  1. Hi everyone! If anyone here owns the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3080 Ti LC OC, how well does it perform for you? Like: 1. what clockspeeds are you getting at stock 2. how warm is the GPU and VRAM 3. if overclocking or undervolting, what are your results 4. how is your case configured in terms of airflow, cooling, placement of GPU AIO etc Seems like this 3080 Ti model isn't so popular but ey - maybe someone on here owns it Thanks
  2. Just ordered the 7000X case from Corsair. I need space for the new GPU and also this gives me room for a future CPU 360mm AIO. 

    Kinda bummed out actually - I really like the 680X case, especially with ColdZero's front and top mods installed - really, really good airflow. 


    But ey, the 7000X has good enough airflow too and I can spec it out fully with fans. 

    Also changed to a black case. I've been using white cases since 2013 but now I wanna try black again. The 7000X looks fantastic in black with its tempered glass panels and RGB fans. 

  3. Alright, so, something great just happened 😊

    First of all, I'm one of the unlucky ones with a 30 series ROG STRIX card with fan rattle - the huge issue. 

    I wrote to Komplett, the retailer where I bought my ROG STRIX 3090 non-OC card, explained to them the situation and sent them the links to the huge forums threads about the above issue, and told them that if possible, I'd like to RMA my card and possibly switch it out with the ROG STRIX 3080 Ti OC LC model, both because they have this model in stock but also because the more exotic cooler which could compensate for the downgrade (3090 to 3080 Ti) and it being an OC version compared to my non-OC 3090. 

    I was kinda expecting Komplett to say "No sorry, but you can get a refund" because I actually gave them less money for the 3090 at release than compared to the current price of the ROG STRIX 3080 Ti OC LC model. 


    But if they were to say yes, I then asked if they possibly could send me the 3080Ti OC LC before I send them back my 3090, because having a PC with a GPU isn't really "fun" - and they agreed to this! 

    So basically, they actually gave me a new graphics card that cost more than I paid them at first and they even sent it to me "Up-front". Talk about amazing support hah? 

    So now I'm totally excited - I'm actually ending up getting more performance because I have undervolted my 3090 to 1725MHz to make it "silent" under load. Also, it's going to be great to not having to worry about backside memory temps anymore. 

    Komplett ftw ❤️

      you're happy you changed a 3090 to a 3080ti?


      probably a non-LHR card, which worth much more??


      i mean, whatever floats your boat

      Yes I am very happy. 

      I don't care at all about LHR, mining and all that. I only care about silent gaming. So this new card is a much better choice for me. It will even increase my gaming performance.

      i mean, market value is much higher is my point

      but if you think it's a good deal then sure

      I hear what you say and yeah I could possibly make some money of my 3090 but I just want my stuff to work, and honestly, if the 3080 Ti OC LC was out at the same time as the 3090,  I would have picked the 3080 Ti anyways. 

  4. The card with 3 fans might clock 50MHz higher out of the box, and run a tat cooler and quieter but I'm sure the 2 fans version will be just fine. Also, if you do a little undervolt tweaking, you can easily match the stock performance of the 3 fan variants with the 2 fan cooler.
  5. True - my thought was that he could monitor his temps while PC was under load, then take of the sidepanel and see if temps would drop.
  6. Until you figure out how to properly ventilate your case, you should probably consider taking off the sidepanel.
  7. What a crazy build man, you're gonna LOVE it. Awesome
  8. First of all, I don't know about Diablo II but New World is beta and unoptimized - also it was confirmed that the EVGA cards that broke had a fault. It was not New World's fault, New World just triggered this fault in the graphics cards. Yes, I have also seen others report that their graphics card have died in New World, all sort of models, AMD and Nvidia cards but nothing was ever confirmed as far as I know - only the EVGA cards was confirmed, and by EVGA themselves. Some games just utilize the graphics cards much harder than most other games - two examples would be Days Gone and
  9. You need a new CPU, and with that, a new motherboard and preferably a 3200MHz CL16 dual channel RAM kit as a minimum, then you will feed the beast
  10. Oh right, gotcha. Glad it works for you Please remember though that AVX workloads will cause the CPU to lower clockspeeds and voltage, so you will probably hit higher voltages than 1.258 in CPU heavy games, that do not use AVX instructions.
