    RIPPPPPP EVGA cancelled the order. They said it was an error of it being in stock.

    Might just return the CPU and take a hit at this point. Can't find any mATX boards for cheap

    @Robbo99999

    So I think the game does use a lot of CPU.

    I found this video of exactly what I was looking for. He runs 4K/1440P/1080P with and without DLSS. At 1440P, and 1080P his system is literally micro stuttering, and GPU usage is dropping down in to the high 70’s % usage range.

    That’s with a 3900X but, it starts to waste GPU power at 1440P, and even worse at 1080P. With just a 2080 Super.

    I reserved one, I am debating going and grabbing it. $809 for a 10980xe retail box and brand new is a really, really good deal. But I don't think I will because I enjoy my 10900K and would rather wait for next gen X series at this point. DDR5 and hopefully a next gen HEDT are coming 2021.

    Idk if I want a used eBay board for a brand new $1,000 CPU I was planning to keep for awhile.

    The EVGA Micro2 was $109.99 new with 3 year warranty. Waiting to see if the company charges any fees for returns. Really wanted X299 set-up but it was not meant to be.

    Yep I registered my dark, it has like 670 days left.

    This is why used non working evga 2080Ti’s with warranty stickers on it fetch a premium. Because you can get it fixed by evga. Just make sure to see exact photos, and serial numbers for future reference.

    Evga is great. And my next expensive GPU will more than likely be a evga. Whenever I eventually decide to upgrade from my 2080Ti FE.

    My first 2080Ti was a Gigabyte Windforce, I received the card, and it was artifacting like a beast. “This has been a few months ago” “Common issue with early 2080Ti’s” “Space invader artifacting”

    Gigabyte pretty much told me to suck it. Very upsetting news..And it took them weeks just to tell me that lol.

    The platform for gaming in 2020 has become very viable. Much more so than when it released. The performance I see out of (18) cores in the game Death Stranding is just ridiculous. It uses every thread to 50+% capacity and even higher in some cases.

    I am however looking forward to a
    next gen HEDT platform. Hopefully they release one.

    X99 came at the beginning of DDR4, so I hope intel does it again.
