Just seen that there's an FE 3080ti available from Nvidia.
I managed to bag one on the last drop, so just returning the compliment such that a fellow OCUK member can hopefully buy it.
I see a member on here is being a scalper on AVF
Yep sadly he is also scalping ps5's too all the time. Funny I even tried to help the guy at one point with an issue .. Anyways ... many more on here are doing the same just using different names on AVF but easy to spot them as they normally can't sell there then come on the MM and post exactly the same items and copy and paste text. Anyways ...
Happy to see some of you guys got an FE tonight .
This is my first FE. Heard and read great things about them like OC ability etc and overall quality of the cooler and stuff. Cannot wait. Will also look nicer in my new build as that is themed rather like a space ship which the Gigabyte slightly doesn't fit in with
Your Intel 12700k build will now be totally complete , happy you finally got one mate, you will love it for gaming and productivity. Make sure to update some pictures of your build with it in .
I think my X5650 might struggle with the 3080 Ti, but I am planning to upgrade to a 12700K system when DDR5 is more available.
I'm more worried if my 14 year old 850W PSU is going to throw a hissy fit!
I wouldn't bother with DDR5, just get a DDR4 Z690 motherboard with a 12700k, real world makes no difference and the 12700k is the star of the show out of the new cpus.
The old PSU will probably be a problem, depending how good it is and how hard of a life its had.
You may also find your x58 motherboard may not agree with the new card and not post.
^DDR4 here with standard 3600 CL18 (64GB) and my benches match up to those on review sites really. I would not worry about DDR5 for at least another 12-24 months until the latency yields something noticeable in real world.
Will post a pic of the installed innards although tbf it will look not much different to before lol just with a nicer looking card
As for PSU, I think I should be good, I have a 750 watt Phanteks AMP which is a Seasoninc on the inside and reviewed quite highly when I got it a year or so ago so am confident that it will suffice since the 3080 Ti draws around 100 watts more than the 2070 Super I have currently.
