  1. Long story short, I took apart everything and voided my PSU’s warranty lol. Nothing, popped or melted. Something tells me something loud hit our house today. Windy Colorado weather. I ran Unigine Valley benchmark for about 2 hours without any artifacting or shutdowns.
  2. Have you tried DDU? I had to do that when I got mine and it’s been fine.
  3. Gonna do that as soon as I finish eating dinner. My gut is telling me it's the PSU... thanks for responding to my question. I just ran Superposition benchmark and got 10759 score (1080p extreme preset) which is roughly where it was before this happened. So I'm gonna pull my PSU out and see if I smell/see popped cap or whatever I find. Just makes me wonder how it can still function with a PSU with a popped cap, I thought the system would've shut off or something... thanks for responding to my question.
  4. So I was playing some Halo MCC: H2A on my PC. Then literally out of nowhere, I heard a really loud popping noise so loud that I jumped out of my seat, then my GPU's fans speed up then slowed down. No arti-facting or crashing or anything, the GPU seems ok. Did my PSU just blow a cap or something? How do I determine what popped? I'm hoping that the PSU did something stupid and my components are ok. I'm thinking I should pull out my PSU and see if I can notice any soder smell or anything. How should I test my GPU to ensure it's ok? Game on it and see if something weird happens? Kinda need help he
  5. So let me get this straight. OP is disagreeing with the fact that companies send out products for reviewers to make videos/articles about? Like I don't understand OP's point here, I mean if OP wants to become a tech reviewer to receive free "high end" GPU's or whatever, OP should start by building an audience then companies might take notice or however this stuff works. Personally, I think OP has a tad of jealousy creeping out on this thread. Otherwise, can someone help me understand what the hell is OP talking about? What is his point? Seems like incoherent arguing lol.
  6. Personally, I believe that owning a 5950X or 5900X, 10900K or 10700K, 3090 or 3080, and 6900XT or 6800XT isn't considered 'main stream' hardware. Like any hobby, you have to pay to get the best performance/experience. nVidia has always been expensive, now I do see your line of thinking. nVidia's last 'best' single GPU for consumers was the GTX 680 with a $499.99 launch price. Which was nearly 9 years ago now, fast forward to today, now your looking at a $1499.99 MSRP for the 3090. So take into account inflation from 2012 to today, ~$567.00 for a GTX 680 compared to a $1499.99 RTX 3090. Anyway,
  7. No problem. Glad to help. Here's the thing, my 5930K bottlenecks my 3080 in some games/applications. But surprisingly in 90% of my games doesn't suffer from my 5930K slowing down my 3080's potential. Granted I'm using a 1440p 165Hz G-sync display, so in most games I'm GPU limited, if I was using a 1080p display then that would be a different issue all together.
  8. If you can afford a 3070 then go for that. A 5600X will not bottleneck a 3060 Ti or a 3070.
  9. The closest thing I've seen was stopping a younger adult from walking into traffic. She had her head down on her phone and wasn't paying attention to the oncoming traffic and almost walked into oncoming vehicles, lucky I noticed and gripped her shoulder. Luckily she stopped and smiled at me then we went on our ways. This happened in downtown Denver CO. I think OP doesn't realize that people wearing headphones aren't in danger from traffic, muggers, ect.
  10. Nope, everyone that has an Apple computer also has a Windows machine. Your forgetting that Apple actually doesn't give a shit about gamers and game developers don't give a shit about MacOS. Also Windows has a lot more support from software developers than Apple, and Windows has always seemed like the OS for gaming on, it's nice that linux has been gaining more attention from game developers, but I really don't think MacOS will gain that kind of traction.
  11. EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra 460.89 Driver (GeForce Experience keeps my drivers up to date)
  12. Can you return it and exchange it through the store (in person or online)? If not fill out an RMA ticket with Acer and let that run process begin... assuming it’s still under warranty.
  13. I wouldn’t worry about it. I use one split cable (8x2 pin) and one separate 8 pin on my 3080 without any problems. No weird issues and clock speeds stay up when gaming.
  14. Damn, maybe it’s the HDMI port on your monitor then? Since you’ve tried it on another separate monitor with the same cable and we definitely know it’s not your GPU (thankfully).
