3090 FE Thermal Pad Mod (-20°C) | Improve your mining hashrate!

Step by step guide on how to replace the thermal pads on the 3090 FE, including a complete teardown and the dimensions of each pads to cut. You’ll see the drop in temperature and increase in Ethereum hashrate after the mod at the end of the video.

N.B: I’m aware that I did touch the pads with my fingers in the video which you should generally avoid doing but what you don’t see is that I actually clean my fingers between each shots.
Also, you should also change the thermal paste on the GPU. I didn’t receive mine in time to make the video.
