Re: I see you guys have slowed down a bit. crypto mining anyone?

I look at it as it covers my entire AC bill. My bill with mining, using AC. Fridge, stove, oven, toaster oven etc. All stays about 80 per month and the PC covers it. Last March my bill was 70 and I don't think it was as hot as this year. This year was 89. I don't think the total cost will go above ...

Re: Win 10 Startup Error Messege

I would check the list of programs that are starting with windows itself in msconfig and see if one looks troubling (malware, etc). If not I would try and load each of the programs manually (should not be that many) until that error shows. From what I was reading it can be cause by a 32bit dll in a ...

Re: I see you guys have slowed down a bit. crypto mining anyone?

How much extra power is it drawing and costing on your electric bill though?

90 a month seems too small to worry about to me...Now if you could make $3000+ a month I would be all on board!

Re: A New Media Center (For A New Age)

Explanations are my low point, sorry! I meant that plex is worthless to me since it (like you said) does not trans-code when you have enough bandwidth and when you don't have the bandwidth it just looks awful to me on my 50" plasma, which is still only 720p. I could get a better encode from han...

Re: A New Media Center (For A New Age)

I tell people to avoid Tivo and Plex :-k

I dont like plex just because it degrades the quality and is worthless on a home network when you have DLNA.

I hope it works great for you!!!

I love MakeMKV. I have not bought it yet, just keep using the free key they provide while in beta.

Re: Inno3D GTX 1070 Accelero Hybrid S

How much for the old card? Doubt I can afford it but it never hurts to inquire.

Wonder if I could figure out how to mod or make something to watercool it....my tinkering mind wants to know lol

Re: I see you guys have slowed down a bit. crypto mining anyone?

Still around just forums have slowed down. I have never done any mining at all. I used to do the folding@home project back in the day but that was all. I always thought mining was something for people who already had a lot of computers to try and get money rather than a single computer. Just doesn't...

Personally... I think this should be an OEM focused product that is pushed onto Dell, HP, ASUS and those guys for pre-built systems. It does make a nice upgrade for budget HDD based systems. It's just not a product for the DIY PC builder that knows what they are doing. *drops mic* Hell yes, that wo...

Re: Intel Core i7-7700k versus AMD Ryzen 1700X 14 Game CPU Showdown

Now for a video/photo compression/editing comparison! Plus real world business apps like LibreOffice/Excel/etc. Also, why are people shouting AMD? The Intel cpu is cheaper and hangs right with it....... I was really excited for Ryzen at first but it seems only the very high end chip (1800 I think) c...

I commented on the review also and probably will piss Intel off but it is priced WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too high to be worthwhile for anything but a system you already have built but decided not to put a SSD in it. Price of lower capacity SSD drives is lower than these modules and you could use it the sa...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

You can try wiping all drivers, then installing the older one and barring Windows from updating them. Done tried that but I cant get windows to stop changing the driver since it is "incompatible". I am looking at just buying a usb-gigabit or *gasp* expresscard-gigabit. I should just buy a...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

Reinstalled windows and same problem. It seems maybe the driver from Windows 7 that was in the system before the upgrade may have caused it to stay at gig speeds but then windows updated the driver and there was no going back....??? I am going to try and get linux to boot from the disc (thought I ha...

Can't get Blu-ray drive to work so gonna try and reinstall windows from external hard drive. I never even thought of the Linux try! That's where I found out the drive was roast, trying my Linux mint dvd.

Ok so short and sweet, my laptop is hardwired ad has a gigabit card in it that I would always connect to my network at gigabit speeds.
