LIVE: RTX 3090 Overclocking (Air & Liquid Nitrogen)

  • Published on Sep 24, 2020 veröffentlicht
  • This stream does two things: One, we're testing frequency vs. temperature GPU Boost scaling, two we're overclocking the RTX 3090 FTW3 on air to see if it's useful for an eventual competitive card.
    We are low on inventory of our 1 Million Subs limited shirt. Grab one while you can! store.gamersnexus.net/product... (you get something cool, high quality, and get to support our further test equipment purchases at the same time. Thank you for 1 million subscribers! It's been a crazy ~13 years since we started the website, and a crazy 11 on Clip-Share).
    We will be using the EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 for this overclocking effort. We will also be testing the RTX 3090 Founders Edition card for frequency scaling versus temperature (not overclocking, just GPU Boost alone).

    “I’m gonna keep my mouth shut until I can do more research because I don’t want to put bad info out there” this is one of the large reasons I watch this channel. Everything I have seen from Steve is incredibly solid and I absolutely dig it.

      @rain #4701 I was being silly about performance fluctuating when Fans set to RGB, & Red being better because Red makes thins faster,
      But yes some RGB Programs can increase CPU Usage, so depending on PC performance it can have a real affect, but it will not make a playable experience unplayable

    Really interesting to finally see a nitrogen over clocking of a GPU, always thought it was a parlour trick, but I get it a little bit more now, and that it has a legitimate place in demonstrating GPU, and CPU overclocking.

    I always wanted to put my PC outside when it's -40 and see what my temps would be. Or at least intake cold air from inside through a window or something. Too worried about damaging my parts though.

      @Leonel Leonel He can make a sealed plastic-glass box and put the PC in it, no air will go in or out from it so in the box will be left only the air with normal humidity from the room he used to assemble it, the environmental temperature will do it's job and cool off the box.
      The main issue tho, is that -40 degrees is too low for the PC to boot up so he has to heat the PC first and keep it around 0-5 degrees celsius (if he did mean celsius and not fahrenheit).

    When the cards released i think the power circuitry was an issue with certain brands. Not sure if this was fixed but 2 months later ive picked up an EVGA RTX3090 Gaming ULTRA and it has two of the weaker caps. Even though it draws the most power stock. Whatever optimisations needed to happen have obviously taken place as my card has been fine(the card lasted just over a month, i went with the asus tuf 3090). Although if i dont set a fps limit the card will crash to desktop when streaming. ^^

      @over I will say it's extremely annoying that people will verbally thrash folks with either the means or determination to aquire either high end hardware before the shortage or all hardware at this juncture. It just gets old man. All of the comment sections on any piece of "good stuff gear" will get a large number of comments like the individual above. I have a rig with a 3090 and I also have a 3090 I'm just waiting to finish off my from scratch fabricated deck PC and I'm not a piece of shit or a bad person and I'm not laughing at any fucking body about their lot in life. Its guys like him that made me decide to not make videos on my case builds or tutorials. I may still post a short video of my case that looks basically like a built in the wall aquarium but I doubt it.

    For wildly moving stuff around i always have a simple 150mbit powerline set for temporary use around,
    one with 2port lan, one with 1lanport and wlan.
    Fast enough for internet streaming and less cables to trip over and no wlandrivers needed.
    I have worked with climatic chambers (last ones were these www.cts-umweltsimulation.de/en/products/climate-c.html ) , if you dont need ultrafast change of temps and controlled humidity,
    they are pretty easy to build with a combination of freezer (pump liquid through as oversized heatsink) and an air heater + sps like "siemens logo!". Thermal mass makes it easier to get stable temps.
    You always have to cool down a bit further to get the condensation away and then heat up a bit to be left with dry air.
    Try to get a used/refurbished one. I guess you wont really need a large usable volume
    or fast automated tracking of temperature curves so it should cost below 5k bucks.

    Do you think some of the add in board partners will start to adopt Nvidia's new split cooler design by making the back half of the cooler a blower style to remove some heat completely out the back and then using the front fan or "fans" to blow the remaining heat out the sides instead of Nvidia's pass-through design? :/

    I just got lucky and found one of these cards in stock at a micro center today (bought it). As I was walking around in the store there was a fella on the phone talking with a friend of his asking the friend if he wanted him to buy the card. As he was doing this I began looking for a store rep to help me get the card out of the locked compartment so I can buy it. 😁

    Man I remember the old days when Over Clocking actually meant something, you could get real performance boosts out of GPU's and CPU's back then. Now, the cards run at max boost by themselves so OCing is pretty meaningless.

      tbh it's a good thing.. the fact that you could buy a product for 500+ dollars and only get 75% of the performance it was capable of was a rip off. does it ruin the fun of overclocking? sure but i'll deal with it if means even casual users get the full capability of a cpu.

    • Natraj C
      Natraj C 2 years ago

      @MsFearco Yea Intel has to applauded for this at least, their K series chips do meaningfully OC and give a good performance boost and I am on Ryzen myself now btw meaning I have to do some extreme RAM tuning to get nice performance uplifts and I never found that interesting. Still, I am thinking of upgrading to 3600 low latency ram kits from my current 3200 kit which I am running on xmp profile.

    Set up a drip of liquid nitrogen that way you can control how fast you cool it and so there's no torch needed. (do some adjusting and experimenting and I think you'll get it right eventually, that being not too long but long enough to say eventually)

    Regarding the plastic backplate: you might actually be surprised. I'm not saying it works, but don't discount it on principle; look up AN11113 from Nexperia regarding thermal design for LFPAK MOSFETs. It's now obsoleted as a design guide, but the data remains interesting. They tested black plastic, bare aluminum, and black anodized aluminum as enclosure materials in contact with the PCB assembly and found that plastic still has a significant heat sinking effect particularly in topside configurations, and may actually outperform polished aluminum in some circumstances due to superior radiation.

    12:20 & 1:26:04 are an example of the correct BoM caps to use to prevent power noise at higher clock frequencies. Some cards unfortunately did not realize the importance of these little caps.
    3:32:33​ is an example of the use of all MCLL caps.
    Edit: There are different types of POSCAPS 220's and 470's and 330's - Higher number has more top voltage (operating range) that also added noise (specific filtering). I used 470's when I replaced the old caps on my PS3 60GB.
    1:59:09 Steve reads the official statement from EVGA
    2:01:00 Example of pre production with no MCLL caps from EVGA.

    • Sitarow

      @Audaxxx indeed thank you for clarifying that. Does that in turn mean if a capacitor can carry more charge and during that charging cycle results in more noise? Or is it a unique way interfere by harmonious waveform that may cause some sort of destructive frequency in the GPU?

    • Audaxxx
      Audaxxx 2 years ago +1

      Higher capacitance value doesn't mean it can operate at a higher voltage. The voltage rating is what determines the voltage it can operate at. The capacitance determines the amount of charge the capacitor can carry and therefore the amount of noise filtering it can provide.

    Here are excerpts from a couple of Igor's Lab articles on the 3080/90 ...
    "Igor's Lab Aug 27, 2020 = NVIDIA has also completely sealed off the evaluation drivers this time. I don’t even think Furmark, let alone Time Spy, is running anymore, but only NVPunish (a stress testing program) for the thermal tests... from a board partner’s point of view it is of course quite strange when you produce something you don’t even know how fast it will be in the end.
    Igor's Lab Sept 25, 2020 - “reference board” PG132, which can also be understood as a so-called Base Design. Especially the backside and especially the area below the BGA is interesting. What is interesting about such drawings and the so-called BoM (Bill of Materials) is that you are offered different placement alternatives.
    Below the BGA we see the six NECESSARY capacitors for filtering high frequencies on the voltage rails, i.e. NVVDD and MSVDD.
    The BoM and the drawing from June leave it open whether large-area POSCAPs (Conductive Polymer Tantalum Solid Capacitors) are used (marked in red), or rather the somewhat more expensive MLCCs (Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitor).
    ...According to the list and specifications of Nvidia, both are possible...
    This also applies to the question of whether the BoM was subsequently changed again to completely exclude the exclusive use of POSCAPs/SP-CAPs."
    From reading the full articles it sure sounds like Nvidia may not have provided working drivers to AIB partners until late in the development process and may have known about capacitor issues, since the FE cards have 4 poscaps and 2 mlcc's ... but it appears the BoM may at one point indicated that 6 poscaps would work? Would love if GN could confirm any of what is in Igor's work and if I am reading it correctly?

    Your MSI card probably didn't crash because they used 470 caps, compared to other cards that used 330s. It's all explained here. clip-share.net/video/GPFKS8jNNh0/video.html

    Just an observation about your online store as of 9/26. You probably should remove the note that the Medium Modmats are in stock and shipping. It's the first thing I saw and was thinking of purchasing one but haven't seen the "Sold Out" change for a while.

    Anyone have a time stamp for when he starts air cooled over clocking ?

    I'm really interested in seeing the performance metrics comparing a 2080 (or Ti) overclocked to a 3080's power draw and a 3080 underclocked to match a 2080(/Ti)'s power draw, and compare the performance of the two when power levels are equal.

    One question, I know its not about this card, a 2060sc at what temps should be the best???

    Nope! in a way ur right about "not needing monitors anymore" with the 3090 cards that becuse PC monitors will become Tvs

    Wow just casually pouring liquid nitrogen into multiple bottles with no protective gloves on his hands 😅 no fear!

      Liquid nitrogen won't burn you with brief hand contact. The Leidenfrost Effect + water's heat capacity means humans can (briefly) touch things like molten metal streams without being burned. The King of Random has a video on here of him throwing it into his own face.
      You do want to wear gloves when handling liquid N2 if exposure can occur while grasping or carrying something heavy or over long distances, if only because you'll tend to clench rather than do a careful set down. Also, you definitely do NOT want to wear just *any* gloves. They'll trap the stuff and burn you.

    I’m so skimpy with my materials. Steve triggers my metaphorical OCD every time he dumps a gallon of nitrogen on the floor rather than just use a fat funnel or something.

    Since the 3080 does not support multi GPU, could you do two 3090:s in SLi / nVlink? Maybe then it can run in 8K :D

    3:45:38 for those interested in seeing why I'd pay $5 to ask when the next graphics vid from Andrew will be - check out Ask GN 100 and scroll to the question at 17:58 "Is Ray Tracing Actually Beneficial?"
    It's a crime against technology that it's been 2 year since he's been on xD
    edit: he was also featured in a video on ray tracing last February (part 1 of a ? part series called "100% Ray-Traced Game" [this installment titled "Faking RTX Global Illuminations vs RTX"] - so maybe Steve's talking about part 2 in his answer.)

      for the three of you that don't already know you shouldn't edit comments given a "heart" - this comment actually received a heart from GN but I edited it and lost the heart xD edited again to bring it back to the original but the damage was done. Let that be a lesson to you!

    New viewer here, you’ve used EVGA cards in the 2 recent streams. Is it because they were available with you or because EVGA cards generally perform better?

    DeBuer(forgive the spelling) showed by soldering the better MLC caps replacing all the original ones the card held over 100mhz better clocks. stability was far better, you might want to copy him and mod that 3090. Great work on the LN2pot BTW.

    @GN how come when Linus played doom on an 8K tv it looked waaaay "smoother" and had a locked 60~ fps frame rate? yet under LN2 on a pc rig, it struggles to hit over 15?

    • Andrew Burns

      No RTX and the doom/8k experience was heavily optimized. Linus said on WAN show that the TV was useless for anything else and a $300 TV had more features
