    Sorry for TC but that study was conducted in controlled conditions. The author of the paper this morning (3AW - Neil Mitchell program) even said it was unlikely to be applicable to real life scenarios as lots of factors can alter that length. Also it was judged by if the virus was recoverable after that period - which may not present an infective dose (which is currently unknown).

    MLCC mod? For Real? Shunt mods are easy, MLCC mod needs a very delicate hand indeed.

    But for real I hope you're just playing with us and enjoying 3000mhz uber boost clocks behind our backs.

    lololol

    Just toying with y'all

    I'll have a go when I've had a chance to have a play with the clocks and put it under water, which I can do once the proper Trinity block arrives from EK. (Still selling that reference block yo). At the moment the clocks are like 1400mhz in Furmark and it's sitting on the power limit the whole time so wouldn't be much point doing the MLCC til I figure out what's it like

    Nice. I was actually nervous for you. It is a risk we know that we are taking but you don't really want to see it happen. I have never had the stones to go that far on $1500 worth of gear.

    1400mhz in Furmark? What? Isn't that the base clock? Mine sits around 1900 at default just with the power limit maxed. +100 on the core has it spending a lot of time above 2GHz.

    Just got my 3080 TUF OC from Scorptec, ordered on the 24th so pretty surprised... The same day I finally put to rest my 2700k and put new rig together (10850k Z490E) and threw my 970 into it while waiting on this.

    So... a small upgrade :D

    That's frigging awesome dude, anyone who didn't order on the night receiving their cards already is great news.

    hmm, maybe wont get another 3080 now, since updating latest drivers, detecs my dell 32" as not gsync compatible, eventhough been using gsync (with some blackscreening issues), for the past two weeks. not happy jan.

    EDIT: Sorry team green, did a reboot and windows decided it needed to "update and restart'

    after reboot gsync is now staying enabled. weird!

    And people get upset when you import and don't support Australian retailers. :eek: Our distributors and retailers are too busy eating their own young to worry about things like customer service.... or reputation.

    I have a laptop on order with one of those said retailers (that rhymes with E.L.P), when I ordered (and payed $2.5k in full) on 24th Sep the ETA for stock was the next Monday, 28th Sep. Then it became the 5th Oct (no update provided), then it became 23 Oct (no update provided). When I politely inquire as to why the ETA has changed from 2 business days to almost a month I get stupid comments about it being 'unicorn poop' and having to just 'order and pray'. You know who doesn't give customers bullshit run-arounds and actually delivers on time? Amazon, NewEgg, B&H, Best Buy etc etc. As it turns out I'm not actually in a hurry in this case so I can afford to wait it out, but they couldn't give a crap if I was or not.

    Not me. You reap what you sow. It isn't a one person fault though. Everyone along the way wants to make money. In terms of price, I think the retailers are kind of screwed by the distributors in most cases. If you buy ten GPU's for, say, AUD200 each just so you can gett the one 3080 that a customer actually wants then you now have to find some way to recover the AUD2000 that you had to squeeze out of your arse just to make that one sale. A lot of the time that one 3080 is for a long time, loyal customer so you do wear it to a point but then you are still stuck with the other GPU's. If you are a smaller shop that doesn't do pre-builds and makes everything to order it is even worse.

    Frankly, fucked if I would go into PC retail today.

    I'm not disagreeing with you, but I think it goes deeper. There's been a race to the bottom that started in the early 2000s.

    I used to run a small business IT consulting firm, mostly specialising in verticals (learned a bit of the early accounting and document management systems, and would do that, but also sign people up to ISPs, and fix broken desktops) and would keep maybe about 10-15k of stock for the most common parts on hand. When work was quiet, I set up a side brand to sell PCs and parts on line.

    Back in those days, there were fewer brands and no big discounters. If you bought from the disties, at worst, you'd be getting it the same price as someone selling it on sale. If you wanted to sell a 1Gb stick of ram, it was a 1Gb stick of RAM. Maybe if the buyer was discerning, they'd ask if it was Kingston or some cheap Chinese product

    Now, buyers want specific part numbers. Not just 16Gb of RAM, but a specific brand, a specific timing and a specific colour. And they want it in 3 days. Tomorrow if they pay express. A smaller retailer just can't keep that much stock, and unless you're buying it by the pallet, you get it cheaper from one of the majors. So you effectively become a drop shipper. You have to take money because the disti won't take restocks without fees, and then if the disiti screws you, you look bad.

    Like you, I am glad I am out of the game, and wouldn't go back into it if someone handed me the keys to the store.
