  1. Personally, I would save the money and get the NVIDIA 3080 Ti with 12 GB. Mine works very well and is very fast.
  2. Here's what I was taught in Graduate School Architectural Design: The Mansard roof, started in the 1600’s in France. It was named after the architect François Mansart. It resulted from a tax evasion scheme where property owners were taxed by the number of floors in their building below the roof line. The Mansard style of roof made the top floor liveable – and tax free. If it was shingled, it was a roof, not an additional floor.
  3. A little off topic but does anyone know why Mansard roofs were first created? I do, I let you know after your comments.
  4. I filed a RMA with MSI for replacement.
  5. My has fans front, back and top. So it was just the liquid cooling that failed. The case is cool.
  6. I also have a 3080 Ti, but it has its own cooling system. I should get the computer back tomorrow. Good to know you can confirm possible liquid cooling problems.
  7. My MSI Desktop, eight month old, shut down without warning. It wouldn't turn back on. I waited 15 min and it booted up. I check internal temperatures and the CPU was 98º C, so I shut it down. I took it to a local computer medic and he said the cooling system failed. It is water cooled. He said water cooling was a good idea but he's seen plenty of them fail. He's installing an air cooled system. Labor & material = $100. So if you're ordering a new machine, you may want to save the extra money and avoid liquid cooling of the CPU.
  8. My system is very quick. MSI CPU Intel Core™ i7-12700K 8P+4EC/20T 3.6-5.0 GHz 25MB Cache CHIPSET Intel® Z690 MOTHERBOARD MSI Z690 CPU COOLING Liquid 240 GRAPHICS NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X MEMORY 64 GB DDR5 4800Mhz
  9. I use APC. I have a 1500VA on each computer and a smaller 600VA on the modem and network. They are very reliable Look at the VAH (volt amp hours) on the batteries, that will determine how long each one will last. Comparing CyberPower to APC, you'll find APC has the larger battery even though both are rated 1500VA
  10. Thanks for your help, entering a high number of lites like 8 & 14 fixes it.
  11. In X14, I don't see a difference between normal and Prairie
  12. If you want to get serious about Monitor, and Printer Calibration, I can help. It can be as simple as changing your monitor color profile. Windows 11 > Settings > System > Display > Color Profile. Try Adobe RGB or sRGB to start out, try others. It can be a very involved subject with plenty to learn. One subject is ICC Profiles, ICC (International Color Consortium). The ICC sets international standards for color. You can purchased gear to create custom ICC Profiles for your monitor and printer. If you do, your equipment will match everyone else in the world, who also has calibrated devices. X-Rite i1Display Pro is the professional standard. You may be able to find an older model cheap, the XRite Color Monkey. If you want to learn more, just ask.
  13. You can, but why do it with the low cost of a second drive ?
  14. In all these years of using Chief, I've never done it from the Library. I tried your method and it worked well. Thank You.
