  1. Yes, let's compare 2 products from different lineups, that makes complete sense. One being X model and other being non-x model does matter. You said that people in the other thread were "trying to draw conclusions that agree with their preconceived conclusions even though the data is very much incomplete", but you are literally doing the exact same thing.
  2. Yes, marketing like this is pretty much a cancer. Sadly, selling out for a fancy TV and a graphics card (hey, at least it's better than selling out just for an early access to a non-flagship card) is completely accepted by PC community.
  3. Because there is no space for it in the product stack. The gap between 3080 and 3090 is 7-10%. It can't be faster than 3080 without totally killing off 3090. Also, while 3090 is a good workstation card, it's not a great one. So you can't really use productivity as an outlier. And if 20GB 3080 is real after all, releasing 12GB version of 3090 makes no sense either.
  4. Jesus, check Gamers Nexus review. Tehc Jesus teared Nvidia whole bunch of new holes.
  5. I think it is safe to say that there won't be 3080 Ti, despite what some people were suggesting. I guess the 20 GB version of 3080 won't be any faster either. Tho Nvidia will probably release card that is even faster than 3090 in a year or so.
  6. It's pretty much is. It doesn't perform that well, but you won't find many tower coolers that have fans with 300 RPM starting point.
  7. Ninja 5 is the ultimate silent air cooler. Sadly, performance does suffer a bit.
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2Zis8RjcX8 A12x25 are definitely the best fans, but Arctic P12s are so damn close you probably shouldn't buy Noctuas.
  9. Well, we don't know that just yet. It is possible that FE will run hotter and louder, just like usual.
  10. Flip a coin between Fuma 2 and Cryorig R1 Universal.
  11. Yeah, it's a downgrade compared to 240 AIO, but it is not that expensive, which seems to be important for the OP
  12. Even the shittiest Chinesium PSUs should have 8+6 pin power connector for the graphics card. So yeah, should be fine to use it.
  13. Yes, just shut it down from the Windows. You can check BIOS settings if there is an option to turn off the lights.
  14. Congratulations, you have killed your PSU. You are not supposed to turn off the PSU switch at the back constantly.
  15. Then go with the RTX 3080. P.S. 2k monitor means monitor with roughly 2000 horizontal pixels, 16:9 ratio 1080p monitor has 1920 horizontal pixels, thus it's an actual 2k monitor. Marketing dumbasses were looking for a fancy way of marketing 1440p monitors and they came up with name "2k" that has literally no meaning.
  16. 1. Why would you pair a RTX 3080 or 3090 with 1080p monitor? 2. Monitor will not limit your FPS unless you choose to do so via settings (i.e. VSync).
  17. inb4 stock cooler is literally welded in place, which means no water blocks for FE cards But damn, that's a beautiful card.
  18. Why exactly would you need to remove backplate in order to remove tape that holds backplate to the back side of the motherboard?
  19. Or when you dismiss what everyone says and act stubborn. Totally not aimed at OP
  20. Why would you trust two rebranders instead of company who actually does negineering on their products? Basically, both Corsair and NZXT are same shit with same mediocre fans and equally mediocre pumps. Difference would be bigger with higher power draw, but if you plan on just gaming, then either is fine.
  21. No. No, it shouldn't. D15> U12A=DRP4. Tho Fuma 2 performs about the same as U12A or DRP4, doesn't block any RAM or PCIe slots and doesn't look like someone's cat vomited all over their PC. Not to mention it is usually cheaper and just as quiet as both. I'd also look for other coolers, such as R1 Universal/Ultimate.
  22. Arctic F120/P120 PWM PST, you can daisy chain up to 5 fans and run them off one header. If you want something more spicy, Bionix version fans are available (higher upper RPM limit, , but they are more expensive and you can't buy them in value packs.
