:) A good power supply is always worth the extra $.
Very true and when you consider the cost of the system itself a little extra for a quality power supply is a no brainer to me. I also feed them with a AVR equipped APC battery backup unit for extra protection.

I finally managed to snag an RX 6900 XT, still looking to catch a 5950X or 5900X in stock somewhere. This shortage is insane, hopefully I'll luck up by the time I'm able to get a waterblock for the 6900, I don't want to tear down the loop twice. Ended up with an XFX Merc 319 Black.

The Enermax isn't misleading, it just has six 30A 12V rails.

Why don't you just run one rail to each connector? Somehow I missed the last page of the topic.

Interesting that with independent rails you're still seeing shutdowns. You wouldn't think that's the case.

Yep, I got banned the other day for following the rules. Literally. Others were breaking the rules and I got banned because there was more of them while only one of me. Oh well. I guess they changed the rules now so that if anyone doesn't like your price for even old gear, they'll ban you for it. With the prices of new GPU's so high, it affects the old GPU market as well. Just how it is.
I was banned for being shocked crossfire became a moderators. Was amazing not a negative comment just shocked and then perm banned hahha.

Figures I might as well take advantage of high prices while I can. I put my 1070 SC on ebay at it's already over 300 with 3 days left. I think I paid $80 for it a couple years ago. Maybe I can use some of that money to put towards a 3070 if I can find it, even if the price may be inflated.

Slightly off topic, but I don't have the OG box and manuals, what's the best practices for shipping bare video cards? I don't have any anti static bags laying around.

Lots of bubble wrap, peanuts, etc. around one of those.

Honestly I think its the OPC logic that's doing it as monsters like ours didn't exist when it was designed.

Fellas I need to report back in on my power problem. Seems that right after I reported last time my EVGA Nu Audio card up and died on me and right after it was removed from my system the power issue suddenly stopped too! :eek:

I tried every benchmark I have and it never shutdown not once so now I'm inclined to believe that the sound card was the culprit all along. However, I intend to keep the new ps when it gets here next week and put this one away as a spare. :)

The older cases with front drive bays can have trouble fitting these cards (except some of the really huge cases, like the CM Stacker I used to have). Most newer cases just have empty space there and should be fine. The 3090 model I got is thinner than the FE but very long, like 13-14", and wouldn't fit if there were drive bays there.

Wow, I just realized that I can sell my old GeForce 1060 6 GB card on eBay for about $300 now.

I think that I spent about that much for it NEW 4 years ago. Insanity! That seems like an awfully high price for an old mid-range graphics card, especially considering that it can only mine about $3 of Ethereum in a day. Considering that the 3 GB model (which can't mine ETH anymore) goes for half that price, I'd imagine that's what people are buying them for.

We're just slowly moving back towards a point where a single computer would take up an entire room :p
I went from a full tower Lian Li PC-A70S to a Lian Li Lancool II Mesh RBG and having seen their new V3000+ I will promptly move to that (3x 420mm + 1x 360mm Rads) as I miss the huge cavernous space in a case. So yea, went smaller but going bigger again soon :laughing:.

I just sold my EVGA 1070 for $450 on Ebay. I paid about $90 for it a couple years ago.

I'm wanting to move in the opposite direction. I'm thinking of piping to some external rads in the corner of my office, and downsizing from my Core X9 to a nice small mid tower. The case is huge and pretty easy to work in, but damn is it huge.

I went smaller too. The big cases were nice back in the day but take up a lot of space and are harder to transport. My Corsair 500D fits nicely on the floor with a TV hanging over it. The 1000D variant of it may be the biggest case around these days if you want a big one.
