    How did mining blow up again

    New cards that can mine very well (RX 480/580). Price of ETH has jumped to $125! I just bought parts for my 4th mining rig. Currently mining about 13.3 ether per month.

    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    Baked it at 385º for 8 minutes, as per the Lifehacker article. No changes. (I took the time to remove all stickers and plastic pieces very carefully.)

    What are your guy's thoughts about baking it? http://lifehacker.com/5823227/save-dying-video-cards-with-a-quick-bake-in-the-oven

    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    Cursor is not movable. Can't do anything other than hard reboot. I have tried a 22" Acer, 24" Dell, both 1080P. I have tried VGA, DVI, and HDMI. All of them have the same result. http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com/

    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    UPDATE: After booting into Windows via SafeMode, it looks like Windows cannot find a driver for the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter", or the "Generic PnP Monitor". Usually I don't see the 2nd one, I wonder why Windows can't automatically find those drivers. I will search online for answers...

    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    I reinstalled Windows, got all the way in, played games, no problem. It was only after I removed the AIO Liquid GPU cooler that it no longer booted. I tried reinstalling again, got all the way until boot, then it didn't load. I will try another driver, older and newer. I can download both...

    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    My old PC had the MSI 6970 Lightning (which I bought from a user on this forum 4 years ago). I had an AIO liquid cooling system on both the GPU and CPU. I recently upgraded my current PC and moved the AIO liquid cooling system from my 6970 to my new GPU. I reinstalled the old air coolers on...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    I can probably get my fiancee to clean the air purifier. That's the difference. ;) We vacuum quite often. Birds are dusty machines. I replace the filter every 3-4 months while in use. We have cockatiels. 7 of them. 7 little dust factories. I've been thinking about moving the birds...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    Yes, this is exactly what I am thinking about. Still looking for the specific pieces. Thank you for your suggestion above. I've been reading some guides, and the picture is becoming clearer.

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    I don't know exactly how small bird dander is, but it's definitely getting past the filters. These are the filters that I am currently using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811988015 I had to use a plastic trimmer and trim the edges a little bit to fit two of them next...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    I did some research online, and Winix scored well for the money. The replacement filters are like $100, and they last a year, and they are cleanable within that range. I have it going right now in between the birds and my computers. I spot checked it a couple of times and it's already pretty...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    I actually just bought an air purifier, because my fiancee just tested positive for a slight allergy to bird dander. This is the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KXV8KIK So, the computer in the bedroom discussion: this gets a bit into my personal life, but I will digress...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    Yes, I has all the filters already. I have filters on all the intake fans. I don't have them on the exhaust fans. I can look into that. No computers in the bedroom. The whole point is to keep the sleeping space separate from the computer space. We both sleep much better that way. Like I...
