  1. Not that anyone cares at this point, but I now have the C850 paired with the ROG 3090 and it runs great. The stock cables from the C850 don't look as clean as cable mod, but they aren't bad. I can hide the extra plug doodads pretty well. Would recommend.
  2. But I think you may have gotten me on the right track for research!
  3. Alright bois, I have finally ordered my ASUS ROG STRIX 3090 and have a few questions. (look at signature for build info) The first is about my PSU. I also purchased along side the 3090 a NZXT C850 Gold PSU. I already have this because I originally was going to get a 3080, but well here I am. Is this enough? From what I can tell it should be with my build. Second Question is about Cable Extensions. I found these which come with 3 PCIe connectors however it is 18AWG. Now to be doing maths I can see that 18AWG should be fine for a 3090, but Asiahorse says that 18 AWG is NO
  4. Here is a stream for the Nvidia 3000 cards, but there are also several that are available from this stream, if you ask in the chat, they will help you out.
  5. They do exist, I have never used one personally, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
  6. You could test this with HWINFO and see if they are hovering in the high temp range. Re-seating it could have also helped. Maybe you just got lucky? Sometimes when things are good its best to leave them that way and not worry about it lol
  7. I haven't bought any, I was just trying to get the info out there for people who may really need a a high powered PSU, but didn't want to spend $200+ on it.
  8. It was this one. As you can see the price is high again. I understand prices are still high overall, but I know a few people are pretty desperate for PSU's right now since the release the 30 series and RDNA 2.. Its not just Seasonic either, Corsair, NZXT, and EVGA are starting to go down in price, still high, but definitely starting to pop up with prices lower than before. You are right though, I feel like this is going to be the norm until everything stabilizes..
  9. The link does not take me to your list, it takes me to what would be mine..
  10. Well it really depends on what you are building but I would recommend the Seasonic anyway only because it is a better, more trusted brand.
  11. Hey all I wanted to let you guys know that I have notice PSU prices are (Very slowly) starting to drop. This morning I saw a Seasonic PX-850 for $169 which is still high, but certainly lower than it has been. I began to look through the internet to see if any other sites had similar prices and what were $200+ prices last week, are now below $150 this week for the same PSUs. I just wanted to help anyone that is in need of a PSU. The Websites I checked were Amazon, NewEgg, and Microcenter.
  12. So I am going to throw in my 2 cents. TO start off, you have a pretty solid build here. The first thing is the storage. 500Gb is pretty good if you aren't going to be playing games like MW or Cold war as they can run about 200Gb a pop. Samsung Evos are some of the best in the game, but also among the most expensive. Crucial and Sabrent make very good M.2s for much less (sometimes) than Samsung. It would be worth checking out. The GPU is the next thing. A GTX 1660 Ti would be better than a super and *SHOULD* cost the same, maybe a little more than the R 580. The problem
  13. I did this once and it was when my PC was hitting the 8 years old mark. Upgrading had not crossed my mind until I built a brand spanking new system for a friend. Needless to say I upgraded 2 months after I built his lol. As for his specs, he has a very solid balance build where I wouldn't say anything is "over the top" nor is it budget. Just a really great system that will last him years to come.
