Sycom, a Japanese PC maker, has started selling its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti single graphics card that features a bespoke hybrid cooling system that uses up to five fans. Sycom’s special graphics card can guarantee a GPU clock of 1.80 GHz at 65 degrees Celsius and is exclusively available as a built-to-order option for the company’s high-performance G Master Hydro desktop computers.
The Sycom GeForce RTX 3090 Ti comes with Asetek’s GeForce RTX 3080/3090 hybrid liquid cooling system with a 240mm radiator fitted with two Noctua NF-A12x25 ULN fans to ensure quiet operation, reports Hermitage Akihabara. Asetek’s LCS is used to cool the GPU and GDDR6X memory via a dedicated memory cooling plate which is in direct contact with the water block. Meanwhile, to cool the board’s voltage regulator module (VRM), Sycom uses another three-fan cooling system.
Since Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is rated for a thermal design power (TDP) of up to 450W, it requires cooling for the GPU, GDDR6X memory, and VRM. Therefore, Sycom’s hybrid cooling system with five fans makes a lot of sense for this card, especially for end users who plan to overclock the card further. The manufacturer claims that its cooler reduces the temperature of an air-cooled GeForce RTX 3090 Ti by 10 to 15 degrees Celsius.
As for the performance benefits afforded by the new hybrid cooling, Sycom claims that the card can maintain an average frequency of 1.802 GHz in the Final Fantasy XV benchmark for around 30 minutes at 65 degrees Celsius.
Undoubtedly, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is a product for hardcore enthusiasts with deep pockets who want every last bit of performance that can be squeezed out of a GPU (because they aren’t satisfied with the out-of-the-box performance of GPUs). best gaming graphics card). For this, it is not surprising that there are manufacturers of bespoke solutions that equip these cards with even more extreme coolers than those designed by Nvidia or its partners.
