    What in the hell is wrong with these people? Do they really think it is acceptable to break products that their customers purchase and leave them high and dry with no means of correcting it? So evil, incompetent, and inconsiderate, they are. At least that person with the Vega 64 was able to use an unofficial process to undo their mess.

    Yeah, the lovely with non-proprietary solutions. It just works for all. I wonder why Dell's own tech support personal can't answer in a simple way and not cover it into PM. This is too dumb.

    Just say it won't work. Then put it sticky on top of the AW forum page for all others who will ask same questions again and again. Yeah, this is too stupid!

    AGA, Nvidia RTX 30xx series issues

    But as usual. Dell Tech support avoid replying on topics they want to avoid. No problem answer other questions.

    I still could not use this modification normally and am waiting for a better quality version from another seller.
    P.S. Perhaps the seller to fix this problem. But the clamp on the video chip is too weak. I needed to replace the mounting screws, which made me disassemble the standard cooling system. :(

    So, with the poor fit issue is that actually an improvement over stock or a downgrade in thermal performance? Or, the fit is so bad you have not tested it at all?

    Unfortunately, I could not find the optimal length and clamping force of the screws and thickness of the thermal pads. As a result, the temperatures on the video chip were terrible, but the cpu worked 10-15 degrees colder during the stress test.
    After all, I ordered a better quality mod from another seller.

    This is interesting for me. Can you share with us that heatsink's link? I have only an RTX2070, maybe this can be much more colder than the 2080 under this modded heasink.

    I asked here and Spartan responded the best for money drive to put in the Area 51m is the HP EX950 not the Samsung Pro....yet I'm was informed this recently:

    HP EX950 are not in the same tier as Samsung Pro or Samsung EVO Plus line up. I'd classify them in the "mid-tier", along the lines of the XPG SX8200 (In fact, the HP EX950 might as well be the exact same drive, it uses the same Flash and Flash controller as the SX8200).

    It's probably placed above the Kingston A2000 but below the Evo Plus line-ups. That said, there is very little practical difference between the SX8200/EX950 and the 970 EVO Plus, at that point, it's all down objective facts and figures (eg. X drive is faster in Y benchmark).

    Which is the BEST for speed and quality?
    Looking at 2TB or is it better to get 4TB?
    Any Prime Day deals guys?
