    I can't understand this.. Well done like but on my phone and was clicking the boat symbols and its like it was frozen and not allowing me to click. Is this the same on pc or just phone? I can't compete with those who can just have a pic in front of them there and then.. now I'll have to endure seeing some again on auction site for double the price. I just want to be done with this and finally get one for my pc.

    I could see a price on the 3080FE after getting through captcha but no option to add to basket, now shows out of stock.

    I clicked the link a soon as it came through on partAlert, had to do a bloody capcha and then there was no button to buy. Couple refreshes later and it's 'out of stock'. Sigh

    And why does it let you go straight through to buy with the 3090 fe with no captcha?

    I did it through my phone, and it wasn't straight away either. They must have a system in place or something.

    sounds like a second or two mattered. I got the link but wasn't on my PC so had to go through my slower tablet, that might have made the difference.

    I have Distill setup to refresh every 5 seconds too but it was actually a notification from OCUK forum from this thread that I noticed first. Then about a minute later, Distill notified me. Not sure if we can share links to the page used on here but I setup two pages on Distill and only one of them alerted me. The approach that worked to order a 3090 was:

    Nvidia store > filter on RTX 3090 > filter on NVIDIA > copy URL to Distill > use Distill 'select parts of page' function > select the 'Out of Stock'/'Buy Now' button.

    The method that did not work was:

    Nvidia store > copy URL to Distill > use Distill 'select parts of page' function > select the 'Out of Stock'/'Buy Now' button.

    I think you have to go through NVidia. That's what I did anyway. As soon as I got the tweet I went to Nvidia store and went from there.

    Managed to pay for one and have the initial email, now I'm praying I won't get an email that it was too late and order was cancelled.

    I got one ordered too. Got confirmation email through then a second email to say waiting to be picked and delivery for tomorrow. Fingers crossed it goes through okay.

    My payment is still pending on amazon pay so I am paranoid, but someone posted a link before the bot did and people are now wondering about a faster channel somewhere (which I have always suspected).

    Got a 3rd email confirming payment authorised (cc) and I can see the amount taken off my card. Won’t relax until I get confirmation of dispatch though.

    Same here, can't believe we missed out, must not have refreshed quickly enough. I'm getting sick of it now.
