Couldnt find anything negative about your psu and rtx 3070 online but Azrael1 is right. I dont think you need 1300w you just need one whom holds spikes easily. For instance i have 3080 with old evga 850g2 gold and all work flawlessly.
For future upgrade is good to buy strong psu rumour is that new rtx 40 series will draw around 350-400w


Good to hear thats the same PSU I've got Evga 850G2 Gold Supernova want to run a single Asus Tuf RTX3070Ti from it.

I have missed out on an FE as I excitedly bought a 3090 and then realised the pricing was a bit mental so I cancelled. I was really looking for a 3070 or 3080 but that chance is gone now to be honest.

I have a white build and I decided to purchase a 3080 Vision as they have dropped in price a bit now (still expensive!).

This is quite a long thread to read through but am I right in saying that basically any serial that is 2038 or below is bad, and any that is 2039 or above is good?

Hello sir!

I have looked for ages after a new cable for my 3080 Gaming OC 10g but cant find it(!).
Could you please help me to get a new cable, as the pins are not straight/or have been pushed down.

Really hope that you will see this and be able to answer me.
OR anyone else know where to get this cable? I have write to Gigabyte but no answer..

Have a good day.

Can you take a picture? Not sure exactly what cable you mean, whether it is an adapter supplied with the card, or that comes from the PSU?

Looks like the preinstalled extension cable that comes with the card to extend power plugs from PCB to end of the cooler.
If you google 'Gigabyte RTX 30 PCB Flat 8 Pin to PCIE 8 Pin Custom Adapter Cable' there should be a vendor (in China?) selling them in top result, not cheap though. Maybe possible to make your own though...

I have read so much diff. on these kind of companys :/ Also i wrote to Gigabyte support and they dont even wanna give me a new cable. HOW SICK IS THAT?! "Go to a PC shop and get it done".
So not just that they make this bad connector and problem for SO many - im also gonna open it up and PAY for the service hahahaha.. WOW. They should be ashamed, really. Im so chocked! And now they ignore my emails even..
I mean.. Its even their own cable, i would just have bought one if possible.. Not expensive..
