    Why you dont use cheap PSUs

    So far the most dangerous thing for me has been powering risers and GPUs with different PSUs. I've heard that if the server PSUs fail they can take out your GPUs while ATX ones will shutoff safely but not sure on that. It didn't damage anything did it?

    How do you manage your IPMI etc. credentials?

    Thanks, didn't know you could do that. That would definitely simplify things.

    How do you manage your IPMI etc. credentials?

    Thought I'd throw this out there to see if there's a better way to do things. I've slowly been getting into server hardware and it's a completely different world in terms of complexity. IPMI and remote troubleshooting and management features are great but just adds yet another layer of...

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

    For ETH specifically the only reason I wouldn't do it is the paranoia that my wallet address will get recycled and I lose a $400 payout or that the transfer won't go through and I'll have to bump it, since a lot of exchanges require higher gas fees because they use smart contracts. For most...

    How much heat does on simple pc generates in small room?

    This is the simplest guide I've found without getting too complicated. Just total up the wattage from the GPUs and add like 30% or so and think of having an equivalent space heater running constantly. By 3 x 1060 Rigs how many total GPUs is that? I have a smaller enclosure than that using about...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    I'm not sure if the 7551p makes sense for ravencoin builds. The motherboards are about $300-500 more than a cheap AM4 board and you need ECC memory that's hard to find cheaply in high speeds. It's pretty close to a 3900x build when it comes to monero mining though.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    STH has a good video on this. AMD already has a 2 chiplet GPU for HPC uses that consumes a ton of power and Nvidia has similar 500-600W GPUs. I think you'd need water-cooling for it, especially in a desktop case where you can't run fans at super fast speeds due to the obscene noise.

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    PM me if they do come out since I'll probably forget. But yeah, looks like they'll be good for CPU mining so if you want one I'd get it early. Microcenter has a 1 CPU per person limit I believe but I don't think they're checking to make sure you don't buy more than 1 every 30 days or anything...

    Unmineable

    Yeah, would be interested in how much less. Nicehash was like 7% less or so which wasn't great. But these ETH transfer fees are eating me alive so getting paid in something with lower fees would be great.

    Older video cards worth anything ?

    I sold a bunch of 4GB 470s over summer for just under $200/each and they sold very quickly on eBay. They've been above $1/day profit at Ravencoin mining for the last year and the last time I saw them around $100-120/each was in January. A 570 should go for slightly more.

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

    Hmmm.. not sure. I have a 3700x with LHR GPUs running at an avg of about 2kH/s (PBO limited on wattage) so not sure if it's that. RAM timings seem good too. I'm running on linux though so who knows with windows.

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

    How long have you had it running for? What memory do you have installed? I just reinstalled a 7551P epyc CPU in another motherboard with a weird RAM setup and it seems like I've lost 50% of my performance just from that.

    The gig might be up. The difficulty has almost doubled overnight.

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

    A lesson I feel like I need to learn: Save 10% or something after selling profits to use for speculation. Could've paid off all of my CPU rigs over the last month if I had held.

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

    ROI on CPU mining is awful guys. I don't know why you do it. Everyone should just give up so the difficulty will go down. /s AMD EPYCs are getting very cheap on eBay now. Kinda wonder if Chinese miners are selling off their stuff. Seems like a safer thing to invest in for now than GPUs. I...
