Just replaced the pads on my watercooled RTX 3090 FE -> -4 degrees

I replaced only the pads directly on top of the GDDR6X (front and back).
Temps dropped by 4-6 degrees under the exact same conditions (70->66°C at 25°C ambient).
I can recommend also investing the 20€ for good thermal pads, if you are spending this much on a water block and will open up the card anyway.
