  1. Ill point out that your not going to see really any noticeable real-world improvement between a gen 3 and gen 4 nvme I know its disappointing to hear that. I actually booted windows faster on my old pc with a 970 evo than i do on my new 980 pro, i still need to find a way to disable the "_" black boot screen and cut the bios display time like i did on my old pc.
  2. probably less safe if your PSU is running over 100% when your power goes out or has a surge than if you had substantial headroom.
  3. Assuming they installed them correctly, yeah. It's def not the "best" airflow case from what I can see. Free fixes would be Double check all the fans are installed correctly, like intake on the front, exhaust on the back.\ Undervolt the GPU Find a way to mod the case for more airflow intake $$ Fixes better fans, if your not running noctua you can always do better. better case crazy advanced stuff which includes dismantling the gpu which i don't recommend But TBH unless your CPU and GPU reaches 90c, your not in serious dange
  4. Hard to tell, would be easier to tell what case it is from the front outside.
  5. From what I know RMAing means they will send you a replacement, not a refund, as a hardware company can't exactly just send you a refund for a item purchased somewhere else, nor would they want to. If the gpu is broken you should RMA it, the only thing worse than Not having a GPU is having a broken $800+ GPU. The gpu shortage is coming to a end now, mining on them is practically worthless now, china cracked down on it so chinese are flooding the market with used cards, etc.
  6. I just wonder why you put in the custom curve, was it getting much warmer on default curve?
  7. if true it means it does improve stability. this 3080 has crazy power swings so i guess i should... guess ill write this on my to-do list *boot cod* 40w--> 340w in 1 second
  8. Is it ok to use any port on the corsair 850w RMX, they specifically say Peripheral on the psu ittself, don't know if the slots are optimized for different hardware. The third 8pin is already plugged into a "Peripheral" slot though, theres only one dedicated gpu plug on the psu ittself lol
  9. I don't think it will do a thermal shutdown until it exceeds 90c. I actually think GPU's are designed to run at 80c, or close to it. Perhaps get rid of the custom fan curve & perhaps find a way to improve case intake of fresh air if it exceeds 80c Either way id set it to go up to 100% at 80c instead of 75c personally if you insist on a custom curve
  10. I have seen quite a few people saying NOT do do these two things. I have a 3080ftw3, the first two 8pins are from the same connector, the main one and the one that comes off from it, so a bunny ear, the third 8pin is it's own wire. Should I wire a third 8pin in? Is the power cleaner/more stable? Or is this just a meme.
  11. I spilled water on a PSU once and then it gave my gpu coil whine for years. not kidding, was probably unsafe, never burst out in flames luckily. So the answer is yes, its possible. I don't think if the noise was strictly coil whine though or maybe im just insane, but i swear when i put that gpu into a new pc the noise went away.
  12. Even on low game settings your gpu is going to still try to get to 100% usage and simply pump out higher frames. What's the problem, just that it hits 80c and that it gets loud? You could try capping your framerate in the nvidia control panel > 3d settings > global > max frame rate My EVGA 3080ftw3 also gets to the upper 70c's occasionally, with my gpu memory sometimes reaching upwards of 87c, but it's not "That" loud, its audible, but not a jet engine.
  13. Ultrawide makes gaming more enjoyable, might not be the peak for competitive fps but it wont hold you back, some games you get peripheral vision advantage. 34GN850-B is good, it has a cheaper version that just took away a couple ports, the 34GP83A-B
  14. I forced myself to get used to ~5800dpi The 16,000dpi setting is stupid, i don't see how anyone could use that well ever. I use my mouse around 6k dpi year round and my logitechs seem to last forever, my last 2 G502's are still sitting here very much alive collecting dust.
  15. I'm too scared to so much as scratch my expensive cpu
