    EU is a far bigger land mass so it makes sense that there are more drops there than here.

    Nothing in the UK since 23/9, it’s not unusual for the UK to for 2/3 weeks between drops. It’s is unusual to see no drops at all in 2 weeks in Europe though.

    Couple of tubers posted about this saying nvidia were hitting market with mass wave of cards. This sounds like what they were talking about. The component and shipping issues are real and they will likely dry up somewhat until after xmas I would say.

    Last EU drops were 25th and 27th September, quite large drops too, I would be hoping for a decent UK drop this week or next.

    I was lucky enough to grab a 3070ti in the last drop a couple of weeks ago.

    Originally wanted a 3060ti but when I clicked on the Telegram link immediately after being alerted, it was out of stock.

    Out of curiosity, I clicked on the 3070ti link and it was still showing as available, so managed to add that to my basket and completed the order.

    Wasn't what I wanted and ended up paying a lot more than my original budget but given the current market, I'm not going to complain.

    3060ti is non lhr and 3070ti is LHR that is why the 3060 sold out so quick and the 3070 didn't

    3060Ti price/performance is also much better. There are more buyers in lower end segments. And it has a relatively better cooler.
    And yes, 3060Ti is also the most efficient mining card you can get, but really hope that miners are not the main buyers

    I had a 3080fe that did this. Didn’t give any problems for the 9 months I used it.

    Yeah. I suspect it's probably fine, it certainly is something rubbing somewhere, at first I though it might be the sound of air, but it sounds like it's coming from the centre of the fan. Just need to tune it out. Lol.

    I might waterblock it anyway.

    That makes absolutely zero sense to me! :p

    Just Googled and it Limited Hash Rate and mining related.

    Doesn't bother me and probably served its purpose and allowed me to purchase a GPU
