    Anyone know what 3080s come in a Cyberpower PC?

    No, this one is 2x8-pin.

    Anyone know what 3080s come in a Cyberpower PC?

    It looks like, from a quick google search, a Gainward RTX 3080 Phoenix GS.

    Oh Snap, Won Newegg Shuffle....To Buy or not to buy

    Eh, it's a bit more than $200, especially if I sell locally, but you're probably right. I've waited this long, may as well indulge.

    Oh Snap, Won Newegg Shuffle....To Buy or not to buy

    I entered the shuffle for the 3070 Ti. After having no success for the 3080 and 3070, I was not hopeful. I chose the 3 available options at MSRP (a Zotac Gaming, EVGA XC3, and Asus TUF), and I was given the option to buy the EVGA XC3 card, so I did. Now that I've got it, I don't really know what...

    Upgrade current laptop or buy new for older parents?

    It does not overheat, at least not that I can tell. It's just painfully slow, especially at startup, and when loading websites.

    Upgrade current laptop or buy new for older parents?

    As it is for my older parents, Windows is ideal. They aren't going to learn Linux, or put up with much change. Also, I know very little about Linux to help with anything.

    Upgrade current laptop or buy new for older parents?

    My parents laptop sucks. It's an older Dell Inspiron 15 3543 with an i3-5005u, 6gb, 1tb rust drive. ETA: I have come to learn that this trash-panda laptop only has one SODIMM slot, and can only accommodate 8gb max ram. Which makes things double awkward, because now I'm not sure as to how it gets...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    It says it's in stock. It will let me add it to my cart. It will not let me check out. I click the checkout button, and nothing happens.

    Is building a 2500k machine today worth it?

    Sure, but for $10 more on eBay you can get an RX 470 4GB card. I think this is the right play. A Z series board that will allow you to overclock is going to blow your budget sky high. An older Optiplex that you can get off your local Craigslist/FB Marketplace will do what you need it to do. I...

    Wraith Prism questions?

    Back to the issue... I just did this, and hopefully it helps. I set the points in the Gigabyte fan suite to be similar to yours. I hope I find a more concrete solution besides shutting off boost in the bios, fan curves, or spending more money on cooling sometime soon.

    Wraith Prism questions?

    Yeah, you right brah. I just was smoking the reefer, and looked at the pretty, blinky lights, and there is no real problem here.

    Wraith Prism questions?

    Yeah, no worries, I will give it a shot. It certainly can't make things worse.

    Wraith Prism questions?

    Yeah, I have the power plan installed then, because last night I watched the hardware canucks video and they talked about it there and I was looking at it then.

    Wraith Prism questions?

    As previously stated earlier in the thread when I started having the issue in August, I changed the PSU out for a Cooler Master MWE Gold 750w psu. The power supply has more than enough juice for the card. I am indeed on the latest bios for the board, I updated it all before I even installed...

    Wraith Prism questions?

    Cool story: So when I originally bought this setup, I had bought a Gigabyte B450 Aorus M motherboard, because I wanted to build an m-atx build, instead of a larger ATX build. But I couldn't decide on a case that I liked, so I built it using the above Asus Prime X370 Pro board that I had...
