    They're even baiting you:
    "More RTX 3080 arrived! Super fresh in stock! Hurry up before they are gone! >.<"

    You guys need to stop buying from scalpers. Just get a 3090 if u need a gpu that badly. Aud is like 80 us cents. These 3080s r just rip off

    Ended up replacing the thermal pads on the front of my trinity oc and the vram temps dropped from 110 to 92, didn't do the back ones as they are 3mm ones and I only got a pack of thermalright 2mm from aliexpress.
    Shows how shit the stock stuff is.

    Kot0005 is right though, if you're paying $2300 for a 3080 you might as well yolo a few hundred more at it and get a 3090.
    If they can't bust out the extra hundred they probably shouldn't be buying the uber expensive 3080 anyway.

    I wonder whether people are actually buying at the current price level. It is just too ridiculous.
