Did you get air cooling or water? How is the noise?

Is the nvme pci 4? I even emailed support, did chat, no one at dell can tell me if the nvme upgrade is pcie3 or 4 - with direct storage coming you need 4.

Mine appears to be reporting PCIe 3.0 for the NVMe. Though that could just be the drive they gave me itself rather than the motherboard caps.

 

While the board supports 4.0 I guess maybe 4.0 x4 is possible

"Motherboard Slots:                                                              4xPCI Express x1, 2xPCI Express x2, 2xPCI Express x4, 2xPCI Express x8, 1xPCI Express x16"

 

 

Technically 4.0 x16 for the GPU, however it only operates at x8..

but at least the impact of x8 vs x16 is pretty minimal:

Out of the box my system does not support Smart Access Memory / Resizable BAR. However a new system BIOS was released on May 26th that appears to:

Note that the BIOS option becomes available, but is still defaulted to 'Disabled'.

I set it to 'Auto' and checked the Resources tab under the 6800 XT's properties in Device Manager and it shows Large Memory Range now, so it works!

Oh, and I did get liquid cooling on mine. It's a little noisy, and it does seem to mostly be the CPU cooler spinning up from time to time. The GPU I notice the delta because even in World of Warcraft 4K max settings (no RayTracing) it'll still run the fan at 0 RPM some, so just the difference of nothing to something is noticeable sometimes. Idle usage like being here is fine.

 

Air cooling is generally better with a large heatsink, but I had reservations about their cooler being called 'low profile' that I wasn't really sure it would be in this case.

 

I'm coming from an XFX R9 290X though and that thing was LOUD at 4K.. so I'm probably pretty tolerant to noise.

 

GamersNexus keeps mentioning they ordered one of these Ryzen Alienware systems, so I can't wait to see them make me feel bad about it whenever that video comes out ;D

Hah, I've been waiting on that one given what a train wreck the others have been.  But I picked up the i5-10400f model for $350 from someone who just bought it for the GPU.  I was going to stick my old 1080 in it but that card is much too long so I'm going to try an RX580 8GB I currently have in an older system.

 

On the 3080Ti front, the EVGA launch was an expected debacle and I wasn't able to get a couple queue spots registered until 2.25 hours after launch.  So I'm a half hour out on one of the cards but that can either go fairly quick (like the 3060 XC gaming queue moved after launch) or take forever (like most queues have moved after launch).

3080 Ti is too rich for my blood TBH, but my HO OMEN 30L with a 3060 TI just shipped, so that's cool.

The EVGA Elite queue yesterday went awful.

Word to the wise, if you're Elite and want a 3070 Ti make sure you're logged into EVGA's website BEFORE the queue goes up. Sounds like common sense, but I think that's what stopped a lot of people in their tracks.

Hopefully after what happened yesterday with the 3080 Ti, EVGA improves the way it's going to be set up for the 3070 Ti or I can foresee a lot of upset people.

If anyone wants to help me snag a 3070ti I’d be willing to pay $150 over msrp. Probably a long shot but figured I’d throw that out there.

That basically is MSRP for the AIB cards. Forget the prices from 2020; those got tossed when they repriced the cards in January once tariffs hit and had an excuse to add in for scarce availability as well.

The only cards at original MSRP are the Nvidia FE cards from Best Buy. The AIB partner card that jacked up the least was EVGA. Pricing from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, etc is a joke now no matter where you shop.

Good news - I finally got selected in the Newegg Shuffle

 

Meh news - It's for a 3060

 

 

Not exactly what I wanted, but in the current climate I'll take it. Fortunately I'm still gaming at 1080p and it should be a nice upgrade from my current 1070.

i have been watching best buy.com all morning for the 3070ti; looks like it has not been available at all.    anyone know?     news said bb was going to sell 3070ti online; even though 3080ti was in person only last week.
