    I think the 8GB on the RTX3080 is a typo, the same thing happened when it was first made available for purchase. Edit: They have corrected it now to 16GB.


    As for the QHD display, yeah, I am also quite disappointed in the lack of that as well. I hope they would introduce that option further down the line or if/when they release the R2 variant.

    It look's the same as TGC, contains around 25 % of indium, sure not a foil.

    Why?
    From your post... After repasted with Indium (CPU) 128 W/mK (yes, not gallium as the TGC with around 73 W/mK).

    Coollaboratory Liquid Pro is 79 W/mK. Can't get it much higher than this.

    Because my DXRACER seat is 8 years old, I hadn't any comfort in it anymore [​IMG]

    You don't like the color? I had a white leather sofa many years ago but never again. All Black for me :)

    It's coming from a guy who's working with laptops, ordered from china (I do not have permission to order) and needs special procedure to get it because of the activities of the indium. The liquid pro is a bit better thermal conductivity than TGC but not the best in chemical point of view.

    I can't see any liquid metal alloy that can have/reach 128 W/mK thermal conductivity with a melting point that can be used as thermal paste. Indium is solid and don't reach 90W/mK thermal conductivity.

    And you can't use it alone as liquid metal. Gallium have even a lot lower W/mK. If it was that easy it would be in production and in sale long ago by the most known brands (Coollaboratory, Phobya, Grizzly and Thermalright) who make liquid metal for this type usage.

    Der8auer the shareholder in Thermal-Grizzly is from what I know have a grade in Metallurgy.
