Yes. So far, so good - even ran the system through a combination of Cinebench R23 and Heaven Benchmark for several hours.
The way Corsair packaged these cables is a little peculiar though.

-After having tried the 2 types of gpu coolers, I would prefer to stick with hybrid cooled gpus from now on.
-I'm more interested in the RX 6800XT than RTX 3080... but the current prices are enough to make me look the other way.
-Red Team currently has that Strix LC model, but it's ugly, and - a blower fan? Why couldn't they have taken a page from EVGA's book?

@alceryes
1)Well, this did happen before a few months ago... and there's the time I spent last week replugging and reseating trying to get it to work... maybe a month?

2)US, Louisiana.

3)With it being the winter season around here, it's been sitting ~20C in my room, according to this thermometer in my room.
At the very least, the gpu core doesn't see over 40C across various loads.
Don't know what PSU you ordered. But if you are referring to RMx or RMi or HX or AXi series then yes they do that to Include In-Wire Capacitors to provide Clean, Stable and Consistent Pass-through of Electricity.

AX850 Titanium.
What I noticed is that:
-All 3 PCIe cables have two, 6+2 connectors. Like, maybe include one or 2 single 6+2 for a little cleaner cable management?
-The SATA cables(4) are all 4 connections per cable.
-Same deal with the peripheral cables(2), but there's 3 connectors.
My point was that the old Seasonic one gave me options for cleaner cable management. Oh well.

Yeah. SATA cables I really don't care for as they are in 80-90% cases Hidden. Yes managing them is bit hard. But is fine. What I really expect is to get 1 extra single ended 6+2 PCIe cable.

Still waiting here for the Evga 3060 ti ftw3 Ultra.
The database shows I have moved up some.
Maybe some got there card or got tired of waiting.
I went from 1321 to 1351 to 1371 but back down to 1361 coming down slowly is better then standing still.

Hopefully it lasts till things get back to near normal and Hopefully this isn't the New Normal for GPU's.
Take Care Guy's!!!!!!!!

I'm in the queue for a 3080 FTW3 Ultra Hybrid, but then I was reminded of Alphacool's Eiswolf kits - the 3080 compatible models launch next month - but I need to acquire a FE card...

Ugh. I guess I'll roll with which ever I can get first for the next 4 years.

Yes. But if it is already running fine with OC on. I guess no need of dropping it. But well it does decrease the risk by a bit if you drop the OC.
True, though it has been more worthwhile doing it on the old Skylake-X than the 1080Ti.

I took the PC apart and gave it a good clean:
-washed out the rads and mesh panels with soapy water, rinsed, and dried
-wiped down everything else by hand

Put it back together, fired up a game... running smooth.
I'll try Cinebench + Heaven later tonight.

If nothing else happens, I'll chalk it up to: Overclocking bad. Even good psus with long warranties don't last very long.
I didn't mess around with gpu OC much at all. I didn't see much value in it because of Gpu Boost. The cpu, on the other hand...

Nice! Definitely could've been just a little too much on the OC. The OC peak is very slippery and, over time, usually starts sliding backwards.

I've got a bit of an OC going on my new Titan Xp. The stock cooler is pretty good and I don't feel like dropping more $$$ on a new cooler so I'll probably just keep it as is. I took advantage of a pricing mistake on Amazon 'Renewed' - got a like-new Titan Xp for $600 shipped. ;)
With the 90-day no-questions-asked return policy for 'Renewed,' it was a no-risk all-reward buy.

They f'd up - plain and simple. Three days after my order (the day I received the card), the same listing more than doubled in price.
Oh, did I mention that I sold my Vega 64 for $550? :D:D:D

It was a REALLY cheap upgrade, if I do say so myself. ~30-60% performance increase AND 50% more VRAM for not a lot of $$$.

I seriously expected the order to be canceled. Even when it shipped I expected to receive something other than an actual Titan Xp.
Once I received it and verified that it was, indeed, a Titan Xp, in perfect condition, there was definitely some LOLing.

Of course, I only pulled the trigger once I realized how much I could potentially get for my Vega 64. So, I can actually say that the 'overwhelming demand and almost no supply' that we're currently experiencing is the only reason I was able to get this major performance boost for only ~$150.
