    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    Yes. Thank you. Also found the info on the evga forums/site. As well as posts by "enewt" that's tracking the progress of the queues. Thanks! Of course, I should have checked there first. I'm old and dumb.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I really hope that evga will still send me a queue notification for the other products I'm signed up for even after purchasing the 3080 FTW3 Ultra. . . cuz I sent that one to my nephew who spent all day on Christmas (via video call) building his first gaming rig without a decent video card...

    nvidia 3080 and 3090 cooler dumping heat directly onto cpu air cooler

    Just a quick follow-up. A video by Jayz Two Cents, without fully testing, just stated that the amount of air and the temperature of that air coming through is not going to matter. He said it was "warmish" but not hot and is coming out at such a velocity that it will just be absorbed by the...

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    It's Trump and Obama on the Grassy Knoll with the Nigerian Prince that is keeping you from having the video card you want. (I'm setting my auto-notifications and getting on with my life)

    nvidia 3080 and 3090 cooler dumping heat directly onto cpu air cooler

    I hope you're right. . . but I wasn't aware of a prior video coolers dumping channeled, heated air directly into the intake area of cpu tower coolers prior. But, then again, I'm not as into this stuff as I used to be. :)

    nvidia 3080 and 3090 cooler dumping heat directly onto cpu air cooler

    Hi All, Just finished watching the (paper) release video for nvidia ampere 3080 and 3090 video cards. One of the fans on the card grabs air from in front of the card, passes it through, and dumps it out the back of the card. . . directly into the CPU's space. For those of us who have gone...

    nicehash - trust to run on same system as sensitive data?

    I've got my kids' computers and our steam box in the living room using the good stuff. :) But, I appreciate the responses. Brought me back to reality. You know, when you start to lower your guard in moments of excitement or anxiety. ;)

    nicehash - trust to run on same system as sensitive data?

    Pehaps a silly question. . . but if you had a file server that was already running 24/7 and you thought: "Why not just throw my extra video card(s) in there and mine a bit!?!". . . Would you trust nicehash to run on a file server that potentially stores your backups, and other sensitive data? --H

    AIO Cooling - Performance Degrades Over Time?

    I used MX-4 from the get-go. Sadly, my H115i seems to just be a dud after about a year.

    AIO Cooling - Performance Degrades Over Time?

    Only real downside is aesthetics. My system certainly looks less modern and fancy than it did with the Corsair LED blazing white and just a couple of black tubes running to a largely hidden radiator. But. . . I only peer into the side of my case about three times a year. So. . .

    SOLVED: AIO temps suddenly jumped from 60 to 83 deg (H115i)

    I had the exact same experience with my H115i over the last couple weeks. And I too thought I had essentially resolved it after remounting and reapplying MX-4 TIM. Yet, a few days later, temps were climbing again. Keep an eye on it. You may find the same thing: Temps improve for a while. ...

    AIO Cooling - Performance Degrades Over Time?

    Conclusion: The H115i is failing. The Noctua NH-D15 performs better than the H115i ever did even when the H115i was new. Noctua NH-D15 - Test #1 6700K @ 4.6GHz adaptive voltage at 1.290v Prime95 v29.4 - 45 minutes - Custom/Minimum FFT set to 512 in 74.5f room 75c / 74c / 72c / 72c vs H115i...

    Corsair H115i installation and performance (initial observations)

    OP, I've got a 6700K and a H115i. May I ask what you're running to apply "full load" and for how long when you take those load temps?
