    3060 v1 stays LHR limited under 371 drivers in NBMiner 39.2, even as 3060ti LHR card is unlocked

    AFAIK, NBMiner 39.x says to stay at or below 70% speed to keep LHR throttles at bay, so setting 80 or above 69 is impressive to be able to do. It sounds like you've had trouble getting 2 LHR cards running NBMiner at elevated speeds too though.

    3060 v1 stays LHR limited under 371 drivers in NBMiner 39.2, even as 3060ti LHR card is unlocked

    Does the NBMiner ethereum -LHR bypass only work with newer versions of LHR? The 3060 card I bought from EVGA in March has the original January 2021 94.06.14.40.45 bios on it and I had been able to get 50 MH/s in NBMiner using the beta 470.05 driver as a single card with standard mining power...

    I just checked EVGA again and the H370 ITX and Z370 MicroATX boards are back in stock at the moment. I'm not going to edit my top post because I doubt they have many.

    Sorry, when I checked from my phone one snooze-cycle earlier it was down to just the z370 micro remaining. When I was up late posting, they all were still available.

    $70 H370 ITX remains - EVGA Clearance Sale? on H370 ITX, Z370 Micro, Z370 FTW, Z370 Classified K - $70 to $100

    Maybe a hot deal if you save $150 on a z370 vs a z490 board and pick up a good price on an 8th or 9th gen chip (you lucky folks who live next to microcenter, etc). These aren't B-stock boards and come with a full 3 year warranty. The only worry might be if they are really, really old stock...

    Old Power Supply with Low Time in New Build?

    I wouldn't be afraid to use it, but I'd also remember that PSU specs slowly change and various protections and connectors are considered more commonplace. Maybe 2012 isn't too far off but I've read of folks with old P3/P4 systems running into issues with 5v rail power on modern psus. I'd say...

    What causes older modern motherboards to fail with boot-loops? p67 ud4

    Sorry for the lack of follow-up, but even after a new bios flash and rebuilding with a new OS the behavior was something I kept ignoring for months but eventually got so bad that the computer wasn't starting around June/July. Then I swapped PSUs and the problem went away. The EVGA 850W GS PSU...

    What do you do with your old SSDs?

    If they don't end up as an OS drive on an older computer, I've added them to C as mounted volumes and just pointed steam at them as game drives. They typically won't show up in file explorer as drives (so they're easy to ignore) but I can still use them as steam library space.

    Partitioning a NVMe drive.

    FWIW, partitioning is also a decent way to set aside unused space to keep SSDs from getting too full. If you only partition 90% of the drive for use, you're very unlikely to ever fill it up to the point it'll hinder write performance. Sometimes I've later come along and partitioned that unused...

    Moved from a 2500K to 9400F system - what tweaks are possible with z370?

    OK. Yeah, I knew I was giving up the majority of overclocking with this CPU choice (it was still half what a 9600k would run) but figured I'd still kick the tires a little/make sure I've got things configured as best I can. I made a bit of a throwback choice and bought Mushkin 2666 ram back in...

    Moved from a 2500K to 9400F system - what tweaks are possible with z370?

    There's been nearly a decade of changes in how intel does clock speed/boost performance and I'm trying to catch up quick. I bought a 9400F CPU on FS/FT and have been very happy with the performance boost. The z370 board is overkill, but I had it long before the CPU. I expect a 41x multiplier...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    I might look into it if I find some benefits, but so far I've been pretty happy with the stock bios on this card with fresh TIM and pads. It comes up with an ASIC quality of 81.9% and I've run (Timespy benchmarks as my overclock test) at 1415 mhz core clock and 2135 mhz memory clock. Maybe...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    The seller was, in the end, more generous than required too. Doing a full inspection of the card damaged the thermal pads (some were downright solid and brittle from years of use) and the seller gave a refund that covered the inexpensive thermal pads I bought from ebay. On the one hand, it...

    Car Mount That Isn't Awful

    ProClip is a winner. I picked up a metal bracket they made for my dash that was fantastic. It was designed to be installed by removing some dash trim around the AC controls, then threading the screws that mount those AC controls through holes in the proclip, and then re-installing the dash...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    I am too. I kind of wish there had been some sort of "thermal overload" flag thrown by the driver, but clocking down to prevent overheating damage is also good. The whole process made me recall building my P3 coppermine system and being very scared about ever forgetting cpu fans since it...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    It's a very nice part of dealing with HardForum's FS/FT, sellers aren't trying to move product quickly without making sure the buyer is happy/just viewing problems as an expense. Yes, I was planning to replace the thermal paste of an ex-mining card all along, but I was very confused about the...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    The seller did give permission to change the paste and they were also very willing to just accept a return without me bothering. I forged ahead and found that the paste was indeed extremely dry. I'd removed most of it before remembering I should take a photo or two. The CPU chip looked ok...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    I was asking what looked off about the card, for things to try, and am fully willing to attempt things that won't compromise the seller's willingness to accept a return. I know if I sold something and then someone returned it as broken after saying they performed bios flashes and TIM...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    Minor update: I did make contact with the seller earlier tonight and they're not going to leave me with a bum card, even offering return shipping. I'm not sure if I'm going to solve what's going on with this card, though.

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    My concern with calling it overheating is that the vbios is set to thermal throttle at 90 C and shutdown at 94 C. When I put the card under stress for 1 min and record with 0.3 second intervals with gpuz, it not only rapidly bounces around (sometimes 10 degrees between measurements) but the...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    No other monitoring programs than GPUz, HWinfo, and the Adrenaline panel. After it crashed using bios defaults I actually bumped up power limits to 50% and progressively backed down from that, even with a -10% on the gpu frequency. It was still doing that rapid gpu frequency/temp cycle.

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    The longer filename (top picture) is what I extracted using atifliash just now. The bottom picture is the file that MSI support provided me based on the serial number sticker on the backplate. I can't see any difference and the CRC values (I think in green) came up the same.

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    I believe that temperature target is specifically for the fan speed control and thermal throttle for the gpu is 90C. Right now the most favorable "the GPU works" outcome is if I get permission from the seller to remove the heatsink to check on/replace the TIM/make sure the heatsink is mounted...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    Nope, it was a screw at the "far from the display connections" end of the GPU that connects the backplate to that metal plate on the front that connects to most of the components but isn't the main heatsink base. All 4 screws of the main heatsink base are there and have the little springs...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    The card has plenty of room to breath, the side panel is off and there's like 5 inches + of space below the card. At first I suspected the bios might be wrong, since it couldn't handle stock and there are a few bios files at techpowerup for this model card. Now I've peeked at the card a lot...

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    Stock from the bios is 1303 but my -10% setting in wattman brings it to 1175. The more I look at temperature graphs from reviews, the more I'm seeing this card's rapid temperature fluctuations look off.

    Bought an ex-mining RX480 and it's crashing at stock

    It's easy enough to try, so can attempt it. The bios was at MSI's forum in this thread. With the SHA values the same, I figured that's a pretty strong indication not to mess with it just yet. Yeah, I did expect I'd probably need fresh thermal paste and possibly a set of new fans, but I...

    Hi, I recently bought a MSI Gaming x RX480 4G card. I removed my prior Nvidia drivers using DDU and put in the RX 480, then installed Adrenaline. I'm new to AMD graphics cards and their wattman utility, so I'm trying to decipher what adjustments are reasonable and where to make them. The card...
