    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    People will mine until ETH is no longer mineable. Stop waiting for a crash of crypto to ease the limited availability because it won't. When it crashes and all those small miners sell their cards the real miners will snatch 'em up so fast even if they make just $1 of profit per card. People...

    Using a Seasonic GM-650 PCIe cable on a ASUS THOR 850W Platinum (Seasonic made)

    I tested it with a multimeter and the Seasonic GM-650 had the same pinout than the ASUS Thor 850W Platinum. The ASUS is also made by Seasonic and I was reading they have standarized their cables in most of their PSUs. I put it to work with the 3070 and it's working fine. There are no PCIe cables...

    Using a Seasonic GM-650 PCIe cable on a ASUS THOR 850W Platinum (Seasonic made)

    Yeah, fuck that. No one has cables right now probably due to the huge mining business. I'm going to check with a volt meter see if they are placed the same and use it.

    Using a Seasonic GM-650 PCIe cable on a ASUS THOR 850W Platinum (Seasonic made)

    Ok, definitely not using it then. I already put it back into its PSU box, it's from my secondary computer. Another question, is using a PCIe splitter a bad idea? I am thinking on using 2 to power 1x3080, 2x3060 and 1x PCIe x1 to x16 riser card.

    Using a Seasonic GM-650 PCIe cable on a ASUS THOR 850W Platinum (Seasonic made)

    Looking at https://cablemod.com/compatibility/ and buying a cable for either one results in the same cable. Could this still not be safe? SE-Series / RT-Series Seasonic® G-Series 650 SE-Series / RT-Series ASUS® ROG Thor 850P

    Using a Seasonic GM-650 PCIe cable on a ASUS THOR 850W Platinum (Seasonic made)

    So I have used all the PCIe cables provided by the ASUS THOR 850W Platinum which I understand is also made by Seasonic. I also have an extra PCIE cable from the modular PSU that is PCIE, I couldn't find the wiring on the manuals for any online. Is this not recommended? Would it fry my stuff...

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    I am guessing that was the problem, yup. It seems like it moved a little bit. Actually taking a look at my mobo I also found that this model includes a heatsink for the M.2, just set it up and the temperature is much lower now, pretty awesome, didn't even know. I will probably put my old PSU for...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s first major update coming in the next 10 days

    Impressive, now I understand why the world has become a shitfest, it's like everyone thinks for everyone else. GTA V and RDR2 have pretty good and interactive NPC systems, not sure what the fuck you are talking about, obviously you haven't experienced it. I played 8 hours of Cyberpunk and was...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s first major update coming in the next 10 days

    I tried to refund after 8 hours on Steam as I felt at the beginning like a few bugs were fine but then the game started to feel incomplete, that's where I asked for the refund, got a no-no for playing more than 2 hours. Yes there might be great gameplay and content, but man those glitches are...

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    I just took off the SSD and re inserted it and it seems to be working. So I guess it might have not been the PSU. I probably moved the SSD when I put the new 3080. Well, I guess it's better with an 850w PSU just in case I require more power, lol.

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    Just switched to a THOR 850w PSU I went and bought and the computer still restarts and the SSD goes unrecognizable. Going to try and update the BIOS. Works fine with the GTX 1070.

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    Also the crash only happens when I login to Windows. After it restarts and the BIOS appears without the SSD the PC does not restart anymore. Will go pickup an ASUS THOR 850. yup, max SSD temp was about 54c, not great but not terrible?

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    It has the previous version to the latest, which was release on December I believe. I am concerned of going and buying a new PSU and the issue still remaining.

    Solved: M.2 NVMe SSD not being recognized by BIOS on crash after adding RTX 3080

    I just recently swapped my 1070 to an 3080. It played well but suddenly started experiencing random crashes when away from the PC and when I come back I find the BIOS screen without the SSD being recognized. The only way to get it to work is doing a CMOS reset. Could it be the PSU is not enough...

    Streaming PC Specs? (Dual PC Setup)

    I don't think I will be adding a video card anytime soon, but I was thinking it was a good idea to have the possibility of adding one with the mobo. The other thing I do need is a lot of PCIe x1 or x2 for PCIe Capture Cards. Right now I have one but I could be adding more. This X570-P has 1 x16...

    Streaming PC Specs? (Dual PC Setup)

    I'm looking to get into streaming as a hobby/not-so-hobby and would like some suggestions from the gurus here. I know most people here might not stream but I guess with the technical aspects we can figure out what's the best. Currently I have my gaming rig in my signature, this is what I use to...

    What would you upgrade next?

    Wouldn't it be better to get a G-SYNC monitor rather than FreeSync? I haven't checked if this one is supported by NVIDIA's old monitors certification.

    What would you upgrade next?

    If I were to go to a 2080 in the near future I think it would be best to first upgrade the monitor to a 27".

    How many USB buses does a motherboard have?

    I was researching for the cameras that do the encoding directly on the camera. Would this help with USB bandwidth usage? I found Logitech's datasheet but it only talks about CPU and power utilization: https://www.logitech.com/assets/45120/logitechh.pdf Maybe I could get several of these?

    How many USB buses does a motherboard have?

    I'm just running two Logitech C922x and it's a pain to have them both working properly on Wirecast sometimes because the USB hub gets overloaded according to the errors reported by Wirecast, it asks to change to a different USB bus.

    How many USB buses does a motherboard have?

    So basically I do a lot of streaming and upgraded my computer in order to have better USB support than my MacBook pro apart from other things, the story here is I tried moving around USB connections all over my motherboard and apparently it only has 1 usb hub. In order to have more I have to buy...

    Next upgrade? Wait for M.2 prices to go down?

    Not really, so I guess I can see the monitor being a much better upgrade. How will I be affected performance wise though going to a bigger monitor with a GTX 1070? Will the G-Sync actually help feel less of a performance hit? You are correct, most videos are saved in a NAS, but when editing I...

    Next upgrade? Wait for M.2 prices to go down?

    What would you suggest? 4K seems like it's not worthy as yet there's not enough GPU power to have most games perform properly at 60 fps. Would a 1070 work fine with a 2K monitor? What would be the suggested size for a 2K monitor, 27"? The one I had before was 25.5" actually. The idea of the...

    i7-9700K with Corsair H60

    i7-9700K with Corsair H60

    I am thinking on upgrading the recently bought combo with an old mobo/cpu (6th Gen i5) and have noticed considerable slowdowns on games. Would the Corsair H60 keep the i7-9700K decently cool? I will not be overclocking until I upgrade to faster RAM and a better cooler.

    Decent Gaming Laptop (CyberPower)?

    Decent gaming build for $1100?
