Hey,

same here Ram-Temps are near 100 Degrees while mining on my Suprim x 3090‘s.

Dear Alphacoolians, would you mind launching an watercooled backplate as your competitor did? I would take 2 … even be your “Beta“ Tester 😊

Greetings from Germany

Active backplate for Suprim X 3090 will come! ;-) Planned for the 1st quarter of 2022!

I have the same issue, is it wise to try thicker thermal pads and/or in more spots? the thing i am not sure is that thermal junction is for sure only at the back of the card or is there a case to be also in the front despite the active water cooling?
I am asking as to disassemble and wait 2 - 4 weeks for new thermal pads is not a viable solution at the moment, so any information would be much preferable and appreciated.
Forgot to mention that my temps at 5 mins are easily go to 110 C thermal junction and core is ok at 50 C, card immediately start throttling.
Even I am trying to hold it at 104-108 thermal junction at 85 % power with ambient at 12 C, imagine summer was immediately throttling.
I have 2 same cards the other is not throttling at all.

Have you checked that the thermal pads have sufficient contact with the components? A picture of your PCB with the marks on the pads would help solve your problem.

HI, same problems here, i Write them an e-mail, no answer yet... (i have also attached them pictures with the pads how they requiest in other threads on this formu) I have an Aorus rtx 3080TI Xterme... today i spend 70 euro only on pads...12.8Wk 1.5,mm 1mm, 2mm . First try was the 1mm pads... no luck on memories.. 96 degrees, then 1.5mm, gpu not touching the plate good, so 1mm again, 93 degrees, and then i replaced the backplate 2mm 3x3 that came with the kit .

Alphacool Eiswolf 2 AIO - 360mm , and now the memories at 88 degrees.

Now i'm waiting a solution from alfa if not, i will return the kit and i will request also my money for the pads... I see they also pm- other members and they give the solution to replace the pads with corect ones from their pockets, how is normal in my opinion.
This is marks .... from alphacools pads

When did you write the email? Have you also checked your SPAM folder? It may well be that your card is affected by Nvidia's package problem (enclosed is Igor's contribution as an explanation if not yet known).


If this applies to your card, then you will of course receive the required pads free of charge. So far, no one has had to purchase the required pads. But, our support must know - if you buy & try the pads in advance, then it is your own responsibility.
