    I managed to snag a 3080FE a couple days after the launch. Yesterday I put the whole computer out of my window to take advantage of the cold weather.
    Managed to OC the 3080 to +280 core and +850 mem. It now boosts stably to 2250mhz :D

    Wish i had LN2 equipment to truly test the chip.

    I didn't buy it when it was just put on sale. Now the price of 30 series graphics cards in my country is too high to afford.

    I think you mean Ethereum miners. Bitcoin needs asic miners and Ether works with GPUs They say it willl stop next month. It was suppossed to be from 24 June but no, mining is still profitable (but half as it was last month anyway). We will see a drop in the prices in the next months, also many second hand ones. Hopefully
