I could cover my 3080 with 2 packs of EKWB pads, cost me 6 bucks a pack.
I want to say, 1.5 mm thick.
So 6 bucks is roughly 24 zl, right?
The putty is widely used, I guess because its thick. Not really reuseable.
Thermal putty is 12 dollars for 20g more than enough ...... so all for 80 zl.
You fussed with doing all this junk with fans, complain over and over about the thermal pad gap and then dont fix it.
I also dont get the constant complaining about ASUS. They tested your gpu, what else should they do?
The gpu works fine. Even your local shop says so.
By the way, did...
I still think you have displaced your anger.
Again, ASUS tested your card and it's fine.
You posted results after they looked at it and all the temperatures are fine, in fact lower.
The thermal pads look fine.
I hear nothing on the video you made. Even with a cell phone, if my wife had her...
That is very true and a very popular misconception.
nvidia sells chips and I suppose engineering support for PCB construction.
If the price goes up after the scalpers get ahold of the product, nvidia sees no benefit.
Sure if the product is crazy in demand, nvidia sells all their chips and...
Given the 2 year plague of low stock, I would say now is the time to grab the
best you can.....that said, who knows what prices will do in a month when all the usual resellers have boatloads of stock.
Given the scalping on the release of the 3080s, and the difficulty to buy one, Id bet we'll see...
Hahaha......Im in the same boat.
I queued up in Oct 2020, nothin.
EVGA shifted me to a LHR version queue.
EVGA seems to have put all their energy into the FTW3 cards.
That said, Im seeing more and more stock for sale over the last 10 days, but I hold out no hope for the queue.
I finally bought a...
I dont think in this case ASUS has any fault.
First, you say yourself, that gaming is fine, no issues.
Second, the shop and ASUS tested your card and found no issue.
Third, your fan curve is not appropiate.
I think your anger is misdirected.
If the heatsink bothers you, buy some damn pads and...
You can get power supply reviews from Paul Johnson on theFPSreview.
They don't do as many, but same guy and pretty much the same format.
I still come here a couple times a week to look at for sale stuff.
I sell things actually quite successfully here from time to time still.
I'd love to see...
Stoner Invisible glass.
(Stoner is the manufacturer)
It is simply the best glass cleaner around.
Works wonders on inside of car windshields, plastics, you name it.
Apply, wipe with microfiber, buff a little.....streak free.
I queued up for a 3080 xc3 in early October and Im still waiting.
Plus theres no way of knowing where you might be in the line.
Its a nice try, but not at all transparent.
Plus the cheaper, basic cards are almost extinct.
Ammunition is fairly easy to understand......there are around 6 million new gun owners since March 2020, the makers of ammunition simply can't make enough to supply the new guys and the usual customers.
I guess silicone is the same....GPUs are nonexistant except at wildly inflated prices, which...
So here we are.......6 months in and you can't find a new GPU anywhere for even a modest jack over MSRP (Im talking etail, not eBay)
What the hell happened?
lack of parts?
what is the truth Mulder?
I went in the queue 16 October for a 3080 UC3 Black (3881)
I dont think it has gone anywhere past 16 September yet.
The next generation of GPU will be released before I get this one......if ever.
Due to the current market conditions, this card, the 5700 XT is what I use to game currently.
It has honestly held it's own at 1440p to my surprise.
It did replace a R290X which was a stout card as well.
Is it a GOAT like the GTX 8800 or 1080 Ti........no it is not.
I'd love a 6800XT but.......LoL
Id say the scalpers once again ran the table, at least for 6800 XT.
Why cant these smart tech people figure out a way to fuck the bots?
Should be simple.
1 purchase every 30 minutes per person.
Thanks FrgMstr for the encouraging news.
This situation is getting discouraging.
First ammo, now...
You need to go over to FPS Review and read the Watch Dogs new review.
The game needed over 8 GB of memory to run all the features.
Sure it's one game, but it has all the bells and whistles.
I think the 3080 with 10 GB isn't going to be enough soon.
Thats where the new AMD stuff is going to be...
