RTX MX 3060 - for those who remember Geforce MX 4
Scalpers don't tend to use their gpu for months before they sell it.
Not really. I mean I'm in this situation and I dont feel like I'm a scalper....I define a scalper in GPU context as those people buying up cards they dont want to use themselves to sell at MASSIVE profit. i.e. 50-100% markup. Pure comodity trading.
I dont think folks like me trying to get a 3080 to use, PC enthusiasts, with pre-orders from PLE, who managed to snipe a card from another store in between and kept the PLE pre-order, are really 'scalpers'.
But happy to concede that selling a card then for a profit because the market is so fucked can be seen as 'scalping'. But I think it's a little harsh....
I could sell my months old used PS5 for a profit today... but I won't.
Your own personal code of ethics is your own, do what you want
I wouldnt really call that 'scalping' if you actually used it for a few months then sold it it for for a small profit.
What are your temperatures like?
If you're drawing 450W, surely be able to achieve higher than 12k Port Royal... as it's not impacted by your 3rd gen CPU.
The 3080 is really quite different to previous generations and that's not the best way to overclock them.
What's your max core clock?
Give the following a go:
Core: Custom Curve. Set your core to peak at 2100Mhz at 950mv with flat after that
If that works, raise to 2150Mhz at the same voltage and try again. If not, raise the voltage bit by bit.
It's really a fine balancing act of staying within power envelope and feeding the card just enough voltage to make it stable.
Sorry GTX770, seems as though you will go around for another year my friend
Evga XC3 Ultra, apparently in stock, $1,449: https://cplonline.com.au/evga-gefor...oling-argb-led-metal-backplate-hdmi-dpx3.html
Order placed XD
Doh . You havent been following the ozbargain thread..
Its been listed there since yesterday..
the fact it hasnt been ozbargained already (ie out of stock) is indicative of non existent stock controls..
good luck on getting your money back from that retailer.. given their chequered reputation..
Just kidding XD
Lots of info here and at overclock.net, hopefully my Galax 3080 SG can oc well with a 370w bios.
Finally got my Heatkiller block and 5800x installed. Booting tonight hopefully.
893mv 1950mhz should work. If that crashes up the mV by one bin or drop the Mhz by one bin
Interesting, never knew about this voltage curve till now. I did look into it and its typically for undervolting?
I did have a go (with your suggestion) and havent seen any difference. +60Mhz is stable but +75mhz crashes 3dmark to desktop.
Also, i did a successful test at default settings; look at the PerfCap reason (circled) - this normal?
Looks nice and tidy , what brand radiators are those? I don't usually see many nickel looking ones used.
Looks normal; there are multiple reasons for PerfCap, the different colours represent the reasons. Grey = idle, other colours will refer to "Power", "Thermal" or "Voltage".
That is 1 sexy rig
What do you mean when you say +60Mhz? The custom core clock/voltage curve entirely replaces the core clock slider (i.e. it will just say 'Curve' instead of a number), so there shouldn't be any +60Mhz.
Should look like this:

Hmm, i did get it to plot like the screenshot on the far right, however i dont remember seeing "Curve" in the Core Clock.
Also, how did u unlock Core Voltage in Afterburner, mines greyed out?
I have to do that part in EVGA's Precision X1.
By the way, thanks for your efforts, i really appreciate it!
