Sadly at this time we do not have a good way to estimate new stock on these cards. Our stores get them in periodically and the best way to currently get a card is visit your local store. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Farmeunit ✭ December 2020 Don't know a way to estimate stock?  It's 2020.  You get a certain number in, it goes into a computer.  You sell one, it comes out of total.  It's not that hard. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin December 2020 Apologies, but at this time it is difficult due to the high demand for these items. We are normally sold out within minutes of receiving these items. In many cases, customers are waiting outside of our stores for us to open so that they can check to see if we have received new shipments of products. Hopefully, we'll start to see inventory levels normalize and we'll be able to offer reservations in the future.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 255 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The card has two power supply connectors, a 8 pin and a 6 pin (sata I think?). I only have the connector for the 8 pin and the card turns on and lights up but doesn’t run and the fans don’t spin. Do I need the second cable and if so what type of cable. I don’t have anything that connects the 6 pin to the PSU and I’m lost here. Also the cpu will flicker on start up and I just recently lost windows on my memory so I’m wondering if the power supply is faulty. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin November 2020 Hello @Tpmorphing If your video card has an 8-pin and 6-pin connector, both would be required to power your GPU. A power supply with at least 650 Watts is recommended for RTX 3070s. Most often PSU with 650+ watts will have a 6-pin and 8-pin power connector. I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by the CPU flickering when you start the system. If you've lost data on your hard drive, that could be hard drive failure or data corruption. We'd need to test your system a bit more. Once we have your system reaching POST, we can look into your hard drive concerns. 😊 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The associate looked up the RTX 3070 and confirmed it will be available on Sept 24. However, everything I see online shows that 10/24 is for the 3090 release, with the 3070 still showing sometime in Oct. Has anyone heard anything similar on the 3070? It’ll suck having to push my build out another month but will do it if I need to. Thanks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Enamelized Va ✭ September 2020 @PC_Pilot According to the information that Nvidia put out the release dates are as follows: "Nvidia Ampere RTX 30-series release date The flagship Nvidia RTX 3080 is being launched first, on September 17, with the Titan-eqsue RTX 3090 coming later on September 24. The most affordable of the three new Ampere GPUs, the RTX 3070 is slated for launch in October" Hope this might help you a little.

We thought it would be a great idea to give you the results of a few benchmarks, so you could know what kind of performance to expect if you purchase an RTX 3070. We chose several titles that have built-in benchmarks so that if you have the game, you’re able to run the benchmarks on your current system and see the difference in performance for yourself. Our Bench Our Recommendation Benchmarks Conclusion Our Bench We went with the Maingear Vybe, which has a Ryzen 3900X, 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory, and of course, the RTX 3070!  We chose a build with a lot of headroom on the CPU and RAM to avoid any performance bottlenecks. We really wanted to show off the 3070 performance. However, as long as you have a current or one generation previous CPU, you should not see any CPU bottlenecks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 Recommendations The RTX 3070 is a powerful GPU that can be paired with many existing systems for an amazing boost in performance! There are a few things that you'll want to know before you choose your parts. You'll want to make sure that you have a PSU with 650 Watts or more. Make sure that your PSU has the proper power connectors for your new GPU. This will change from model to model; however, in most cases, if you have at least an 8-pin and 6-pin connector, you're covered. We'd also recommend you pair it with a current-generation CPU, such as the AMD 5000 Series or Intel 10th Gen. While you won't see major bottlenecks with previous generation CPU (Intel 9th Gen | AMD 3000 Series), the most recent processors have made great strides in their performance that outpace previous generations greatly. For more of our build recommendations, check out our How to Choose Parts for Your Customer PC Build article. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 Benchmarks For our testing of the new 3070, we used the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus. As I mentioned earlier, we ran it through several in-game benchmarks. For each resolution, we ran the test multiple times. We’re showing the average result, as it would be what you could most likely expect to see typically. The MSI Ventus was a solid performer with very low cooler noise, even under a heavy load. We did not change any of the default settings for the GPU. We wanted to give you the best example of what you could expect if you have no experience with overclocking or adjusting any GPU performance settings. We chose several recent titles and some that were a bit older to show the performance across a variety of games that you may own or consider playing. If you think of a game with a built-in benchmark that we should add to our list, let us know what you’d like to see in future discussions! We're using MSI Afterburner benchmark utility along with the in-game benchmarks for consistent metrics across multiple titles. In all the titles below, we maxed the settings wherever possible, excluding motion blur. Borderlands 3 is a fairly modern title with demanding graphics and all settings on Badass. Since this was the first title we benchmarked, I was thoroughly impressed with the 3070 from the start. Frametimes were 22.6ms at 4k, 13.0ms at 1440p, and 9.9ms at 1080p. Higher refresh rates are important to me, especially in racing sims and competitive games. It's impressive to know that you can expect 124fps at 4k in F1 2020! Frametimes were 8.0ms at 4k, 5.8ms at 1440p, and 5.5ms at 1080p. Hitman 2 was a bit of an anomaly here. We repeated the benchmark multiple times and had the same 1% Low in our testing. This could be attributed to drivers, perhaps a CPU bottleneck, or perhaps caused by IO's in-house engine. We're not certain. However, it was consistent in our benchmark results. Your results may vary. Frametimes were 20.9ms at 4k, 21.0ms at 1440p, and 21.1ms at 1080p. Horizon Zero Dawn is the most recent release tile that we benchmarked. Its visuals and performance were impressive, especially in such an expansive benchmark with a wide perspective. If a benchmark ever made me want to play a game... this is it! Frametimes were 19.1ms at 4k, 14.0ms at 1440p, and 7.3ms at 1080p. Civilization is a game where smooth frames matter most, in my opinion. Because of the games scrolling and panning nature, you're more likely to notice performance drops and stutters. Here the frame times and 1% lows are crucial. We were pleased to see that the 1% lows were still very playable, and even at 4k did not drop below 60fps. Frametimes were 8.9ms at 4k, 6.8ms at 1440p, and 6.5ms at 1080p. Rainbow Six Siege is an Esports title optimized for high framerates and low frame times. Here every frame counts, and frame times are the difference between a win or a loss. The 3070 absolutely powers through with astonishing scores. Frametimes were 5.2ms at 4k, 3.2ms at 1440p, and 3.0ms at 1080p. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 edited July 2021 Conclusion First impressions from the RTX 3070 are great. We used the same 3070 in our 5600X Review and Benchmarks. Its performance is quite impressive, especially for its price. Its strong performance could easily be paired with a mid to high-end CPU of your choice and offer the performance you see in the benchmarks above.

The splitter you're mentioning 2x 6+2pin should work to supply GPU with the needed power. However, Nvidia does recommend a 750 Watt PSU for the 3070. It's possible that the 3070 may trip the power draw protection. If this happens it will turn off the system.

They may be able to provide an idea of when they receive shipments. To add on to this FAQ answer, I have seen some store locations post a sheet out front when they do not have cards at or before their specified raffle time.

Likewise, we expected Ampere to deliver a meaningful gain in specifications and, by extension, performance compared to Turing. Most people did not anticipate that NVIDIA would shatter pricing expectations for the better, starting with the GeForce RTX 3070 for $499. Looking at the spec sheet and balancing it against the asking price, the GeForce RTX 3070 is poised to be one of the most popular graphics cards in years. That is not to say it is a cheap upgrade. However, on paper, it compares favorably to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which debuted at $999 two years ago (and $1,199 for the Founders Edition model). And it is well ahead of the GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Super, both of which started at $699 when they came out. Here's a quick breakdown of the pertinent vitals: GeForce RTX 3070: 5,888 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,730MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4,352 CUDA cores, 11GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 352-bit bus, 1,545MHz boost clock,  GeForce RTX 2080 Super: 3,072 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (15.5Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,815MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2080: 2,944 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,710MHz boost clock The most important metric in those comparisons is the number of CUDA cores because they do most of the heavy lifting in 3D tasks, namely gaming (the intended task for these cards). Compared to the GeForce RTX 2080, NVIDIA doubled the number of CUDA cores in the GeForce RTX 3070, and the disparity between it and the Super variant is nearly double. What about the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti? It has a bit more memory and a wider memory bus, but fewer CUDA cores and a slower boost clock. We will have to wait for reviews (including our own) to objectively compare gaming performance between the $499 part and last generation's $999 card, but according to NVIDIA,  the GeForce RTX 2070 is simply the faster card. That's not hard to believe, based on the specifications alone. The only real question is, how much faster? Besides having more CUDA cores, the GeForce RTX 3070 will also benefit from Ampere's architecture improvements versus Turing (NVIDIA claims Ampere delivers a 1.9X performance per watt improvement over Turing). The kicker is the price, though. Even if the GeForce RTX 3070 proves to be only moderately faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, it will be a highly desirable card because of the cost. You could even make that argument if the two cards were tied in performance (which is unlikely to be the case). It would be like if NVIDIA had slashed the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti price in half before the new cards arrived. Such a move would have driven up demand immensely because, in the world of GPUs, you just don't get flagship performance for half a grand. The specs and performance potential gets even more eye-popping when comparing the GeForce RTX 3070 to the GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2070 Super. Have a look: GeForce RTX 3070: 5,888 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,730MHz boost clock GeForce RTX 2070 Super: 2,560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,770MHz boost clock,  GeForce RTX 2070: 2,304 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps), 256-bit bus, 1,620MHz boost clock Normally the disparity in specifications would render this an unfair comparison. In this case, the GeForce RTX 2070 debuted at $599, and the GeForce RTX 2070 Super launched at $499, the same price as the GeForce RTX 3070. So it's completely valid to pit them against one another. According to NVIDIA, the GeForce RTX 3070 is, on average, 60 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2070. Yet it costs $100 less than that card did at launch. Based on what we already know about NVIDIA's Turing lineup, we expect the GeForce RTX 3070 will be a beast in 1440p gaming and handle 4K resolution gaming in most titles (just maybe not always at 60 fps, depending on the game). As far as framerates go, all we have to go on at the moment is NVIDIA's own data. In Borderlands, NVIDIA claims the GeForce RTX 3070 tops 80 fps at 1440p, compared to about 50 fps for last generation's GeForce RTX 2070. And in a game like Control, with RTX enabled (meaning ray tracing and DLSS are engaged), NVIDIA has the GeForce RTX 3070 breaching the 100 fps mark at 1440p, versus around 70 fps for the GeForce RTX 2070. Those are significant gains. Folks, this is a dream scenario. The cynics among us could have envisioned the kind of performance gains, NVIDIA is claiming, with beefier specifications and an improved GPU architecture, but at a much higher price than $499. If the reviews hold up to NVIDIA's performance claims, the GeForce RTX 3070 could end up being the hottest selling graphics card this fall. It also presents a compelling reason to stick with PC gaming rather than jumping on board a next-generation console if you have to pick between one or the other.

I would think Microcenter would have enough pull to demand a more reasonable NDA period. These AIBs are running things like the Wild West now and the consumers need somebody to stand up to them and say enough! If the AIBs are afraid to tell us how much they are going to charge then maybe they are gouging too much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rishiMukherjee ✭ June 2021 I bought a 3080 pre-build from micro center last weekend. Can I get the 3080 Ti instead and return 3080?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2021 edited June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 We can't return individual components out of pre-builts, however if the early reviews that are going up are anything to go buy, you're really not losing much performance anyway. The price increase of a 3080ti vs a 3080 is definitely not worth the minor performance increase in comparison. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33109#Comment_33109 I think the NDAs are mostly dictated by NVIDIA, but I don't really know how that whole process works. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33111#Comment_33111 Unfortunately not. We are not able to take components that were sold in a pre-built unit as exchanges for upgrade components. If you are looking to upgrade the RTX 3080, you can definitely explore purchasing a 3080 Ti to perform that upgrade though I would strongly recommend waiting for benchmarks to see if the performance difference warrants the price of the upgrade. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 2021 What are the chances of getting a 3070ti off of best buy right after release? My mom was gonna let me use her credit card and I was gonna stay up and try and get one for the computer I just built from parts at micro center.

One good thing for you to know is that I sent my friend to Microcenter a few minutes ago to scope it out. There are only 5 people in line right now.

This morning they had 72 cards and I was #43 in line. I think going the afternoon before is a good target. Definitely don't expect to show up after Midnight and get a card. By Midnight there were more than 72 on the list. Also... the difference in price was big. The people at the end had to either pay $2,000 or leave. The first 40 or so paid $1,400 for almost the same quality card. I ended up paying 80 more because of my place in line but I can live with that.

I've never heard of places charging more the later in line you are, but if I need to get to the Weston, Illinois location store at 4pm the day before I am fine with that. If there is a voucher or a way to make sure they keep my place in line I can camp outside in a lawn chair or wait in my car for a full day. I have no clue if Best Buy is going to do a 3070 Ti in-store launch like they did the 3080 Ti (which sucks because they did it at a store in Madison where I live and I had no clue about it, though $1,200 for a GPU is still ridiculous when I don't need basically a 3090).

I don't know how many people will be waiting in the afternoon here because of how hot it is outside (I spoke to someone at the Westmont store who redirected me to this website who said he spoke to another MC store that had people already lining up at 1pm TODAY), but at night I could see people starting to show up and wait in line. The problem is 2 1/2 hour drive just to see how many people are already waiting is kind of a nightmare. I guess I'll figure it out at the last minute whether I want to go or try the EVGA elite membership queue system in the morning (friend said he did this for the 3080 Ti and got an email for two of their products that same day by signing up early enough, so that might be a reasonable alternative). If there's anyone in the WI or Illinois area wanting to wait with me at a MC location add me on Discord Hrethgir#7798, it's easier to go with someone else rather than alone. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GrimeCreeper ✭ June 2021 Anybody have a general idea on when to arrive to the store in order to secure a 3070 ti? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook IOERSdj ✭ June 2021 I've heard something about a raffle online queue is this true? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Titan363 ✭ June 2021 This has got to be the most ridiculous money grabbing way to handle these sales. Not to mention totally contradictory to the social distancing stance of the previous year. And it is completely beyond me how anyone can consider this in any notion to be an" increase in fairness", or a" promotion of safe shopping" ---------------" We’re using vouchers to increase fairness and promote a safe shopping experience to our customers while shopping for products with limited product/availability."---------------. The safest and most fair way would have been to allow a week long online and instore registry and the then use a random number generator to draw a lottery. No risk of violence, robbery, or accidental injuries. No super stressed out hurry up/no wait for 12 hours. I mean I am assuming each store would be receiving no more than 100 cards. The whole deal sucks. It's not going to be any better anytime soon. Remember Atari burying 700,000 , Atari 2600's and game cartridge's in the desert, it was thought at the time that it was to create a shortage drive the price back up . More likely was for tax loss purposes. The claims that the up cost is do to corvid shortages is 40% bullshit. Some of it is and that shortage has been caught up by this point, as much as they want it to be anyway. Consider that most of the pacific and Asian countries are big players in that arena, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, and of course China. And most of the labor is automated with 40-60% of the labor being human and at the back end of production. As for the cards, you have the recent crypto currency expansion eating up the High middle end cards, every greedy company that touches them has increased their profit margins substantially, I dont mean covering their increased cost, that is always passed along, most every hand that has touched the products has taken their increased cost, and doubled that and passed it along. And don't forget Trump. Add 25% to the cost of each card that enters USA from China, and surprise, CHINA DOESN'T PAY ANY OF THAT, the receiver does, dont believe me, just look at your Ebay distributers, each has a customs fees disclaimer. OK, rant over, I hope all of you that goes the distance gets a great reward with an awesome new card. I'm mad at Micro Center right now, but you know if they could get every one of us a new card and even at a discount, they for sure would. I'm sure of it. I have never had a bad experience with even one of their employees. Every one I've ever dealt with has been just genuinely awesome and wanting to " Go a head, and MAKE MY DAY". lol Be careful out their guys and gals. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MJG26 ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Next time, hand out numbers, have an employee stay over to hand them out and pay them extra to do so.

They're all talking about reselling the cards, so that's cool 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheFamousChrisA ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Titan363, the best part is that I tried calling the Westmont, Illinois store and the guy really sounded like he didn't want to talk to me at all. I asked if they were doing Vouchers the night before so people didn't have to wait out in the heat overnight for 15 hours and he just directed me to this website and was like "I don't know what we're doing, maybe." I was very polite but in my head thinking "great, so I could drive 2 1/2 hours because there's no MC in Wisconsin (thanks MC for having two stores within 30 mins of each other in Chicago but not a single one near Madison or Milwaukee) show up and there could be a line of 50 people already or there could be nobody because guy won't give me any information, just wants to get me off the phone, and won't tell me if it's worth it to try by making it easier with vouchers or chalk outlines or something. I'm old I have to pee every few hours now", so yeah I ended up not going simply based on that phone call and don't know if I'll ever end up going to Micro Center just with how far away it is. People always tell me how great this store chain is but every interaction I have as someone not living near one just feels like a huge pain and not worth the hassle. I am 100% sure I will never get a graphics card from MC because they are too far away and people who live 20 minutes away can get there in line in the morning so much easier. I'm sure their employees are great kind people, but had I gone last night I would've needed to leave by at least 3-4pm in the afternoon since it's over a 2 hour drive away.. and I would still be waiting there right now because it's only 6:21am and they open at 10am. The guy on the phone telling me people had been lining up at 1pm at other MC stores he spoke to plus the 92+ degree heat outside discouraged me from sitting overnight in front of their store for 15+ hours for a guaranteed non-scalped gpu. I hope whoever did it for one is able to get one at least. Ok, rant is also over. "Next time, hand out numbers, have an employee stay over to hand them out and pay them extra to do so. Manager would be best. 1 through whatever. Hell, use those Deli tickets. Store opens, call in 15 people at a time, go in order. Someone with a ticket doesn't show to get their voucher? Skip em. Their loss. Prevents people trying to sneak through or skip, and keeps things a little more orderly. Group of people showed up before us, there's like twice as many people within that group now. They're all talking about reselling the cards, so that's cool" Holy sh**, I would be absolutely furious at these money grubbers and MC if that happened after waiting all night in the humid conditions here in WI/Illinois. That is the nicest thing I will say right now when it comes to that, scalpers can absolutely burn. Not sure I would let that sh** fly if they were skipping in line. People will get pissy if it's a line for something smaller/different, let alone gpu's you can't get anywhere. Tell anyone who wasn't there with the group first to F off and go to the back, don't let them screw you over. It's frustrating because I have heard from friends that some MC's do overnight vouchers if you show up to the store before they close the night before, then you can show up the next morning and be good instead of waiting outside all damn night like an idiot, but seems this is dependent on each store and from what I've read here some stores are very disorganized and have no system whatosever, it's just a free for all. Say what you will about Gamestop I do miss their midnight releases, having some employees there overnight/late at night to release (met some nice people for the WoW Cataclysm launch back in the day) was fun, and then you weren't waiting until 10am to get something new. Edit: Someone posted a picture they had at a micro center store's front door.. QR codes for people to scan on their phone for vouchers between 9-9:30am. Not sure which store this was but it's completely random, so anyone there between that time can scan the QR code and it doesn't matter if you've been waiting all night, it's a lottery system. People at home with their phones can scan the QR code on their phone and not even need to be there! Complete and utter BS system. Wish stores near me would just say what system they are going to use instead of praying it's not this BS. (Turns out it was in Denver) If I had been waiting since 7pm the previous night for the store to open 10am the next day, and then they did a random RNG voucher system for people who showed up the next morning, I would lose my mind. No clue what systems they use in the Illinois area. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Buildo_Fraggins "North Tustin" ✭ June 2021 edited June 2021 Tustin patron here from the 3070 ti launch raffle and I’m here to report that me and everybody I asked who had Verizon as their cell provider never received a single text message.

For example, on other retailers, I can buy a ASUS TUF RTX 3070ti for $599 but at Micro Center, the price is $949. Any explanation for why? I thought that Micro Center sold cards at MSRP. Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 2021 @JwPibunny just chiming in. The MSRP cost depends on the card. A regular RTX 3070 TI will go for $599, but a RTX 3070 TI Gaming X Trio Triple Fan 8GB card's MSRP will go for $959. It depends on which version of the 3070 TI that is being sold. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JwPibunny ✭ June 2021 @TSTDavey, thank you. But, the ASUS TUF RTX 3070ti that I was looking at costs $599 but on Micro Center’s website is listed as $949. I also noticed other large price raises above the price of that card specifically of other RTX 3000 series cards. Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

I live like 30 minutes away from a micro center, but I've never spent the time to go and camp out for a new card for my system even though I wanted one. But one day during a run for something at 7 pm, I ran past micro center and saw at least 10 people lined up and sitting in big nice and comfortable chairs that recline so you can sleep on them, which must have been a HUGE pain to bring and they were basically the same chairs, so I assume they are friends. I walked in microcenter to see what was being sold and I was informed that it was a 3070. I didn't camp out, but it is really suspicious that these microcenter employees INSIST that they have no clue what and when cards come in, but then there is a group of 10 plus people sitting outside at 7 PM on the most comfortable chairs. Do not try to tell me that they do this every night until they got one because they would not have brought these big chairs and went 14 hours before hand if they did not know. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Brian1001 ✭ April 2021 I might get banned from the community for saying this but I don't care, I genuinely think some employees get bribed to tell people when cards drop even when they are not suppose to. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JohnMagee Columbus, Ohio Store Associate June 2021 Hey @Brian1001 I don't think you will get banned. However, customers do try to attempt to do anything they can to get their hands on these cards. We never take anything. We also all hope that this situation gets better for everyone. We want to get back to piecing together machines that people want. The joy of just creating fun builds for customers is somewhat lost right now. When this chip shortage is over, we hope to see you so we can put something super rad together for you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 8K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 67 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 105 New Members 256 Consumer Tech 70 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 101 Software 8 Audio/Visual 29 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 4 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 70 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 79 Off Topic 15 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 252 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 74 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 34 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 29 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

We've put together a powerful and sleek build to help generate some inspiration for your own build.... or you can just use this one! (Image Courtesy: NVIDIA) Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Vermeer 3.8GHz 8-Core AM4 If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Alternate: Intel Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake - Intel's new i7 processor, offering comparable performance from a different company. Note: the selected motherboard for this build is not compatible with an Intel processor. Motherboard: ASUS B550M-PLUS (WiFi) TUF Gaming AMD AM4 microATX Motherboard The plot twist of our build: we're building a microATX PC! Offering all the power of a full-size rig, just shrunk down to a much smaller size. And with that in mind, we want to keep all our components to a minimum, so we made sure the ASUS B550M-PLUS has onboard WiFi, so if you're not hooked up via ethernet you can still access the internet without adding anything else to the build. Alternate: ASUS B560M-PLUS TUF Gaming WiFi Intel LGA 1200 microATX Motherboard - To complement the alternative Intel processor, we picked out an incredibly similar Intel motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 8GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. Processor Cooling: NZXT Kraken M22 120mm RGB Water Cooling Kit Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Normally we recommend a hybrid of SSDs and HDDs for new builds, but with space such a premium in micro ATX builds, we're going pure M.2. The Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe will offer all the speed you could ever want in a hard drive, all in a sleek form factor that will fit snugly into your motherboard. Alternative: Inland Platinum 4TB SSD M.2 NVMe - 1TB not going to cut it? Shoot up to 4TB for even more game space! Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GT 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply I always recommend modular power supplies - the ability to remove cables you don't need in your build is paramount to creating a clean and efficient build. And it's never more important than in a microATX build when space is so much more limited and errant cables can ruin your airflow. EVGA's SuperNOVA 750 GT delivers enough power with an 80 Plus Gold rating to keep your PC running efficiently and is fully modular to keep it clean. Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Case: Corsair Crystal 280X RGB Tempered Glass microATX Mini-Tower MicroATX builds require a lot of research to ensure that all parts will fit into the case. For the build we've constructed here, the Corsair Crystal 280X is the case that will give us the space we need, with a little bit of breathing room for airflow and any adjustments that might need to be made. And RGB! Alternate: Whatever case that can fit your components! - Cases are perhaps the most subjective part of any PC build, taking into account both space and personal taste. So head to your local Micro Center, bring a tape measure, and check out our floor models! The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=e7d683c1-cd98-4875-8663-8a03888bd05f 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments MageTank ✭ June 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/8706/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-ti-build-guide I've read over this guide a few times now and pardon my ignorance but I am not entirely sure I understand who this is targeted towards. The title of the thread has the word "guide" in it, but the information provided in the subject matter is so minimal and what is provided is questionable at times. Let's look at a few examples of questionable information: If you're building with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, you're going to want a processor to match that power, and AMD's Ryzen 7 5800 X is a stellar pairing. Delivering high-powered processing and overclocking potential without breaking the bank - just like the 3070 Ti. Calling out the 5800X for its "overclocking potential" is like recommending a Honda Civic for its racing potential. Overclockers are going to be disappointed, as will drivers of Honda Civics (no matter the size of the spoilers and how short you cut the exhaust). While it is true Ryzen processors are unlocked and can technically be overclocked, their "overclocking potential" is actually quite limited. You are dealing with a hard 142W PPT limit on the socket and an added EDC current limit that cannot be bypassed on ambient cooling. Those looking to squeeze out extra performance on Ryzen CPU's would be better off undervolting and utilizing PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and letting AMD's automatic tuning handle the rest with the added power overhead from the aforementioned undervolting. It seems silly to recommend a component for its "high-powered processing" and "overclocking potential" without actually explaining what makes the processor a great pick beyond marketing buzzwords. Features such as: Significantly higher cache sizes than their competition Higher cores/thread count at a lower price point Comparable IPC (Instructions Per Clock) performance in non-AVX instruction sets Just a few things that could easily be mentioned that realistically impact performance and would mean more on paper than just saying something along the lines of "it's fast and can overclock so we picked it". The centerpiece of our build is, of course, the new ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, featuring stellar ray-tracing capabilities, solid 1440p, 144hz gaming performance, and NVIDIA's suite of gaming tools. The 3070 Ti delivers 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames that the 1070 Ti could deliver. In other words: it's the card for our build. 1.5x the performance of the 2070 SUPER at what? This feels like someone saw a marketing slide from a first party (Nvidia) and rolled with it instead of actually providing examples of areas in which the RTX 3070 Ti outperforms the RTX 2070 Super by 1.5x. Are we talking pure rasterization, or are we talking Raytracing performance? Given the limited number of raytracing titles, it's extremely important to clarify this here. At the very least, use the words "up to" to cover yourself. Blanket statements like these lead to disappointment when reality sets in and it doesn't offer 1.5x the performance of the previous 2070 Super. https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3070-ti-founders-edition In the review above, you'll notice that while some games offer that 1.5x performance boost over the RTX 2070 Super FE, some (like Far Cry 5) only offered a 15% performance boost in 1080p performance. In fact, of all of the recent AAA games they tested across the 3 most common resolutions (1080p, 1440p, 4K), we only saw 4 instances of the 3070 Ti achieving that 1.5x performance boost over the 2070 super. Those games were Assassins Creed Odyssey at 4K, F1 2020 at 1440p and 4K, and Total War: Warhammer II at 4k. That's 4 instances out of 21 testing methodologies. Sadly, so few people benchmark the 1070 Ti so I can't really verify if the claims of "2x the performance" are true, but it would still be wise to include "up to" just to be safe... Sure, you could go with a standard air cooler for your processor. But when you're building in a microATX case, space is a premium. Plus, you should really treat that fancy Ryzen 7 nice with a sweet AIO. Hence the NZXT Kraken M22. Featuring a single fan, it'll keep your processor cooler than a standard air cooler and take up less space in the process. Perfect for compact builds! This might be the most questionable claim in this "guide". Water cooling is still bound to the same laws of thermodynamics as air cooling. It's not going sub-ambient. If you want to claim it's more efficient for heat exchange to use water cooling then sure, there might be some agreeance here, but to blanketly state that a 120mm AIO will out-perform standard air coolers? That's just misinformation with no evidence to back it up. The benefits of water over air is thermal mass, being able to handle a higher thermal load and resulting in a lower temperature as a result. A 120mm lacks this distinct advantage as the thermal mass is no greater than that of your typical air coolers... Breaking this one up is going to be a bit difficult for several reasons. The Kraken M22 is among one of the lowest performing 120mm AIO's. Maybe only really beating Cooler Master's pump designs. While the pump-in-rad design is interesting, it does not aid in providing better thermals. 120mm radiators lack the thermal mass to be considered objectively better than mid-range air coolers. For the asking price of $85, this AIO gets absolutely destroyed by high-end air coolers for just $4 more such as the Phanteks PH-TC14PE which can be found readily available for $90. Lower end air coolers such as the Noctua NH-U9S can be found for as low as $70, will fit in the chassis and can be outfitted with 2 RGB fans to meet the aesthetic of this build while offering comparable performance to the M22. Here it is with 2 fans beating Cooler Masters 240mm AIO and running only 6C hotter than Corsair's 240mm AIO: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/noctua-nh-d9l-and-nh-u9s-cpu-cooler-review,9.html (The CPU in this review was tested under a 114W thermal load, the 5800X averages a 95W thermal load) When factoring in thermal performance of coolers, one can't just weigh thermal transfer between air vs water, but also the thermal transfer between the CPU die to the IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) and from the IHS to the CPU cooler. Ryzen's unique MCM (Multi-Chip Module) design has the CPU cores offset to a corner of the CPU substrate, meaning a water coolers jetplate and fin array won't be centered on the CPU cores, resulting in very inefficient cooling. We've seen this already with AIO's and custom water blocks not specifically designed for Ryzen's chiplet layout and the M22 is no exception. The claim that AIO's take up less space than air coolers is a bit subjective. They make air coolers that are designed to sit horizontally across the CPU socket rather than vertically. Notable examples would be the Cryorig C7, be quiet! Dark Rock TF and Noctua NH-L9a. These do not obstruct any DIMM slots or require any obstructive tubing to be visible while maintaining a low profile no thicker than a a 120mm AIO + fan combo. Seriously though, recommendations for thermal solutions shouldn't be taken lightly when giving people advice on systems, especially when one references "overclocking potential" earlier in the guide. That's just a recipe for disaster. RAM: Crucial Ballistix RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL16 Dual Channel 16GB of RAM is more than enough to handle pretty much anything you could put this little powerhouse through, but we've left two slots open if you decide you need to double your RAM to 32GB. And that splash of RGB will add a nice bit of style to the build. Alternate: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 RAM - Worried that 16GB of RAM isn't going to cut it? This'll double that to 32GB and leave space for an additional 32 more gigs of RAM to be added. I was impressed by the decision to choose 3600mhz memory for this review given how reliant AMD's Infinity Fabric is on memory speed, but I was disappointed to see the alternative recommendation deviate from this without explaining this loss in performance. There is zero mention of the compromise on frequency in exchange for capacity, nor any mention of the change from single rank to dual rank DIMM's and what that will do for memory training and manual overclocking should one choose to undertake that endeavor. We referenced the "overclocking potential" of the processor, and the memory controller is part of the processor after all. Dual rank DIMM's are harder to overclock, that is important to keep in mind. It's also important with Ryzen platforms in particular to be conscious of the memory IC's of the RAM you are recommending as some are far more compatible out of the box than others, especially true if one plans to overclock or populate all DIMM slots with dual rank DIMM's. There is also zero mentions of timings of any kind or the importance of lower latency memory in general. I guess I'd just like to see this fleshed out a bit more to explain the thought process behind why certain components such as the memory are recommended that extend beyond "I think this is more than you'll need, and also RGB!". That's just shallow on the surface and doesn't help me understand the thought process behind why I'd want these. Guides need less subjectivity and more objectivity, you feel me? Alternate: Anything Modular - rather than pick out a specific power supply alternative, I'll just recommend anything with sufficient power and fully modular. Keep your case clean! Come on... It's hard to view this as a "guide" yet completely gloss over how one should go about finding the right power supply. At least link to resources about how to find the right size PSU, whether it be from the over-estimates provided by Nvidia or another source of knowledge with facts to back up their claims. Anything is better than "Just go with something modular". What about looking for important features like OCP (Over-Current Protection), OVP (Over-Voltage Protection), UVLO (Under Voltage Lockout), Thermal Monitoring/Throttling & RCP (Reverse-Connection Protection) to name a few. Features of arguably the most important component in a system that will protect the other components in a system from failing in the event something goes awry. If someone is reading a build "guide" (I am assuming the target audience is people that need assistance with choosing parts), at least explain the different types of PSU form factors and which one is compatible with the chassis you recommended. The last thing you want is someone buying a Flex ATX PSU for an ATX chassis, that wouldn't end well. I think that covers most of my issues with this guide. If I had any more feedback to provide, it would be to make it less formulaic and less like a marketing ad for the components themselves. Lean in to the technical side and give the reader something to walk away with other than the same guide over & over recommending RGB after RGB for the sake of RGB. To me, this looks no different than the build "guides" posted daily on pcpartpicker or pcgamer. In fact, the structure and writing style is almost identical to the point where it's difficult to tell the content apart. What better way to differentiate yourself and demonstrate a unique identity by actually diving into the hardware and educating your audience while guiding them on the components to consider for their builds. 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.
