Finally got round to getting pictures up of my new PC with a 3080 ASUS STRIX OC from PCS.
Mine arrived on a pallet and some of the pics below show how well everything was packaged.

Excuse the flannels in one pic, just in case I sprung a leak when I first turned it on😄

Anyone still waiting on your 3080 builds it will be well worth the wait. Stick in there and you won't be disappointed.

I wouldn’t ever purchase a liquid series myself (too lazy to maintain it) but I must admit... that system looks the business 👍

That looks sexy!
I noticed you got the original box for the graphics card. Does anyone know if PCS include this for all desktop builds? It would be handy for potentially reselling it if upgrading just the graphics card down the line.

If you ask them I'm sure they'll supply you with what packaging they're able to.

Remember, most parts are OEM which often don't come with boxes like on retail packaging.

I got the box as it has the rest of the card parts are in there, casing, fans etc.

When you open the box you would think its the whole card just looking at it.

I think they do a pre built 3080 strix now with the EK water block (not sure if PCS have any) so I wouldnt of had all these spare parts, bit of a waste really

I know it's fustrating, but hang in there so at least you can hold on to price you paid for in Nov 1st. Just to give an example the 6800xt gpu shot up from £636 to £810 in a matter of few weeks. I'm in the same boat at 34 days. You never know if pricing post brexit may get weird for the worst come 2021. Currently the 30 series gpu if you manage to bag one from an online retailer are at an inflated price and may stay that way for the next month or so.
I'm still early days too (14 working days) but I was wondering why the system I paid for on 30 Nov had shot up £100+ recently when playing with the build a custom PC on the site. So it's bittersweet, but glad there seems to be a reason behind it, I just thought stuff like fluctuating RAM prices might've attributed to that rise.

Prices are going through the roof due to the supply issues, and that's only going to get worse over the next few months.

Looks very nice, At least this proves PCS are actually getting some Rog Strix’s haha. I’ve ordered one in my build nearly on 70 days pre-production time now

That is a fantastic looking machine. My envy is painful. I am seriously tempted to cancel my order, save up some more money and buy a liquid cooled machine in a year's time. By which time they might have fixed the bugs in Cyberpunk too.

But I am 31 days in and hopefully over halfway so will stick in.

My next machine is definitely going to be liquid.

Have you had a standard 3080 the whole time?
I had strix at the beginning, but swapped to standard after Ghosthud pointed out the issues with Asus supply line, I had 2 people from PCS confirm (in addition to Ghosthud) that this will not affect my queue position

66 working days in and get email this morning saying my order is ready to move but item out of stock with no eta :oops:

@SpyderTracks so they have a 1tb Samsung 970 evo plus in stock, is that an ok replacement for a 512gb adata sx6000 pro?

EDIT ; Just went for the 970 as they said they could have the PC with me by Xmas......fingers crossed (y)

I have the 512GB Samsung 980 on order, but they keep talking about processor and the graphic card.

going to make a call now but not a happy bunny at all.
