    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.

    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...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    OK. Since I followed everyone's directions here and reloaded windows, and uninstalled then reinstalled the drivers after making sure I had all of the Windows updates done, I haven't run into any more BSOD's. I believe the shutting down issue was solved by disabling ( uninstalling ) the Fan Xpert...

    Wraith Prism questions?

    OK, sorry for the late reply everyone. I think I solved this one: The Asus Fan Xpert 4 that is included with the AI suite had forced the CPU and chassis fans to run in 'silent' mode. The Prism does not fluctuate any longer since I disabled ( uninstalled ) it. Previous to the other day when I...

    Wraith Prism questions?

    No, I have had it mounted for a while. Everything has been fine until my RX 5700 XT Challenger card got here. Previous to that, everything was fine with my GTX 1070(same build since Zen 2 launch). Updated to the newest BIOS this afternoon after 2 clean installs. All of which is documented in the...

    I think it's an EVGA 600B. I can't make sure right now because I am on my way out the door for work. I will post back later tonight.

    Wraith Prism questions?

    I am running the Wraith Prism cooler on my Ryzen 7 3700X at stock clocks. The fan is constantly fluctuating, between 523 and 1165 RPM's. On the desktop it isn't noticeable. I have been watching it in HW monitor since about 15 mins ago when, during a gaming session of PUBG, the fans were...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    Huh. Was playing PUBG just now, and everything was going smooth af. Great framerates, ~140 avg on Ultra settings. Fans kept changing RPM's and then all of a sudden -- shut down. No artifacts or stuttering. No warnings. Just boof. Is 600w not enough for one of these? Edit: No overclocks. Not on...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    BIOS updated. I ran the render test in GPU-z and it runs @ x16 3.0. I also fired up SotTR and returned a 117 FPS avg, so I am going to guess that when PUBG installs I will get more than 60FPS. I hope this is it. I hope this is the end of it.

    I updated to the latest drivers for everything for the Asus Prime X370-pro last night. I installed all of the Windows updates that were available last night. I ran DDU to uninstall the GTX 1070 this morning. I installed the RX 5700 XT this morning. I powered my PC back on and installed the...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    I will try this tomorrow morning. I will make sure Windows is completely up to date, use DDU to unintall my 1070, reinstall the 5700 XT and then, when all that is done I will run GPU-Z to see if it is somehow magically running in PCI-e 4.0. However I am not Gamers Nexus, so I won't be taking my...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    I do not believe myself to be running a BIOS that has PCI-e 4.0 enabled, as I am on an X370 board. I will look into that shortly. I am currently on the drivers that came with the motherboard, I will be updating those shortly. PM coming your way. Edit: Do I check the PCI-e 4.0 thing while that...

    Struggling to decide - 2070S vs 5700XT?

    Was totally excited for RX 5700 XT, until I got my ASRock Challenger. Another [H]'er and I have been having issues. His was DOA, mine is either defective or won't install correctly, or both. Played PUBG last night at 1080p and only returned.....60FPS on mixed setting. Made sure that I didn't...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    Woke up this morning after another Windows reinstall, and used DDU to uninstall the 19.8.2 drivers, thinking maybe if I try the 19.8.1 drivers things might clear up. Well, they didn't. I was really hoping it was just a driver issue. But after the restart for the older drivers it hung, which...

    Spoke too soon. After I posted I got a series of restarts and 4 BSOD's. Videos wouldn't play (YouTube or Netflix), and pages wouldn't load right. Discord goes black for a second any time I click on a different server. I used DDU to uninstall my nVidia drivers, and then installed the 5700XT and...

    AsRock 5700 XT Challenger or Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse

    I wanted a Gigabyte card, too, but wasn't willing to wait for them. So it became a choice between the Sapphire Pulse and ASRock Challenger. Challenger won out because it came in stock first. It gets here Monday. I wasn't worried that it has no reviews, or that no one has gotten a review sample...

    7950 Replacement options

    I would go with a 970, or even an R9 280/280x(yeah, I know the 280 is the 7950, but they are decent cards). I have seen some OEM HP 1060 3gb cards for ~175. Don't rule those out. Single fan, and don't look as cool, but people seem to be pulling them out of their HP's for quick cash(probably the...

    A question about broken GPU's

    This is what brought me here. I am looking for a stock heatsink/fan combo for an EVGA 970 that I have that was watercooled using a corsair AIO. But the prices are ridiculous for broken cards. So much so, that unless I luck out soon, I may as well just search for aftermarket cooling. Arctic's...

    A question about broken GPU's

    Why do people list them for so much on eBay? I have looked for the answer all over the place(google, search function), but I can't find one. And I am not talking about people scamming, but people who are listing them as broken, for a high price. Any info is appreciated.
