  1. I sincerely thank @TVwazhere, @BondiBlue, @Ankh Tech & @LpoolTech for your advice - I agree, it could work, but I personally wouldn't find it aesthetically pleasing. I have decided to try @Biohazard777's solution, as I am in no rush at the moment and will continue later this week or next week, depending on how much time I have. Here's how it's going so far (in case anyone is interested): General specifications: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Cooling: ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360 MOBO: ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
  2. Hey @TVwazhere & @BondiBlue I don't think I can route the cable over the fan... Look:
  3. Hey all, I am building a PC in the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic case and have noticed that the stiff and rather large front panel USB 3.0 connector is preventing me from installing Corsair LL120 (intake) fans as seen on the picture below: Does anyone have a solution or know where to buy a softer SMALLER USB 3.0 front panel extension cable in EUROPE? I sincerely thank you all in advance
  4. Hahhaah, yeah there are some 3080's and 3090's in stock here in Slovenia too. RTX 3080's are going for around $2800 and 3090's for anywhere from $3500-$5000 and beyond.
  5. On the one hand I get what you're trying to say and agree with not stressing too much about things that are relatively unimportant. However, every one of us has a certain hobby or passion. Some people like to paint, modify cars, go hiking, etc. and other people like all things tech, which is what I believe this forum is about. So I fully understand peoples frustration regarding this shortage @freeagent.
  6. Yeah I don't see thing getting any better by the end of this year (2021). If anything I've seen some stock come and go, but at the moment it seems like everything has been depleted.. What are your guys' predictions in reference to availability and pricing for the rest of the year and 2022?
  7. I understand and sympathize with your situation and realize GPU prices in general are ridiculously high, but what I've learnt over the past year of waiting for a chance to purchase one at a reasonable price is to stop waiting and purchase one when available. In Europe in particular there aren't many queuing systems in place, so unless you've queued early on, which you have @Doug_Dangger, I'd recommend you absolutely 100% reconsider and purchase the RTX 3070 for $850, as on the used market they are selling above $1200 easily. I have, in fact, observed most of them going for around $1400-$1500.
  8. Slow (if thermal throttling) Hot Loud skip if you can
  9. Nvidia wouldn't sell me a GPU, so I said f*ck it and purchased a Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 6900 XT SE instead together with a LG UltraGear 27GL850-B monitor Also, I'm a huge Nvidia fanboy, but getting an Nvidia card right now is hilariously difficult + Dr. Lisa Su is cute The rest of my components, which haven't even been unboxed yet: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360 MOBO: ROG Strix X570-E Gaming RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo DIMM kit 32GB, DDR4-3600, CL18-22-22-42 (F4-3600C18Q-32GTZN) Storage: Samsung SSD 9
  10. For the whole PC, or just the GPU @BLT_Sharpies..? Because 3060 Ti's or 3070's won't fit your budget, as they quite simply are your budget (unless you get them at MSRP) .
  11. Btw @BLT_Sharpies if you don't mind me asking I think it would be a good thing to let people know what kind of budget you're working with, so that they may give you better suggestions and information
  12. The difference between 16GB and 32GB might be anywhere from $50-$100 and while it's in no way insignificant I'd say in 2021 it's 100% worth it. In my opinion 16GB has become the new standard minimum whether we like it or not..
  13. Thanks @Stahlmann, I am aware of this. I actually wanted to go for a nice 34", but none were in stock and that wasn't going to change any time soon. The 27GP850 was and will (according to many many retailers here) be unavailable for quite some time. I got what I considered to be (or have been) one of the best 1440p monitors on the market. While I believe that the new 27GP850 is better than the old one, I also think that the difference definitely won't be night and day and am happy with my decision Regardless, good heads-up for people who might want to wait a little longer to
  14. Thanks @Stahlmann. Yeah, I contacted pretty much every store here in Slovenia explaining my situation and use case, however all of them told me they don't really do queues, so it's first come first serve, which due to the nature of my daily life makes it impossible and silly for me to have my eyes glued to the stock availability status on lots of websites. I really don't know who else to practically beg in order to even get a chance of buying an Nvidia 3000 series GPU and don't know anyone "on the inside" who could "hook me up". So I'm jokingly going to come to thi
  15. MSFS 2020 requires the best possible GPU and CPU combo with 32GB of RAM.. it's (un)fortunately that simple @BLT_Sharpies
