New Copper Plate Mod Helps Reduce Memory Temperature by 20% in GeForce RTX 30 GPUs

An interesting change was made last month by DandyWorks, replacing the thermal pads for the memory of the RTX 3070 Ti graphics card with copper shims. This resulted in a 46°C lower memory temperature.

It should be noted that this is not a new change, it has been around for quite some time but has only now gained popularity due to the powerful GPUs on the market. Copper can be easily applied to memory cooling. This can be done by ordering custom copper plates for your graphics cards. These custom signs are easy to make; there are a few companies on the market that make a wide variety of NVIDIA RTX 30 GPUs.

This is much easier to see on a video as shown by DandyWorks. This process requires a lot of cleaning and some thermal paste and can be made simpler. However, it is important to note here that once you decide to install your own custom copper plates, the warranty will no longer be valid.
