    Have the same. Still a kick ass performing card for the 4lb size.

    PSA: Nvidia Warns People To Update GPU Drivers Because of Security Problems

    Very helpful in their push to get people to update drivers so they can further restrict mining!

    11900K Benched

    Yup...basically the same CPU but I like the binned aspect and ABT!

    11900K Benched

    Good move! If I didn't buy a kit to get a 3080 I'd be standing pat, myself. Lots of cool stuff to shakeout later this year and next year (as always though, haha)!

    11900K Benched

    Yes, lots of choices dictated to me by the kit, but I did my best to change it up! Believe it or not, as much as I drop on builds, not a believer in big, bad mobos, anymore. Back in the day I would ball out with the big dog boards (my MSI X99A-XPOWER just died last week - RIP) but since SLI is...

    11900K Benched

    I'm real happy with my choice to wait for the 11900K over getting a 10900K. It's worth it, IMO. Boosts to 5.3 GHz with ABT (ASUS Z590-E with latest beta firmware). Using 980 Pro NVMEs. Pic here -...

    EVGA GTX 1060 6G "Mining" $499.99 B-Stock

    Yup - it was about $300 more expensive than other B-stock 1060 6GB cards in stock at the time (I have Distill monitoring EVGA B-stock but I'm no longer in the market for a card so it is curiosity these days - even saw a B-stock 3090 FTW3 the other day for $1849!)

    Just in - Hope for an end to the GPU shortage comes from an unexpected source

    Right - that's why these are for sale now - versus in December. They made good money, now they're balancing the risk of ETH 2.0 to capitlize further.

    Just in - Hope for an end to the GPU shortage comes from an unexpected source

    Yes, just like GPUs - they print money so why would you sell them? If you decide to sell them - there's a reason - a high price or that future profitability does not look as good (ETH 2.0).

    First "Custom" Water Cooling (Hard Tubing) Build - System No Longer will Power On

    Build complete - very glad that I upgraded to the Z590-E. Alex at Micro Center Saint Louis Park, MN did an awesome job with the water cooling. I swapped an AX1500i PSU into this bad boy to replace the "meh" EVGA 850 Gold. :) (128GB kit also had issues so I returned those and got a 32GB kit -...

    Performance-PCs.com is scalping RTX cards

    Not sure it counts as scalping if they're letting the market decide via bidding. There is no "Buy it Now" option that I saw?
