    3060 v1 stays LHR limited under 371 drivers in NBMiner 39.2, even as 3060ti LHR card is unlocked

    AFAIK, NBMiner 39.x says to stay at or below 70% speed to keep LHR throttles at bay, so setting 80 or above 69 is impressive to be able to do. It sounds like you've had trouble getting 2 LHR cards running NBMiner at elevated speeds too though.

    3060 v1 stays LHR limited under 371 drivers in NBMiner 39.2, even as 3060ti LHR card is unlocked

    Does the NBMiner ethereum -LHR bypass only work with newer versions of LHR? The 3060 card I bought from EVGA in March has the original January 2021 94.06.14.40.45 bios on it and I had been able to get 50 MH/s in NBMiner using the beta 470.05 driver as a single card with standard mining power...

    $70 H370 ITX remains - EVGA Clearance Sale? on H370 ITX, Z370 Micro, Z370 FTW, Z370 Classified K - $70 to $100

    I just checked EVGA again and the H370 ITX and Z370 MicroATX boards are back in stock at the moment. I'm not going to edit my top post because I doubt they have many.

    $70 H370 ITX remains - EVGA Clearance Sale? on H370 ITX, Z370 Micro, Z370 FTW, Z370 Classified K - $70 to $100

    Sorry, when I checked from my phone one snooze-cycle earlier it was down to just the z370 micro remaining. When I was up late posting, they all were still available.

    $70 H370 ITX remains - EVGA Clearance Sale? on H370 ITX, Z370 Micro, Z370 FTW, Z370 Classified K - $70 to $100

    Maybe a hot deal if you save $150 on a z370 vs a z490 board and pick up a good price on an 8th or 9th gen chip (you lucky folks who live next to microcenter, etc). These aren't B-stock boards and come with a full 3 year warranty. The only worry might be if they are really, really old stock...

    Thermalright, where did the go?

    FWIW, you could take the $13 and a slow boat from china route and see if it works. https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32798364704.html

    Old Power Supply with Low Time in New Build?

    I wouldn't be afraid to use it, but I'd also remember that PSU specs slowly change and various protections and connectors are considered more commonplace. Maybe 2012 isn't too far off but I've read of folks with old P3/P4 systems running into issues with 5v rail power on modern psus. I'd say...

    What causes older modern motherboards to fail with boot-loops? p67 ud4

    Sorry for the lack of follow-up, but even after a new bios flash and rebuilding with a new OS the behavior was something I kept ignoring for months but eventually got so bad that the computer wasn't starting around June/July. Then I swapped PSUs and the problem went away. The EVGA 850W GS PSU...

    What do you do with your old SSDs?

    If they don't end up as an OS drive on an older computer, I've added them to C as mounted volumes and just pointed steam at them as game drives. They typically won't show up in file explorer as drives (so they're easy to ignore) but I can still use them as steam library space.

    Partitioning a NVMe drive.

    FWIW, partitioning is also a decent way to set aside unused space to keep SSDs from getting too full. If you only partition 90% of the drive for use, you're very unlikely to ever fill it up to the point it'll hinder write performance. Sometimes I've later come along and partitioned that unused...

    Moved from a 2500K to 9400F system - what tweaks are possible with z370?

    OK. Yeah, I knew I was giving up the majority of overclocking with this CPU choice (it was still half what a 9600k would run) but figured I'd still kick the tires a little/make sure I've got things configured as best I can. I made a bit of a throwback choice and bought Mushkin 2666 ram back in...
