Re: Is mining on a single RX580 worth it?

I realy hope that this whole mining bull**** goes down the drain as soon as possible. It should of never existed. Multiple GPU prices for the last few years now + humongous waste of electric power. It's disgusting. :vom:

Nice review. Too bad we didn't have much if any of WC cooling articles when the forums were still alive and kicking.

Re: APC Back-UPS 550 Finally Giving Scream of Death After 7 Years

Yes, I know lots of fakes. There is a chinese saying: "If you can con them, do it". This is theft. I always said thiefs should be hanged like they used to. Anyway, I always buy it on e-bay, look at ratings first, read reviews and if there is still a problem, than there is e-bay's money back garantie.

Re: APC Back-UPS 550 Finally Giving Scream of Death After 7 Years

I would try e-bay first. Look for an aftermarket battery from china. They are usualy pretty good and cost fraction of the price with shipping incl.

Re: New system

Hm, the second pic is a clear improvement but I would just hide them more and tubeshrink the rest (not each one separetely but rather combining the ones that go in one direction) in one color, to make it nicer. As for airflow this already does the job.

Re: Bios reset problem

BTW, I had to hunt for some DDR2 4GB 1066Mhz RAM kit, since the 2GB were not enough for some games (ex. Subnautica). Now with the OC'd CPU, GTX 660Ti and DDR2 4GB 1066Mhz RAM (800Mhz is not enough, 'cause of the CPU OC, that raises the RAM speed as well) My sons rig is pretty good now :) It runs pre...

Re: Still Rocking The i7 2600k

Make sure the VRM's are not overheating. They can also heat up the MOBO around them and transfer more heat to the CPU, so if you lower the VRM's temps the CPU heat will also more likely be lower. I would also not go above 60C. I still have the 2500K @ 4.5Ghz and am happy with the performance. I used...

Re: Make your Rig a True 4K Gaming PC for the Holidays

So the only way it's worth to buy a 4K monitor is if we also get a 1080ti. Otherwise I'm better off with a 144hz, 1ms gaming monitor @ fullHD and everything on max, running @ 125-160fps.

The best gaming mouse I've ever used and great for everything else! Get it and you will not be disappointed. I did extensive research before getting it and did compare it to many other good ones.

Than I bought a separate PCI ethernet card with a single LAN port. Still nothing. There is no yellow...

Re: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and Threadripper 1920X Processor Review

It seems now you could just sell your mining rigs, get one Threadripper unit, swap in 4 VEGA's and have about the same amount of mining units done. I read VEGA can do 100MH/s+/card. You could save a lot of power and heat this way. :rolleyes:

$1700 and $2000 for the i9? I hope their sales just go down the drain! These greedy bastards are the responsible for top CPU prices going over $1000 in the first place! It looks like the $290 Ryzen 1700 is the best price/performance winner anyway! Good job AMD! Great, very well written review Nate! ...
