    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    My queue just popped for 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra. I've not been following but should I grab this? Are people still having EVGA 30 series cards die?

    Free* - Meshify C case, black

    A couple of people are interested and whoever gets it wrapped first is good to go. I need to get it finalized so I can include it in a UPS pickup tomorrow. I'll be on my ass after my second Moderna shot tomorrow and I'm driving half the day to get that done.

    Free* - Meshify C case, black

    Shipping shouldn't be bad at that distance. I did a check for someone in TN and it was like $22.

    Free* - Meshify C case, black

    Fractal Meshify C, black with no glass window. This is the case for real men that don't care about RGB. (To clarify, this isn't missing any pieces. This is just the model that did not have a glass side.) It's in perfect shape except some dust and fuzzing on the Velcro cable ties. It needs a...

    GHOST S1 - When both size & performance matters

    I have a bunch of spare Ghost S1 parts, mostly Ash. Is there enough demand for this that I should make a FS post? Is there any market guidance on Tophat prices?

    For Free: Sans Digital 5 drive bay, Intel i7-920 (GONE)

    I think these items are likely gone but I'll probably post some more. You know you have a "stuff problem" when you find a corded phone.

    For Free: Sans Digital 5 drive bay, Intel i7-920 (GONE)

    If anyone wants to calculate shipping it's roughly 12 pounds and I'm guessing a 14x14x14 or so box that I'll need to come up with. Ships from 63011. That's for all of it but the CPU isn't adding much. Thanks for the move, forgot about the free stuff forum.

    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    Appreciate it. Maybe that silently helped. I was worried because the box was hanging together by a thread but separated completely while I was trying to pack it. Figured they'd receive it and claim it was opened and deny the thing. I was actually going to send it and was threading together...

    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    AMD came through with a refund just fine once they got their shit straight and approved the RMA. I got the money 4/1 so they were quick once they received it. Thanks for the offer though. Regarding Nvidia/AMD and Digital River, my memory was actually jogged to revisit this because I saw a...

    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    They have a 30 day return policy so what does it matter? How can you invalidate a 30 day return policy due to damage during transit? They don't deny that the damage occurred before I received it. It's a catch 22 but I agree that it's likely ok. But given the need for a quick turnaround it...

    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    I don’t know if the pins are damaged or not. The box is mangled and if I open it I’m on my own. They made that clear straight off the bat. Then they decided it can’t be returned because it is damaged. Now they have pivoted and want me to test it. I’m unclear about putting boxes on shelves...

    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    They will pack your Ryzen CPU in an oversized box with some wadded paper, then refuse to assist if/when it arrives damaged. Their customer service pushes returns through the warranty department too, which is weird.

    Ryzen 5950X sorta stock performance inquiry

    After years of Intel I've rebuilt around Ryzen 5950X. I'm brand spanking new in the ecosystem and my OOB, basically stock settings had this pushing 1.475+ VID even when idle. I've tinkered a bit to tame this but I'd like to educate a bit. Is there a guide I should read? My objective here is...

    I sold a 3080 at cost and a 2080 Ti for $800. Honestly I was expecting some good karma but instead I got $6000+ in medical bills (was expecting ~$2000). America

    Yes and no. I do media encoding at times, it's infrequent but I go on runs where I do a lot of it, then nothing for 6 months. More regularly, daily actually, I'll run a VM or two while doing normal work / gaming things. There is no doubt I can get by without it though, nice to have rather...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I'm in the same boat. I have a sealed 5800X and it'll be fine but I'd like to find a 5900X. I see them at various MC but not "mine". I'd be glad to compensate someone that would grab one for me. I just sold 2 GPUs at friendly prices so I'm due some hardware karma.

    Looking for display deals / recommendations

    I need 2 displays and wondering about deals this weekend. 1) A second monitor for my kid to use with a discord and similar. Bonus points if it can be rotated. Smaller is better, his main is 27” Asus G-Sync. 2). Primary monitor for my wife to use for productivity (finance). Can probably use...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    I'm calling it good. I've been grinding away for a 2+ days now, was the stupid adapter. Good call people. Hopefully whatever flaky connection was present didn't cause any harm.

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    Time will tell. I've been optimistic before! So far so good, about 18 hours or so without a crash. Knock on wood but it might have been the stupid adapter.

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    Ok I finally got time to mine my old PCIE cables out and swap in the Seasonic 12 pin cable. I don't love it because it doesn't look good with my other cables but if it's functionally sound then I can worry about asthetics later. Now I just need to let it grind until I feel that it's stable...

    Everything is gone again?

    Guys I got a 3080 but by then I was addicted to the chase and I keep looking. WTF is wrong with me. Ok confession, I got 2 and am still looking. One went to a local friend that just started a new job and can't look. It was funny b/c when we met to give him the card, there were like 5 cop...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    The power target max for the 3080 FE is 370W. Installed 457.09, raised the power limit and rebooted in like 5 seconds. Will swap the power cable after all my conf calls today.

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    First image is with raised power headroom, other is stock. Both are heavy load, fan is fairly aggressive. I haven't had time and I was planning to redo this because I forgot to restart the monitoring app so my columns other than "current' are not useful. I was feeling good on the hotfix...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    Seasonic support's recommendation was to somehow use 3 PCIE power cables with my FE.

    Using my 3080 as a small space heater

    I developed an illness that flipped my body temp. I was previously comfortable mid 60’s with shorts and a T. Now I’m wearing sweats and a thermal shirt with my thermostat set for extra toasty. I’ve been folding on the 3080 and it’s great. Give me all the Nvidia and Intel things.

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    The only things I had time for tonight, update the driver to 456.98. And I've been tinkering with some benchmarks which were fine. I'll get it back to the original problematic state (aside from driver) and let it go for a bit. I started folding when they added the COVID-19 models. It makes...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    Yeah I saw and posted there. I was corrected that the list is for shutdowns that require a PSU switch toggle to boot after. But I do see people posting about reboots in the thread so who knows. It seems closely related imo. I also noticed the PSU is listed as good but .. I'll keep an open...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    The PSU is just a couple years old but I'll search for that list. Yeah I am currently using some CableMod cables that I've used since I got the PSU, connected to the NV adapter. I received the 12 pin Nvidia power cables requested from Seasonic but have not yet installed. Dumb that I didn't...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    Thanks, will swap out for the Seasonic cables that just arrived. I just added the adapter to the existing cables but good idea.. even if it's solid I could have an iffy adapter. Shit is so baffling when it's this sporadic. Trying to avoid hitting a local MC because I'm immune compromised so...

    Troubleshooting request - 3080 FE reboots

    This is one of my concerns. Obviously this PSU should be just fine with this load but here I am. I was hoping to get NV to cross-ship for me but that's not happening. I'm not worried about RAM because I can independently test that and it's fine. Plus I've had the RAM/MB/CPU combo going...

    Best Buy 12TB WD Easy Store External HDD 179.99

    I have torn ligaments and some other things going on with my hands so some joints float around a bit and are causing arthritis. I have my wife opening jars for me unfortunately. But yeah I’ve got cards, specialized tools, guitar picks, you name it.
