I use Corsair coolant, had the blue for 22 months and I noticed about 3-4 stains on the CPU block, cleaned it and look like new after. I then put Corsair's clear coolant, which works great and doen't need any dyes or anything.
I don't think anyone with a brain has alleged this. Linux has far fewer viruses compared to windows (and is far more secure), but, not surprisingly, I see that all the windows white knights are here hating on Linux.
P.S. I am a windows user.
One could argue that crypto has has substantial and progressive growth over it's smaller sample of years.
I would argue there is intrinsic value. Obviously not every shit coin has the same value. But that really isn't the point of this thread.
And then there are others like me who made 900% on my money.
You think Crypto is the only volatile asset? Oil went from $60 a barrel to $15 a barrel in 2020. The DOW was between 19,000 and 30,000 in 2020.
if its a feature I dont use, why would I care? ...if I could buy a top end gaming card for 700 bucks that wont mine, I would order it today.
if it does not affect my use of the product Im fine with it
I can guarantee you I am not alone in this...
How much do you want to bet that going forward this is going to be more artificial product segmentation. Pay an extra $200 for a mining capable card vs. the non mining capable one.
Realistically though, this is nonsense. It doesn't stop mining...
I know it's rough for gamers with miners snatching the cards, but I call bullshit on that.
I do not think miners are using scripts to snatch cards (instead scalpers are doing that). I think Nvidia is selling those cards to miners directly.
Do note that not all RTX30xx laptop are create equal as there are different power version from 80W to 105W to 130W for the 3070 for example. I settled for the Gigabyte Aorus 15G XC with the 3070 at 105W. Didn't want the 3080 or the 130W version...
