I am interested in getting a RTX 3090 card (has to be Nvidia for AI software) but with the Crashing problem due to decoupling capacitor choice my the manufacture I would like to know which card it is as Zotec come off really bad with no ceramics under the GPU . Palit look better with two banks of ceramics under the GPU. The only other option is to go for the ASUS with all ceramics but this is £100 more expensive.
the capacitor related crashing issue was resolved via drivers weeks ago. but yes, as Tony said, the only way to know for certain is to order a strix, others will be whatever is available first

Just limiting the cards via the driver still leaves the problem that some cards have a small noise margin due to poor decoupling. Capacitor aging could then kill the cards earlier.

I suppose I was pointing out that going for the unbranded could result in you getting a card with bad decoupling if PCS purchasing are just grabbing what they can. Only having premium branded cards makes the cost between the two quite large. If I could I would order with NOT Zotec that would be a help.
