Pros: -All of my hardware is working well with this board -Temps on the board are very cool -Very sturdy. This thing is built like a tank!
Cons: -Bluetooth will not work with any of my BT devices. -Gigaybyte RGB Fusion software crashes my PC
Overall Review: Very nice board, overall. Lots of features that I haven't had time to play around with.
Wattage and junction temps too high
Pros: It kind of runs one game: Borderlands 3
Cons: -Won't run New World MMO without crashing - May be a coding issue -Wattage is peaking at 350 to 380. -Junction temps are maxing out over 100 C -I had to lower the voltage to 60% to play Borderlands 3 without crashing -There's something funky going on with these 30 series cards and their power handling, but I cannot figure it out. -Gigabyte's RGB Fusion blue screened my PC until I uninstalled it.
Overall Review: I would hold off on purchasing a 30 series card for now, or at least until this whole chip shortage is over with. I am thinking that quality control is overwhelmed with the demand for GPUs at the moment. Side note. I have removed the 3080 and am now running my RTX 2060 with zero issues.
