GALAX Shows Off GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) Edition Graphics Card

GALAX has today decided to take the lid off its upcoming premium GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) edition graphics card and showcase to the world what the company has been working on. The HOF edition is usually GALAX's highest-end custom graphics card design with one simple goal - ultimate performance. Featuring all-white aesthetics, the card has a 12-layer white PCB with a white three fan air cooler. The air cooler features three fans with one in the middle being 92 mm and the other two being 102 mm. The card comes paired with HOF Panel III, representing a small 4.3 inch LCD screen that can stand on its own or stick to the GPU using magnets. It is used for some software diagnostics like temperature monitoring.

The GPU comes with a diamond-shaped aluminium backplate used for additional heat dissipation. When it comes to power delivery, there are three 8-pin connectors (also colored in white to match the aesthetics), that supply 26 VRM phases for the power delivery system. Such configuration is envisioned for extreme overclocking purposes like LN2. There are two BIOS versions, P and S variants, where they are used for maximum performance or quieter operation respectively. The boost frequency of this GPU is 1875 MHz (using one-click OCing), however, any buyer of such a card is not going to just use it like that and will probably prefer to push higher frequencies.

That's a lot of bling right there, can't say I don't dig it, but I feel like a little less is more on the monitor. A simple number for the temp or fan speed would've been enough. Than staring into it for a few minutes to read all the readings. I wonder when mounted vertically if the display flips accordingly :)

I mean, it does look cool though.

This brings up a whole new consideration for GPU reviews: just how much does the optional giant display hurt thermals if it's mounted to the GPU compared to free-standing? That covers a good 1/3rd of the top exhaust of the card, so it'll definitely have an effect.

I wonder how much that screen will impact gpu sag.
Would it come with a bracket or pole for the gpu sag?

Probably not much but you got me wondering nonetheless. We'll have to wait for the reviews then.

It's definitely going to affect airflow, so it'll have some effect, but whether that effect is big enough to notice or it'll just cause fan speeds to bump up slightly or clocks to drop by 30MHz or something is another thing. Given how these things fluctuate on GPUs it's probably going to be drowned out by everything else, but it's worth taking a look at still.

That's pretty much it.
