The technical error may have been fixed but the moral and ethical error is still there!

long after, it will remain a click bait

Yeah probably 250M people sit every day hitting F5 24/7. I gave up a while ago even if I want reference 3090, the only air-cooled 3090 worth buying. Simply no chance to get it before 2025.

Now solely aiming for Asus' 3090 with waterblock.

What makes you think the 3090FE is the only one worth buying?
This card gets so damn hot, even with light load. The Backplate hits 80+C easily, which means VRAM on the back of the PCB gets roasted with 100+C.

I have this card in a very spacious case (CaseLabs TH10A) with everything around this cards being watercooled and lots of air getting blown at it from fans directly under it (bottom rad). Still I need an extra fan blowing at the Backplate of the card and am afraid to close the side panel because of the sheer amount of heat this card produces. Its about time it gets a waterblock.

So no, I would not recommend this card to anyone without proper watercooling.

Stop saying EU like there were ever available across the EU. The 3 FE cards they sold were sold in the countries the nvidia regional sites are on: .de .co.uk, .fr, etc. Other EU countries got zilch - the cards coudn't be bought.

Also the EU stock seems to be 10 times more pathetic than the US since the prices were always +200 EUR of what US got ....

Aparently I won't be able to afford a GPU if my 960 breaks, since there are no 300 eur GPUs out there, and if there are some they arent capable of running solitare.
