    Quieter fans or different case?

    Quick and cheap solution is to find a Rheobus and wire up all the fans to that. Then adjust the fan speed to a more tolerable noise level. I still use one that's almost 20years old.

    Ebay charges tax?

    How does that work? As a buyer I would assume to pay for the tax liability of the item. As a seller why would one be taxed for selling the item at the time of the sale. Seems a bit...potato.

    Ebay charges tax?

    eBay will only tax the buyer of the item. However, it seems that eBay in a large amount of auctions will "incorrectly" collect the correct amount of tax for that purchase. Every time I buy from eBay they charge double the correct tax rate...first world problems.

    2 bitcoins a week

    2 BTC a week, wow. If one had the funds to purchase the hardware to mine 2 btc a week....with the cost of power involved; then why not buy the dip? Seriously. Why. Not. Buy. The. Dip. Is there more cash to be made from mining vs trading at this point? One still needs to pay tax on mining...

    Is it worth flipping the switch back on?

    NH is giving me about $5 per day on my 1080ti. I keep my desktop on all the time to use for short periods of time. With NH running in the background there is no noticeable performance loss. It's not much, but it does pay for the power and add a little BTC to the wallet. I had the idea of buying...

    (SOLVED) I can not display the bios. Windows 10 works fine.

    If you have a gfx card, can you yank it out and try the onboard video? Also it seems that some manufacturers have gotten into the habit of placing "stickers" over ports that otherwise would be of use in situations like this. See if perhaps an oldschool VGA/DVI port that has a sticker over it...

    Sounds like windows 10 fast boot is turned on, disable that in the OS and see if you see a bios / uefi prompt. Alternatively, if you have win 10 boot media available you should be able to access the bios from there via recovery options.

    Black cloth tape inside laptop

    The one thing one learns about OEM laptops is that the thermal goop applied during assembly is a bit aggressive. So before LTT; it was my bane/privilege to "fix" this for our users. 80% of the time for "weird" errors / thermal throttling and this was the fix.

    Black cloth tape inside laptop

    Wat is going on here? is this for real? Just reapply some good thermal paste and call it a day. Mobile chips are DESIGNED for hot loads. (phrasing)
