    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    Why would I need any luck? I built it. I’m already gaming on it. It works well.

    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    I see me happily gaming on a real fast little system. So.. like it's hard to care what you are seeing.

    Corsair, EK, and bykski seem to be coming out with options.

    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    Of course, but it fits reasonably well from those I have seen done. There's even one guy who got it in with the front panel IO still in place. although seeing his clearnaces on things, I'm pretty sure I'd want to shoot myself in the face before everything was reasonably in place, and wouldn't...

    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    Truly fucking brilliant. You do realize this thread was started before we had actual sizes and pretty much just knew there would be something called a 3090 from a leaked name, right? Also you can actually fit the asus tuf 3090 in the case if you do it right. You can probably fit any of them in...

    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    Ok cpu temp was boring. Latest chipset drivers from amd and at idle it bounces between 37-39c. Felt like trying out a game rather than benchmarking and gpu hit 71c and cpu hit 69c. So very undramatic. It is a little space heater though but the guess that means I’m getting the heat out of the...

    SFF and 3090/big navi viable?

    Just as a note. The 3080 cards NEED a true SFX PSU in this case. THe SX800 being sfx-l plus very protruding connectors just does not fit. But I got my 3080FE, and I snagged an SX700-PT psu because they exist, and frankly the process is pretty non dramatic.I haven't beaten it to death with...

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    FYI, the sx800-lti will NOT work with a 3080 in an ncase M1. It is jsut too big. I snagged a SX700-PT and that is working fine for my 3080 build so far. But of note the cords are more stupid than the sx800's. The 8 pin cables for the video card are different lengths and come in really long and...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Right now I think the best shot that is more amenable to humans is going for a fe at Best Buy using the mobile app set up for persistent log in. I also used Apple Pay for fast check out, but others just used their shaved payment method. 1) bb is entering stock into the system in weird sized...

    I stopped putting in a lot of effort. I just joined the discord channel that's been posted here repeatedly and check stuff out when it notified me. Snagged a 3080 FE at best buy. I probably put in a some total of about two hour's worth of effort over 2 weeks launching links on my phone and...

    Need some help with RGB strip lights in shelves. Where did I F up?

    So my wife wanted my kid to get some stackable cubes to use as a book shelf. So I built them. The kid wanted them to be RGB lit. So I was like sure, it's like $50 with connectors. So... that was a bad idea. I've not got them installed, and while they tested ok, Linking them up I can't get...

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    They might, what’s the state of dlss and parents? A quick search showed a Sony patent on a system to acquire the training images, which implies something like that will be used in the ps5.

    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    Well the first I had that CLAIMED it was 3d was the matrox millenium. That was effectively a load of shit. Then millenium g200. I forget what games I played on that, but it actually did something. Then I went geforce 256.

    **The state of GPU's and their purchasability** This is a rant post, anyone else agree with me AFTER you read this?

    yeah well now that 1080ti sli performance, plus raytracing, and more thanks to DLSS is available in a one card solution without the hassle of SLI or the often crap in game artifacts of same. You either find that compelling or you don't. If you have the current gen performance as you say. Great...

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    Absolutely. That is why I'm inclined to think RT is not going to be a flop. It probably won't change the face of gaming, but it'll be a nice to have eye candy feature.

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    It could kick ass at RT. But I doubt it. Regardless of the performance of either team green or team red in the PC world, RT is going to be defined by the consoles and that's that for the vast majority of games. Team red will be good enough, or RT is toast for 5 years because console. I'm...

    Which RTX 3090 customer to choose

    My take from reading various build posts especially for thermals in small cases, I'd put it like this. Every single card out there is able to hit massive clocks from the perspective of the silicon. If you are OCing, it's going to be about the support the card gives to the silicon. Since you...

    If Navi matches 3080 in Raster performance but not Ray Tracing... will we care?

    We know the PLENTY about amd raytracing performance. Ok, we know next to nothing, but what we do know is the only thing we will have to know. What we do know is that AMD will set the base standard for raytracing because both next gen consoles will support ray tracing and AMD is the chip in...

    The 970 is still a capable card? Heresy

    Why are you surprised. The reality of the current games publishing world is that 90%+ of games have their core performance dictated by console capabilities. The ps4/xbone came out the end of 2013. The 980 came out 2014. I would expect that the current gen with 8 cores and the graphics ability to...

    **The state of GPU's and their purchasability** This is a rant post, anyone else agree with me AFTER you read this?

    This is a fairly unreasonable position. Yeah, you just want what you want and such, but these aren't cheap items. In order to meet this level of demand they would have to have a shit ton of capital tied up in inventory. Right before AMD lunches big navi. Right before next gen consoles hit. Quite...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    FYI, you can't fit anything but a really stubby cared with an sfx-l PSU at least not with the silverstone SX800-lti and how the power connectors protrude. Sigh. SO do I go hunting down a new psu that doesn't exist or a new case that will take a month to arrive?

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    Optimum tech had a video with a bunch of sfx psus and the 3080. 600 was sufficient especially if you undervolt and aren't using a high tdp processor that is overcooked. It's worth a watch.

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    Sf750 has been out of stock everywhere. Currently you can get one for the affordable price of $286. I needed one and snagged the st800 for $186. Now that is running up too. ~$220. It should be sufficient and keep me in the efficiency sweet spot under full load.

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    I was looking for more info on experiences with teh SX80-LTI so have had to go forum spelunking. I'm sitting here working on a build with a 3080 in an ncase M1. My how these comments have aged badly as now the hot build is a 125W TDP 10900k and a 320w graphics card. Hehe.

    Leaked Galax slide confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 inferiority to the RTX 2080 Ti

    My guess is that the 3070 will be slower at rasterization performance than the 2080ti, but will have better RTX perfromance and better DLSS performance. The latter will make it possible to match so80ti performance, just not setting per setting, but rather based on frame rates and visual appearance.

    Your nuances really don't matter much at all. There's some simple things we don't know the answer to yet. One of them is how many nvidia can make and will make. The other is how much the crypto miners want them. If they are killer crypto miners, then unless nivida can make a shit ton of...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    He does say that his sources told him that the launch represented about 5% of stock for 2020. Which as I watch various polls, we are nearing 5% on who got cards vs demand. A way to reality check these claims a bit is if anyone paid attention to the scalpers during the 2080 launch. I would...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I only see two paths to this getting fixed and they both rely on someone wanting a piece of the money pie that the scalpers are getting. 1) Some retailer decides to make a purchase system that is friendly to real users rather than to flippers because the thing of value to them is the loyal...

    So much for NVIDIA claiming 10 gigs of vram would not be a limitation

    I think the general strategy is going ot be DLSS and data streaming. If it is playing back at 4k and looks good, I'm not sure people are oging to care how you got there.

    Power efficiency, AMD vs Nvidia new cards?

    If one trusts the rumor mill, AMDs top of the line is supposed to be pulling 280w while getting close to 3080 numbers on rasterized performance. So from a gamer perspective amd will likely be better, but not by enough for any gamer to care vs the end result. crypto minign you can't tell unless...

    New NVidia 12 pin GPU connector is only for space savings, not increasing power.

    Mental slip. I've got a silverstone PSU waiting for my build. I just came off reading a thread elsewhere on the program you guys will be running where you can get the cable free with the right documentation. Unforutnately I'm going to try and cram it in an itx case and needed an SFX PSU and...

    Reusing Corsiar HX850 from 2015 due to shortage

    The only thing I can think of is ASUS's quasi warning in their promo video for their cards where they put warning LEDs on the cards to tell you if there are power regulation issues. They seem to think old PSUs can have power regulation issues due to components being closer to end of life.
