    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    It sends you back whenever you enter a code to make it less ideal trying to spam different ones for the best price. It used to just let you apply it but they changed it in the last week.

    Oh Snap, Won Newegg Shuffle....To Buy or not to buy

    Thats fair, I would think its more likely eventually nvidia stops caring and releases an unlimited driver when eth finally goes POS, at that point it wont matter.

    Oh Snap, Won Newegg Shuffle....To Buy or not to buy

    We haven't seen any other LHR cards yet, so of course not. Just notating that its not a if, but a when, it will be cracked.

    Oh Snap, Won Newegg Shuffle....To Buy or not to buy

    iirc its supposed to get about 66 mh/s but still at 240w its pretty horrendous, would be better to mine cfx or erg at that point that said, how long til nvidia makes another oopsie with the drivers

    what is a PICe Riser Cable 1X to 16X extension for GPU Mining adapter card?

    I suppose I did, I was going off the original title that was asking essentially what the risers were used for (mining) which has very low bandwidth requirement. Was just trying to say it doesn't have to be a dedicated mining board to be used efficiently.

    what is a PICe Riser Cable 1X to 16X extension for GPU Mining adapter card?

    I disagree, any board with at least 4 or 5 slots is great for mining still as long as its recent enough to have 4g decoding (iirc its z270 and newer). That will allow the cheap 1 to 4 adapters to be used like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CWPWDF8 A normal motherboard can provide a...

    RTX 3060 12GB

    1) install the card directly in a pcie x16 slot 2) locate and install the dev driver without the limiter 3) either plug in a monitor or a dummy hdmi adapter 4) configure your OC undervolt settings 5) mine away at about 47mh/s

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    Problem for alot of folks is the 30 series cards are already almost comically long, the powerlink puts it off the end of the board instead of behind it. Even in the example above you couldnt fit a powerlink in that sliver of space, but the 180 degree connectors fit.

    All of them now show None for the Earliest ETA, looks like they stopped trying to guess at the arrival.

    Best OS or NAS OS to run Plex, Emby, or Jellyfin off of ?

    The lowest profile option is docker container on linux if you're not doing anything fancy like nvenc transcoding or otherwise. None of the other OS's run it better persay you just may have lower resource overhead with a linux flavor.

    Microcenter has dropped price ...AMD 5800x $429

    Frankly for the price difference I'd probably still go with a 10600k if I was shopping for a 6c/12t. Its 90$ less and pretty equivalent speed wise and with overclocking might even be a bit faster, you just gotta deal with the extra heat. Same goes for the 5800x, the 10850k is 110$ less and on par.

    GPU Prices dropping?

    You dont, really just check it, it only starts Monday - Friday from 9:00am PT – 11:00am PT and goes for a few couple of hours then the drawings are fulfilled around 2-4 PT. (you get an email if you didnt win a drawing)

    GPU Prices dropping?

    The biggest question is are the chips made here? If they are they can avoid that 25% price hike. Thats the only way I think they're going to be competitive, on margins they'll be the new amd, not the fastest available but fast enough and dirt cheap.

    Anyone here used Vetroo case or aio?

    I bought the white version of this as I love the size and white aesthetic, gonna test it out on my 9900k for fun to see how it does, then stick it on my wife's 3600.

    Suggestions for compact case with 360mm Rad and 320mm GPU support

    What motherboard do you have dexvx? If its a matx or itx you can fit a 360mm in the top of the o11-d mini if you move board down a section. Addtionally they're releasing a snow all white version either this month or next, the only drawback is you need a SFX PSU.

    Does TRIM effectively does the same thing as permanently deleting data?

    This, garbage collecting is what technically deletes the blocks that trim marks as unused when the machine is idle.

    Craigslist finds

    Really? The way I interpret the changes is just the transactional stuff is going to be revamped. That doesn't look like it largely affects the mining directly yet.

    Meshify Mini C microatx king?

    I’m waiting on the o11-d mini snow edition, only drawback is the sfx psu requirement if you’re going for a beefy build.

    Best cooler for 9900k, that 57mm or shorter?

    Here's a few options for ya depending on the noise/quality of the fan you could replace the ID Cooling's fan with a better noctua or scythe fan for better performance/noise: 55mm tall ~ 130w TDP ~ ID-COOLING IS-60 - https://www.newegg.com/p/2RM-00AP-00094 47mm ~ 115w TDP ~ CRYORIG C7 Cu (same...

    Dell Poweredge r720xd - any reason to go to latest BIOS?

    Its gonna do that due to the chip spectre/meltdown vulnerability, you either have to disable hyper threading or accept that risk (you can turn off the warning). We decided to accept the risk at work as it wasn't acceptable to cut the thread count workload capability for internal servers.

    CPU for a home server/mining rig/second box for 24/7 uptime

    If I was to do this myself, I'd get a combo like this (offering like $280): https://ebay.us/QPApDj Install unraid on a flash drive setup the disks I wanted for the array, (maybe add a SSD for the VMs) pass through the GPU to a VM for the mining then lastly run plex as a docker container

    If I wanted to make my own Plex/Emby/Jellyfin Server for fun what would be the best way ?

    CPU for a home server/mining rig/second box for 24/7 uptime

    ECC helps with overall stability and reduced potential of crashes or data corruption. Server components have the same building blocks as standard desktop hardware (ram, mobo, cpu, power, etc) First questions are: How many drives are you looking to have in your file server How much compute power...
