Yeah a new 3090Ti for 2k or a used 3090 for 750, wonder which I'd choose :p

But yes, the fans are obviously making a fair bit of noise to keep temps under control that's basically what I meant.

Just noticed something amusing whilst playing Forza Horizon 5: the 3090Ti is so under-utilized running this game at Ultra/1440p/60fps settings that it doesn't even bother kicking in the 3D clocks (and I didn't notice whilst playing either) - to get the card to actually do some work, I have to run the game at 4k/unlocked framerate :D

Quite common with a lot of games ive noticed on my 3090, its pretty frustrating when its not maxxing out your settings at 4k/120 but the clock refuses to budge past 1300 or something and your only getting 90-100fps.

Hmm... I've not actually had that issue when gaming at 4k with the FPS unlocked - in this particular case with Forza, clearly the 3090Ti can output 1440p/60 without having to raise its clocks. What CPU are you using? Could that be the bottleneck? Have you tried a fixed clock with Afterburner to see if it improves the framerate?

Huh. I'd be curious to know what those games are - driver issue?
Sounds like a 6950XT would absolutely ****ing bury that card in real life scenerios ;)
Nice trolling! :D In my case (Forza) I'd imagine the 6900/6950 would behave similarly, otherwise it'd just be maintaining high clocks and using more power for zero gain.

The 3090 FE just couldn't keep up with the 6950 XT, so it was time to call in some reinforcements.

One for the ROH please @Kaapstad. :)

The cooler is good, very quiet indeed compared to the FE.

Much quieter, for sure, just like me , you have your energy monitored with the smart meter app, not that bad when gaming but when benchmarking, obviously runs at full power, then it gets a bit scary

This is not my fault... :D
It was basically a free upgrade, so I couldn't really say no could I.

Stable under volt that I'm happy with.
This reduces the power draw by around 140w and the GPU core temp down by 16c from the out-of-the-box default.

0.900mv
1950mhz
59c
316w PD
70.3% of TDP
63% Fan speed (1500rpm)
