Technically all 3060's are LHR. If you have the older, I believe pre-May chipset you can use the "accidentally" leaked beta driver that fully unlocks hashrate on it.

its better to buy the non upgraded stock cooler and upgrade to noctua, move the cheap fan as side exhaust
tons of videos online.
Also, the Grub screws now ship to canada, (if u see that video)
videos of what? spending money on Noctua for i5 11400?

even intel stock cooler can do the job, it's a 11400

Is this not a better deal if you add a 3060 ti for $100 more and use email sign up coupon with Rakuten?

stop spreading false info just because you watch a video that is not even relevant.

In the video, its i7 11700.

In this post, once again its i5 11400.

Yes it is! 10% coupon works! So you can get 16gb ram and 512gb SSD for $50 extra.

You're 100% right, the numbers and results of FPS that this guy and all the others that have bothered testing these awful things will be even lower than reported.

Also the $100 for ram is a rip off.

You could add 1 8GB of ram, but you'd be spending maybe $40 or 50, when you can buy GOOD ram for about $80.

This deal is not great overall, considering the i5 and the crappy PSU that is hard to find a replacement for and only 8gb of ram AND NON SSD HDD.

the beauty of this deal (not saying its great comparing to the deals earlier this year) is that this i5 11400 doesnt require any Cooling/PSU upgrade, the stock cooler and PSU is perfectly fine for i5 nonK + low end 3060ti; plus the default config. 8GB + no SSD gives users room to buy whatever cheap RAM and SSD they want/already have. It's perfect for low budget gamers who can NOT find a cheap video card forever.

Used 2933 RAM is very cheap, tons available online

I agree, i have some spare SSDs laying around, the 1 gig 7200rpm will just become extra storage. so just some extra ram is all that is needed.

this will be a incremental upgrade to my current 1070 setup for use with 1440p since my next upgrade will likely be when 4k 144hz becomes mainstream (probably when 4080ti comes out?) :)

I don't think that's a problem with the 3060 Tis. Yes, Dell makes them, but are based on the Nvidia reference design.
I had a couple (the non-LHR ones) in Spring and they were great. I sold one to a guy that mentioned he bought at least 50 of them for mining.

Dell has their own "brand" usually made by MSI.

meh. maybe with a 10% discount code it would be worth it but it doesn't work. these deals suck this year. screw nvidia and this price gouging.

I see they're trying to offload all the RTX 3050 Ti 4GB garbage.

4k 144hz still has a long way...

i sit far away from the monitor so 27" 1440P is perfect for me.

(BTW you can sell your 1070 for BIG money now)
