    I think that's a fab idea (no pun intended). To take a holiday somewhere awesome, when conditions allow, knowing that you'll slso be able to bring a present like that back for yourself.

    I would suggest that, if possible, get the shop to show you the card working in a PC before they box it up in front of you. It would be aweful to find it's dead on arrival.

    The OCUK guys here should be able to give you the address of their OC Vietnam branch ;)

    Everyone is bitching about the small miners with maybe 5 to 10 GFX cards. The real problem is the huge multimillion pound setups with 1000's of cards in huge warehouses who make money renting processing time.
    They have the budget to and actually are employing ex-intel,nvidia,amd employees.

    These companies wont want to use dedicated mining cards because once the bubble bursts, and it one day will, then they are left with a useless card. Use a gfx they can always bounce it on ebay to some unsuspecting customer.

    Is a new card that might be replacing the Gaming X Trio (???)

    - It's a bit lighter and has a vented aluminium backplate to replace the graphene one.
    - It's got a slightly higher clockspeed
    - it's got 370W powerlimit vs the 340W limit on the X model

    (There is also a "plus" model to possibly replace the non-X variant, with similar characteristics as above.)

    UK gets way less cards, brexit I'll assume, they have to come through the EU. Caseking gets stock relatively frequently, could have bought half a dozen already, but they no longer ship to the UK.

    They have had some good deals, perhaps not so much now. Remember to subtract 20% VAT, well not now due to cancellation of UK shipping.

    I haven't had an email from OcUK since 24/12/20. My 3080 is in ocuk depot but stuck due to brexit as I'm in Ireland. Any idea where we stand at the moment?

    Im not sure whats gonna happen to peoples cards that already shipped or is at their warehouse but try give the customer service forum a message with your delivery number and they might be able to convert it to DHL, not 100% sure on that, I was able to get mine changed over but thats because my card hasn't shipped.

    I didn't get a delivery number, I didn't get anything since a queue update on 24/12 saying I was 4th in the queue. I only know they have my card as I've been following the stock updates on here and I know they received 5 cards when I was 4th

    I feel for you all, I built a new system in November which cost £2k whithout a graphics card and ordered the card from a prehistoric retailer late November. Got it delivered early January and it's fantastic, how I got it crud only knows. but reading this thread daily I can only feel the pain and anguish you guys are going through. 2020/21 is a complete S*** S*** for components. I've always used OCUK for all my parts in the past, my new rig replaced my last from OCUK which served me unchecked for the last 9 years. None of this is their fault, their only crime is trying to serve their customers, and let down by their distributors. To get some clarity, I'm in the battery sector, an order we placed last July is only due to arrive this coming April, that's how f***** shipments from China are right now, and an order placed placed in November that arrived last week spent two weeks sailing in circles off Felixstowe at 2kn an hour, wating to berth.

    @ScottiB @Gibbo

    Can we please get some clarification of the situation regarding Irish orders? There has been one customer in this thread who paid OC directly, was able to have their VAT refunded, their order went out for delivery with DHL, they were charged additional fees at Irish customs and ultimately received their order. Another customer paid with Amazon Pay and has requested through customer service to have their delivery switched from DPD to DHL. I'm not sure about any other Irish customers, but I have received no email from OC regarding my order since 08/01/2021 and no queue update since 24/12/2021.

    Do I need to contact customer service to change my delivery to DHL?

    Are OC still working on resolving issues with DPD, thereby requiring no input from the customer?

    If so, will customs charges be applied to all Irish deliveries or is there still a possibility these charges will be avoided?

    For customers whose order have already been shipped and are being held by DPD, is a solution for them any closer?

    Thanks.
