    Bah... teach me to do 2 things at once.
    Expected the HoF cards to perform that way.. they're rare af, and the pinnacle of Galax's products.
    It's nice to see them getting more exposure now people are sourcing cards from further afield

    As long as it can beat the Kingpin I am happy.

    I am getting really disappointed with EVGA the way they have treated loyal customers outside of North America.

    Just been through this myself. I had a AX860 PSU, upgraded to the 3090fe and ran 75 hours of Cyberpunk without a problem, few weeks later I'm getting system power off's under load in several games. Stressed CPU and GPU on it's own without a problem so I started to question the PSU, on paper the high quality AX860 should be more than enough but I upgraded to a RM1000x anyway and sure enough the power off's have gone. The AX860 was just under 4 year's old and getting RMA'd I still don't know whether it was on it's way out or if the power draw of the 3090fe was just to much when it spiked.

    I am running an 8pack 2000w psu so if that goes pop i am out lol a 1000w spike will not be kind to many PSU's no matter who makes them. i know of a 1200i corsair that went pop after 3 weeks of 3090 use. was fine for years but 3 weeks of the 3090 and pop pop pop with some smoke!

    It's an interesting point on the 1000w spikes. I have a Corsair RM850.

    I've been trying to play Cyberpunk and have been getting crashses every 20-60 minutes so far.

    Other games and benchmarks seems ok, but Cyberpunk is bar far the most graphically intensive. I've been gradually winding down my already mild overclocks on GPU/RAM/CPU but my last step is to test with everything at stock before investigating other causes.

    I did the same, the only way I could get slightly stable was to run the 3090 at stock speeds and power, this way it would take much longer to crash and looking at things it would top out at 420w doing this. But it would still power off my system every now and again. After upgrading I can pump my card with 120% power and 120 core again.

    I bought a 1200W Superflower Platinum Plus PSU in 2014 to power (at the time) an AMD R9 295XT + 290X combo

    It's still going strong now with my 5900x + 3090 OC :)

    Given it's ability to take all the other components with it if it dies, I'd be wanting to retire a PSU that old by now!

    Superflower are good PSU's and it will be fine even now, it has a very strong 12v rail and will protect the hardware just as when new.

    Don’t appear to be having any power issues myself with my 3090FE but I’ve just upgraded my new build to a 1000W instead as it’ll be paired with a 5950X instead of the current 2700X.

    Same my hx1000i going strong from 2014/2015. I bought an rm850x to replace it recently but that exploded within a week so I just refitted it.

    Haven’t had a single issue with it ever. Very good quality psu. Does have 10 year warranty so as long as it keeps going I’ll keep it until it runs out. Probably replace it with another similar unit.

    I used a ax750 for a few months no problem even with a hungry 300watt intel and a 500watt 3090.

    It is quiet interesting seeing how different PSU's are coping and more interesting what will happen couple of years down the line.

    Have had no issue powering a 3090FE @ 400w overclocked with 9900k on a Corsair SFX 750w unit, nor silverstone 700w SFX unit prior in the heaviest loads I could chuck at them.
