    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    I just bought a 1070 and a z70a from a guy on the forum as well :) the [H]ookup is real. Stuff was pretty cheap and I'll update y'all on whether it is DOA or not LOL. Thanks for all the advice to everyone who replied on this post :)

    Buying an ASUS z270a board from a crypto-miner?

    It's really undercutting retail price, like $100 is the price we agreed on, and I'm just honestly worried that it's "too good" of a deal, ya know? And I agree with the used hardware thing, I've bought the hell out of some used stuff for my build lol.

    Buying an ASUS z270a board from a crypto-miner?

    Hey y'all, This past May I built my first computer, and I'm running on a mobo that cannot OC ram or CPU, and I'd like to OC my 7600K. I got a really good deal on a z270A from a miner, and he has a warranty that prevents DOA, and has sent me pictures of it working, etc. It was in sub-45C...

    How much maintenance does a normal (1 gpu oced, 1 cpu oced, 4 sticks of ram) watercooling build take?

    Wouldn't it just be cheaper to water cool at this point?

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    Thanks for the actual numbers. I'm probably gonna grab a 1070 and a new mobo to oc my cpu, then get a job this summer and grab a 1080ti when stuff settles out.

    What do you think a good markdown is for a card that's been mined on? And I did a bunch of research after posting this, it seems your point is well based in evidence lol, fuck the haters

    The 3 likes along with this comment make it seem like it's a good idea. I'll look into buying a card from one of the people on here. I figured that this would probably be the place I bought from anyways, with all the expertise and info from all you guys!

    I love this website. Some things you just can't find reading guides or articles, you need informed people who are happy to help others who are new. I'm gonna look into watercooling once I get myself all set up :) thanks for everything man, and I hope your day is going well!

    I’m gonna hit you up when I start water cooling, I love how knowledgeable this forum is on everything electronics and hardware. Thank you for the tips, I didn’t even know about Barrow, only EKWB :)

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    Good to know. I think that it’s the perfect time to get a mining card from a reliable seller because of the simple decline of mining (or so it seems, correct me if I’m wrong), and honestly now that I have the money for water cooling, I think that a well-maintained, undervolted/clocked card could...

    You guys are on some next level stuff with your builds. I’m function over form for now at least, I just need it to perform and power my stream and the games I want to play. I can’t wait to get water cooling all set up though. Your setup sounds dope af man

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    The cards I think I'm gonna grab are like 66% (or less) of retail price, and the sellers all have god heatware. Have you had any experiences with mining cards or sellers? I'm happy to take any tips from you guys, that's what I'm here for.

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    So undervolting and underclocking are things to look for? That makes sense because I always hear people talk about overclocked cards burning out over time. do you have a custom water loop or do you use prebuilt stuff, EK, etc?
  18. Horiscopes

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    Yeah it looks like a good deal as well. I'm gonna work on water-cooling my streaming setup at some point, and then i'll post some cool pics of it with rgb for the hype montages. The seller has a warranty against DOA cards, and seems like he is a cool guy. I kinda just wish there was an actually...

    Mined Cards vs. "New" Cards from Retailers

    Hey y'all, I've been following all the hype and stuff for the new RTX cards, and all the new processor stuff, and that's cool and all. However, I'm broke, so that stuff doesn't really apply to me in a large sense. I have been looking for a 1080ti/1080 or 1070ti/1070 for awhile, and I think I...

    The heavy headsets are actually extremely annoying, but the wires are the worst, I can't count the number of times that I've tripped over them or pulled them out of the PC, or stretched them, because I was messing around.

    I've never really been into Nintendo stuff. Also I definitely feel you on the stupidly short campaigns that are so common in games, especially FPS games, nowadays. Also if you ever want to play PoE add me on steam @ Horiscopes.

    FPS Toxicity

    Hey guys, I just was wondering how you guys felt about the toxicity which has rather quickly invaded the FPSes many of us enjoy. I personally feel that this stuff's a double-edged sword, because it's fun sometimes, but on the other hand it can completely ruin videogames. I know that a lot of...

    With this new movie coming out about VR and all the tech that it's associated with, I was just wondering; what's the allure of VR for all you guys out here? Personally I like doing VR with my friends, it's really fun when you see how uncoordinated normal PC gamers are.
