    3060TI preorder at Kwest

    So a website I've never heard of is offering a group discount on a product that automatically sells out in seconds. Seems legit. Take my money.

    HP system r5 3600, 8gb, 256gb, 3070 1216+ tax free shipping

    I saw these systems in person at microcenter. They look pretty darn good really. They made me look twice. It would be tough to build one for that price assuming you buy your OS. My son wants to trade in a laptop for a gaming rig. I'm tempted.

    My PC hot air exhaust project (vent hot air outside the room)

    Man, those were the good old days of overclocking, weren't they? Now days we're excited when we can OC the memory controller to get a 10% performance increase.....

    Mowing over high PPD folders from yesteryear

    Ah. The pizza boxen. Legendary. I still spread boxen around the house. HTPC, gaming pc, server, all in different rooms with multi core CPUs and gaming GPUs. For the pernts.

    It's cold outside, better throw a big log on the fire

    I would probably say the same thing 🤣

    It's cold outside, better throw a big log on the fire

    I considered an alternate title: When people outside say "brr", the GPUs inside go "BRRRRRRRRRR"

    You're kidding? Haha!!

    You know you're into DC when you have a SR-2 collecting dust in your family room

    Mowing over high PPD folders from yesteryear

    Can I join the old timer talk? Always good to see the old names in here. I started folding on my hyperthreaded Pentium 4 3.0C. Two clients to take advantage of hyperthreading. I think I got around 300 PPD with that bad boy. Yes that's 300. Not 300k or 300 million. Hah. Lots of iterations...

    AMD Radeon RX 6000 series for distributed computing

    FAH just implemented CUDA on Nvidia GPUs recently, and there are thousands of Nvidia GPUs in use in FAH. It seemed to take them a very long time to figure that out, when there's been untapped performance waiting for optimization there. It would seem even less likely they will optimize for...

    Are we sure CPUs don't bottleneck GPUs in FAH?

    I know. I found a guy on Reddit who swapped my 3600 for the 3900X for a good deal. If I can get my hands on a 5900X I will buy it and sell the 3900X. I'm predicting availability on the Ryzen will suck as bad as everything else does right now though.

    DEAD WD Easystore 14TB $189.99

    Seems like AMD would be happy to take your money 🙂

    DEAD WD Easystore 14TB $189.99

    Dang. Great deal. Sub $14/TB. I don't think there's a better $/TB option out there. But my current 4x4TB still have 2 TB free...... AArgh. I'm going to hold off for now.

    Are we sure CPUs don't bottleneck GPUs in FAH?

    Good thought. Or, I could do what I am doing, which is swapping it out for a 3900X 🤣

    Are we sure CPUs don't bottleneck GPUs in FAH?

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I've been thinking....with the way today's CPUs boost (high single thread performance, lower all core performance), it wouldn't take too much variance for the GPU PPD lost to outweigh the CPU PPD gain.
