    Ryzen 3900x fails prime 95 with stock settings

    Appreciate this thread a ton. 1.4V on XMP was the difference in stability and not. Apologies for the necro.

    It gets worse... My buddy won the shuffle for an EVGA 3070FTW, but the package was "lost" by UPS. I guess it's "select your bonus" season at UPS.

    I think pre-built is "most likely to succeed" option.

    Adaptec Raid 5 degraded but won't rebuild with dedicated hot swap drive. Help!

    I've seen older raid cards that couldn't initiate a rebuild without a reboot. Any chance you can power cycle? Regardless, I'd be moving anything you need off that volume. Can't imagine the width of the PCIe bus matters. That reads like tech support's list of stuff to note - e.g., "make sure...

    Figure out what you can do with the extraneous crap it comes with? I won free shipping on flowers for mom, even though I don't remember selecting that in the shuffle.

    Fair point - the 3070 xc3 ultras have cleared out to Nov 2020, which is pretty great. Sadly, I selected 3090s and 3080s.

    They could make it May 2022 and I don't think I would see anything from my queue. Wish I'd selected FTWs instead of XC3 models. The XC3s aren't moving at all.

    Don't recall that one when I got my BSEE in 1996. There was something about three point one four one five nine in a song... I'm a lawyer these days anyway.

    Every time I hear the "I want a job where I can always be remote" I think about how big a sucker that person is. If your job can be done entirely remotely, what's to stop it being done in say... India?

    Boot times (used to?) suffer greatly with ECC RAM. When I was a BIOS guy back in the day, I constantly monkeyed with our zero-writing algorithm to clear ECC memory so the bit flips could be detected. I can imagine your run of the mill customer being upset about how long boot takes on such a...

    Some of the ebay auctions for 3090s are getting close to no profit (adding in ebay and paypal fees). I suspect they'll be some people losing money soon.

    The FTWs seem more available than the xc3 models. Wish I could fit 2.75 slots in my streacom DA2 (without resorting to a hacksaw).

    I'm not sure the analogy works well. Getting these cards requires so much work, I'd debate whether it's worth it. It's like you're telling me you did her homework and wrote her semester end paper for a handjob... Uh... Good job?

    Maybe I missed it before, but I signed up for Evga’s notification which claims to give you a spot and an 8 hour window to buy... Perhaps I’ll be able to get a 3090 xc3 at some point. I can’t fit much else in my DA2.

    BSEE 1996. I work as an IP lawyer these days though. I'm happy enough with my 2080Ti, and I'm not sure I'd see a lot of benefit at the resolution I run anyway (3840X1600 @ 75Hz).

    Only $2100 for a 3080. Almost makes me wish I'd bought one when the markup was only 100% (not really). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08JCRHZGW?tag=amz-mkt-chr-us-20&ascsubtag=1ba00-01000-org00-win10-other-nomod-us000-pcomp-feature-pcomp-wm-8&ref=aa_pcomp

    Can also tell because the 3090 design has a silver “X”, whereas 3080 is elongated (more of an >-<).
