Congrats all the younglings getting their 3080 orders early. With crypto on the rise again, I wouldn't count on availability being a constant so don't hang about :)

I've had issues with USB ports on my AMD build, and apparently this is a common thing. Be sure to update the bios and if you still have issues, plug in stuff after the machine has started. Also, disabling fast start-up helped.

I will say that the Fractal Define 7 quiet case, as well as being INSANELY heavy is INSANELY quiet. My laptop's fan is literally louder, it's crazy. Very pleased overall.

Related to this, make sure you contact PCS for any BIOS updates as updating without their approval could void your warranty as per terms and conditions:

Any tampering, repair or modification by unauthorised personnel voids the warranty.

hey all,
been lurking for a little and was just wondering if someone has some information about the graphics card situation currently.
My build is currently 8 days pre-prod with the 3080, which was in stock when i ordered, but seems to be out of stock now with a restock date of 15/09. I don't mind waiting till then but i'm wondering if they ever get stock earlier or later than estimated or whether to switch to a 3070 ti as it seems to be in stock for now.

You can see above the average wait times, it's roughly 35 working days at the moment which is just under 2 months. But even cards that are in stock will have a wait of just over a month just because demand is so high and there are queues for all of them.

Ohhhh we used to DREAM of 35 working days,! Woulda' been a palace to us. We used to have to wait over a 'undred days in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woken up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! 35 working days? Luxury

Seen the 3080 lost the "pre-order" tag so I switched from the 3070 to it, i'm 14 working days into pre-production - will that effectively place me at the back of the queue for my build?

Thanks
