  1. The only 8 pin connectors I can find for PCIe are dual is there any single 8 pin single connectors for Corsair Modular PSU?
  2. Alright I will just look up 8 pin pcie custom cords because I hate the ones my PSU has they dangle with extra parts and are bulky.
  3. My power supply unit came with some ugly 6+2 pin connectors labeled as PCIe and I currently have x2 hooked up to my 3080 but they have extras on it and look ugly dangling from my GPU but I also have x2 8 pin connectors labeled as CPU so I was wondering if I could just use those on my 3080 instead?
  4. yeah I've touched it a few times and felt it was hot just wanted to make sure that was normal cause my past cards didn't have a metal plating just the top of the card exposed.
  5. Also just out of curiosity the side of the card that is facing up has some kind of metal plating on top of it and that gets very hot is that normal? Like the card temp is only 50-60C while full load and the fans are on.
  6. So yesterday I installed my RTX 3080 and it's a big card but today I wanted to take it out because the thing that holds the cords behind it came lose and I wanted to push it back in place although it doesn't really make a difference I still wanted it to look nice. When I tried to push the lock back it doesn't move I've tried pushing really hard and even used a screw driver to push up against it but I don't want to use that much force and break it or even slip and hit my mobo. I've tried pulling it out but it's stuck on the end with the lock. I pushed it all the way back in and screwed it and it's still working fine but I don't want to damage the card or the mobo so what should I do?
  7. I got my GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3080 all set up and it's running smooth and it's amazing but after downloading RGB Fusion 2.0 my card doesn't appear on the list. If I have iCue running my RAM will show up but nothing else. I also downloaded AORUS ENGINE and the card showed up on there but not RGB Fusion. Specs: Motherboard - ASUS ROG Maximus XII Hero Z490 CPU - Intel Core i7 - 10700k Liquid Cooler - Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM GPU - GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3080 OC RAM – Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (4x8) 32GB 3600MHz M.2 SSD - Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB (PC/Gaming) SSD - Samsung 860 EVO SSD 500GB (Media) PSU - CORSAIR RM850x 80+ Gold Certified Mousepad - HyperX XXL Mouse - Logitech G Pro Wireless Keyboard - Razer Huntsman Elite Headset - Steelseries Arctic Pro Wireless Microphone - Blue Snowball Studio Main Monitor - (240hz) BenQ XL2740 Secondary Monitor - (144 hz) BenQ XL2411 Third Monitor - BenQ GW2480
  8. When I ran Cinebench a bunch of times while it was OC to 5GHz it ran up to temps of 90C and there wasn't any issues it scored a bit over 5k. Edit: I downloaded OCCT anyways and I'm currently running it. How long should I keep it going? While on Turbo mode it's currently on I'm not even reaching above 65C with max load across all cores.
  9. How would I stress test them individually? I've done Cinebench a bunch of times in a row and didn't run into any problems as well as the RAM has been swapped out I went from 2x16gb of 3600 and it happened and swapped to 4x8gb of 3600 and it still happened. My best guess is that you're right about the instability because I was just overclocking the CPU and RAM without really knowing much about it and just left everything else on Auto besides the cores and ram. I will just play for a few days with it on Turbo like this and see if it happens again. I'm also going to keep an eye on the fan to see if it ever turns on because even under load it hasn't turned on the only time it does is when the system starts up but I'm not sure if the fan only starts based on the temperature or how many watts it's using.
  10. I wouldn't say that because I play Apex Legends with almost near 300 FPS and my CPU load can reach up to 60-70% while playing that game at that fps but then again that's when I was running my CPU at 5GHz it doesn't reach that much load running on Turbo.
  11. I will just have to spend the day gaming and check later if the fan is spinning or not but I've occasionally have felt the back of my pc were the PSU is and it's never been more then a bit warm.
  12. Regardless shouldn't the fan turn on at some point while running cinebench or playing games for hours?
  13. Specs: Motherboard - ASUS ROG Maximus XII Hero Z490 CPU - Intel Core i7 - 10700k (OC: 5.00 GHz) Liquid Cooler - Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM GPU - GeForce RTX 2070 RAM – Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (4x8) 32GB 3600MHz (OC: 3800MHz) M.2 SSD - Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB (PC/Gaming) SSD - Samsung 860 EVO SSD 500GB (Media) PSU - CORSAIR RM850x 80+ Gold Certified I turned off the overclock for CPU and RAM and now it's just running on turbo mode so that might be it I will just continue to play on it like this and see if it happens again. The only reason I don't think it's to do with the OC is because I was playing on 5.00 GHz for over a month and never got the blue screen since I build the PC. Also upgrading the RTX 2070 to RTX 3080 once it arrives tomorrow so I just want to make sure everything is running smoothly when I put it in. Additional: It also could be something to do with the RTX 2070 it's almost 2 years old in a few months and it use to run with way worst components before I bought all new parts and build my new pc but like I said everything else is only a few months old.
