  1. Hm, good to know. I'd imagine it whines pretty damn badly when paired with a 3080 because of its double forward topology though, lol. The W1 is rated 80+ White and is more likely to light up like a Christmas tree than to work fine with a 3080.
  2. Well... could you maybe check what it is? There's quite a significant difference between the v1 and v2. If it's the v2, even if it's not exactly ideal, it'll likely work. If it's the v1, get a new PSU.
  3. Is it the MWE White v2 or just the regular, older MWE White?

  5. EVGA probably has a dozen 80+ Bronze rated PSUs. It'd be useful if you could let us know which exact model it is (B2, B5, BT, BQ, etc.), though even if it was say the B2 (which I think is the best out of their Bronze units atm), I still wouldn't get my hopes up in it running a 3080 without any hiccups. Best (probably) case scenario, you undervolt and/or lower the power limit on the 3080 and it works. Worst case, you need to buy a new PSU if it straight-up doesn't work, or if you've got a crappy group reg that you shouldn't be powering even your current system with.
  6. What do you plan on using your system for, exactly? What is your budget (and location) for the memory?
  7. 150 quid over what you were already paying for the Strix? Ouch. Especially considering the fact that the FTW3 actually has a worse PCB than the Strix, I personally wouldn't take it, but that's just me.

  9. It's using your system's memory, since the SN550 doesn't have a DRAM cache of its own, hence the speeds faster than what the PCIe 3.0 (or even 4.0) x4 bus allows.
  10. Yup, XMP but with 2933MHz, as opposed to 3200. Technically, the memory controller on your CPU is only rated for 2933MHz. Granted, the chances of the IMC to not handle anything more than 2933MHz are... quite slim, but at least if the same is happening at 2933MHz, then that kind of rules out the weak IMC possibility. In that case (if it's still unstable at XMP with 2933MHz), disable XMP and run MemTest with the memory running stock.
  11. If it's a two stick kit (so 2x16GB, as opposed to 4x8GB), install them in slots 2 and 4 on the board if you haven't already. Go into the BIOS and make sure that enabling the XMP also sets your DRAM voltage to 1.35V. If those two things were already true, enable XMP and set the memory's frequency to 2933MHz, then test the memory for stability with HCI MemTest (or even MemTest86 should give you a fairly rough idea of whether your memory's stable or not). If the memory is stable at 2933MHz, you could either just have a super weak memory controller on your CPU. If it's still
  12. What exact memory kit is it that you're using? What's your VCCSA (or System Agent) voltage set to when XMP is enabled (you can check using HWiNFO64)?
  13. The Mesh is significantly better in terms of its cooling performance.
  14. Well... there you go. Something like a Lancool II Mesh would offer much better ventilation than your current H510, but it won't change the fact that sticking your graphics card right up against a solid glass panel will result in high temperatures. You're not giving the fans enough room to breathe. If you're absolutely set on keeping your card mounted vertically, then specifically look for a case that allows a decent amount of space between the card and side panel, when mounted vertically. The Phanteks P500A for example allows for triple slot cards in the vertical mount, meani
