    TheHig replied to the thread Cooling a stock 7900X.
    Also remember folks the default behavior of these is to run up to 95c and hold the clocks if possible. My 7700x will run right up there too on all core loads. All I’ve done to lessen this is go to enhanced PBO in bios (Asus x670e gene) and...

    I've have yet seen a good answer to why the 3090/3090Ti did not seem to have this sort of problem with a similar power envelope. With way more of them in service including mining farms etc. What is different besides sense pins? Users less...

    Excited for Mando because it’s a lot of fun but Andor is fantastic. It’s the kind of Star Wars story that I’ve wanted to see for a long time. People criticize it for being slow but it’s incredibly shot ,well acted and has real tension and weight...

    Don't bite the hand that feeds

    If you can handle the pacing and get through the first 2 episodes, Andor is Star Wars for Adults. Well written, fully developed characters and plots. Great world building and it doesn't have it's actors telling you everything. You get a good...

    The cards I posted are open box at Microcenter meaning they were sold and then returned for whatever reason. So yes they are selling but so many returns are curious to me. Flying back to the shelf?! Seriously though, I buy a lot of open box...

    Looks like some buyers remorse or maybe someone locally is buying one of everything to review on thier fledgling YouTube channel…😉

    While true I feel that the problem people are having is that the 3rd card down from the top of the stack is still $800. Seeing a 70 level card for that kind of money is hard to accept for a lot of people. It feels more like a more efficient...

    Yeah I was watching one review and there were a couple games where the 4070 TI was having to spill over into system ram. In those cases the 4080 had a massive increase in performance over the 4070 TI compared to games where vram was not a...

    The 6000 series story utterly reeks of bs, 60+ cards all at the same repair store all in the same country. And according to some tweets, the pcb's show signs of possible heatgun use.

    I just got a 7700X combo at Micro Center in preparation for X3D. I highly doubt they will be giving away RAM with X3D - it'll be a tough chip to get.

    I am wondering if these cards from mining farms might be running some custom bios where the power limits are f'ed and removed up or down. Messing with the drivers. I know lot of mining farms would use custom bios to unlock things to improve...
  • TheHig
    Yeah, all these talking heads on YouTube telling you, "Sure, go buy those mining cards, they are excellently cared for," is a load a bullshit.
  • TheHig
    The timing is a bit suspicious. Piling on AMD for the cooler batch issue put them in focus so more attention on them right now for sure. What if after mining for a year or more lots of Radeon cards barely make it past warranty? What if the 6000s...
  • TheHig
    Not sure why people will have a big outrage about miners ending up with dead cards on their hands, has those cards get over their 2 years warranty (1 or 3 years depending on the markets/AIBs) since last October and has they get into gamers hands...

    Interesting here is this person stated 30% fail rate of Nvidia cards in his farm and the Radeons didn’t die in the mines but shortly thereafter. Where is the outrage concerning dead RTX cards? I think we all collectively can agree that mining...

    I've made some major "cosmetic" upgrades to my PC, thanks to an abundance of Amazon Gift Cards at Christmas. New case, AIO and case fans. I need to do the cable management for the entire set up, though. I plan on buying some supplies/materials to...

    Looks like Mad Maxx won't make it 5 years in a row.... Still need to tidy up my wires/cables. Custom built iron pipe desk. Lighting in my basement isn't the greatest.
