    I thought OCUK said that all the codes had already been allocated to the individual orders and that if you had it listed on your order page it means you were one of the lucky 1000?
    You ordering at that time should mean that you get one because it's on my account and I ordered at 1520ish

    I asked this in sales channel on OC's Discord the other day and yes it is order dispatch date not order placed. Great isn't it.

    Assuming that is true that's something Gibbo should be announcing on the stock update post

    It is about to become somewhat academic I guess, as the Watchdog's redemption period ends on Monday and you can only redeem when you have the card installed ...

    And that would involve communicating with us something he deems to be beneath him.

    And yes the redemption period is fast approaching so it is a moot point but still one of principle.

    I scored a second 3080 FE on the most recent drop the other day. Sorry I've not got back to a few messages on here, I've been predisposed let's say. If anyone would like a pack of links to help them get a card, shoot me a message and I'll reply when I can tonight.

    Some Scumbag is selling a EVGA 3080 FFW3 Ultra on the bay of fleas for a buy it now of £350.....which sounds a great deal until you look and find he's charging £999 for postage! what a utter scumbag, wish we could report these people and get there accounts locked.

    You pay ebay fees on P&P too these days so pointless and no need to report.

    Is this not a scalper/bot trap listing?

    I have seen a few just selling a photo also.

    Anyone would be mad to think it was a genuine listing.

    Well, it looks like the ‘OK amount’ of Asus TUF non OC’s turned out to be less than OK (literally). Somewhere between 14 and 32 in fact. According to the (ridiculous) code, an ‘OK amount’ is meant to be around 50.

    What’s going on? Obviously that’s a rhetorical question, as no one that knows reads / posts here. :confused:

    I was 26th, or 25th after a forum-announced cancellation this week, and I've not heard a peep.
