What models of the RTX 3060 are easy to deshroud?

edited April 2022 in Graphics Cards

I have kinda an odd question and I'm hoping someone could shed some light on this. I want to buy a RTX 3060 since they are at MSRP and I'm wondering which model is easy to take the shroud off and replace the fans. I have some 120mm Noctua fans collecting dust so I want to put them to good use by doing the deshroud mod on my 3060. I figure most are relatively easy that aren't a founders edition card.

    Greetings, this isn't information we would have here at Micro Center. Doing this would be at your own risk as how the cards are cooled by the manufacturer is how they are meant to be sold.

    I would assume you would be able to find possible tips/information on this on places like reddit or possible YouTube videos on the subject.
