    So I saw Wahaha asking if anyone has tried the Strix in the T1 - I can't tell if he's hinting at the potential of it actually fitting or not?

    From the card measurements though I feel like it is literally 1-2mm too tall and long, but it's hard to tell where they are measuring from to be sure :/

    I think its going to fit personally. Measurements check out and it has recessed pcie plugs. It wont be easy getting it in. But she'll get in there mate.

    So I think I'm pretty much decided on buying a Zotac RTX 3070 twin edge this week.

    Dual slot and short will make it super easy to build around and let me build virtually anything the case supports.

    I'll likely do some under volting so it's not too loud or hot.

    I bought mine months ago so unsure if it is still the same but - store opens 2am Saturday morning (Check r/FormD for updated times) and remains open until sold out (minutes to hours depending on amount available). Typically ordered for 2-3 month in advance.

    Whoa, I think for my first forray into sff I'll go with something more accessible like the NR200. Pity though, Formd is soooo svelte

    Can vouch for the Nr200. Was a fun case to build in - similar to the ncase M1, but a lot more affordable haha

    Even with a 2-3 month wait you'd still have a built PC before some on here that already have the case :lol:

    Yep still waiting. I also need a good amount of down time before I make the switch. I'm losing a 3tb harddrive so I need to sort out what the hell I'm going todo with that haha.

    Yeah it's not an attractive card, that's for sure.

    I'm not overly sold on the 30-series, I only have a 1440p monitor, my 2080S performs well for the games I play. Was playing Sea of Thieves at 1440p last night, CPU and GPU around 60, 140+ FPS, and coolant in the mid 40s. Pump at 23% and fans at 70%, though I was wearing headphones. Even when I took them off the fan drone wasn't bad.

    EVGA has been on a slow decline when it comes to design haha I loved their 10 series cards...

    I like the Strix card, and the Twin Edge from Zotac is very clean.

    Honestly the FE/Reference cards from both teams are the best looking.

    AMD's reference cooler is a stunner, just a pity about the length.

    I still have my FTW3 1080ti - looks much better then any of the 20s / 30s EVGA. Genuinely have no idea what they were thinking with the clown face on the FTW3 3080s...

    Can anyone who’s gotten their T1 already comment on the shipping to Australia?

    I got my shipping # last week and it was stuck in China for a few days but after it finally did leave China it landed in Texas USA. Is this normal? I would’ve thought it would come straight here and not via USA?
