Fujipoly Sarcon GR130A 1mm sheet ordered directly from Fujipoly. Probably the best thermal pad available out there.
Vertical slot installed and ready to go
Some RGB, though it's usually turned off except the pump and CPU block which I use to monitor temperature brackets
Size difference between FE waterblock and stock cooler
3090 Aorus Xtreme vs FE block
This is an evolution of the project Matnav which I built to commemorate AMD's 50th anniversary. Going by my project naming schemes being a mashup of the CPU and GPU codename, introducing project Ampeer (Ampere/Vermeer)! Upgrades from the previous project include a 3090 FE, 5950x and 4x8GB G.Skill Royal 3600 C14 sticks. I also needed more clean airflow, so I stuck 3 120mm slim fans at the bottom and a 92mm fan and heatsinks hidden behind the 3090FE for memory cooling. In order to match the colour of the 3090 FE block with the CPU block, I opted for the XC9 block with AM4 mounting brackets, which fits in well i think. Needed re-routing of the pipes obviously and I'm a sucker for straight lines, so there are a few runs with 3 or 4 bends but eventually managed to get everything together. Hope you like it!
