Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I don't think I would want to deploy a large quantity of them. I need to keep transitioning to more powerful GPUs as I am space and power constrained at this point. Really the interesting unit is the P104-100, at least you get 1070 level performance with it. But those are not as common.

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I'm trying to win a few of those 1060 "mining only, no video output" cards myself. let me know how well they do. I'm trying to build a rig with 8 of them. I finally had a chance to get it setup tonight. So far - I'm pretty impressed. I paid $54 including tax and shipping. I have it currently in an ...

Icecold , yes, I bought it on the [H] forum. Seller seems legit, he was very responsive and has some other Nvidia 10 series cards as well. I'm needing to move up from 1070-level performance though as I have power constraints now. What I'd like to see are cards like 2070 Super and 2080 come down to ...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I bought one of those output-less miner cards that was supposed to be the equivalent of a 1070, but was not able to get it to work. Probably it was just defective, but I'm afraid to try again.

Re: Broke my phone pretty badly...

I'm sure they run into plenty of people who are dumb or don't want the hassle of swapping. I guess I can't blame them for trying to max out profits, but one has to wonder if it's a kind of racket where they send whatever is in stock even if it's wrong and try to fix it later.

Never heard of them but I feel for you. I got a new phone a few weeks back and it arrived without the case that I ordered, but I activated it and used it anyway. Within two days the slim slippery sucker had fallen out of my pocket and I ran it over with a creeper. Broke the screen, first time for me...

Third, there remains the question whether or not Asian* cryptotoken mining farms will consider the 30 series useful for themselves ( * = i.e. the ones which would wheel truckloads of devices right out of the back gates of the factories). I'm not up to date if these farms are fully working with ASIC...

Used Nvidia GPU Market

As more info comes out about the highly disruptive RTX 3000 series release, I've heard that many 2080ti owners are dumping their GPUs, but the information available makes it seem as if they would need to be had for less than $500 to be a good value. They are nowhere near that right now, afaict. It'd...

Re: Hardware RIP Thread

Just the CPU, though the radiator is fairly large. It's the same setup that I did a little build thread on back on AT, I think you saw it. Seems to be humming along nicely, and I like that it is PWM. Maybe that will help the pump last longer, since it can run closer to 60% most of the time instead o...

Re: Hardware RIP Thread

Thanks for recounting your experiences. I have a feeling I will end up with a D5 pump eventually, but this time around I took the easy way out and ordered another of the same, so that I don't have to worry about modifying the loop. Right now, as busy as things are, it will be tough enough just to be...

Re: Hardware RIP Thread

So now the pump on my fairly new water cooling setup is going bad, making lots of ugly noises. Not sure if I will be able to fix it in time for the Sprint. Also not sure what to replace it with. It didn't last very long, purchased in Feb 2019.

Hey guys, I need a mobo with at least 2 PCIe x16 slots that are well spaced, and that has integrated graphics. I accidentally bought a board from China and am assuming it's never going to arrive.
