Community Article NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Build Guide — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › What's Trending NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Build Guide SeanM admin June 2 edited June 3 in What's Trending NVIDIA just released their brand new flagship graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. And if you're looking to pick one up, we've put together a build to help you get the most out of all the power the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti delivers! We've laid out a powerful build with as many white components as we could cram into it, creating a stylish powerhouse worthy of the GeForce 3080 Ti. Processor: Intel Core i9-11900k A flagship graphics card deserves a flagship processor and for our build, that's the i9-11900k. The 11900k is prepared to handle anything you throw at it, from high-end gaming to photo and video editing with power to spare. Alternate: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - AMD's own 9 core processor, delivering comparable specs under the AMD brand. Note: the selected motherboard for this build is not compatible with an AMD processor. Motherboard: Gigabyte Z590 VISION G Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard The Gigabyte Z590 VISION G is closer to a mid-range board than a high-end, but it oozes style. With a mashup of white, silver, and black coloring with a splash of blues and purples, the VISION G is our board for a stylish powerhouse. Plus, it comes equipped with four m.2 slots, multiple PCIe x16 slots, and HD audio. Alternate: ASUS X570-Pro Prime AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard - To complement the alternative AMD processor, we picked out a similarly stylish AMD motherboard, even adding in a splash of RGB. Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VISION Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card The pièce de résistance of our stylish powerhouse is, of course, the brand new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Specifically, Gigabyte's VISION edition which matches flawlessly with our motherboard. The brand new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti delivers 1.5x the speed of the last generation GPUs and brings with it incredible ray tracing technology and DLSS AI Rendering on top of everything else NVIDIA GPUs can do, including NVIDIA Broadcast, and NVIDIA Reflex. Processor Cooling: Corsair iCUE H510i ELITE CAPELLIX360mm RGB Water Cooling Kit - White Whether you're building with an i9 Intel or Ryzen 9 AMD, your processor is going to be giving off a lot of heat. And nothing beats a big water cooler to keep your temperatures low. The Corsair H510i is more than equipped to handle all the heat you can throw at it, and handle it in style with a white radiator and three RGB -infused fans. Alternate: NZXT Kraken Z73 360mm CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ LCD Display - Sure, it might not match the aesthetic of the build, but adding an LCD display onto the pump cap, allowing you to monitor temps just by glancing at your case. Or, you're favorite GIF if you're so inclined. RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 RAM 16GB might not seem like that much RAM for a powerhouse build, but it'll be plenty for most things you want to do with it, including gaming and video editing. But, if you do want more, you'll still have 2 available slots to cram in an additional 16GB of RAM. And did we mention the RGB? 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: 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe (For OS) and Samsung 870 EVO 2TB SSD SATA III & Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 5400 RPM SATA II HDD (For everything else) We're putting incremental hard drives in this monster. You've got your 1TB 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe drive for your OS as well as any other major-use programs, a 2TB 870 EVO SSD for your frequently played games, and a standard 4TB Seagate BarraCuda for every other thing you need on your computer. Tons of storage, ranging from blazing fast to just plain speedy. Alternative: Inland Platinum 4TB SSD M.2 NVMe - 4TB of blazing-fast storage, all on one single M.2 NVMe drive is stellar, but it comes at a price. Power Supply: Corsair RM750 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply 750 watts of power with an 80 Plus Gold rating means your new powerhouse will run smoothly and efficiently. But, perhaps more importantly, it's fully modular, meaning you won't have a bunch of extraneous cables getting in the way of all that glorious white and RGB. 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: Lian Li Lancool II Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower Computer Case - White Ultimately, your case is up to you. We went with the White Liancool II Tempered Glass case for the aesthetic. Easy-open doors on both sides of the case, RGB strips in the front, and tons of room for your big AIO water cooler are exactly what we're looking for. 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!

I hear that they won't be LHR. I kind of want one just so I can recoup my spending by mining when I'm not gaming. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 1 @PetaFajita just chiming in. No information yet on if we'll have the FE models. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Stitchless ✭ June 2 I don't have the any source, but I thought that only Best Buy would carry the founders addition. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2 The thing we really want to know is are the rumors true that the non Founders cards are going to cost $2,000 or more. I think the answer is no, but please let us know tomorrow before we wait all night and end up walking away from an absurdly priced card. I would rather buy from Microcenter than the Big Yellow store but I know they will have founders for $1,199. We deserve to know the price ranges for the cards you will have before we wait all night. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2 Anyone else camping out the Saint Davids location? I'm about an hour away and heading there today after work. Been trying to get a card since last fall and I've given up hope with online drops. Going to roll the dice and camp out overnight. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook aly12 ✭ June 2 As long as RTX3070ti sells for $600 and RTX 3080ti for $1,100. I will buy it other wise I won’t. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 edited June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33078#Comment_33078 NVIDIA has announced that all 3070 ti and 3080 ti cards will be LHR cards. Q) Will NVIDIA include LHR (Low Hash Rate) technology on the RTX 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti? A) Yes, NVIDIA has announced that they will be limiting the Etherium mining performance on the RTX 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti. Here's a link to NVIDIA's press release about the new GPUs https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/rtx-3080-ti-3070-ti-graphics-cards/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook wezlypipz ✭ June 2 Is there any information about prices, Founders MSRP is $1199 according to Best Buy. Is Micro Center going to be charging fair market rate or are they going to be charging MSRP for the third party cards? Also, is there any idea of about how many cards will be available? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33086#Comment_33086 I wish that I had an answer to give you ahead of time! Sadly, the pricing for partner cards is still under NDA, and I don't know the amount that they will cost. I would expect it to be similarly priced, but that is just a guestimate. I'm making this guess based on the cost of the 3090 and the listed price of the FE cards in the article above. Q) How much do the 3080 Ti & 3070 Ti video cards cost? A) Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they’re available. As soon as we're able to share the price, we'll update our site with this information! Please keep a close eye on our website! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33097#Comment_33097 We're expecting to have stock of both the 3080 ti and 3070 ti on their respective launch dates, however, we aren't certain of the specific quantity. If we're able to get a concrete number ahead of launch we'll share that! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Justin_Exploring ✭ June 2 edited June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33105#Comment_33105 By any chance do you know if there will be stock (not expecting you to know quantities of any) of standard 3080s or 3090s on drop day tomorrow as well or just 3080Ti? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin June 2 @Justin_Exploring It's quite possible, but I can't say anything with 100% certainty. We've been getting fairly regular shipments of several GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD at this point. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2 edited June 2 Pricing being under NDA the day before the sale is ridiculous for the AIBs to be dictating. 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 2 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 2 edited June 2 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 2 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 2 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. I don’t think she or anyone else I know would be willing to spent the night in a car or tent outside of micro center. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 2 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33114#Comment_33114 I think you would have to be extremely lucky. 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. Maybe you can go at like 4AM or something and still get one when the 3070ti comes out next week. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TKPJr2009 ✭ June 2 edited June 2 Will you'll be updating us on rather or not you'll will be selling Nvida founders edition RTX 3080ti  tomorrow and RTX 3070ti on June 10th .  I know you'll sold the founders edition RTX 3070 & RTX 3060ti when they released on Release day . But that was the only time you'll had FE stock  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 3 What time do you think I would have to get to micro center for the 3070ti launch. My local micro center is the Brentwood one. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 3 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33118#Comment_33118 We will have a variety of models but we do not have information on specifically which models. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 3 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33133#Comment_33133 Our community staff is not in a specific store, but based on demand, many hours before the store opens but we wouldn't have a way to estimate an exact time to you. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AiHayasaka ✭ June 3 Does anyone who’s been to the Westmont IL store know how early I should go to get a 3070 ti? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dryloch ✭ June 4 edited June 4 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33147#Comment_33147 I went to the one in Duluth GA last night at 7 PM to get a 3080ti. 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. The less you care about the price the later you can go basically. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leesanction ✭ June 6 edited June 6 Anyone care to tell me their experience going to Micro Center in Westburry Ny long Island for the 3080ti launch? Im planning camping out there for the 3070ti launch. Want to see if its worth trying. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Fender007 ✭ June 6 I’m from Los Angeles out in Houston for work. Can anybody share insight about how the launch was for the 3080ti? I would have to miss a half day of work to attempt to buy a card, but if they’re disorganized or anything like the Dallas location 3080ti launch I won’t even bother going there. You guys should YouTube it, I’m surprised people weren’t hurt. They should be doing it like the Ohio location, a list and constantly checking every hour or so to keep it fair and organized. Wow Dallas was the most unprofessional thing I have seen, looked like a scene in a movie. anybody with Houston insight I’d appreciate it thank you 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TheFamousChrisA ✭ June 8 I am curious how much the 3070 Ti will be if they were upcharging the 3080 Ti to almost $2,000 for people later in line. 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). Any insight into how much money to bring and what time to get there the day before? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 8 edited June 8 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33272#Comment_33272 I am sorry, we do not have pricing on yet to release items, and it will vary by model. The price for video cards does not change dependent on where you are in line. The only thing that would dictate the price is the model and kind of video card. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DonNephew1989 riverside ✭ June 9 i want to know if the Micro Center in Tustin CA will get the RTX 3070ti on June 10? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HammerHead444 ✭ June 9 Micro center support says that the 3070 Ti will launch at 10am when the store opens.

The specs of the 3080 Ti puts it closer to the RTX 3090 than the RTX 3080, though with half of the 3090’s VRAM, dropping to 12GBs in the RTX 3080 Ti. This drop-in VRAM doesn’t stop the 3080 Ti from delivering a beast performance in our benchmarks, though! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin June 10 edited June 10 Recommendation and Test Bench We will be using a similar test bench to the one we used for our 11700K Review and Benchmark, For our test bench, we’re using an open-air system with the following specs Intel 11700k ASUS P-Prime Z590 G.Skill Trident Z 32GB Ram ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti ROG Strix Inland Premium 1TB SSD Lian Li Galahad 240mm We have an article if you are interested in another build that features the 3080 Ti as well.  This build is an all white build using the Gigabyte 3080 TI VISION as the center-piece.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin June 10 Benchmarks No changes were made to the 3080 Ti, as we want to provide the most out-of-the-box performance for these benchmarks.  All games were set to their highest graphical settings without motion blur.  MSI Afterburner was used as our benchmarking tool when going through in-game benchmarks.  DLSS was not used for any games.     Hitman 2 is our first game, and we hit a cap at around 135 frames at both 1080p and 1440p due to a CPU Bottleneck.  105 FPS at 4k is more than enough for 4k 60FPS gaming and shows how great this card is for 4k gaming.  The consistent 1% lows at all resolutions are likely caused by the game benchmark or engine. These lows were not visible outside of benchmark transitions. Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.33ms | 1440p; 7.37ms | 4k; 9.51ms Civilization VI is not the most demanding of games and here we can see that we are CPU bottlenecked at all resolutions, even at 4K!  Average FPS sat at an outstanding 188 FPS at all resolutions, with minor differences that are within the margin of error.  The game menus force a 60 FPS cap once the benchmark has ended. This is why we see this incredibly consistent 1% low across all resolutions.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 5.31ms | 1440p; 5.35ms | 4k; 5.26ms Borderlands 3 showed some of the most significant differences between 1080p and 4k in our benchmarks.  However, it is still hitting at least 60 FPS on its 1% low, which is excellent as 4K 60FPS is the target we want to hit when all the settings are set to the highest possible. 1080p 144FPS is also great with all the settings at max as this game can be pretty demanding.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.93ms | 1440p; 8.33ms | 4k; 14.68ms F1 2020 shows us a pretty standard graph when it comes to benchmarking.  FPS goes down in both average and 1% lows while resolution goes up.  With the crazy numbers shown here, we can look at 4k 120-144FPS gaming or even 1080-1440p 240FPS.  This card is a beast, and the big numbers here are proof of its dominance.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 4.02ms | 1440p; 4.31ms | 4k; 5.57ms Horizon Zero Dawn is another game displaying a fairly expected graph when it comes to benchmarking, and one of the more demanding games we benchmarked as well.  Horizon Zero Dawn is a visually immersive and taxing title that the 3080 Ti makes quick work of showing how it can easily handle this game at all resolutions while still managing an impressively high average FPS.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.25ms | 1440p; 7.04ms | 4k; 11.06ms The last benchmark we ran was a game optimized explicitly for ESports; Rainbow 6 Siege.  ESports titles aren’t the most demanding of games as they want to work in as many systems as possible, so it’s common to see FPS in the 300s in these games.  I was surprised to see high 300s and even 400+ FPS at 1080.  It shows the power of the 3080 Ti on titles like these, which is great for the crowd that plays ESports titles at 1080p 300FPS.  1% Lows remain consistent at 1080p and 1440p and go down at 4k, but still remain in the 200s, which is fantastic.    Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 2.44ms | 1440p; 2.59ms | 4k; 3.79ms 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin June 10 edited July 13 Conclusion NVIDIA’s GeForce 3080 Ti is a beast of a GPU that gets to 60FPS at 4k in one of the most demanding games, Borderlands 3, making this card one of the best around.  Its performance within esports titles like Rainbow 6 Siege is nothing to scoff at, pulling an average of 409 FPS.  Those new 1080p 300+Hz monitors can easily be paired for those wanting every frame of advantage in their esports titles.   If you are looking to get yourself a 3080 Ti or any other graphics card from us, please visit our Random Selection Process and FAQ for more information! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin June 11 Looks like a great performing card! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

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 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.

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 9 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 10 I've heard something about a raffle online queue is this true? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Titan363 ✭ June 10 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 10 edited June 10 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 10 edited June 10 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 10 edited June 10 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. Not a confirmation text or a final text message saying all graphics cards have been claimed. Could my phone number have been picked and I never knew? Maybe and that’s the worst part about the possibility that I waited for 3 hours when there was zero actual chance. I will update this post if I receive the message but all cards have sold out for the day about 30 minutes ago and no message. @MicroCenter please address this before the next raffle. P.S. This was the first time I tried getting a graphics card since the 3000 series launched. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CindyH ✭ June 10 I gave up on Microcenter as I have to work during the day and can't be standing out in front of the store all night. I ended up doing the shuffle for six days before I could get a 3070. The downside is it cost me $799 which is way overpriced. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DreadPirateRoberts ✭ June 11 Wait.. Did you give up, or did you get a card? $800 means you got one of the more expensive 3070s, and given the current GPU climate, that's still a fairly decent price. 2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CindyH ✭ June 11 edited June 11 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/33469#Comment_33469 No. I gave up on Microcenter before I got the 3070.

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 16 @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 16 @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.

Well here's the answer. According to sales research, most people who used to own RTX 2060/Ss and new builders are the people who are buying them the most other than scalpers and crypto-miners. This show's that NVIDIA is actually struggling a bit because of AMD's recent cards so they were desperate to sell and they made it very affordable. Leaked prices before the brought them out was $449.99. Not $399.99, like they are. So these are the people they were targeting, budget builders. I hope this mini article was informational to ya'll.

The cards come in each week but in a limited quantity.  Sometimes the store will get like 30 units and once 30 vouchers are passed out, the card are gone. The best way to get one of the cards is to visit the store multiple days a week, especially before it opens. So that you can at least have a change to get a 3060 or 3000 voucher. Beware there are lines each morning at the store.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

NotABear ✭ July 4 edited July 6 in General Discussion I have a gigabyte gaming 3080ti paired with a 3700x at a stable 4.2 GHz. Playing games in 1440p (most recently Hell Let Loose, which yes is poorly optimized) I've been running into low fps around the high 50's to low 70's on some other games like far cry 5. Running 32gb of ram and all games on SSD's. Depending on which game GPU utilization hovers around 80-90% while CPU is not even at 50% utilization. Are there some bios/Nvidia Experience tweaks I can make or is a CPU upgrade in my future? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TS_JosephF admin July 4 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/8841/3080-ti-bottleneck Have you already tried a clean install of the GPU drivers? That is where I would start. Even if your drivers are all up to date, a clean install of the drivers can certainly help. Also, if your CPU does not exceed 50% usage then a CPU upgrade may not be necessary. how do your temps look after playing for a good 30 mins? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook NotABear ✭ July 5 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34137#Comment_34137 Temps are so far in check. Running a front mounted h115i for my intake, but some lack luster exhaust fans that I plan on upgrading soon. CPU hovers around 60 C under gaming load. GPU under load maxes out low 80's, highest I've seen is 85 but nothing past that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin July 5 Hello, The 3080Ti is one of the best cards at the moment and I would be surprised to see it bottlenecked before the processor on most games at this moment. Have you ran any benchmarks to see how you compare to others with the same build? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook NotABear ✭ July 6 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34141#Comment_34141 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ui8etFmOWk&t=160s Since I mentioned Hell Let Loose in my OP. In this video the system specs are almost identical. Only major difference is MOBO, x370 on mine compared to a x570. I wouldn't think that would make a difference at all right? Only other difference is my memory is CL 18 VS. 16. I've read having two different monitors at different resolutiuons can sometimes mess with GPU's? I had a vega 56 card before, so all the Nvidia control panel stuff is a little daunting but I read you can get some pretty nice FPS gains. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 6 I would give a clean install of your video card drivers a try to see if that helps if you have not done that already, here is a step by step guide on how to do this: https://community.microcenter.com/kb/articles/133-how-to-clean-install-video-card-drivers-in-windows-10  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin July 6 I'd definitely recommend starting with the clean install of video card drivers. Especially if you're going from a completely different GPU, it's best to uninstall the old drivers and then install the new drivers fresh. this may cause your system to have some issues with FPS output. Typically multiple monitors will not have an adverse effect on your GPU performance. However, it's possible that you may have some V-Sync settings may be enabled to cap your frame rate to match your monitor's refresh rate. I'm surprised to see that temp loads are peaking at 85. Are you able to see what your Thermal Memory Junction temps are? As @Ian mentioned, it's best to perform a clean install of GPU drivers as this corrects the majority of problems. Let us know if this works for you! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook NotABear ✭ July 7 edited July 7 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34156#Comment_34156 Last night I did a clean install for nvida drivers and just used DDU for my old AMD drivers, so we'll see how gaming performance goes shortly. As for temps the card is still idling at around 60 C with clocks fluctuating between 500-200 MHz, with spikes up to 1700 MHz, same behavior with the memory clock. Not sure how to check Thermal junction temps. Edit: Frames and temps are still consistent, temps are a little lower which is good I suppose. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin July 7 I'd recommend HWinfo https://www.hwinfo.com/download/ It has a more granular sensor listing. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin July 8 @NotABear If your CPU was bottlenecking you, it would be maxed at 100% while playing the game, while the GPU was lower. But it may be taking advantage of all your CPU cores. Your usage looks normal, and this game is poorly optimized and pretty well known for this. I'd try this switch from launch options in Steam: -dx12 -useallavailablecores Last I checked when I was playing this game, this potentially had issues with the Foy map, but it has been a while. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook NotABear ✭ July 9 To anyone following, ordered some Noctua fans and RMA'd my card.

For anybody checking back to this thread, no updates on this unfortunately. Best I can say is it's going to be handled individually by each local store. The only definitive information we have is what's in the FAQ at this point.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook skes ✭ September 2020 well my local microcenter just informed me that they will not be getting their shipment in of 3080's and cancelled the launch event. said to check online for availability then go to store if they have them and they dont know when 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joejccva71 ✭ September 2020 skes said: well my local microcenter just informed me that they will not be getting their shipment in of 3080's and cancelled the launch event. said to check online for availability then go to store if they have them and they dont know when Which store is that? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook skes ✭ September 2020 marietta Ga 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook skes ✭ September 2020 "Hi, Unfortunately, we just got word from our shipping team that we will not be receiving our shipment of the 3080 cards on 9/17/2020 as planned. We will not be doing a voucher system as planned any longer. Please do not line up in front of the store as we will be unable to do a special launch event.

This is going to be mostly a paper launch, the fact places like EVGA wont be ready to launch the FTW3 until "hours or days" later and the scarcity of info from all manufactures and retailers doesn't bode well for launch day pickup and I doubt online ordering will fare much better.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joejccva71 ✭ September 2020 It would be nice to have an official word on this before we drive out to the stores or try to wake up early to get their early. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook skes ✭ September 2020 Does anyone know of any way to check if other micro centers will have the shipment or not? There's another one about an hour from me but there is no way to tell if they will have them 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cucuchu ✭ September 2020 edited September 2020 Wouldn't surprise me if this is the case for most/all stores.

We typically have a good variety but there will be models we don't have, just don't know which ones yet sadly.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisAJSon ✭ September 2020 I wonder if the After Market Card will be release at the same day as the FE is release and if it will be available in MC.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 ChrisAJSon said: I wonder if the After Market Card will be release at the same day as the FE is release and if it will be available in MC.  That's what we mean by AIB cards. They'll be releasing the same day.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook floydian022 ✭ September 2020 @TSTonyV - I'm thinking timing is what's going to end up being the big dilemma here for some folks.  Reportedly, Best Buy/NVidia stores will start selling FEs online at 9am, Amazon/Newegg/etc. will also likely start selling AIBs at 9am(although I'll be frequently checking earlier than that just to be sure), and then MC stores don't open until 10am.  So, even if I were to camp at the store from 7am, what are the odds that there would even still be any FEs or decent(or any) AIBs available online if it turns out that my store has 50+ people sitting out front like me and only 30 or so AIB cards(and/or they're all MSI and Zotac cards or something) on hand?  I'd guess probably not great.  I'm sure there's at least someone  within MC who absolutely has to know how many and which cards are coming from each AIB partner and how many of each are getting allocated to which stores.  But unless the answers are "way more than enough" and "pretty much all of them"(and they're almost definitely not), I can also certainly think of at least a couple of reasons why it's probably not a great idea to let that information trickle too far down the chain too far in advance.  That said, managing foot traffic at brick and mortars during a pandemic is already logistically challenging enough for retail employees.  I've been in a couple of times over the past 2-3 months, and my local store has done a fantastic job at handling volume and implementing the protocols to keep everyone safe, as I'm sure most others have as well.  But that's during "normal" volume levels.  I wasn't at MC for the 1000/2000 series releases(or any other big h/w releases), so I'm not sure how crazy it got then or how many people they're expecting this time.  But if there are actually anywhere close to 50 people waiting along with me out front of my local store(hopefully all following store protocol and remaining in their cars until opening and a greeter appears), well, it's going to be super obvious why they're all there.  If the stores become aware that morning or the evening prior that they're not likely to have enough supply for the expected rush, I sure hope that someone has been preemptively thinking of ways to institute some kind of safe/fair way of forming up lines or w/e and keeping it from just turning into a chaotic free-for-all situation at the front door where everyone ends up swarming the poor greeter at the same time - just to be first to get a spot in the queue to be called inside.  I won't be upset about going home empty-handed, as long as it's not because I was the only one who refused to contribute to putting others into an uncomfortable/dangerous situation.  Other than the current "normal" protocols in place(and stated in the COVID FAQ), I haven't found any specific guidance from MC one way or the other as to whether we should be doing anything differently as far as arrival/check-in process at the stores at opening time on release day.  I'm not certain whether that indicates that they're really just not expecting that big of a rush or any Jingle All The Way scenarios at any of their stores, or that perhaps they just haven't really given it much advance thought within the context of maintaining social distancing and trying to tell 30-50 people not to all be in one part of the store at once(i.e. the aisle where the cards are) and crowding up to paw over the same couple of shelves.  Hopefully, we'll get some clarification prior to the 17th. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisAJSon ✭ September 2020 floydian022 said: @TSTonyV -

I believe the way it will be handled is that we'll have vouchers to be handed out to people who arrive early, so they can then wait in their cars rather than standing in line and come in order to claim the cards. I am not 100% certain on that but I think that's the way it's going to work.  ChrisAJSon said:  You could just schedule a pick up for it for you to be reserve than camping outside Reservations will not be available initially for the cards.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisAJSon ✭ September 2020 What If I can't get there early, will you guys have enough stocks?

If the expectation is b.(and I'd bet that it probably is), that's fine.  But I would at least attempt to get someone upstairs to confirm that and then state that clearly and prominently, so that we know what the rules are.  And, just to avoid potential confusion/civil disagreements over where "the line" is/starts, maybe advise store managers to put some sort of sign/indicator as to where we should begin forming the line at(and, if applicable/necessary for safety reasons, tape/rope/otherwise mark off or indicate towards which direction/path the line should form).  There's one big common denominator here between the retail staff and the customers: We ALL want this process to be as stress-free as possible.  I'd say that pulling off events like this in the middle of a pandemic is probably a pretty unique kind of thing, with some potential to get messy.  I just hope that the C-level folks grasp that and actually have some semblance of a plan for you at the retail level, and that they aren't just lazily leaving store managers on their own w/zero guidance to completely wing it individually at each location.  Because, to me, being less than 6 days from release day and less than 100% certain about what the official game plan even is just seems sort of negligent - with potential outcomes ranging literally anywhere from sporadic minor altercations to ending up featured on CNN as the latest super-spreader event.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Bigmurph ✭ September 2020 The cincinatti store handled reopening very well. I assume they'll handle this just fine as well. When you arrived you checked in with people outside who put your name/number on an ipad. and they only allowed 10 people in at a time. when a person left the store, the next person in line got a text. that person would then walk up to the door and give their name and if they were on the manifest they got let in.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Cbreezy1101 ✭ September 2020 ChrisAJSon said: What If I can't get there early, will you guys have enough stocks?

If they have stock after 11am that day, people will be driving from out of state to come grab it.

This is one of the most hyped PC hardware releases in quite a while and I think many people are overestimating just how many cards will be available on launch day.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisAJSon ✭ September 2020 TSTonyV said: floydian022 said: @TSTonyV - I'm thinking timing is what's going to end up being the big dilemma here for some folks.  Reportedly, Best Buy/NVidia stores will start selling FEs online at 9am, Amazon/Newegg/etc. will also likely start selling AIBs at 9am(although I'll be frequently checking earlier than that just to be sure), and then MC stores don't open until 10am.  So, even if I were to camp at the store from 7am, what are the odds that there would even still be any FEs or decent(or any) AIBs available online if it turns out that my store has 50+ people sitting out front like me and only 30 or so AIB cards(and/or they're all MSI and Zotac cards or something) on hand?  I'd guess probably not great.  I'm sure there's at least someone  within MC who absolutely has to know how many and which cards are coming from each AIB partner and how many of each are getting allocated to which stores.  But unless the answers are "way more than enough" and "pretty much all of them"(and they're almost definitely not), I can also certainly think of at least a couple of reasons why it's probably not a great idea to let that information trickle too far down the chain too far in advance.  That said, managing foot traffic at brick and mortars during a pandemic is already logistically challenging enough for retail employees.  I've been in a couple of times over the past 2-3 months, and my local store has done a fantastic job at handling volume and implementing the protocols to keep everyone safe, as I'm sure most others have as well.  But that's during "normal" volume levels.  I wasn't at MC for the 1000/2000 series releases(or any other big h/w releases), so I'm not sure how crazy it got then or how many people they're expecting this time.  But if there are actually anywhere close to 50 people waiting along with me out front of my local store(hopefully all following store protocol and remaining in their cars until opening and a greeter appears), well, it's going to be super obvious why they're all there.  If the stores become aware that morning or the evening prior that they're not likely to have enough supply for the expected rush, I sure hope that someone has been preemptively thinking of ways to institute some kind of safe/fair way of forming up lines or w/e and keeping it from just turning into a chaotic free-for-all situation at the front door where everyone ends up swarming the poor greeter at the same time - just to be first to get a spot in the queue to be called inside.  I won't be upset about going home empty-handed, as long as it's not because I was the only one who refused to contribute to putting others into an uncomfortable/dangerous situation.  Other than the current "normal" protocols in place(and stated in the COVID FAQ), I haven't found any specific guidance from MC one way or the other as to whether we should be doing anything differently as far as arrival/check-in process at the stores at opening time on release day.  I'm not certain whether that indicates that they're really just not expecting that big of a rush or any Jingle All The Way scenarios at any of their stores, or that perhaps they just haven't really given it much advance thought within the context of maintaining social distancing and trying to tell 30-50 people not to all be in one part of the store at once(i.e. the aisle where the cards are) and crowding up to paw over the same couple of shelves.  Hopefully, we'll get some clarification prior to the 17th. I believe the way it will be handled is that we'll have vouchers to be handed out to people who arrive early, so they can then wait in their cars rather than standing in line and come in order to claim the cards. I am not 100% certain on that but I think that's the way it's going to work.  ChrisAJSon said:  You could just schedule a pick up for it for you to be reserve than camping outside Reservations will not be available initially for the cards.  So how does the voucher work?  What time do we have to be there to get this voucher? What time will the employee start handing out the voucher?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook tli ✭ September 2020 Would I be able to come early at say 7:00 to pick up a voucher, go home and then return when the store opens to pick up the card? Are the vouchers specifically for the card, or do they just affect the order of who goes in the store first? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Felicity near Tustin ✭ September 2020 tli said: Would I be able to come early at say 7:00 to pick up a voucher, go home and then return when the store opens to pick up the card?

If it's anything like how it was after the TrumpCheck(tm) we all got, (place got absolutely demolished and thank goodness everyone buys awful looking LED covered graphics cards, the basic black ones were stocked still) they basically took down your cell number, gave you a note I think, and everyone went in in the order they arrived. That was during business hours, since there was a strict occupation limit on the building. When someone left, they would text the next person on the list- and if you didn't show up within 5 minutes or so, they'd let the next person in and make you wait (but didn't drop your spot entirely iirc).  I can imagine they'd do something similar again, but since it'd be before store hours, idk. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Bunches ✭ September 2020 Do you know if the process will be the same for all of the stores ? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Shortliv3d ✭ September 2020 edited September 2020 ChrisAJSon said: I am planning to order the founders edition online, but there a Micro Center near me and I am curious if the GeForce RTX™ 3080 (After market and Founders Edition) be available on the release date? and will I be available to schedule a pickup?  I just called the Dallas Microcenter.

Did they mention a voucher system?  While it's not impossible a line could start that early, we do not have an official "designated time" for a line to start or anything like that. The rep you spoke with may have just been relaying something they'd heard from another customer who said they'd be there then, I'd be careful about sticking to specific times like that.  As for the voucher system, as far as I'm aware we will be doing something like that, but still waiting on clarification. I'm hoping we can get all the details back out to you guys today and update the OP with an updated FAQ. ChrisAJSon said: Why are you lining up before release? do they guarantee you guys the gpu when you give them your cellphone number?  GPUs will be first come first served, so some people are planning to show up early to make sure they can get one on launch, as stock will be fairly limited at the beginning.  2 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisAJSon ✭ September 2020 edited September 2020 @TSTonyV Thank you. please do update us.

We've got you covered with two builds, one AMD and one Intel, designed to make the most of the new graphics card.                                                                                                                                                                            Photo: NVIDIA AMD NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For AMD, we'll be putting together a sleek black minimalist build, focused on power over flash. Processor: Ryzen 5 5600X We're aiming for the sweet spot with the Ryzen 5 5600X. It'll be more than enough processing power for your average usage, with a sizable chunk to spare, without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS x570 TUF Gaming If you're building with an RTX 3060 the day it comes out, you're going to have a bit of an easier time making the most of the card with an AMD build. The RTX 3060 can make use of a PCIe 4.0 slot, and doing so gives it an extra bit of oomph. And, while Intel is starting to put out PCIe 4.0 motherboards, AMD has been making use of them for a bit now. Add on to that the minimal black aesthetic that we're looking for with this build, and you have a winning motherboard. Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 TUF Gaming Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Obviously, we'll be going with one of the new GeForce RTX 3060s, but the ASUS TUF version has the synergy with our x570 TUF motherboard we're looking for, as well as that simple black coloring to match the rest of the build. But, this also has RGB, letting you draw attention to your gorgeous new graphics card while bathing the rest of your all-black build in soft, rainbow light. RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 16 gigs of RAM is more than most users will ever need, but with only two sticks to get us there, you'll have plenty of room to expand. Plus, the aesthetic of the RAM will blend in perfectly with the build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Hard drives might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair CX650M 650 Watt 80+ Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply If we want to put together something sleek and clean, we need good cable management. Enter the semi-modular power supply. Use the cables you need, put the rest back in the box. Case: Lian Li 205 Tempered Glass ATX Lian Li makes nothing but gorgeous, sleek cases, and the 205 is no exception. With no RGB on-board, the only glow will be from your brand new 3060, lighting up the 205 through its tempered glass window, showcasing a clean powerhouse of a build. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bb8da1ad-6dd2-4bff-8443-5d8de9f0c20f Intel NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Build For our Intel build, we'll be putting something together with a lot of flash and RGB, wrapped up in a clean white aesthetic. Processor: Intel Core i5-10600K Much like the AMD build, the i5-10600k hits the sweet spot of having enough power to handle daily tasks and gaming with ease without breaking the bank. Motherboard: ASUS Z590-P Prime Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard Getting the most out of an Intel build is a bit trickier, but there are a few recently-released motherboards that can still get you that PCIe 4.0 slot that will allow you to make the most out of your new RTX 3060. Plus the silver trim on the board sets up what is going to be an incredibly clean and colorful build. Graphics Card: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Vision Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 not only makes full use of the PCIe 4.0 slots in our ASUS Z590-P motherboard, but the silver plating matches the silver trim as well. Add on to that even more RGB to really drive home those bright multi-colored lights in a light backdrop, and you've got a winning card. RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 White Two sticks of 8GM DD4-3200, more than enough for daily use with the ability to add more if you need it. But the choice for this ram comes from the white color and on-RAM RGB lighting to keep with the color theme while adding more lights to your build. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD (For everything else) Same reasons as the AMD build: they might not be the flashiest part of a PC build, but with a WD Black M.2 for your OS (with room to spare), your computer will be up and running in the blink of an eye. Add on an extra terabyte of space with Samsung's 860 EVO in a 2.5" form factor and you've got all the space you need, running at lightning speeds. Power Supply: Corsair RM850x 850 Watt 80+ Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply 850 Watts with an 80+ Gold rating, this power supply is ready to handle everything you can throw at it, and look invisible doing it thanks to fully modular cables, meaning you only use what you absolutely have to. Less cables = less cable management = cleaner looking PC. Plus, the white paint job will help your PSU blend right into your case. Case: Lian Li Liancool II Tempered Glass eATX Mesh Mid Tower Computer Case - White Lian Li makes its second appearance with another, totally different case. This white case features swing panels on both sides for easy access, a basement for cable storage, and glass panels so everyone can gasp at your pure white, RGB-filled build. Oh, and the case also has RGB. Bonus - Heat Sink: Red Dragon CC2011 CPU Cooler, Slim Design RGB LED White Heat Sink Fan Not a necessary part for the build, but definitely necessary to pull the whole aesthetic together. Forgo the stock fan that comes with your Intel i5-10600k in favor of one with more power and more RGB. White radiator with an RGB fan? A perfect finishing touch. The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=417cb877-192d-4284-888c-5f9be291be55 Got your own idea for a build? Leave them in the comments! Or, if you build either of these, we want to see them over on our Build Showcase! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Benzoxazine ✭ February 28 Why go with an X570? You'll only see at most 1-2% difference in performance. I would have gone with a B450/X470 build. Shave off $70 there. If you choose the appropriate MB, you can do resizable bar even with 400 series AM4 MBs. Both the video cards you listed at way over MSRP at approx. $500 at the time of this post (which is important!). Go with the EVGA XC model instead to save $110. So now we have $200 to save or to invest in other parts. So we could upgrade the CPU to a 5600X and save money still! Changing to this CPU will affect the performance significantly more than having a better MB or different GPU model. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJOP ✭ March 2 I returned my 5600x, B550 F-ROG, RAM and ROG power supply when it was obvious I wasn't completing a build anytime soon. Nice hypotheticals you have here. I'm forced into prebuilts. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 3 Hey @Benzoxazine I can't be 100% certain of the reason SeanM made his choices here, but I have a fairly good guess. If the board manufacturer has listed that B450/X470 is compatible with the 5600X, then you definitely could do that. However, it would require at least a BIOS update. The ASUS x570 TUF Gaming is quite an economical option for the X570 series especially if you're looking to upgrade your storage down the line. After all, these are just recommendations and you could definitely mix and match compatible parts to better suit your theme or your budget. @JJOP Sorry to hear that you wouldn't be able to complete your build quickly. There is a global shortage of several essential parts to complete a PC right now. We're doing our best to get as many as possible as quickly as possible!

Please try redeeming it from your email copy by copy/pasting it and that most likely will get it working.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

Ajaness ✭ February 2020 in Help Choosing Parts Before anything else please note the Graphics Card in the build is a placeholder to buy for a bit to see if anything comes out on the RTX 3000 series, otherwise swapping in something like a 2080ti or equivalent in the 3000 series which would eat ~$13000 from the listed budget. Budget also doesn't consider mouse/keyboard/headset/monitor/windows-key or a 1tb non NVMe ssd I already own from the previous tower. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=61f3afb3-5cca-42e4-a45f-38e74d5f26c1 Including these parts I didn't find available from Microcenter: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler Fractal Design Meshify S2 ATX Mid Tower Case Also not sure to stick with that motherboard in the builder or this one also available from Microcenter: ASUS X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard I'm not an expert and all this has been pulled together after days of research and input from another forum but would really like any input before pulling the trigger, especially on mobo. I'm really not sure what the difference ends up being for a $150 price gap. The goal is to "future proof" a VR capable tower able to last ~6+ years like the current tower I'm replacing did. I know future proof isn't actually possible but to be able to VR to varying quality over the next 6ish years would be phenomenal. If it helps to judge the build's quality assume the graphics card will upgrade into: MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio Triple-Fan 11GB GDDR6 PCIe 3.0 Video Card 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 Accepted Answer With that sort of budget, I'd personally look at switching up the motherboard a bit. I've read in a few places that the X570 Taichi has a weird issue where, depending on which graphics card and slot you put it in, your GPU can end up feeding hot air into the chipset heatsink and cause it get hotter than it should and potentially cause performance issues. The X570 Crosshair VIII Hero is definitely a good option, another option I'd look at would the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master. You can also play around with your RAM a bit and find a kit that would perform as well for a little less, like the the G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600 kits we carry.  This is what it'd look like with the parts I mentioned switched out:  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=d8481cc7-d1b5-4848-91b4-ba49fde7840d As a note, I put in the Lian-Li case as a placeholder for price since we don't have the Meshify S2, just the Meshify C which is smaller than the S2. I also put in the Noctua DH-15S as a placeholder for price. It is very similar to the DH-15 but has one less fan.  With those two things in as place holders total price comes out to just under $2800 before tax assuming the MSI 2080ti you were looking at is the final decistion.  5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TheITDad ✭✭ February 2020 https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=b7bdf3dd-cc3c-4cdc-a0fb-00e80c6f4ed3 So this is the completed build and it comes in at about 2850 with 3 fans to replace the ones in the case I picked and put similar ram.  I would say the "actual" cost of these parts as long as you somewhat deal shop is more in the 2750 range plus or minus a few bucks.  So that leaves you about 200-250 in head room to play around with.  Now since you have basically the best GPU without going to a titan and your AMD 3900x is no slouch of a CPU either that leaves you the rest of the PC for upgrades.  And to me the best place for you to upgrade would be to go with an AIO cooler for your CPU.  While AMD generally has cooler CPU's than Intel.  Any CPU with that much horsepower is just gonna get hot, with it's TDP of 105 w.  I would go with something along the lines of a https://www.microcenter.com/product/618680/nzxt-kraken-x73-360mm-rgb-cpu-water-cooling-kit, or https://www.microcenter.com/product/610102/evga-clc-360-360mm-rgb-water-cooling-kit.  This will allow you to maintain better CPU temps and these should still let you fall well under the 3k limit.  Now personally I like the performance of Noctua fans, but by god the standard ones are ugly.  Try to find the all black unless you like the color scheme then do you.  Otherwise with these parts your about as "future proof" as you can get.  Sticking with the 2080TI even after the 3000 series comes out will probably save you a bit of cash because while not a huge price drop the 2080TI will drop possibly under the 1100 mark once the 3000 series drops and honestly that GPU should handle just about anything you throw at it for at least another 2-3 years and by then the 3000 series will have dropped slightly and you can upgrade that then. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ajaness ✭ February 2020 G.Skill Trident Z Neo is what I was considering but by recommendation swapped to Corsair's LPX due to its reputation as low profile to make sure it would fit on the mobo with the Noctura fan. I'm very wary of liquid cooling and would rather not deal with it if I can get away with air cooling with the Noctua, I don't mind the ugly brown and white color scheme but will look into the black. It seems though that the build should preform great once I settle on a mobo, just down to waiting on the 3000 series. Will probably look harder at mobo's until I come in to my local-ish microcenter but it's probably down to either the Crosshair VIII Hero or the recommended Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master. The Aorus Elite and Pro have been recommended separately as well, and the 1 year warranty on the Crosshair VIII Hero is a bit of a turn-off for a $400 board so might end up with one of the Aorus iterations. Good call on the Taichi issue, I've spent most of my time trying to learn about cpu/gpu and have nothing in the mobo area so possibly saved me there. Thanks for the input! Any final thoughts would be appreciated but I'll probably be ordering the RAM, Noctua, and Case tomorrow to hope it arrives by the weekend when I should be in to microcenter to snag the rest. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin February 2020 edited February 2020 Ajaness said:  the 1 year warranty on the Crosshair VIII Hero is a bit of a turn-off for a $400 board so might end up with one of the Aorus iterations.  The 1-year warranty listed on our website is incorrect actually, this motherboard should have a three-year warranty through ASUS. I'll make sure we get that over to our web team to be corrected.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here.

Each store has different systems set in place for the releases and stock, such as a voucher system. Sometimes, we have people camping out daily for these cards and once we get some in, they are sold out immediately to those people or whoever is next in line in the voucher system. We don't expect to have consistent stock until mid January. Until then, we cannot list stock information for these on our website. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Geo ✭ November 2020 Fair enough  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment.
