    My ultra worked on my 750W power supply but my overclocking stability improved when I upgraded to 1000W

    It will work just fine if you don't push the card to 400w+. The sweetspot seems around 270-330 unless you want to push every frame out of it.

    If you were wondering "does a 3080 STRIX fit into a Define Mini C?"

    Yes... Yes it does... Just... :D

    Open hardware is always the way to go.

    I try and support companies who embrace it.

    Damn that monitor sounds nice. I always buy Dell screens. My last monitor purchase was 2015 and freesync hadn't been around long.
    Really nice calibrated 1440 panel with great colour but 60hz. (2715-HC)

    Something like a monitor, which people tend to keep for years in most cases, locking yourself in is madness I think.

    i'm surprised there's a lack of news about any of the AIB cards with preinstalled waterblocks like the EVGA HydroCopper and Aorus Waterforce... Patiently waiting for these so I can compare the pricing vs buying the card & block separately

    Rofl, carded without the parcel :lol: I've actually had that happen before, also had them dropping a parcel at the LPO without even attempting delivery.

    Be a nice surprise if I had it Wednesday, but I doubt it, worst case scenario would be Monday week.....I'm hoping by the latest it will be next Friday :thumbup:

    I was thinking of hydroing my XC3 Ultra. Not sure if that will help in pushing clocks higher though? Or it's just a keep card cooler and quiter thing

    yeah you'd think it'd be pretty easy to bin the top tier cards when you only have like 15 cards been sent out world wide.

    So they had like a couple hundred codes available to redeem worldwide? Seems as there has been such a shortage of cards being delivered/available? :rolleyes: That is a joke they are saying they have already run out of codes.

    Reading through the fine print here at the bottom of the EVGA WDL promotion page doesn't actually state Australia is eligible for a game code.

    Honestly, I don't care as much about the game as I should, but just another example of a shitshow of a launch.

    Did you received the email with blank code?

    I received the email from Asus says my

    event registration has been completed. You code is:

    Which does not include any code. So I send the email to Asus marketing team but no reply yet

    when i got an email from TechSwich last week, confirming my colorful ultra OC 3080 was due to land 26/10/20, they also mentioned the watchdogs code was still claimable.

    Will wait and see.

    If I can't redeem watchdogs when I get home to my pc, it will be the first disappointment of this launch :lol:

    Evatech emailed me the code the day I got the card, ran out of time to redeem though, no mention of while stocks last though.
