    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    First time is always rough, I made my first hard tube loop last year. When you get more than one bend per segment the complexity skyrockets. What I found extremely helpful was to make some jigs using bricks, so I always had a 90 or two to bend against. I also had drawn out the distances I needed...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yes, I do it and I suspect many more will now moving forward. But some cases have no adapter or setup for vertical, so this is something many others need to be aware of. I myself won't be buying a 4090, my 3090 will just have to suffice (one day I should update my sig.)

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro enhanced trade-in credit and promo gift card @ BestBuy

    Best Buy offers me $15 for my lg v40. I know it's older and I wasn't expecting a lot, but really? Just say ineligible for trade in, that's an insult. 4 years old and still kicking so I guess I'll stay put.

    Ahh so it was a height issue, oops. Thanks for clearing that up, I have been hearing the ridiculous height will be a massive problem for all but the largest cases.

    Can you post a photo of the issue? Looking up the Asus 4090 Tuf Gaming, it's 348.2mm long https://www.asus.com/Motherboards-Components/Graphics-Cards/TUF-Gaming/TUF-RTX4090-O24G-GAMING/techspec/ The Lian Li O11 Dynamic lists support for VGA Card up to 420mm...

    With inflation I honestly expected the 4090 to be significantly more than the 1499 the 3090 launched at. Guess I was off base, but it looks like they plan to seriously close the gap we had between 3090 and 3080 pricing. All while making the lesser 4080 significantly lesser, so much so that it is...

    Daily Mining Profits

    Even with free electricity you are looking at far less than a dollar a day per card, and that requires you to hunt the currently best algo for your specific cards, so you're spending a lot of time tuning each one. Then an hour passes and something else is far better, so you have to change all...

    Daily Mining Profits

    Running for another half hour or so then I am shutting them down before I go to bed. Hope over the next few weeks something emerges as profitable, but my electric is pretty high ($0.21/kwh) so they might stay off until winter where I can use them to heat my basement vs the regular electric heater.

    Last I knew they changed the terms to revoke any discounts you received during your membership if cancelled before 1 year, which would reduce your refund or even leave you owing more.

    Yeah I know, but if you search for msi 3070 ti on best buy's site, it comes up under search as sold out but clicking on on the search result brings you to the broken page. I wonder if BB disabled it because their site was getting too much traffic after they sold out?

    It was a good deal for someone actively looking, and it was a 3070 ti for less than 3070 fe msrp. It sold out.

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    You didn't comprehend what I said, if your kneejerk reaction is horse shit. It is a fact, that 3060 tis have been very available in the last few weeks. That bloomberg article does not address anything related to purchasing of cards, just speculation. Most cards now have multi year break evens...

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    The 3060 ti has been available quite a lot at best buy the last few weeks, for hours and hours per drop. EVGA just seems to not include them in the sales, or nvidia isn't giving them more of those chips. They probably have way too many of the left over 2k series round 2 nvidia churned out...

    JustGPU.com - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    Just list the resolution. All these games need to stop. I agree once we had multiple aspect ratios, all these shorthand versions became useless.
