    I have no doubt that you are getting your fair chunk of the cards, of course you are. Shame then that that fair chunk hasn't been sent out to the thousands that have been waiting for months. No doubt you have had a few thousand cards in, but sadly only a fraction of those have gone out to the...

    Yes , no problems with any other card then? TUF and strix all good then? Eagle isn't the only queue that has hardly moved. So I will be going down 11 places in the queue then next week? When we hear 22 coming we do a calculation that probably half will be released to the queue, because that is...

    I didn't misunderstand your first post, I know what you are claiming. Problem is, I am not much of a co-incidence theorist. You have had far more cards in than have been released to these queues. That's as obvious as 2 plus 2. Most weeks we have had 50--60 cards released, sometimes 0 and a...

    Do you know the origin of the phrase "conspiracy theory"? It was the CIA, when thay wanted to handle the assassination of Kennedy.. Any other idea other than the official story was widely termed "conspiracy theory" by all media outlets in the USA at the "request" of the agency. It was to quell...

    No surprise, it is pretty antagonising to us. We have had pre build customers who ordered mid October, get an asus tuf a week ago, despite thousands being in the queue in front of him. Retail cards being allocated to prebuilds as a priority. No way to dress it up, it stinks. I ordered an hour...

    I can think of a knob that that ferrari needs to replace. The one that I am thinking of is pretty cheap though!

    That "AMD 3080" sounds good. They have shipped over 1500 of them! While this poor queue for the nvidia 3080 has probably had 600 to 650 delivered. Only once has there been over 100 in a week, some weeks we've had none, most 50ish. But that "AMD 3080" has been sent out in much bigger numbers.

    At this stage Teal, I am not too bothered what you think, your choice of retailers, your opinion of what anyone thinks or where they will choose to buy in the future or anything else quite frankly.

    You are most definitely sticking up for OC. Suggesting implausible explanations, muddying the water and doing all that you can to obfuscate. All of the evidence of foul play is there but anything other than a signed confession from Gibbo will be passed off by you as "circumstantial". The fact...

    You don't half sound like Gibbo to me. You don't seem to be too keen on the truth, you must at least be related right? You aren't sticking up for OC? Come on mate. That isn't true is it? So to try to muddy the water a little more, this is now just a conspiracy theory, right? Cards didn't...

    Good god. A new account with all 4 posts defending OC with such imagination. Is that you Gibbo? And you got your mates involved too I see, all at once. So we have 2 queues now for retail cards. And the prebuilt queue comes before the queue despite being a month or so after in ordering. They are...

    My "so called" facts? Are you serious? What would you like, Lord Lucan Gibbo to suddenly appear out of nowhere and for him to forget that he is not just a stranger to the truth, but has never actually been introduced to it? Fact, prebuilds are being shipped with retail cards. Fact, people who...

    I am not missing anything, maybe that is your problem. I have pointed out that yes, OC have prioritised the RETAIL cards that they bought. And they have prioritised prebuilds, I think we agree on that. I also agree it SEEMS unfair because it is unfair. I will not stop talking just because it...

    So gigabyte are selling retail packaged cards as SI/OEM? We both know that will never happen don't we? The margins on these cards are not great are they? But distributors are now selling retail packaged stock as OEM? The chance of that happening is less than zero. Can you think of something even...

    Newsflash? AIBs do not sell retail packaged stock as OEM/SI! Never, ever, not a chance. I guess the flying pigs who are distributing it got their magic wands out and abracadabra?

    The retail card in question is a gigabyte. So now Gigabyte are selling retail cards through distribution to OC, not direct? And they are selling retail cards as SI/OEM? Blimey O'Reilly.

    Selling these as part of a prebuild is still much more profitable. Instead of making money on just a card, now they can make money on multiple components. They might only markup 10% for the build but each component will be 30%+ profit on top. So the guy earlier who spent £2700 on his new...

    So the AIBs are giving big discounts on the majority of cards that they are sending to OC. This at a time of extreme shortages. And to put the icing on the cake, they are sending these cards in retail packaging! If there is anything about any of that which you find even 1% plausible, then there...

    So now AIBs are sending OEM/SI stock out in retail packaging? Is that what you are saying?
