    Senators call for US to follow EU's lead in creating a national standard for phone chargers

    I haven't had to replace a single USB-C charging port on my devices. Like I had to with micro-usb. We will see what the future holds :)

    Senators call for US to follow EU's lead in creating a national standard for phone chargers

    I am no fanboy of Apple, but the lightning connector was a step up from MicroUSB, but it is a step down from USB-C. USB-C should have been around a long time ago, I don't know why we needed fixed orientation connectors on USB for so long. Now lightning is the one behind, the exposed connectors...

    Did I Degrade or Destroy my 5950x? Now with a response from Asus on page 2!

    That score is not bad at all dude. My max on PBO with a lot of LLC wasn't much higher, and my chip hit high 80s in temp. (maybe 4-500 higher) so it looks like your chip is working just fine with PBO enabled.

    Did I Degrade or Destroy my 5950x? Now with a response from Asus on page 2!

    Pretty sure that is with PBO. I'm 99.9 % sure it will use the CPUs stock TDP setting of 105w(unless you manually change it) which is very limiting for 16 cores. PBO extends those limits to a much higher # which allows the CPU to stretch its legs more.

    Without PBO working, he is correct. PBO will get you 4.x, non PBO is 3.7

    Bought a 2080ti on Facebook marketplace and it started artifacting within a couple hours. see pics

    Not at first... they tried to weasel out of it(probably didn't have any replacement 2000 series cards) and only caved once he pushed back.

    6950xt releasing next week

    Different 3070 models have different power limits, that is not a gen1 or gen2 thing. if you are talking about refresh, look at the 3070ti instead.

    It looks like your PPT, EDC and TDP are hitting max. Raise the levels?

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Still not a low temp, regardless of what load it had on it. 97 hotspot is high. On top of that 74 -> 97 is a 23 degree difference, which is big for a hotspot difference from core temp. That would point to medicore contact for the heatsink itself.

    I hate to break it to you, 74 on core and 97 on hotspot is not LOW.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    And as you said before, you used a custom fan curve, where the fan was running at 6x% when the core was super hot :)

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Well, technically your card is not overheating, you just don't like the noise it makes and were probably limiting it's fanspeed before. Now no thermal pad contact on the VRM will not cause your card to overheat, but it could cause premature failure of the VRMs

    Not sure what hair dryer you're using, but even modern quiet hair dryers are 60+ decibels. It's fine to not like the tone / pitch whatever sound profile. But it's another to say this card is loud, when it is not.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I mean it's quiet relative to OTHER 3080s and other video cards. Is it possible that your expectations are just not realistic? I've had 3 Asus TUF 3080s go through my hands, and none of them were close to as loud as a hair dryer at 70% fan.

    You must be sensitive to the fan noise, the TUF cards are fairly quiet even at higher fan speeds :) What is the ambient temp in the room?

    R9 5950x and RTX 3080 - Is my loop too small? Too little radiator? Too little pump?

    I had a 5950x with a 3080FE and then a 3080ti FTW3 on 2 x Corsair 360mm XR7, with my water temp around 31-35, my 5950x (pulling up to 250W) would hit around 85c.

    110c is where it begins to throttle, 120c is permanent damage.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Asus has a 0 fan setting, this probably disables it. I have GPUs running at 200+w with 0% fan sometimes because they're running at 20-30c. :) Power has no bearing on it, it is based on temp.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I would do a driver clean as well, reset any settings on gpu tweak or after burner,. Fan speed is based on temperature, not on load. So even if you are on 100% load, but temps are low, the fans will not spin up fast.

    I still think there is an issue with your fan settings :(

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    The fact that the fans were running at 64% when the core was at 84C is what it would change :) that sounds wrong all together. I wonder if somewhere in your config the fan curve is messed up.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    For shits and giggles, can you run your test again with 100% fan speed?(With furmark like in that first pic) Tornado of air doesn't matter if there is no direct airflow over the fins and components

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Why is your fan only at 64% when the GPU is that hot? is the fan on auto or did you manually set it? Those temps (hot spot and junction) look about right with a core temp that high.

    3090 FTW3 had a 500w+ bios 3090Ti FTW3 already hits close to 500W (450w stock) + 6% boost available. These rumors are always funny. NV and AMD will not lose an opportunity by naming a card which out performs their previous generation by 30% a mainstream card... They will just give it an...

    2x 3080 LHR 10gb on 1000 watts 70% power

    HMM With that CPU you may be cutting it close at 100% power, 70% would leave a lot of buffer. The XC3 Ultra has a 340W stock power limit The XC3 Black is 320W If you use 100% you are looking at 640-680w of power on GPU alone, leaving you with about 300W for the cpu . Which is roughly what it...

    2x 3080 LHR 10gb on 1000 watts 70% power

    Which 3080 cards are you using? Which CPU as well? The FE has a 320W power limit @ 100%, so depending on the rest of your rig, 100% should be fine on both of the 3080s.

    You can always buy 1 level down... 3080 or 3080ti will be within 10% of the 3090ti and much smaller. I assume the same will be for the next gen cards
