    I had the page up for a good 3-4mins, said 'in stock' in the online section but kept erroring out when adding it to cart. Ah well, will stock with my FTW3 order for now!

    Pretty amazing that this is still the kind of thing we're saying when we're (checks) almost 4 months since launch :(

    Grats. It’s worth the wait IMO. Especially for that price.

    So..asking for a friend lol

    The 3090.. the recommended PSU seems to be a 750w, but is that a "safe" recommendation or an absolute minimum? I have no way of telling how much power the various USB peripherals drawl (along with two spinny disk drives) and currently running a Ryzen 7.

    if you can afford a 3090 buy a better power supply to go with it.

    but a solid 750w single rail 12v PSU will be fine

    Basically this, if you're considering a $3000 gpu (dubbed the stupid product of 2020) The time to skimp out isnt on the psu.

    750w may be fine, unless you've got a whole bunch of hard drives, fans, a power hungry cpu etc.

    Pretty sure that 750w recommendation is just for a generic pc build

    Honestly, for a 3090 i wouldn't feel comfortable with anything under a 1000w PSU.

    A 3090 can draw 500w+ on it's own. Add another 300w on for a beefy CPU and other components and you're at 800w.

    If you can afford $3k on a graphics card, you can afford $300 on a good PSU.

    Just installed a Bykski Water block on my AORUS 3080 XTREME at 2100 MHz, this is my first custom water cool setup. Temps playing MS Flight Sim 2020 on 4k ultra dropped to 55c from 70c. Still a work in progress with a few things to tidy up, will do some more testing later.

    Oh what! Did you order from EK direct? I can't wait to get my FTW3 into the loop. I was hoping to get the block from PLE sometime this month.

    Hello any suggestions in where to get the cheapest but most available 3080 is?
    Harvey Norman have the galax 3080 on preorder for $1299, should I try my luck and see if it arrives promptly?

    Just saw on the ekwb website new products they are launching. They are going to have new active waterblock back plates which sounds interesting.

    After owning a 3080 and seeing the heat they push out, if I can get s 3080ti when they release I'd like to try one of those with with water cooling both sides. Wonder if it will help much.

    011D external cooling unit also looks interesting if you have that case and need it.

    Heard bad things about about Harvey Norman e.g no eta's etc so dont think good chance to get one from the. Best bet seems to be check reddit/discord and F5 websites/fs section often in hope's to snag one if it pops up.

    Those two criteria are incongruent. The lower priced 3080s, priced at ~$1300 have not been in stock since launch. Look at all the various retailers who publish their RTX 30 series wait times you'll see people who have ordered and are waiting since September for stock allocation. The only 3080s to come in stock momentarily are the ones going for $1500-1600: GB Gaming OC/Vision/Aorus Master; MSI Gaming Trio/Suprim, etc.

    Nice. My 3090 Bykski Xtreme Water Block is on the way.

    How did you go with Thermal Pad that comes with Bykski? I heard that their quality is not that good so I managed to grab Thermal Grizzy Thermal Pads.

    Also did you put thermal pads on all Capacitor? On their manual they did not point out to put thermal pad on some capacitor.
