    [US] GPU Stock Status (Microcenter , Newegg)

    Since my local Fry's Electronics had gone out of business, there is not a single PC components store to serve the population of 7 million people in my area, except the few Best Buy stores. I hope Micro Center will expand to here one day. I yearn for the days when I could go into a store and pick...

    Hopefully those AMD AIBs will see the stock not moving and drop prices.

    I don't think prices have gone down either. $500 for a 1660 Super is still too much.

    Is there a reason that Prime 95 is no good? I have this kit. It is on the QVL for the mobo I believe, at lease from G Skill site it listed the mobo as compatible. https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-64gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232916

    The PSU was plugged into a UPS. The CMOS battery was 4 years old. The PSU was 2 years old, bought new when I did the build.

    ??? Huh? I think I will run some stress tests tonight when I am done with my work. I actually gamed on it last night for couple of hours, even though it was not a demanding game at all. I hate these kinds of troubleshooting.

    I have 2 sets that are both 3200MHz. Maybe the 3600MHz set is stressing the CPU memory controller too much? But should I run memtest first? Or Prime95?

    Okay, I need some help with this one. I figure troubleshooting is going to take a while. I went to get lunch, then grabbed the backup PSU. When I was done, about an hour later, I tried to turn on the computer one more time, and it booted with a message - "overclock has failed, system has been...

    Thanks everyone, looks like I will start with the PSU first. Good thing I have the same PSU for backup so I can just swap it out with all the cables in place. If it is the mobo then I am in trouble. I have 5 nvme drives and 6 sata drives that I don’t know what I am going to do. My knees weakened...

    Computer just died

    So I was in the middle of working and all of the sudden the computer just shut off. I unplugged the power and cable, reset, tried several times, and the computer came on briefly, fans spin for a second, gpu RGB light came on, and then immediately shut off. One time it booted into the bios but...

    Availability is increasing, now we need the price to come down as well

    Try it, I don’t think it will be much worse

    I think your fan curve is a bit aggressive. You can tame it down a bit. This is mine -

    Your GPU fan speed is at 100%? Mine gets up to 64% to get to my temp.

    Your temp is fine. Make sure you get plenty of air flow into your case.
