    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    I have not seen this, other options are to either turn on vertical sync and force the frame rate or use chill which is a better option. If you have a 144hz monitor, use chill to control between 140fps-144fps as an example. If you would, list the games you have problems with, to see if we can...

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    6900XT my vote over the 3080 mostly because of the ram. Been playing Farcry 6 with raytracing at 4K with HDR on the 6900XT -> ABSOLUTLY beautiful! Ram usage is almost up to 16gb. On my 3080Ti, not all the high res textures are loaded, so when you go up close to some of the objects they are low...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    I would not call it flawed at all but limited on water cooling options. Looks to be a great air cooling solution with exception of newer GPU coolers with some having less efficiency with being vertically mounted.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    I usually keep cases for a long time and having options for longer video cards is preferred. The issue of some vertical mounted GPUs having poor cooling makes this case design not as useful as before. I prefer not to dump hotter air into a case if possible. This design needs better water-cooling...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    How thick of a radiator can one put on the bottom? Plus can the hot air from a bottom radiator blow down and out of the case while the bottom fans blow cool air up into the case? Good place for custom loop pump and reservoir? Under power supply removing the drive cage? 280w Threadripper stock...

    DIY thermal paste

    Pretty cool, still, does the differences really make a big difference? Looks like any of the ones tested (actual paste and not food products) will work just fine for 99.99% of folks is my thoughts. Would have liked to have seen some of the liquid metal interfaces tested as well.

    Scalpers Flip DDR5 RAM on eBay for Up to $2,500

    I figure a DDR 5 system for me in 2024, second to third generation of motherboards out, DDR5 more plentiful hopefully at speeds showing the real capability of DDR5. I just don't see any use case for me, that makes DDR5 worth while. As for the Scalpers, I put blame on Ebay giving them this huge...

    Question about Threadripper Pro processors

    AMD has not officially announced anything yet dealing with Threadripper 5000 series or if they will go straight to 6000 series. Threadripper Pro 5000 series leak/rumour may exist but then it could also turn into a 6000 series skew, who knows besides AMD and a few others about what is coming? If...

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    First good advice, yes I don't keep anything substantial on an exchange except maybe Coinbase for long periods of time. No I don't recommend using an exchange for long term or even medium term storage. Mine RTM, accumulate a batch, exchange for what I want either put in wallet or convert into $.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    Basically if one is going to liquidate the coins, going to an exchange directly can be the cheapest, fastest route with less chance of an issue due to less steps involved. Of course a bad exchange, pool etc. can always cause issues due to theft or incompetence. These risks will sometimes play...

    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    So basically a modest reduction in price with a collapse of the largest mining market at the time. The estimate is ~25% of sells in general for 2021, at least 1qtr, went to mining cards. If half of those went up for sell, would it really drive the price down much? Probably not. Other bigger...

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    Please share your infinite knowledge then, why not go straight to an exchange if I am going to convert to another coin that I want more? There is a cost going to a wallet and then from the wallet to an exchange which I am saving on. Going to a wallet straight, which I do for coins I want to keep...

    Not sure if anyone here has a crystal ball. If, dollar goes up, bonds -> 10y and 20 y treasury goes up substantially and crude oil drops -> expect a pretty big market correction/crash -> people will need money to live, food, place to stay, gas, all the normal stuff that most Crypto can't buy...

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    This is with NBMiner, your using T-Rex? Seems like as the miners get more updates, the HR just keeps getting higher.

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    I get 87mh/s when I push the memory on the 3080Ti. Settings as shown, this is a stable small variance hashrate, no drops less than a few mhs. It has less variance then my 3090. This is with RTM being mined by all 16 threads of the 5800x. Beginning to think there must be different variations...

    HP Reverb G2

    I see $499, says instant $50 but does not appear in basket upon checkout. Am I missing something, initially it indicated $449 until added to the basket then it goes up to $499. Now for sneak peek Black Friday it says $499 -> looks like the deal went away, I missed it by seconds so it seems.

    AMD working their driver magic!

    I've own both, same time, Nvidia and AMD cards, over a decade, over time, time and time again, AMD cards do indeed start closing any gap or expand lead as newer games are released, depending upon the game. Call it whatever one wants, AMD usually stands the test of time.

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    AMD recommends good TAA as well, meaning their is a temporal component for the game frame being resolved. Yes no AI for that frame but in most cases there is TAA being done with motion vectors. In addition, any developer can add onto the code for their game and make it better due to being open...

    Quest 2 usb c problems

    Oh, so when plugged into the PC it does not supply power to the headset or keep the battery charged. Am I missing something here? As a note, last night spent over 5 hours on the VP2, sitting watching 3d videos. 3d videos in my opinion are just too gimmicky, so many of them just had to throw...

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    Great video, looks like you do not need to press control + L, that works as well but just L will also lock the frequency/voltage. Just tried it. Unless your bios is somewhat funky :( and forces GPU to follow the curve.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    It is mostly luck unless the pool is messing up. I've been through this before. I also had it where a pool was like hitting lucky 7 every few moments too just dumping coins at you. Also I've been through a 21 billion coin, ETN, it behaved similar to what I am seeing here. A big jump several...

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    These types of multi algorithmic algorithms makes it very hard to optimize, while I did nothing to improve the speed, now the average hashrate skyrocketed, comparing snipped state below to the one I posted earlier. It can and will go the other way as well as a note. Doing fine tuning is almost...

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    For clarification set power limit to default, not negative or positive from stock in other words don't touch it. Core frequency should be set constant, does not change even at idle, for example always indicating 1100mhz or whatever value you set. If it is fluctuating then you did not lock it to...

    yep, that was it, Memory Isolation killed the performance with the 5800x for RTM, now avg of 1.95kh/s vice 818h/s, since this coin uses multi different algorithms, only averages can be used for performance measurements. Not sure how much can be optimized for these processors: Now going on a...

    Unmineable

    ah, like Nicehash except you get to pick the coin you want for payment. Not a bad idea. Now I normally rather mine a coin directly. Keep an eye on this for some history. Obviously the provider is making some money doing this meaning you get less like in Nicehash.

    About 3 hours or so on the 5800x. Ram is 3200 CL 14 running at 3600mhz I do believe at Cas 16, may have to check bios to make sure it is 1:1, also check memory speeds. This machine is also mining ETH with the 3080Ti, wonder if LHR is consuming excess CPU power to overcome LHR. Since wife is...

    Getting 83mh/s on 3080Ti LHR using NBMiner (Use NBMiner! Latest). This is for ETH. Power limit settings is most likely one of the triggers looked at for LHR. Try this, use MSI AB, this is what I do: Set power limit to zero (Edit: meaning don't touch it, leave it at default, you will be...

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    Not sure why the 5800x is doing so poorly here, what the Pool is seeing, avg rates. Even the 2700 beats it. The 3900x and 3960x looks good. 5800x, standard tune, using cpuminer-zen3.exe. Should I use cpuminer-avx2.exe instead?
