That is why I got it. She kept head butting me for some reason or another and I was not sure why.

Now I will know why. Also we have a cruise coming up in a weeks time with a few other guys.

I want to be able to hear what they talking about. I will be the odd one out without a comms attached to my Helmut.

So after a month or two, something arrived in the post

Getting there slowly, checking for alignment and getting screws in place

Final check to make sure it all seems to be together right.

After a few hours and she is ready to go

Tested and temps have come down. Not as much as I was expecting, but definitely has come down.

I was so used to the temps I had with the I7 4770 and the EVGA 1080Ti, I was expecting to be in the high 30's or low 40s.

I was on 49 for CPU and 55 for the GPU.

 

After a couple of days though.........

My Case comes with a Vertical card holder, just does not have the PCI riser cable.

Also this XFX 6900X is so small, it is not needed.

The RTX3090 on the other hand.

This is mine at idle, CPU temps are alot higher than my Intel CPU was

when gaming for any extended period of time I will see the occasional spike to 70 for the CPU running 60 t0 65 majority of the time and GPU runs around the 60 mark

with all that GPU cooler bling you have to install it vertically

I have a spare riser cable in my supplies, do you want it?

 

this one

I have opened the carboard box but never opened the plastic 

never used it cos bracket I bought had its own riser cable

Are you asking me?

 

My Radeon XT6900X now has water cooling. It is working, however the temps are higher than I am used to, in comparison to the I7 and 1080Ti I had previously.

I now own a RTX3090, however the water block has come off it. It is being used in another project and so that rig has no water cooling. 

For this reason it is back on the stock cooler for the time being.

 

Yes my XT6900X is still in my gaming pc and will stay there. It does what it needs to and I have no issues playing Valheim.
