    Yeah I thought the price was too low being MSI's best card and all. So I ordered 2 to be sure.
    The new price is insane though.

    If it's pretty much all the same to you i'd go for strix as i imagine all components will be high-grade.

    Went mad and grabbed the Rog Strix (same as my MB) I was getting a bit concerned as there were not many other cards in stock also.
    Found a review comparing the Strix to the MSI

    This video covers the various power limits and vrm setups on all the cards. The Strix card is unquestionably not worth the extra money. Here you have to pay 40% more than the cheapest card(Zotac) and you gain about 4% performance.
    Even though it runs cooler, it has idiot stamped all over it, depending on what prices you operate with.

    About 90% of the cards aren't available

    Hi

    I have ASUS DUAL RTX 3060 ti. My PSU is old 750W PSU. Sometimes, when starting some games (Metro Exodus, Anno 1800, Cyberpunk 2077) on highest settings with Raytracing on (no DSSL) all PC shoot's down. When running Furmark or other system burning software no issues. Or when running mentioned games with DSSL no issues. Is it my 750W PSU too weak or problem is somewhere else??? Futuremark test pass no problem. When I lock GPU frequencies with ASUS GPU TweakII also no problems. In game OSD shows 1980Mhz GPU frequency when turbo frequency of the card is 1710Mhz. Is it normal?

    750W is overkill. Your card can't pull more than 200W, 216W if you increase power limit. Even with a different bios it wouldn't be able to pull more than 225W.
    Sounds to me like you have a CPU overheating issue. You can monitor this when you load a game with MSI Afterburner for example.

    GPU boosting past the listed frequency is normal. New cards overclock themselves.

    How old is your PSU? What brand etc.

    My PSU is about 7 years old, don't remember brand. Earlier i have GTX 760 with no problems with two 8-pin power connections (3060 ti have only one 8-pin connection). PC shooting down only occurs when i installed RTX 3060 ti. Realy no CPU oweheating. I try burning benchmarks-no problem. Also is interesting I installed insider 465.21 driver and Nvidia control panel system information shows DX feature level 12_1 only, while Dxdiag shows 12_2???

    Hi Danny, mostly Cold War and still a bit of BF5. I play Forza Horizon 4 as well but that ran well maxed out on my 1660 already

    Try undervolting the GPU to find out if its PSU load related issue, why it happens during playing those games is because the loads fall on both CPU and GPU at same time. With undervolting you can reduce GPU power draw upto 100W with no change to gpu core frequency and stability. You can find guides on youtube or you can ask any one of us here.

    Managed to improve my graphics score a little, with 13376 I'm top 49 (searching in leaderboard mode and sorting by graphics score), thanks 20°C ambient temp instead of 30°C lol (2130-2145Mhz core, 8200Mhz mems)

    I'm not top 1 with my CPU/GPU combo, because the his CPU nets him like 7000 score score lol. upload_2021-1-31_14-33-12.png
