I did not expect this pack to be equiped with adapters , splitters , nor anything in between. Much welcomed these are, though suffice to say , I will , indiscriminately sack two fans for their frames, because the alternative would be a make my very own.

Well... you DID say "show off"; so.....
box - front.jpg
box - back.jpg

Look at that MRP! At least now we know the maximum limit of a Founder's Edition card's price on eBay(note, all my Indian friends)! For everyone else in the world, don't pay more than $684 - that's what that is, converted to USD!
(FTR, I paid nowhere near this price when I bought it.)
label.jpg

I've wanted to buy a Founder's Edition card ever since I started building my PC in November 2015. At the time, I wanted a reference GTX 970 which I thought was cool-looking with that shiny blower cooler. I know blower-type coolers suck in general, but I'd heard good things about the reference cooler design of the 970 (courtesy @W1zzard of course)
inverted!.jpg

The box actually opens like a shoe-box, and the card is packed inverted in it! And for the record, it's heavier than it looks, although it's smaller than I thought it'd be - look at the box comparison with my 970:
vs strix.jpg

The card with my Strix and the my old 650:
IMG_20210104_205043594.jpg

I haven't weighed both the cards, but I can certainly say that even though the box looks smaller, the card is heavier than the Strix(I think because the body is all metal as compared to the plastic shroud of the Strix).
The famed "12-pin connector". And yes, it's less than half the size of the 8-pin PCI-E power connector:
12-pin adapter.jpg

The card from the front and top:
IMG_20210104_205832622.jpg

IMG_20210104_205907952.jpg

The card from the back. Be careful, it's a fingerprint magnet! I actually had to wipe it down before taking the picture.
back panel.jpg

Some more pics:
accessories.jpg
with box.jpg

Seeing this, I am sure - NVIDIA may be charging a pretty penny, but they do a mean design. Both the card and the box, as well as the package foam and accessories are of high quality. I just wanted to put it on the table and stare at it.

I haven't installed the card yet, so unable to post benchmarks. Even after I do install it, the benchmarks will be CPU-bound, as I've got this card for a bit of future-proofing and I use a 1080p monitor. For the CPU, I use an i5-4690k(it was the fastest i5 available at the time I built my PC).

Isn't that a bit overpriced? That's over 400 USD :confused:

Not trying to shoot you down or anything, just surprised at the price.

Just got the case. Got the mouse a week ago.





Would like to add.

The case is nice looking. Has USB C along with 2 USB 3.0 on front i/o. And comes with 4 pre installed RGB fans (don't care about RGB but hey,can't complain). For $89 CAD (boxing week sale). The mouse cost me $40 cad on sale and so far is pretty good.

Is that a good value? I have no idea about AMD; I've always been an Intel guy.
It is...but it was one of the cheapest around. normally it should've been around £280 but these days nothing is selling at MSRP

309 Pounds for a Six Core Amd with 10-15% more Power, while a i5 10400 is about 140$ or a 3600x for 170$ :rolleyes:

I have no clue why AMD can hold those Prices for theyr CPU
Sorry mate but that is soooooo stupid not even an intel Fanboy would pay twice for 10-15% more Performance

Edit 309 Pounds are in the moment 420$,
for 440$ u get a 3900X or 10900 by us

:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

Power Supply came in today. I must say out of all the PSUs I’ve bought overtime I’ll say this is one of top ones in terms of packaging. I also like the flat black modular cables.

I’m hoping for the best
I've gone from EVGA units over to Seasonic at the moment. Been getting a few good buys from Ebay on brand new units.. Sadly missed out on a few I'd have liked but I'm quite happy to hold on and get something later on now :)

i grabbed one of the phanteks PSU's for my nephews build. he didnt want to spend a bunch, & i noticed the usual PSU's i buy have increased in price significantly (seasonic) , so i looked at comparable models. phanteks was full modular, 10 year warranty, 80+ Gold, & was $99.

I've not bought Corsair units in years. Had 3 or 4 bad 1200i units, never used them since. That said I do still have a working RM750 and a RM450 floating about here. I really do need to consider swapping that 750 out since it's in my home server... I can't have that dying on me at all...

But still I digress, I just hope it works well and you get no issues :) Jayztwocents did a video on one recently, I was not convinced I'd try one but it was a cable as well at fault... Strange stuff!!

TPU did a review as well. It ran fine but when overloaded the protection didn’t kick in and it exploded. It was around 900W.

Power Supply came in today. I must say out of all the PSUs I’ve bought overtime I’ll say this is one of top ones in terms of packaging. I also like the flat black modular cables.
I remember when I got my Seasonic X-650 power supply for my current PC.
It was expensive; cost INR 8900 ($150) (most cheap 450W "gutless wonder" PSU's on the market cost INR 450($9)) and the second most expensive PSU I'd ever purchased was the Corsair CX430 at INR 3000 ($50).
But when it arrived, I just kept looking at it.
Shiny matte finish, fully modular sockets, large grille at the back for exhausting waste air, two switches - one for switching fan-off mode and the other as the power switch, separate velvet bag of cables,... It was quality at its finest. I felt spoilt.

Doesn't give me masses of confidence in a PSU if I'm honest... For me the PSU is one of the most or the most important pieces of kit in any PC system
