    ^^I suspect the 3090’s will need a poofteenth more than the 3080’s though. But will have a good play to see what we can tweak from it. I am all for efficient gigahurtz:)

    There is a PNY / Galax 2 connector RTX3090 bios out there already with a 390W power limit. It is marked as unverified on techpowerup. It might be safer because its designed for your exact PCB.

    Cheers Mate, I will do a bit of google-fu once the thing arrives, still awaiting the EK WB stuff to ship, won't flash the card before I dump it under water. BUt it allows me time to hunt some info down, appreciate your comments ;)

    Probably get a 4k monitor (I've got a PS5 as well that I might transfer from the TV) but right now 4k pc gaming isn't a requirement. If the 3060ti going to last 3 years then I'd lean towards saving the $$

    TBH at 4K you'd want a 3070 or 3080.

    Anything other than 4K gaming for me seems old skool these days.

    Inno3D RTX 3090 iChill x4, showed up today along with the other parts, NO CASE, it's still in transport, so no testing today.

    Yeah, that'd be going straight back to where it came from.

    I did flick a email off to PCCGear and Inno3D, see what they both say, will give it a test tomorrow because that will also be a question they ask, "Have you tested it yet".

    Dear god, I wouldn't be putting that near anything of value. Don't go testing it. Demand better. It's a $2400 card ffs. It's not a $40 china card from ebay you're willing to take a punt on.

    I just pre-ordered one of these from PLE - did you get it from them, and if so how long did it take?

    I had the 3080 version and it looked the same with the caps on back like that.
    Ended up having to RMA it after about a week of use.
    That being said a lof of those caps are connected via the pads/tracks and it doesn't really matter that they have joined during the reflow process.

    I quickly hunted through some reviews for that card and they all look similar to that (though earlier samples using 1 extra poscap and only 1 mlcc array). It looks messy but also kinda by design, to group the mlcc caps together on pads.

    Honestly I think people are over-reacting and the card is more than likely fine. Even on more premium asus and gigabyte cards you will see some wonky caps.

    Does PLE take full payment up front on the preorder?

    I still have to wait for PCCGear to get back to me, they make the final call on sending it back.
    Funny enough I've never checked the rest of my video cards, never bothered, just saw these on the photo.

    That actually looks to be done on purpose. Its got a pattern to it, so someone probably forgot to run a track joining the two caps together, and the factories fix was to do that. Not 100% certain though, its just an assumption as there's no way they can work on bulk orders if components are moving everywhere (and they're the big ones, not the tiny ones)

    Personally, if it works and comes with the warranty, I wouldn't worry about it, it will be fine and I'd most likely assume any replacement would be the same.

    Man, you lot are too kind to these manufacturers. lol
    It's a 2 and a half thousand dollar card.... I'd be more worried about what else aint right with quality control like that.
