, with the caps that are exposed. Put a fan on it and that temp will drop.

    Which caps?. Can you send me a picture. Maybe I can handle it with the backplate?.

    There's a big square cutout on the FTW3 backplate. There.
