Today we updated our lists of graphic cards with RTX 3060 Ti & RTX 3070 compatible with The First and The Beast. The information available is as below:
Riser - a riser might be required with your graphic card into The First and is mandatory with The Beast whatever the card chosen
Taped heatsinks kit ("HS kit") - Depending on its TDP, your card might need a kit of heatsinks for VRMs and memories (available here)
VRM cooling machined - Depending on its TDP, your card might need our VRM cooling machined. The VRM cooling machined replaces the spreader.
VRM cooling machined compatibility ("VRM HS") - Depending on its architecture, your card might need a Large VRM cooling machined, a Small VRM cooling machined or both of them (available here)
Spreader - Cards with a TDP higher than 250W require a full covering spreader. The spreader compatibility is updated regularly. The spreader is only compatible with The Beast and included in "The Beast & Accessories" package.

Note that only the cards with a TDP lower than 200W are listed as "compatible" with The First. But you can access to our full list of compatible graphic cards via the original document available on the "compatibility" page. If you plan to assemble a card with a TDP higher than 200W into The First, or higher than 250W into The Beast, you will need to optimize its power.
More information about the optimization & its impact via our last video below and our dedicated article. Contact the team if you need more information or some help with the components chosen for your configuration!
