    Zotac has announced a limited-edition graphics card featuring a super-black finish. The paint job is exceptionally black, absorbing up to 99.4 percent of visible light, according to the manufacturer.

    It make miner farm more classy...
    Zotac is a no go, exept for miner where price per quantity matter, the quality of build dropped it is the worse you can get in NVidia.

    I don't own one (i more use Quadro or Radeo Pro) but i have put many from the 3000 serie on side job, when they were aviable, on PC (because it's client choise) and a good 75% come back in RMA only due to bad quality of anything exept NVidia... melted power connector, fan that slow down, stop and don't start again, attachment of the rad that is defective due to screw that have not been screwed enough in factory...
    So maybe your experience were good but on volume, it is not the same story.
    But also i agree that EVGA is worse.

    dont compare some entry/value, to what we gurus use.
    never had any problems with any xx60/xx70/xx80 in the past 10y i got for myself or customer.

    meanwhile 99.4% of cards are absorbed by miners.

    Of course that we do push some to the limit but some brand are more able to do it than some other...
    Never had issue with MSI when EVGA gave up soon... I still have an MSI GTX 260 on the wall for decorating my working place (with full VRM from 280 out of the box and waterblock from WC.DE... 110°c to 130°c in use on long period and still fonctional during last GPU shortage when i was without GPU.

    See the good side... You will be able to buy a 4060 when some will reach the store lol
    Personaly i would choise another brand for your 3060ti, i have replaced the defectives Zotac by Aorus (or Gigabyte in some country) they are more aviable right now and seem better... at least for now, no problem with them.
    MSI is a good brand, Asus a notch less...

    Oh i have no orders in i just wait till i can get one retail close~ish to msrp . Funny thing is i got that 1060 on the last legs of the last mining craze and the zotac card was 260 .. every other brand was 320 + and any radeon rx 580 or 570 500+ :p . about Gigabyte i can not say i am a fan anything gigabyte i owned or a friend owned eventually just died . Nforce 2 mb (friend owned) , 7600 gt ( mine ) z77 -ud5 (mine ) , and a friends mb on 939 slot i do not remember but especially after the z77 i will will always choose another brand instead of gigabyte always even if it means paying a bit more , that said i know that i might have been just lucky with gigabyte and the sample size of mine means nothing :p . Still choosing gb nowdays makes me really uneasy :p.
