    "nVidia finally responds to 4090 cables melting..."

    Nvidia hasn't declined any warranties that I've seen. So the user is out the use of his card for a few days while they RMA it. Times Nvidia deserves our hate, this doesn't seem like one of those times.

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    I feel like a recall isn't going to happen. I believe the "Hey, check and make sure your connectors are fully seated!" has pretty much caused the problem to go away. Nothing new on Reddit since Gamers Nexus video. Newer connectors will probably eventually have their signal cables shortened to...

    Nvidia RTX 4090 power connectors melting?

    So can we now bend the cables all we want as long as we got a click?

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    Without crypto miners to inflate the prices, yeah this should be a $800 card. It's performance is great but for the price diffrence, get a 4090 instead.

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    I would still expect them to have SOME statement eventually. "Hey guys, be extra careful when connecting everything. Many of the problem we're seeing are caused by a few avoidable mistakes". But I get what you're saying, saying nothing is probably safer position for them.

    So I guess now that GN did the research Nvidia will FINALLY make a statement? GN should send Nvidia a bill.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Saw a RTX4090 power support clip on Printables and decided to make it for fun. Came out well. Don't think it would close in a standard depth case. Anyway, I figured I would share in case any others wanted to check it out. https://www.printables.com/model/304955-nvidia-4090-power-cable-support-clip

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    While everyone was queued up for cards, I managed to get a order in for a MSI MPG A1000G PCIE5 PSU. Will be at my local store on Monday for pickup. Shipping wasn't an option.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    So has anyone actually checked if they have a 300v or a 150v? I'm FE gang so till I see a FE affected I'm hands off. I did think it was interesting that Igor had a 150v and all of Gamers Nexus adapters were 300v. On the flip side; on reddit some people are stating they have melted adapters and...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    This guy had a 3x connector and it just happened to him... https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/yfqevh/msi_gaming_x_trio_rtx_4090_adapter_burned/ Why would some 4090s come with 3x cables and most with 4x?

    https://www.igorslab.de/en/adapter-of-the-gray-analyzed-nvidias-brand-hot-12vhpwr-adapter-with-built-in-breakpoint/ Lots of info. Seems to put the fault on the 4x 8pin adapter included with the card.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    I did consider that as well but then the cable would have to flex towards the right and on cablemods website that maybe worse than bending it down.Link As you pointed out it would require a fair bit of dremeling to get a 3 slot card to fit and then I would still have to leave the side panel off...

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    My Setup looks pretty bad. I'm afraid to bend the power connector after the last couple of fires. So sits without side panel for now. Waiting for the 90 degree powermod cable adapter to try and attempt to close it. I skimmed thru some of the cases, tempted to pick up a dual chamber case. Just...

    AORUS FO48U 48" 4K OLED 3840x2160 120Hz, PC MONITOR $799.99

    I was worried a little about this also, as such its not my primary display. I have it to the side and only switch it on for movies or controller games, I use an Ultra-wide screen for work or general use. Super happy with it so far except for the occasional second of dimming during Forza. Haven't...

    Wouldn't Burn in happen only if the image is static for a long time? Watching a movie or playing a game I wouldn't think would be a big issue. Did find this on reddit. Hopefully future firmware upgrades make it more accessible...

    I picked it up at amazon also, waiting for deliver on Monday. Will use mostly as a gaming station w/ consoles in PC room, but will wire it up as a 3rd monitor as well as pop a spare Roku 4k stick on it. Excited for it.

    Auctioneer puts Space Shuttle CPUs under the hammer

    I think I'd be more likely to bid on the space shuttle printer. You would probably be able to still use it and you can print sheets out for family and friends and tell them "Hey, this sheet got printed on the space shuttles printer!" Much cheaper also...

    Steam Deck 3D prints

    Back home now. Here is the hub at the back of the dock. I guess it doesn't fit under very well as the cord is too short, but seems to fit nicely behind. Will secure with some velcro or two sided tape. If I had hoped to use the Ethernet port I'd have to edit another hole on the right side but I...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    I was worried about that. I took the extra step of adding credit to my steam wallet the day before so credit cards stuff wouldn't slow me down or worse time out like it did for so many people. It payed off and I was in the first batch. Sorry you got screwed. Hopefully you get an invite soon.

    Steam Deck 3D prints

    The one I ordered will fit under the dock, with all the relevant ports on one side. (Monitor, mouse/keyboard & power.) And unlike the Anker, it should all work while still powering the Steam Deck. Not really in a hurry to hook it up to a monitor and such. For now it's just a stand with a 90...

    Steam Deck 3D prints

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    They're referring to streaming the games via cloud gaming. Not a terrible thing but I was hoping to play games natively on the deck hardware. I use the Deck mostly on the train, I won't be able to stream while riding. I'll check the other link, thanks!

    4th wave of invites went out this morning. Hopefully more of us are getting them. Have had mine now for about a week, love it! I think it shines most with casual games. Elden Ring or more immersive games I would much rather play on the desktop. Also I'm kinda bummed there is no good answer for...
