    What are you guys using for a router that you love?

    I’m using a Firewalla Gold as of the past few weeks. Works great and easy to configure. Was nervous at first but I’m satisfied with it. Was going to build my own pfsense box but glad I went with this. Using my old Asus AX86 routers as access points.

    Official EVGA Ampere Queue Thread

    I got a 3070 Ti the first week it launched and put it in step up immediately to the 3080. My 3080 step up came about a week or so ago. So it is moving. I also got a buy link for a 3060 Ti and a 3080 Ti all in the past few months. I recently sold a member here a 3080 FTW3 Ultra FHR and will...

    Samsung 980 Pro 2TB $279 at Newegg

    I was leaning toward that inland drive but the Samsung was just $5 more after promo code so I bit as well. Going in the PS5 with a cheap Amazon heatsink if they ever ship it out.

    Should I step up or not? 3070 FHR to 3080 LHR

    I was in the same boat sort of. I was in step up queue for the 3080 FTW3 Ultra from an XC3 Ultra FHR. I know it’s just a model difference but it’s the card my kid wanted. eVGA wants $240 or so for the step up. So I ordered the 3080 Ti FTW3 they sent me a notify for and plan on selling the...

    I’ve managed to snag a 3080 XC3 Ultra, 3080 FTW3, 3070 Ti FTW3, 3080 Ti FTW3 and a Zotac 3060 Ti. 2 of them went to friends and family members the other 3 are in my PC, wife’s PC and kids PC. They sent me a step up notify for the XC3 Ultra to FTW3 Ultra. I’d be willing to trade for LHR. The...

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    I have no interest in buying any CPUs at the moment. I’m rocking a 3600X/3080, 8086K/3080 and a third system with a 8700K/3070Ti. I don’t do anything much other than some light/medium gaming on a 144hz 1440p monitor and basic internet usage for paying bills or what have you these days. In...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    I joined the first 2 queues before I even knew they were queues and so got in super early. The 3070 Ti I was waiting on their website at launch and got in within the first 5 min and received a buy link later that day.

    I’ve been thinking about putting the hybrid kit on my 3080 XC3 and 3080 FTW3 but I can’t determine if it’ll actually fit at the top of my Antec P280 cases with the Noctua NH-D15 there. I haven’t been able to confirm that it’ll fit so haven’t pulled the trigger. It’s such an old case I’ll...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    My time for the 3080 Ti FTW3 is 08:02:17. I’ll probably pass on it though whenever it pops up now that I’ve obtained a 3070 Ti which is all I need for my third PC. Looking at those reviews finding it hard to justify the $500 bump.

    I tried and tried looking for reviews of the 3070 Eagle but couldn’t find any for some reason. I put in for it anyway. Guess a 3070 is better than no 3070 lol.

    Yup that’s exactly why that was the only AMD card I selected because it was the only one I was remotely interested in. Sucks when you “win” then decide nah but it is what it is. I don’t know why people select things they aren’t even interested in.

    I was planning on doing that but as I clicked place my order it turned 5pm EST so it didn’t let me complete it. Seems stupid since I was in checkout but whatever. The AMD cards are way overpriced for what they are hence why I waited so long to go through with it. I have a feeling a lot of...

    I ordered 5 new surge protectors that cut power when surge suppression circuits fail. Ordered a new router and 3 intel Ethernet cards. One will be kept as a backup. Also ordered 2 AC1300 TP link adapters to use as backups 😂. Those intel standalone adapters are probably better than the...

    Bad storms 2 nights ago zapped all ports on my router and onboard LAN on 2 of my motherboards. So much for Asus Languard and surge protectors. I might be looking for some prebuilts in the future if these intel standalone Ethernet cards suck that I ordered. Unless I wanna replace 2 Z390-A boards.

    I’ve entered 5 shuffles and haven’t won but my cousin had entered 4 and won twice...... He maybe has spent $1000 at Newegg in the past decade where as I’ve easily spent $8-10k.

    EVGA Step Up to 3XXX card

    My 3080 FTW3 came in. I was pleasantly surprised with my custom fan curve to find that it’s completely inaudible even when I was playing Cold War maxed at 1440p and maintaining 130fps. It topped out at 66C. The stock fan curve is awful. The fans make a clicking or ticking sound around the...

    I just happened to be in the office at work when HotStock blew my phone up so I said what the hell I’ll see if I can get any more. I’ll likely keep one for a bedroom and try to trade or sell the other.
