    Agreed, all the FE cards sell out so there's no need to open it up yet. The fact people might want an upgrade, or a card for a second machine etc doesn't change the fact that they are still too easy to flip. MAYBE you could make a case for having the 3090/3080ti opened up.

    I want a 3080, but I used to own a 3090 so I accept I may need to wait a while.

    Is there a warranty registration process on the nvidia site? Can no longer find it.

    Nope. Just keep your invoice from the retailer. That is all that is needed to submit a warranty claim within the 3 year warranty period.

    3080ti FE arrived today from a well known competitor who had a bunch in stock on Monday. Very happy!

    Honestly an awesome card. Got mine when they first launched and have been chewing through games with no effort at 4K paired with a 5900x. Much more manageable than a 3090, that was just a bit oversized for my tastes.

    I've experienced coil whine for the first time ever. Thankfully it was only when the fps was unlimited in a menu. Ok when capped at 165fps to match my monitor.

    I've not really had a chance to put it to the test yet! Can't wait though.

    3090 received today, opened and promptly stuffed back into its box for a return.

    The fins next to the upper fan have corrosion under the paint coating so the finish is coming off along the edges, revealing dusty white bare metal. Looks a right mess.

    RMA process started. Pretty disappointed.

    Oh no. Well rumours are they have cards in the warehouse for immediate replacement.

    I should check mine. I just plugged it right in. Corrosion starts small and spreads.

    You got a photo?

    Got a few photos, will figure out how to post.

    To be fair to the retailer. Spoke to them at 6.30pm, took maybe 5 mins to get through to speak to a human.

    RMA accepted. Collection already booked for tomorrow.see how long it takes for them to send a replacement….
    Not their fault as it is a sealed box, pretty poor qc from nvidia, spotted the paint flaking within 10 seconds of opening the box.

    Ok I lie, 10 seconds was just staring, thinking wowzers it’s huge. 12 seconds later it was “that doesn’t look right”
