    SteelSeries Apex Pro Wired Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Adjustable Actuation Switches [$99.99 Shipped]

    LFaWolf I have one, and then I bought one for my wife as well because she complained about accidentally pressing certain "pinkie keys" when she was working, so I bought a second for her. She still hits the keys but has made them with a longer actuation point so that they don't register. Mine...

    Does this EVGA 3080 Ti just much cooler than expected, or is there another sensor I'm not looking at?

    I never reduced power limit, increased it actually, and the purpose of using Cyberpunk 2077 is because just standing somewhere I can maintain 100% GPU load and max out my heat, something I couldn't reliably do in 3DMark or Bright Memory Infinite Ray Tracing Benchmark because of the delays...

    Does this EVGA 3080 Ti just much cooler than expected, or is there another sensor I'm not looking at?

    Mchart is right, overclocking doesn't really have the intended effect because we hit power limits or thermal limits... BUT, undervolting is the new overclocking. Lowers power and heat so that those are no longer preventing your max boost. Here's a quick guide...

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    Nobu is spot on, but I'll add a little insight if the protections work. Immediate system crash, black screen, then you'll see BIOS splash as it reboots. Once there is draw greater than supply it doesn't take much to push those protections out of tolerance.

    Thanks for the bump. Still a great card and can max out almost everything at 2560x1440. Only game in my collection I couldn't was Cyberpunk 2077 which is what prompted the upgrade.

    Had this issue happen recently on my 1080ti with an older 2k Acer Predator 144hz monitor. After much troubleshooting it ended up being that one DP input on the monitor. You've done the cable, try driver and firmware next, but don't be afraid to buy another monitor. Just buy it from someplace...

    Reduce NVR sound level

    My first thought was to build an isolation box with sound absorbing acoustic foam on the inside, and you could use larger low-speed Noctua fans for intake and exhaust to help cycle the air. But then I thought that if you design it right you might even be able to take the top cover of your NVR...
