    Wow a $2000 3080 ti on the shuffle today, are they nuts?

    Best value current gen GPU at MSRP?

    I mean more in terms of supported games. I'm sure they will get there but nvidia has a leg up since DLSS has been out longer.

    Best value current gen GPU at MSRP?

    I concur that the RX 6800 XT is a very impressive and underrated card. It sits between the 3080 and 3090 in some benchmarks. The only downside is raytracing performance isn't great and I hear AMD's equivalent to DLSS, FSR, has a way to go.

    What if the crypto craze never ends?

    Unless you’re gaming 24/7 for months at a time, mining consumes more power.

    The 10700k is being cooled by the arctic cooling liquid freezer II 240 and the 5600x is cooled by the msi mag 240r. The 10700k for the most part peaks in the mid 80s in stress tests and the 5600x peaks in the low 70s. Kind of wished I went with a 360 radiator for the 10700k.

    Should be alright for a 10600k. I think I lost the lottery on my 10700k as it runs quite toasty at its necessary voltage for the overclock which is a fairly modest one at best, 4.9 ghz all core. Could get to 5 ghz but didn’t like the stress test temps.

    What cpu is in that cyberpower pc? If it’s an AMD processor with a 65w tdp it may be more than adequate for that. I have a 240 aio on my 5600x and it’s quite overkill. It runs much much cooler than my 10700k.

    EVGA 3070 In Stock @ EVGA.com 689

    Especially lame because I got a notification from the queue specifically saying -KR was removed from production and I would be moved to -KL (light hash rate version). So maybe it did end production but why not release however many made to people in the queue?

    Tbh I think at scalped prices it’s more like 6+ months and the problem is the bubble peaked so quickly that it may take longer than that since the peak was only April-May (say 2 out of the 4-6 months needed to break even). I think at msrp it could be as low as 2-4 months depending on the card...

    I don’t know how buying a scalped card and mining was ever a profitable venture. At best buying a card near msrp and then selling it used at scalper prices to buy a new gpu at scalper prices would be one of the only ways to make that work. I had read a report from an analyst that claimed 1 in 4...

    I think the biggest factor is the move to proof of stake rather than the price. It’s a complex calculus, but mining was profitable when Ethereum was over $700/ether and will likely continue to be somewhat profitable. One of the reasons pricing has tanked is due to the China crackdown. There is a...

    Took 1 month to step up from the 3060 xc to 3090. Not too bad. With demand leveling off maybe that wait is even quicker now.

    Pretty sure that only works for the founders edition. FTW3 uses three 8-pin connectors, not a single 12-pin.

    Are they daisy chained with two connectors each or one?

    I thought the FTW3 had a better thermal pad setup for vram than the founders edition. Will have to see if others say that helps. I saw one person took the back plate off and installed ram sinks.

    As was my concern, the memory Tjunction sensor runs hot hot hot especially when mining on the 3090. It’s been a very hot week here outside so I have had to definitely ramp the fans up. I can at least keep Tj to 100C with a few tweaks. Running with the case side on is an immediate run to 110C...

    Dell pre-built for a not terrible price

    1650 super runs a little slower in some cases than a 980. So I’d imagine a 1650 runs slower than a 970 by a fair margin. The difference between the 1650 and 1650 super is pretty significant due to the memory bandwidth I believe.

    I’ve heard the gddr6x ram is a beast to cool and having 24 gb worth of modules on it really taxes the 3090. One reason why the 3070 ti draws so much extra power and takes a bit more to cool.

    Evga is top notch. Though I see a lot of people complaining about the 3090 FTW3’s power limit being too low and locked by bios despite having a theoretical maximum power draw of 525 watts (apparently pulls little to none from PCIE slot the way evga has it programmed). Is it that limited compared...

    The worst part appears to be airflow of the case and potentially the cpu cooler performance. I don’t know if they are using proprietary Kingston HyperX Ram. Interestingly enough, HP bought the hyperx ram branding from Kingston. Dell/Alienware uses a proprietary version of this ram and it’s...

    I noticed the trend has been down if you check a site like stockx, gpus aren’t going for what they were at the peak of the crypto bubble in May. They are still ridiculously overpriced and damn near impossible to find but maybe it’s a downward trend. Possibly uncertainty in crypto and supply...

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

    Terrible card for mining. Don’t even know if it will break even on the Msi scalped price difference compared to evga/fe msrp. $600 would take at least 3 months to recoup at 57 mh.

    I would think they would at least move you over to a lower or equivalent sku? Like maybe from 3080 to 3070ti. The 3080ti is more akin to a 3090 so I could see them going eol on that sooner.

    Hard to say I was considering switching but I’ve been on the 3090 queue for about a month. The price difference isn’t much and the 3090 isn’t hashrate gimped so... I guess I’ll stay in that queue.

    No doubt Newegg’s severs are more scalable than evga. But it’s the same issue as zotac. Some people have no trouble accessing their site. I don’t have a prayer’s chance.

    In a way they are doing us a favor this is an awful price on a card that’s also gimped for mining so it’s double the difficulty to even recoup the cost.
