Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

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 ...

So I just picked up a used 1080ti for $350. Seems like a decent value.

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.

Re: Broke my phone pretty badly...

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...

I like that you have done that. There's been a few times when I logged in at night from one of my many PCs and my eyes had to put up with a brief blast of white. No more! :D

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.

FOUND: Motherboard With 2 PCIe x16 Slots

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. Prefer LGA 1155 or LGA 1150 because I have CPUs and RAM for those apps, but in a pinch, an older LGA 201...

It's just inconvenient for it to happen in the middle of a contest! In my case that is the way it always goes!! Then again, mine are usually self inflicted issues.

I'm not that sad if it's the motherboard, because I got it cheap and it was just a stopgap with its weird form factor. Today I finally found a reasonably priced dual CPU board for it so I can put it back into the dual CPU system it came out of that had one of the sockets go bad in. It's just inconve...

Well, that's better than what just happened to me. 12C/24T Xeon system with a 1070ti just went tits up. No response at all, no beeps, nothing. Stripped to a minimal config with the onboard VGA, still nothing. She's dead, Jim.
