    Yeah, without RT I get 85fps+.

    Why 3d print when CNC will do a better job?

    vong got a reaction from james_bond in Curious about the FLAC audio format   
    This to me sounds like you think ripping to FLAC is going to magically make your music from the speakers sound better. CD quality is still very much good, that's why they still exist.

    vong got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in AMD Ryzen accounts for over 25% of CPUs among Steam users via Steam's Hardware Survey   
    25% in 3 years. Given how hard of a time AMD is giving Intel right now, it won't be long till they get to 50%.

    vong got a reaction from spartaman64 in rtx 3080 aorus extreme 3x8 pin or 2x8 pin   
    The Xtreme has 3x8 pins. The master has 2x8 pins. Both have basically the same cooler, apparently the Xtreme has a slightly larger vapor chamber.

    vong reacted to FaxedForward in 3080/3090 - the current issues, problems and solutions as of 30/09/2020   
    Gigabyte has a statement now:
    https://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/dominic-moass/gigabyte-issues-statement-in-response-to-rtx-3080-3090-capacitor-controversy/
     
    “In response to the recent reports speculating that the use of POSCAP capacitors on the GeForce RTX 3080/3090 graphics cards could lead to stability issues and crashes, we would like to clarify the issue with the following statement:
     
    “It is false that POSCAP capacitors independently could cause a hardware crash. Whether a graphics card is stable or not requires a comprehensive evaluation of the overall circuit and power delivery design, not just the difference in capacitor types. POSCAPs and MLCCs have different characteristics and uses, thus it is not true to assert that one capacitor type is better than the other.
     
    “The GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards are designed in accordance with NVIDIA specifications, and have passed all required testing, thus the product quality is guaranteed. GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3080/3090 GAMING OC and EAGLE OC series graphics cards use high-quality, low-ESR 470uF SP-CAP capacitors, which meet the specifications set by NVIDIA and provide a total capacity of 2820u in terms of GPU core power, higher than the industry’s average. The cost of SP-CAP capacitors is not lower than that of MLCCs. GIGABYTE values product integrity highly and definitely does not reduce costs by using cheap materials.
     
    “NVIDIA has released a driver (version 456.55) on September 29, 2020 that improves stability. Users are advised to update to the latest driver for optimized performance. For users who encounter power-related issues with GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, GIGABYTE will provide product replacement, free of charge.
     
    “GIGABYTE has been constantly improving and optimizing product quality, especially in terms of thermal designs, to provide the best gaming experience to the consumers for decades. For the latest AORUS GeForce RTX 30 graphics card series, we have also paid extra attention to the cooling performance and introduced industry-leading solutions such as MAX-Covered Cooling to ensure that the operation of each component is stable.”

    Only thing I can think of is that it's just those certain games. Best you can do is look up the errors for those games and try fixes.

    vong got a reaction from Deli in Gigabyte accidentally confirms more Ampere SKUs, 3080 20GB, 3070 16GB & 3060 8GB   
    I was afraid nvidia will pull this super BS again. Looks like more waiting for everyone that wanted a new card to make a final decision.

    Find news of the 3080 in your country. I just found out Australia will be getting the FE editions but only one store will be selling them and it'll be like a lottery at getting the chance to buy one.

    vong got a reaction from Vrikes in Best monitor for a 3080 build   
    I personally recommend the Asus PG348Q as I think it's kinda the best of both worlds (resolution/refresh rate) and it's actually affordable for what it is.

    vong got a reaction from DesolationGod in How often do people usually upgrade gpu?   
    I've got a 1080 ti and it unfortunately isn't up to it for my needs anymore which is kinda crazy for a card that's only just over 3 years old. It's still a beast but if I can't get over 85fps at high-max settings playing at 3440x1440p on newer titles then it's time to move on.

    I am 100% sure they are the exact same cards. The BE being a Black Edition, just pick whichever.

    Putting the radiator to the side is not going to make a difference to exhaust. You're thinking the radiator is a restriction. You're better of making the side fans into an exhaust, that'll help more than what you're thinking of doing,

    I would call those panel more along the lines of sound treatment than proofing. It'll stop more echoing in the room rather sound going through the wall.

    vong got a reaction from kirashi in Lost my laptop and $1900 selling on eBay   
    Man, you done goofed yourself. I would be so mad at myself if I were in your situation as that is a rather large sum you lost. Most important things with selling on ebay are:
    1. do not take payments outside of ebay
    2. always check for payment before sending
    3. double check mailing addresses and ask the buyer if you're unsure of their address
    4. always provide a tracking number and keep the reciept
    5. expensive items should be insured and be signed on delivery
    6. take pictures/videos of a working item before sending so buyers can't fraud you
     
    You just have to do everything you can to protect yourself.
     
    It's possible you could get police involved since you've got their address details.

    I thought those arms were 2 seperate pieces, new pictures had me confused. Looks like you need to push the tab down and maybe unhook it from the pastic frame.

    Try pushing the black tabs a bit and while doing so, push the vertical bits of metal in towards the heatsink.

    I had a 550w G3 and didn't like it. The fan would kick on for no reason and very audible. Why not call up about your order and see if can cancel it and buy from somewhere else?
