In the end I've ended up with a Gigabyte 3080 Gaming OC which I managed to find for £970.
Very little coil whine which seems mostly to occur in game menus only, which is not an issue for me. Considering how the prices and stock availability seems to be getting ridiculous again, I'm quite happy...
Would you pick the Suprim X over the Rog Strix?
UPDATE: I just got my 2nd HOF card today and the coil whine is just as bad as the first card. I'm really disappointed and not sure where to go from here especially as the prices of 3080 ti's has increased.
I might try a 3rd PSU but I doubt it'll change anything. Don't buy this GPU.
General feel and look of the HOF was greatly superior than the gigabyte eagle I had. The HOF felt and looked premium, even the unboxing experience was great. Gigabyte was like a big standard brick. I've opened cereal boxes with more joy.
Just a shame that my HOF had this severe coil whine. I'm...
No I haven't yet as I'm still waiting for the refund from the Gigabyte. This doesnt sound very promising though... I was hoping mine was a one off, unlucky card. However customer support from overclockers has been good. I'm hoping the next card will be problem free.
I'm going to be taking another chance on this HOF card as the Gigabyte Eagle I got today has a faulty PCIE port and I cant fit my psu 8 pin cable into it. So this is going back as faulty.
Hopefully when I get another HOF it won't have severe coil whine... just a note, the HOF needs 3x 8 pin...
So I finally got my hands on a 3080 from Overclockers, I went for the 3080 ti upgrade offer of a KFA2 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti HOF.
However I'm getting very loud coil whine when playing some games. I used to get this on my Zotac 2060 when in game menus, but this is much, much worse and is...
Thanks for the info guys. I have found that the ultrawide resolution is rather demanding on the fps, so hence my concern about losing g sync, although I am on a 2060 atm, so a fairly big upgrade if I go 3080 or 6800xt.
I'll have a think about it and try and make a decision!
Thanks for the reply. It's an AOC AGON AG352UCG6 which I believe is one of the older ones, so not AMD compatible?
I suppose I could test out some games atm with g sync turned off, see if I notice any differences.
Would be a shame to miss out on my monitors main feature, also would be a pain...
As many of us I am still in the queue for my RTX 3080 and am starting to lose the will to live. I am now seeing AMD 6800XT's become available and possibly offered as a replacement to us people waiting in the 3080 queue.
My question is regarding the fact that I have an ultrawide...
