    Thanks Gibbs.
    Didn't realize there were so many models. Was just looking to see if my Zotac Gaming TwinEdge OC that I got from yourselves back in January from the '3d printer' page had dropped in price much from the £499 I paid at the time. Looks like maybe £30 cheaper, but these are the new LHR models, not that I do mining anyway. I think on balance an extra £30 for 6 months of use ( has it been that long) is pretty good value.

    Have to thank you and OCUK again for taking the trouble to try and get these cards into the hands of gamers.
    Its nice to see that prices may finally be coming down a bit and hope its a trend that continues.

    So, I had an Inno3d non OC on order very early on, then changed it to an OC version and paid the difference quite late on - I think it's safe to say I messed up :D I thought the orders were basically guaranteed pending delivery.

    ...please... not like this.

    If I get an ocuk delivery without haribo, i'm sending it back. I emailed them my surprise/thankfulness many, many years ago when it first happened and should hope it never stops! :)

    Card is as expected noisy without running particularly cool. Performance as expected. Not sure why it's so difficult for Zotac to improve this cooler after all these years.

    What about adjusting the profile? I haven’t tried mine yet it’s still in its box. My plan was to try undervolting it and setting the profile to match. The stock profile isn’t that great supposedly.

    Doesn't help much unfortunately as even at 40-50% they are much noisier. Combination of basic cooler and fan design.

    Bugger. The alternative is a 6600xt which seems much quieter. But a big loss in performance :(

    Living in northern Ireland, OC throwing in a gratis bag of Haribo probably adds 72 pages of customs declarations and a three week wait at the port for the bag of haribo to be cleared by vets because there might be gelatin in the ingredients, as much as I would miss the haribo I would probably consent to not getting them if it speeds things up :p

    I have a question. Shortly after the 3060 LHR cards were released I heard that there was a way to bypass this in the drivers which was "accidentally" leaked. Has this been fixed or are miners still able to use 3060 LHR cards at full capacity?
    Not sure if this is the right thread to ask, I am new to the forum.

    From my understanding there are v1 cards which the driver unlocks (and you need a PCI-e 4 board) and then there's the v2 cards which seem to have a stronger controlled limiter.

    PCI-e 3x16 slot for a 3060 V1 using the leaked Dev driver to work at full hash v2 will not work with dev driver

    It's going to happen as it its very difficult to police... So many new Zotac 3060 Ti listings lately on the bay.
