    Anyone else on the RaiBlocks train?

    Today I passed my quadruple point and it seems like it may still have legs. It's a much better Bitcoin than Bitcoin, so maybe there's something here.

    Watch out for IOTA. It's going to change things. Instead of a single chain of blocks, it's structured as a directed acyclic graph (DAG). Instead of a single computer being chosen to write the next block for everyone through PoW or PoS, previous transactions are validated by new transactions...

    Has anyone set up Sia storage?

    It doesn't really make any money now, but apparently the network gives preference to hosts who have been up longer, so I'm thinking of setting up a box now in the hopes the service will catch on. Has anybody done this?

    Getting more than 30 hash ETH on GTX 1070

    How are you folks getting 31-32 MH/s on your GTX 1070s? I have 3 different models and I haven't been able to do better than 29 MH/s on some cards. The biggest disappointment is some MSI Aero's that won't go over 25 without going up to or over 90C. What OS, drivers, miners are you using? And...

    Please help me find the right RAID card

    I have an application that involves writing a bunch of records (10M+) to a Neo4j graph, and I'd like for this to happen in as little time as possible. I've moved from a spinning drive to an SSD and that has made a huge difference, but I'd like to take it a step further and put a pair of SSDs in...

    Fallout 4 is coming, time for video card(s) for 3 monitors

    I recently installed a new motherboard, memory, cpu, SSD, so most of my system is fresh. But I'm just using on-board video for now, since I'm not playing any games. I need to choose the games I play wisely, since I have a tendency to disappear from the world and not get much done. I'll be...

    Hello again, HF. You did me good the last time I asked for build advice. I love the machine I built and am very happy for the price I paid. I need help with another machine I'm building for a very different purpose. It'll be a machine that only does calculations as part of a distributed...

    Z87 Integrated Graphics Multi Monitor Support

    Gaming re-build < $1500

    I've been putting off upgrading my rig for far too long. It's getting very crashy and it doesn't have the horsepower I'll need for BF4, which I will want to play. I've been out of the custom computer market for so long I have very little idea of what's available. So I'd really appreciate some...

    5850s in XFire are too crashy. Where do I go from here?

    I got a pair of XFX 5850 Black Editions when BFBC2 came out and I use them to run 3 Dell 2007FPs for 4800x1200 resolution. They work great for some games but for others they get very crashy, unless I disable crossfire. So I'm wondering if there's a single card solution that'll give me the...

    Small notebook that can dock with 2+ external monitors

    I'm starting a new job that involves a lot of travel, but still a lot of desk time. I'm on the hunt for a small, travel-friendly notebook or ultrabook, preferably with no optical drive.

    Increase disk size in Server 2008 R2 RAID 5

    I have a 3-disk RAID 5 created using Windows Server 2008 R2 for storing all of my music and videos. The data's not critical but it'd be a pain in the ass to replace. The disks are all 1 TB. I was thinking about getting some 2TB drives this weekend. Is it possible to replace the 1TB drives...

    Recommend to me a 46" TV, please

    New house, new den, time for a new TV. 46" seems to be the perfect size for how everything's arranged, but bigger would be acceptable if the price difference were small. Lighting in that room can go from quite bright in the day, watching basketball, to very dark for movie time. No...

    SATA on Southbridge + Athlon XP?

    I recently learned the hard (expensive) way that a SATA drive connected to my Epox 8RDA3+ does not work for audio recording, which is my machine's primary function (apart from gaming, of course :) ). Audio played from or recorded to sounds awful, because it can't get a proper data stream going...
