    The plan was to go for this:
    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lian...ied-aluminium-full-tower-black-ca-77k-ll.html

    Or maybe this:
    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lian...ower-case-black-tempered-glass-ca-77d-ll.html

    Not normally one for RGB stuff but it's my first PC in about 7 years and I really like the build quality of the Lian Li cases.

    Still guilty though so I'm going to sell my PS5 and VR next week right enough and try streaming games to the couch from the PC via a nVidia Shield Pro.

    Edit: Didn't mean to quote myself. That's quite narcissistic, isn't it. :/

    Good, you now have good card to play with.

    I did undervolt and like yours it's help to bring the temps down to around 90c on average but vram still hit 96c ~ 98c sometimes.

    I did have an issue while changing pads, I couldn't get the LED cable off, at the end I turned the pcb over, put a cloth between pcb and heatsink to finish the job.:p

    I have order picked confirmed at 17:30 today for the 3070. Really excited. Originally was only willing to spend up to a 3060Ti (~£400 budget). But it seems like the longer you wait the more you're willing to compromise.

    Fingers crossed for us! I've even called the store to see if I can pick it up in person today but they said Nvidia doesn't allow them to change order shipping methods
