Noctua NF-A12 alternatives - regular and slim
It recommends de-shrouding the GPU, removing the plastic shroud and fans, and instead letting the nearby bottom case fans blow directly onto the GPU heatsink to cool it. They claim it cools better than the fans the GPU came with, and has the added benefit of also bringing in some additional cooling to the case overall.
Seems pretty cool, but the fans they recommend are the very expensive and seemingly hard to find in Canada Noctua NF-A12. They also mentioned 2 cheaper alternatives, the Noctua NF-P12 Redux, and the Arctic P12.

With the tight space in that case, if you don't deshroud the 3080 you can probably only fit 15mm fans in the bottom such as the 15mm version of the Noctua NF-A12 (NF-A12x15). I may go that route, not sure.
I'd appreciate any suggestions in either direction. Tonnes of info like this out there but I like to get RFD opinions.
