    I'm already questioning that :cry:. Nvidia have not done a good job although at least they exposed the temperature sensor that led us to the problem. My worry is if they want to do a similar thing in the future they will just not expose the relevant temperature sensor to users and then we'll all wonder why our cards are running loud.

    Does anyone know the longest cable length (Display Port) that I could use with my 3080 and Dell S2721DGF to ensure I get no issues with full 165Hz?

    I've bought replacement pads but I'm not overly concerned. I might replace them when I'm bored one day...

    Should I swap my 3070 FE and £175 for an Asus Rog Strix 3070? :D

    I don't have any experience with Ampere, nor high refresh, but I do have quite a lot of experience in commercial installations for digital signage.
    Based on that, 5m on (decent quality) copper cables is usually the reliable limit, but anything over that I'd look at fibre-optic based cables.
    Just had a look on a well known online purveyor of everything and you can get a 10m for £85, 20m for £90 - reviews on that indicate [email protected] (so I can't see why 165Hz would be a problem) works fine (on the 20m).
    If you have trouble with those, shouldn't be too much hassle to return it!

    Hope that helps :)

    There seems to be a lot of variables when it comes to cable length and higher res/refresh rate - some people seem to be happily able to do 10m no problem others hit a wall at 2-3m, etc.

    That's very helpful, I didn't think about fibre options. Thanks very much for the info and thanks also @Rroff

    It's not worth the money.

    Why would you pay £175 for a card that won`t perform that much better? Plus the Founders Editions are very good quality this time round.

    Lowkey I do feel like it will just make my PC build more expensive. I wanted to go for a white lian li o11 mini build and just felt the the Asus Rog Strix 3070 white may suit the build better rather than the the 3070 FE? What do you think



    I just feel the Asus Strix White may complement my build more.

    I agree, the FE is a excellent card imo. Not worth it at all.

    I agree too. But white aesthetics tho :( feel a bit stupid considering it but I think it would look really nice…

    Hell no, lol.
    I get the aesthetic point. I guess only you can answer how much that is worth to you.

    If you're going for a white Lian Li case and doing a white build then only you can justify if it's worth it or not. I'd have a look at the case gallery and do some googling to see if you can find some builds that are similar to what you're looking for. Personally I think the FE will suit it of your using mainly white components as it will break it up a bit without it being too much white.
