Went into Ajax store and it was pretty tame. Fairly busy with no lines

How the hell is there a line of like 30 people in Newmarket?

Getting the ismart for my mom, could have bought online but didn't want to wait and see if I could pick up the adata....

Moving pretty fast though. No line once I left. Adata oos. ismart might be oos also as they said they had one when they went to get mine. But there is a lot of stock online.

My comment was only towards the Team Group SSDs.

For those wondering about the $300 gc with the purchase of a TV, it's shady/false advertising and doesn't apply to the TV's on the flyer. Apparently only to one specific Samsung TV that the location didn't have in stock anyways.

When I type in gtx 1070 fan issues seems evga also pops up, along with gigabyte. So I guess it's a bit of gamble either way.
You end up going with either? I'm debating pulling the trigger on the EVGA 1070. Friends have it and have no complaints thus far.

I would have been all over that EVGA 1070ti but it was sold out as soon as the deal popped up online.

Picked up the gigabyte. On new eggs there's 83% on 4 and 5 star reviews which I quantify as possible 17% chance of failure over 303 reviews. Evga is about 13% I think. But canada computer has some pretty good rma policy so it's worth it for me to get the gigabyte. If I was buying from newegg I wouldve gone with evga just based on the rma policy. Gonna install and see how I do today.

Update:

Card works great, no coil whine with a corsair 760 ax power supply. No loud fan noise, didn't use the gigabyte software. The power ribbons are not hitting the fans, ran stress test and no problems at all.

boxing day win!

Glad to hear! I'd be interested to see if it lasts. From what I've heard, the fans are terrible.

Do they accept open-box returns for things like keyboards and mice?

This "cheap fan syndrome" is getting really old, and someone needs to flog those idiot bean counters who buy absolute China-junk in order to save a quarter-penny a unit and increase their annual bonus. It's not like the cooling fan is important right? :facepalm:

I just returned a no-name default Dell case fan that whined like an old lady, and the replacement Sunon is silent as death.

Haha I'm out of luck. My local store in Markham is sold out.

I was going to order it off Amazon, but doesn't come with the games (and had no MIR).

Newegg has it in stock but no MIR either.

Edit: Newegg just sold out apparently
