    Why you dont use cheap PSUs

    So far the most dangerous thing for me has been powering risers and GPUs with different PSUs. I've heard that if the server PSUs fail they can take out your GPUs while ATX ones will shutoff safely but not sure on that. It didn't damage anything did it?

    How do you manage your IPMI etc. credentials?

    Thanks, didn't know you could do that. That would definitely simplify things.

    How do you manage your IPMI etc. credentials?

    Thought I'd throw this out there to see if there's a better way to do things. I've slowly been getting into server hardware and it's a completely different world in terms of complexity. IPMI and remote troubleshooting and management features are great but just adds yet another layer of...

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

    For ETH specifically the only reason I wouldn't do it is the paranoia that my wallet address will get recycled and I lose a $400 payout or that the transfer won't go through and I'll have to bump it, since a lot of exchanges require higher gas fees because they use smart contracts. For most...

    How much heat does on simple pc generates in small room?

    This is the simplest guide I've found without getting too complicated. Just total up the wattage from the GPUs and add like 30% or so and think of having an equivalent space heater running constantly. By 3 x 1060 Rigs how many total GPUs is that? I have a smaller enclosure than that using about...

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    I'm not sure if the 7551p makes sense for ravencoin builds. The motherboards are about $300-500 more than a cheap AM4 board and you need ECC memory that's hard to find cheaply in high speeds. It's pretty close to a 3900x build when it comes to monero mining though.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    STH has a good video on this. AMD already has a 2 chiplet GPU for HPC uses that consumes a ton of power and Nvidia has similar 500-600W GPUs. I think you'd need water-cooling for it, especially in a desktop case where you can't run fans at super fast speeds due to the obscene noise.

    What happened to Zen 3+?

    PM me if they do come out since I'll probably forget. But yeah, looks like they'll be good for CPU mining so if you want one I'd get it early. Microcenter has a 1 CPU per person limit I believe but I don't think they're checking to make sure you don't buy more than 1 every 30 days or anything...

    Unmineable

    Yeah, would be interested in how much less. Nicehash was like 7% less or so which wasn't great. But these ETH transfer fees are eating me alive so getting paid in something with lower fees would be great.

    Older video cards worth anything ?

    I sold a bunch of 4GB 470s over summer for just under $200/each and they sold very quickly on eBay. They've been above $1/day profit at Ravencoin mining for the last year and the last time I saw them around $100-120/each was in January. A 570 should go for slightly more.

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

    Hmmm.. not sure. I have a 3700x with LHR GPUs running at an avg of about 2kH/s (PBO limited on wattage) so not sure if it's that. RAM timings seem good too. I'm running on linux though so who knows with windows.

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

    How long have you had it running for? What memory do you have installed? I just reinstalled a 7551P epyc CPU in another motherboard with a weird RAM setup and it seems like I've lost 50% of my performance just from that.

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

    A lesson I feel like I need to learn: Save 10% or something after selling profits to use for speculation. Could've paid off all of my CPU rigs over the last month if I had held.

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

    ROI on CPU mining is awful guys. I don't know why you do it. Everyone should just give up so the difficulty will go down. /s AMD EPYCs are getting very cheap on eBay now. Kinda wonder if Chinese miners are selling off their stuff. Seems like a safer thing to invest in for now than GPUs. I...

    Ars Technica article: No end to chip shortages

    Ah, that makes sense. I keep hoping for some event that will see somewhat modern hardware dumped onto the market (ie. stadia going bust and selling off all their accelerators) but I guess the stuff we all want would be in the cloud datacenters and businesses will just offload outdated stuff.

    Can you elaborate what you're seeing that's crazy in datacenter? I can confirm haswell xeons are dirt cheap though. Like $2-3 / chip sometimes.

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    You might just be overthinking things if it's getting 61MH/s. LHR unlocks are far from a guarantee. The first few weeks at least after the first unlocks were released I tried them but some GPUs would be unstable, others had to be run well below the ideal unlock %, and then you have the typical...

    Latest GPU Market Sales Indicate that NVIDIA Indeed Halted RTX 30 Series Production

    The cheapest 6900XT I've seen was in December of last year for $1100 after tax in the U.S. I suppose if you're lucky enough to get one off amd.com you could get one slightly cheaper maybe. But $1400-1600 for a 6900xt has been a good price for the last year almost in the U.S. The cheapest I see...

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    Install hiveos to a USB drive and boot into that. It's free for up to a few GPU rigs and would be a quick way to check. [Edit:] My 3080 LHR memory is micron. Not sure if there are others yet although I heard some of the other models were getting hynix now. If it's fluctuating like that do you...

    6 RTX 3080 (LHR) INNO3D, help to build a Rig.

    How much was it? Since you're only running 6 GPUs you could've gone with a cheaper motherboard / CPU combo but I guess that board will give you room to expand (assuming you add additional power supplies).

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    Not sure about nicehash but some pools have payout limits of around 100 coins and it'd take you probably a few days to reach that with 1 x 3080.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I predict that nvidia will keep producing LHR cards and AMD will go back to HBM2 memory and we'll see a lot of overlap between their next gen HPC cards and gaming cards (I hope).

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    I'm using hiveos so I do my overclocking there. In windows I thought maybe afterburner would work, it works for my nvidia laptops. Try not messing with the power limit slider and adjusting the clock offsets maybe?

    How to unlock LHR cards?

    It should basically be automatic at this point and fairly stable. I'm using trex miner on mine and get a stable 64-66MH/s. Overclocks are: Core: -200MHz Memory: 1700 (half that if windows) 100% fan speed 245W power limit You could probably do better with the overclocks but I haven't repadded...

    1U Power Supplies for Servers?

    No, purely CPUs for now. It's hard to find cheap server cases for GPUs that'll let me swap the motherboard out easily. I've found some old HPC servers but generally the motherboards are custom sized into weird shapes so I can't replace them with an atx sized square board.

    1U Power Supplies for Servers?

    Anyone have experience with small PSUs (mini-ITX / 1U form factor) with enough output for about 300-400W of CPU usage? It turns out there's a computer recycling warehouse down the street from me so I have a consistent supply of $40 servers. They're all generally fully functional but are ancient...

    Beware of EVGA GPU's selling for "good prices"

    Do you realize how much GPS trackers cost? They're also bulky. They make sense on trucks and stuff, not so much on smaller items. Putting 1 inside each box of several dozen cards might make sense if they were returned to you and you could reuse them.

    $600 conundrum, 1080ti vs 3060

    GTX 1080ti. The 3060 is a turd. I think they're expecting $600 3070's or something. A price that hasn't been relevant for about a year. I guess you could always try to fight for a GPU at bestbuy or on evga's bstock drops. This seller also has several thousand available at only $490...

    sell or keep KD5

    I wouldn't feel bad about selling it if you can get anywhere near $35k for it. I think you could end up making more in the long run by mining, but we're already a year into a bullrun and who knows what will happen in the short term. Kadena could go to $100 or back to 30 cents. Additionally...

    My GPU RMA Experiences this year

    Just thought I would update this: My powercolor 5700xt that I've RMA'd for a second time came back and still doesn't work right (card acted up again immediately after I got it back, and only worked for 2 days after first purchase). I put it into a linux computer first and it was recognized but...

    My Latest creation

    I thought I'd share this. I've been researching moving everything into server racks so airflow is easier to manage. My last test with a tesla s1070 system didn't really work out. I think it's possible but I've heard you need to have at least 1 of the original GPUs inserted for it to work...

    Is it a good time to invest in miners?

    Overall crypto market - We've been in a bull market for awhile now. Things could crash in December or keep going, who knows. If the market crashes, you'll probably only be profitable if you have cheaper electricity. So keep that in mind. Your location / electric rates may price you out of the...

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

    Anyone run into issues with their miners not showing on pools? I switched to rplant and it was working fine, but now half my workers don't show up. Switched some to flockpool and not seeing anything either, even though they're hashing. Had to switch them back to monero for the time being.

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

    Is that your max speed? The algorithm switching makes it hard to compare unless you have an average over 24 hours or so. My 3900x CPUs seem to get around 2.2-2.4kh/s up to 10.8kh/s spikes. But mostly seems to be between 2.2kh/s to 4.8kh/s. I haven't done any optimizations related to Raptoreum...
