    Who uses a 3090 for 1080 and 1440? And.....why give two shits about the menu screen? Damn.....

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I could cover my 3080 with 2 packs of EKWB pads, cost me 6 bucks a pack. I want to say, 1.5 mm thick. So 6 bucks is roughly 24 zl, right? The putty is widely used, I guess because its thick. Not really reuseable. Thermal putty is 12 dollars for 20g more than enough ...... so all for 80 zl. From...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I agree. You fussed with doing all this junk with fans, complain over and over about the thermal pad gap and then dont fix it. I also dont get the constant complaining about ASUS. They tested your gpu, what else should they do? The gpu works fine. Even your local shop says so. By the way, did...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I dont see any issue either. Also, the card isnt running when you take the photo. As it operates and heats up any expansion in the pcb would increase contact at that point.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I still think you have displaced your anger. Again, ASUS tested your card and it's fine. You posted results after they looked at it and all the temperatures are fine, in fact lower. The thermal pads look fine. I hear nothing on the video you made. Even with a cell phone, if my wife had her...

    3080 Ti @ $1299 ???

    That is very true and a very popular misconception. nvidia sells chips and I suppose engineering support for PCB construction. If the price goes up after the scalpers get ahold of the product, nvidia sees no benefit. Sure if the product is crazy in demand, nvidia sells all their chips and...

    3080 Ti @ $1299 ???

    Given the 2 year plague of low stock, I would say now is the time to grab the best you can.....that said, who knows what prices will do in a month when all the usual resellers have boatloads of stock. Given the scalping on the release of the 3080s, and the difficulty to buy one, Id bet we'll see...

    3080 xc3 Ultra Gaming status?

    Hahaha......Im in the same boat. I queued up in Oct 2020, nothin. EVGA shifted me to a LHR version queue. EVGA seems to have put all their energy into the FTW3 cards. That said, Im seeing more and more stock for sale over the last 10 days, but I hold out no hope for the queue. I finally bought a...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I dont think in this case ASUS has any fault. First, you say yourself, that gaming is fine, no issues. Second, the shop and ASUS tested your card and found no issue. Third, your fan curve is not appropiate. I think your anger is misdirected. If the heatsink bothers you, buy some damn pads and...

    Far Cry 6

    I uninstalled the game. First, bad game. Second, crashed frequently, froze up, just a poorly implemented game.

    You can get power supply reviews from Paul Johnson on theFPSreview. They don't do as many, but same guy and pretty much the same format. I still come here a couple times a week to look at for sale stuff. I sell things actually quite successfully here from time to time still. I'd love to see...

    EVGA RTX 3080 FTW Ultra......for sale, Brand new.

    Ebay sale by my son. Brand new unopened, sealed. He already bought one last year. Took a year in the queue. Fair price......cost him 1000 once paid for tax and shipping.
