    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    A couple of months ago, my brother brought me into the custom keyboard world as a birthday gift. I've switched things around a bit. Here's my current setup: Mouse: Logitech G Pro Wireless Keyboard: IDOBAO ID80 Crystal (75%) Akko ASA Clear/White caps EG Aqua King Linear 62g switches Some...

    Daily Mining Profits

    I shut mine off the other day. After electricity costs, I would have maybe been netting $2-3 a day, and that's before ETH dropped another $500. I think my mining run is over - grossed ~$8k over the past 15 months which isn't too shabby for not spending any extra money on GPU's or mining hardware.

    Would using the M.2 port directly under the GPU matter in terms of temperatures?

    All different models and controllers (see red text in image), so it's not the best anecdote, but the ADATA SSD directly under my GPU is actually the coolest by a good margin. The 970 EVO below the GPU is actually wedged between a Thunderbolt card and a 10GbE card, which is likely why it is much...

    Samsung 2TB 980 Pro $229 from Dell

    Not getting the $50 popup unfortunately, but definitely a great deal if you can get it to work. Edit: it finally popped up after refreshing the page ~30 minutes later. Ordered and 5000 points pending.

    What's an ideal windows antivirus to use when mining?

    I used Webroot for many years and I could not get it to work with miners even if you whitelisted the executables or folders. Switched to Malwarebytes because of that and it's been fine.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    I think I'm done mining RTM for now. Not a fan of the extra heat and power from the 5950x/3900xt. I was still getting anywhere from 50-90 RTM a day. I'll sit on 10k in case it ever pumps in price.

    Daily Mining Profits

    Yeah my daily average went from $9-10, up to $16 yesterday (and now back down to normal). Not sure what happened tbh.

    WD 18TB Red Pro 7200 Rpm, $251 at Amazon

    Happy and sad I missed this. Things are getting tight with the 10tb/8tb drive arrays.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    I'm getting between 70-80 RTM a day with a 5950x and 3900xt which is probably a little less than $2/day with my electricity rates. I'll probably keep at it until I get to sub 50 a day unless the pricing substantially changes, but I plan to just hold the 6k or so I have long-term. edit: actually...

    Buy SN850 64.99 USD or WD SN550 42.99 USD or SK hynix Gold P31 55.99 500GB for Laptop Use or pay 83 for SN550 1TB

    The SK Hynix is vastly superior for laptops because of it's power usage, and it has very well-rounded performance as well. If I recall correctly with reviews, it was hanging with or trading blows with the Samsung's lineup and most of the other higher end drives with random I/O.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    Yesterday was the 1st day I made sub-100 (88), but I was gaming for ~4 hours, and upgraded the Plex server to a 5700G, so it was offline for a while. I also seem to have quite a few random stratum hangs while using the Supernova pool, and I sometimes have to restart the mining clients on...

    Random Buffering Issues with Media Server...

    Glad to hear it's resolved. I know the 660 supports NVENC, but I'd imagine it's pretty limited on capabilities. I recall the 1050ti's were the cheaper GPU's of choice for Plex transcoding in recent years, but I doubt they're that affordable for what they are during these crazy GPU times.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    I made one sell on Dex-trade, but I'm not a big fan of the site. The rest have been on Southxchange which I have no complaints. You can sell for BTC or DASH. Yeah agreed. I was making 500ish/day with my 5950x + 2700k a month ago, and it's about half that now adding a 3900xt into the mix.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    This is pretty nuts, sitting right under $0.05 now. I should have hoarded, sold ~10k for $0.01 in the last month :(. Still got 4k and making between 200-300 a day.

    Random Buffering Issues with Media Server...

    Yeah if you weren't on the latest version of PMS, the dash may have looked different, but the actual client won't tell you IIRC ('original quality' means you're direct stream/play though). You'd have to look on the actual Plex Server interface under activity/dashboard to see details or the Plex...
