Prep guide for RTX 30 series GPUs prior to submersion
About to test your product with Nvidia RTX 3070 and 3090 models. Prior to this testing, I am reading the GPUs need to be prepped. I see some commentary from the support team about the necessary steps to take, but wanted to ask if detailed documentation exists on the steps required prior to deploying my assets in your product.
Appreciate the guidance.

At this time we don't have a specific documentation set for that device to prepare it for immersion:
In general we recommend replacing the thermal paste with liquid metal thermal paste, indium foil, or thermal epoxy.
Clean the board using ElectroCool before immersion to remove dust and other manufacturing detritus
That its it! Now you can safely immerse your device.
The final thing you can add would be the removal of the fans assuming you have the firmware to avoid the fan failure alarms or you use a fan delete circuit.
