Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME 24G Modding Instructions

ModelGigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3090 XTREME 24G

Repasted GPU with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste. Replaced all stock thermal pads (front and back) with Thermalright Oddyssey 12.8W/mk thermal pads, and added extra pads on the back . I removed backplate completely, and installed a custom copper block directly on the thermal pads, and the copper block (9 cm x 6.5 cm x 1 cm – L x W x H, 1.5 kg) is actively cooled by a 280mm CPU watercooler (NZXT Kraken X63), which is screwed in the copper block just like on a CPU, and it has Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (liquid metal) as thermal interface.
