    RTX-4090 Incoming - Need case suggestions

    The new Phanteks G500A is another very solid choice.

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

    I think it is well worth to wait for the MSI Suprim X to become available. I had a Zotac in order but managed to get it cancelled as they were preparing shipping as the Suprim X came in stock. More expensive but totally felt worth it.

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

    That is a damn fine card, impressed with the quality feel of it myself. Haven’t had time to mess with overclocking etc yet, but it is very low noise.

    AMD topping the UL popularity listing for CPU's benching in 3DMark for Dec 2022

    Off topic, but why is it that AMD CPUs suck like donkey shit on all 3dmark’s benchmarks compared to Intel CPUs?

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

    Yeah, I gave up waiting. Got the Corsair special 16-pin cable for the RTX 4090, an HX1000i Corsair PSU and called it a day.

    "Almost Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"

    Wait, were these the cards that was going up against the ATI 9700 Pro (R300)? The wall of shame for nVidia? Or am I thinking about another NV card?

    "Almost Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"

    Wait, what? So these are collectors items now? And we complain about the price of RTX 4090s? :whistle:

    4000 Series Shortage?

    Yeah, at least here in Denmark (Europe) there all of a sudden was quite a few RTX 4090 in stock in the week leading up to the RDNA 3 launch - makes you go hmmmm… :rolleyes: Could be a coincidence, but I think not. That stock of RTX 4090s seem to have gone away pretty much by now….

    Who else is waiting on Zen 4 x3D before upgrading?

    Damn! :( I’m about to build a system based on an Asus Rog Strix B650E-E – wish me luck! :eek:

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

    I’m in Europe where the RTX 4090 are actually in stock here and there. You can’t always be picky with brands though. Current that covers Denmark, Sweden and Norway have them in stock.

    AMD 7900 GPU series reviews are up.

    Yeah, what is crazy about this generation from Nvidia and AMD is that it is their second tier cards 4080 and 7900 XT that presents terrible value. Not the top cards. Normally you would pay 40% more for 10% more performance or something like that on the top cards. But not this time: they want us...

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

    Change of plans! Saw a MSI RTX 4090 Suprim X in stock and couldn’t help myself so I ordered that and canceled the Zotac. These are so bloody expensive anyway so might as well get a card that I’m fully excited about getting! :rolleyes:

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

    So I finally broke down, sold my MSI RTX 3090 Suprim, and found a decent deal for Zotac GeForce RTX 4090 Trinity OC which I have now ordered. I need to assemble a new PC from scratch so it will take some time before that is done but will probably throw it into an older build to kick the tires.

    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    Now we’re talking! Love this…

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Interesting…. But would you say that it is a bad idea to grab a top brand like the Seasonic Vertex line as soon as they are available? Because that is what I’m planning to do.

    Will air cooling be enough for 7950X?

    Yeah, this one is actually very interesting: Long story short, a top air cooler will not cost you much performance.

    Downclocking 6400 XMP to 6000 EXPO Equivalent (with tighter timings) on AM5 Worth the Effort?

    In for a follow, as I’m looking squarely at precisely option 2 with a CAS Latency 30. But maybe latency is not as important as I assume, old school as I am? :rolleyes:
  18. C

    Will air cooling be enough for 7950X?

    Basically, will a top air cooler such as Noctua ND15 cut the mustard on a AMD 7950X or should I expect some mild throttling? Another option would be Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 top mounted in a Phanteks P600S case. The GPU will be my current RTX 3090 or maybe a future 4090 but I’m are not...

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Yeah, I’m soon going to do the F5 routine on some websites in the hunt of the Seasonic Vertex. It was promised for December….

    Are there likely going to be new AM5 mobos released when Zen X3D releases?

    To be honest, I think the B650E motherboards present a pretty great compromise between features and price. AMD made a big mistake by launching the Zen4 with only the expensive 670 motherboards as people got the sentiment that AM5 would always be a very expensive option - and that impression...

    Anyone actually have a 650 or 650E Board yet?

    Yep, all I want is a review of the Asus B650E Rog Strix - either the E or F model. :(

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Yeah, got my eyes set on the Seasonic Vertex series too. Not entertaining the idea of a new build before it can be purchased because I want easy PSU cable management to a RTX 4090.

    Nvidia 4080 Reviews are out!

    Hopefully somebody will buy these to take the heat of the RTX 4090s - they are still quite difficult to get hold off. :rolleyes:

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    This guy claim that “There were no extreme bends and the cable was properly inserted into the socket ( click sound after inserting it)” - but still a melt:

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

    What do you mean by “plugging it in wrong”? If it is possible to plug 450/600W in “wrong” just like that, something is fundamentally messed up. Having said that, I think the issue is complex since we have yet to hear anything from nVidia / AIB, not even a rumor.

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

    Starting to look like this is a real issue, unfortunately. I’m pretty sure we will hear something official within the next two weeks - probably next week From nvidia and partner.

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

    It is beyond idiotic that these RTX 4090 cards doesn’t have the power connector at an angle or something that. Doesn’t the product managers use these cards themselves, like WTF?! Terrible QA and product development, top to bottom. You realize this like one minute after installing the cards...

    Looking Back At ATI Technologies

    This. I can still remember how much I was in awe of the visual quality that the card’s FP16 pipeline enabled on tech demos. Oh my… and it got performance to boot, nothing quite like it since. Interestingly, I was hoping that the RTX cards from nVidia would get me just as excited with the outlook...

    Is the RTX 4090 FE vaporware?

    In practical terms, it does look like vaporware here in Europe. I can find them listed on nVidia’s own UK webshop and German webshop, but not sure if any cards have actually been at sale there for a brief moment. Beyond that, I can’t source any. I think the FE models are mainly for the US...

    RTX 4090 CPU Bottleneck

    Have anybody seen any benchmarks showing how much uplift I can expect going from a 9900K to Raptor lake or Zen 4? I can’t seem to find anymore using 9900K or equivalent on the latest benchmarks for those new CPUs. :oops:

    RTX 4090, pc case

    Awesome, I actually come here to say that my research have pointed me to that case as being my top top candidate for a new build. 😎🥳

    RTX 4090 CPU Bottleneck

    Yeah this is what I am thinking too. My current 9900K is a fine CPU but certainly not king of the hill anymore. And the motherboard is a lowly Asus Tuf model, the PSU will probably not cut it etc etc.

    Gigabyte 4090 Gaming OC arrived - fits in Corsair 4000 Case

    Wow absolutely massive card! 🥵 But thanks a bunch for going through the installation, much appreciated!

    4090 Reviews are up.

    Very interesting as I haven’t paid attention to the PCI lanes situation on the new motherboards. Needless to say, if Metro Exodus is an omen of what to come to other games, you could be in a little of a pickle on the Raptor Lake platform if you also want to run a NVMe 5.0 PCI SSD drive. On the...

    More DLSS...

    I was actually fairly impressed with the image quality - the visual artifacts was more subtle and less distracting than I was expecting! Hmmm, that might actually be a thing. :cool:

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

    I have to admit that I was very intrigued by the new FE design when 3080/3090 came out but we all know how impossible they were to get hold on in the months after the launch. I might actually look into a 4090 FE eventually but not sure I can get any fair deal on my 3090.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Will the 4080 16GB be enough of an upgrade if you already have a 3090 / 3080Ti / 3080, I’m not so sure... In a sense the 4090 is the most interesting but obviously very expensive.
