Maybe they’ll include a certificate in our boxes for outstanding (ish) patience 🤔🤣

Thanks, the boys PC became the priority over last couple of weeks, can’t wait to see his face again it’s another @SpyderTracks inspires build, he should get his name out on some of these builds 😂

Let’s hope we are enjoying our machines over the festive period, Xmas eve delivery would be very nice indeed 👍🤣

if you're still waiting for the strix, the jumps won't help you until january/february sadly, that's when MAYBE they get a delivery. Not a nice thing to hear, but I was in the same boat

Yep I jumped ship after a phone call from PCS advising that it would be highly unlikely they will get any major deliveries of Strix until end of January at earliest more likely into February.....broke me heart that did lol

Even after moving to a standard 3080 over 3 weeks ago, I still have no idea who I'm getting my PC, and with lockdown coming after xmas, I'm guessing if they don't get it out today (2 days for me as in backwater) then I have no idea when I'll get it.

Was hopeful yesterday after Tove said it was waiting on a change of item due to stock issues, so changed that within a couple of hours of his email as it was causing the wait as everything else was there, still no build email, but clutching at the fact some have had the build, test and dispatched in one lump

The STRIX cards are expected in February, and apparently that’s being optimistic now.
I would be up for going for random 3080 but dont like the fact its random can see why they cant tell you what it would be as there sourcing it when and where they can was going for strix card but will wait till end of February to see if the fabled unicorn that is the 3080 20gb arrives

Does anyone know what the impact to build time/delivery would be upgrading from 3080 strix to 3090 strix? Appreciate both are on preorder but if it saves me a couple months wait time the cost increase is somewhat more agreeable personally.

Both 3080 and 3090 STRIX variants are having really bad supply issues.

For anyone who is getting a build with the NZXT H511 MID-TOWER CASE and a 3080/3090. Here are two screenshots of different games giving different thermals.

My case has the following spec:

Processor (CPU)Intel® Core™ i9 Ten-Core Processor i9-10900K (3.7GHz) 20MB Cache
MotherboardASUS® TUF Z490-PLUS GAMING WI-FI (LGA1200, USB 3.2, CrossFireX) - ARGB Ready
Memory (RAM)32GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 3200MHz (2 x 16GB)
Graphics Card24GB NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3090 ZOTAC TRINITY - HDMI, DP
Power SupplyCORSAIR 850W RM SERIES™ MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET
Thermal Paste
ARCTIC MX-4 EXTREME THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY COMPOUND
Extra Case Fans2x 120mm Thermaltake TOUGHFAN 12 Case Fans
Processor CoolingCorsair H100x Hydro Cooler w/ PCS Ultra Quiet Fans

Thermals will also vary depending on your room temp but shouldn't differ too much.

I think regular 3090s are much more readily available than 3080s. Unless it's for something like specialist video editing, I would find it difficult to justify the extra cost. For gaming only, the extra cost did not seem like good value for me.

I don't have a reliable way of sourcing a 3080 externally and don't trust my luck. (I also don't have the money to really just go willy-nilly) so I'll be waiting as patiently as I can. I have a 1070 TI so I'm not super hard-up. But I would like to struggle less, and my artistic endeavours suffer atm quite a bit.

How do you amend your order to remove the graphics card? Every time I try it says I’m due no money back but it should be £684 back

After choosing Amend Order
Go to your graphics card option.
Scroll to the very bottom, and select.
"None, I already have a graphics card"

ALSO:

Scan has shown that they have 3 makes of 3090 In stock for those interested in purchasing a Card separately.
