    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Geforce Fermi EVGA 580 HydroCopper for sure! It was the last generation to have the 'full fat at the high end' GPU released first. The 680 was an insult, doubly so because under water, volt modded and overclocked, a 580 would beat a stock 680 quite easily. Nvidia then capped the overclock on...

    Outdated game mechanics.

    Control pads! :eek: I've been using a superior mouse + kb combo for over 2 decades, WTF would I want to downgrade to inferior input? They give consoles a bad name and need to go the way of the Dodo. :ROFLMAO:

    Forgive me Father, for I have sinned...

    I gave you a like for being open, but it's starting to become a serious option. I'm still waiting for regular stock at MSRP, and will not budge out of principle. The only game I can't play is Cyperpunk, so I am content to wait.

    EVGA 3080 black screen issue. Anyone else.

    I had this recently with my Titan Xp, exact same thing. Bought a new HDMI cable, no change, thought the card was on it's way out, but upgrading to the very latest version of Windows 10 solved it. I have Education edition and for some reason the latest build wouldn't get pushed down...

    RTX 3060 12GB

    Yes, they skipped it because making their own cards makes less money than selling the chips to AIBs. I got the feeling with the 3080 FE that it was a pretend gift, something that would never actually be readily available. Now they're not even bothering to 'pretend sell' a 3060 FE, says it all to...

    RTX 3060 12GB

    I love the fact that Nvidia can't even be bothered to sell this latest farce themselves: It's like they're just quietly walking away from the very concept of selling 3D graphics cards to consumers. It's about to be March 2021, still...

    i7-5820k Overheating After Lapping

    If you can feel a clear differential between the inlet and outlet temperatures of the radiator then you clearly have a flowrate problem. My custom loop got gunked up not too long ago causing the flowrate to massively drop. The symptoms were oddly high CPU temps, and a major difference between...

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Stability and overclocking - what do you consider stable

    Totally, practically this! I'm certain there's a stress test that would crash my PC, but why would I run it? If there's an app you use that kills your OC, you are unstable, otherwise good to go. Handbrake will crash my 5.4 overclock with enough time, so I set it in the bios if all 8 cores are...

    RMA submitted, RMA received. Is this right or should I be upset?

    2020 / 2021 - best CPU's for overclocking on either side?

    I'd previously been spending big bucks on a high end mobo, specifically for better overclocking, but these days, it's just wasted money. So latest rig I just went for a relatively cheap half decent MSI mobo (previously I'd be dead set on Asus Hero, nothing less than) and I've been thoroughly...

    Rtx 3000 series undervolt discussion

    You're just temp limited. Ok, so this is just for the non-watercooling peeps, fair enough. If you can't stand to turn your fans up, then watercool. Don't shy away from the heat! Control it! And then add more fuel and more cooling and don't stop till it explodes. :smuggrin:

    Anything preventing Nvidia from implementing SAM with its cards? Need a 2nd opinion on those numbers! I'd be impressed if it actually increases raw framerate in a static scene, but I have I feeling it's just helping out when assets are loaded etc.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    I'm looking at either a 3090 Founders (preferred) or Asus Strix 3090 OC. I'm leaning toward the Founders both due to significant price difference, that the Founder's cooler is gorgeous (though I will definitely watercool it), and I don't think under water the Asus would actually be any better...

    Wasn't Ampere delayed though? So why rush if you've already set a delay and are still ahead of the competition?

    Nvidia Turing: Time to Pay Respect.

    I'll also remember "Turing", as in Alan Turing, as in clearly the series meant to be a Crypto mining beast, but then that didn't magically pan out, so suddenly they made it all about Ray Tracing. Alan's other work he was famous for. :confused:

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    If nvidia never wanted to sell 3080s for £699, then why didn't they just release it for £899 with plenty of stock? It's not like it wouldn't have sold. I believe they genuinely fucked up, but erred such as it wouldn't immediately harm them. :cool:

    What happened to HBM Memory?

    My belief, so back when 'Poor Volta' AMD PR was hitting strong, Nvidia just dumped a big wad of cash to Micron to make GDDR faster. + also secured HMB2, then played it low.
