    Same with the 3080 to 3090. Same as the Titan/Ti pricing in previous generations. Obviously they are over priced but its always the same at the ultra high end of anything. You are paying a premium to get minimal gains and its not meant to be value at that point just bragging rights.

    Yeah thats what i thought, my 2080ti with water cooling was 30 something most of the time. Pretty sure its these cards though, maybe it doesnt like my multi monitor setup or something. Nothing is using GPU.

    Just left my PC idle and went for dinner, memory is pretty hot considering its not doing anything. This is with OC core +175 and power limit maxed. Although I've reset it to defaults now in Afterburner and it doesn't make any difference.

    Yeah 6X runs hot, just the way it is. Do you have poor case airflow as kind of hot for idle.

    Your GPU is not going into Idle that's the problem, restore the nvidia drivers back to defaults and make sure your windows power profile is set to balanced.

    Idle for that card is 210MHz not 1665MHz as it shows in that picture.

    Airflow is decent, Dark Base Pro 900 inverted, but tbh i have all the fans low since I was watercooled with my 2080 Ti and I enjoy silence

    looks like your have a power hog in the system, the gpu is drawing 100w constantly which isn't normal it should be far lower at idle, could be a software bug - maybe do a clean install of drivers

    Def give it a bit of an undervolt til then, it'll help a lot and might make it beareable.

    Looks like it was a driver issue, clean installed and now downclocks to 210Mhz, temperature dropping. Thank you.

    Yeah, he's an idiot. The better YouTubers have done little of this sort of thing as they know it will annoy people.

    This kid just likes to show off his stuff and is about as funny as a punch in the throat.

    Wtf is all the left to right bs about? At one point I thought he was sitting on a high stool with wheels, turns out he’s just randomly moving about for some reason. Looks like he’s wearing a wig he got from Ali express and those specs look as useful as a slap on the tadger.

    3070 TI is the least interesting card in the whole stack to me.

    3080 TI would be nice if it was available, which it never will be (at Msrp).

    This is my YouTube tech channel blacklist, I never watch videos from these channels because of several reasons

    RedGamingTech: Most annoying voice known to mankind

    Austin Evans: Has no idea what he's talking about

    Marques Brownlow: Has no idea what he's talking about outside of phones


    IJustine: Just a copycat of Brownlee and Evans, no thanks


    PC Centric: Has no idea what he's talking about and worse, pretends like he does - also has extremely annoying voice and mannerisms


    Stop The FOMO: Has no idea what he's talking about and pretends like he does - gets called out constantly by reputable channels and ignores it

    Quantum TV: Constantly promotes fake news and spouts lies. Also gets called out by other reputable channels and ignores it.



    there may be more channels, that's just off the top of my head. For a few years I also had LinusTechTips on my blacklist but decided to remove him to give him another chance
