Isn't the TI rumored to release in just a month or so though?

Not denying you'll still have a plenty fast system, but I guess we'll see.

Somehow the only FE card I successfully bought was a 3090. So now I'm just considering just using it. If I can get my hands on a 6900XT or a 3080 ti, I think I can sell the 3090 FE at cost. Given the scarcity, I think it's a safe bet.

Haven't been following rumors, but I'm guessing the 3080 Ti offers very modest core count or clock speed improvements over the 3080, if any at all. The big plus will be greater RAM capacity and any bandwidth improvements that accompany it.

EDIT: Just checked Tom's and that's not the rumor at all. A 3090-level CU count doesn't make sense, nor does a 20GB of Nvidia's RAM for $1000. But we'll see. If they do produce to this rumored spec these cards will be more rare than hen's teeth, and probably cost near a 3090 anyway.

From a marketing standpoint, they can't sell a card that loses to the 6900XT for more - heck, even matching performance they may not be able to do that.

I fully expect this version of the 3080 Ti to be real and release around January at a price competitive with the 6900XT - but like you said, guess we'll see.

When I see the small difference between the 3080 and 3090 I personally don't really see the added value to wait for the ti over the normal 3080.

It's all in the VRAM. Doesn't matter if you plan to buy a new video card within the next year or so, but if you plan to keep your build for 3+ years, 10GB may start being a limitation.

Do I need countersunk screws for 27mm radiator with 15mm fans or round head ones will be fine?
The only 6-32 3/4" countersunk black screws I could find on eBay would be shipped from China.

Hey guys, Is the only way to fit 2x 25mm fans on top of the TX240 and have the lid close is to sand them down?
there's only 2mm gap between the shroud and the core of the TX240, if you sand down the A12x25 enough to close the lid, the fan blade would hit the core and not spinning. Best is to use the Hanjiang 17mm thick rad or wait for @Wahaha360 to get around to do a custom 17mm thick high FPI rad

2020-11-28: Asus ROG STRIX 3070, 3080, 3090 compatibility will require a new Front T-Frame.

@Wahaha360 Does this mean that cases for the december batch will be send with a reworked T frame?
I have an order with you but depending on the changes to the case in the near future I'd like to wait for them before you ship the final product that's why I ask.
Could you give me some more insight?

I bought the "LINKUP - Ultra PCIe 4.0 X16 Riser Cable [NVIDIA RTX3080 Tested] Twin-axial Vertical Mount Gaming PCI Express Gen4 | Dual Reverse Connectors {20 cm} Designed for ITX+NVIDIA ONLY."

The ribbon cables are stiff to the point where I can't bend them down enough (near the mobo PCIE slot) to get the bottom panel on the case. I've crammed a 3090 FE into my T1, so maybe the height of the GPU is the issue. Has anyone been able to get this to work?

Having issues with the EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra and the SF750 stock cables. First the stock cables are too long. This is causing issues on both sides of the case. Also cannot get the bottom panel over the GPU side because the power cables stick out too much and cannot be bent or moved any more.

Any ideas? Shorter cables will help on the CPU side but the GPU will need a 90-angled connector or something...

You could flip the PSU and that would help with cables on the CPU side, but I would get custom cables from pslate for the GPU. And if you end up going that route, tell him you want some shorter PCIe connectors for the GPU, he will cut them down and that will give you more room to work with. You can also probably lower the riser a tad to get some extra room.

Thanks for the advice. I will start with the cables. Do you think they will fit with the shorter connectors or will I need to do more?

Shorter connectors are the main thing that will help. People have fit this card in this case before, and with unmodified cables IIRC, so you should be fine.

Biggest problem with the SF750 pcie cables is that they are 8 to dual 6+2 connections. So you have all this extra bulk you dont want.

Navic is exactly right. Custom cables will solve all of your problems. And shaving a couple mm's from the molex connector will help considerably. That is what I was planning on doing before my XC3 ultra arrived.

Spent sometime sanding today, and I just want to report that I was able to sand down the both NF-A12x25 fans to fit on top of the TX240, and still able to spin. Also had to flip the radiator bracket down to save another 1mm.

The one toward the IO shield has to be 0.89in (22.6mm) or less, while the one on the PSU side can be slightly thicker 0.90in - 0.91in (~23mm), but best to keep both the same size if you don't any bulges.
