Most Critical Review

Great performing card with major overheating issues

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 GAMING OC 24G Video Card, GV-N3090GAMING OC-24GD

Pros: - Very fast , plays everything on my 1440p/165Hz LG monitor on Ultra settings easily. - Subtle RGB , not too glaring. - Selectable OC or Silent BIOS (prefer Silent to minimize noise).

Cons: - Card started to throttle and overheat badly a year after purchase. Upon examining the inside I discovered that the power connectors had started to melt from the heat - (see photo). Apparently, the fans had also shut down at some point due to the fan cable (second picture being damaged. The heat also damaged my RGB connector so the RGB lighting doesn't work anymore. Couldn't afford to be without my GPU for any length of time so I replaced the thermal paste and all the thermal pads with much better components, and cannibalized an older GPU for a replacement fan cable. GPU runs much cooler than it did when I first got it.

Overall Review: Would I recommend it? Yes, but with major caveats - I'm really disappointed at how awful the thermal pads were in the card, and how the fan cable was installed so it got kinked and eventually broke.
