    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I had the 3060 ti fe ready to checkout, but I had to close the window. Of course they are finally available when they have no more value for resellers or miners.

    Ahh yes, back when my cousin couldn't figure out his finances lol. Still hard to find in general, so worthy of posting here when they are available for others.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yup, I entered that on my account and my gf's account pretty early on, still no notification for me. I did manage to get my brother his ps5 in like February of 2021, but since then struck out trying to get one for my cousin. So it's still a desolate wasteland out there for ps5s.

    Welcome to the current market my friend. What you are doing wrong is mining now, and not a year ago.

    They are only available through best buy, though I think a few have randomly shown up at micro center a few times. Nvidia stopped selling them on their site quite a while ago.

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Here you can see the host totals of my 5950x and 5800x, after the 16th it nearly stops dead. Now today it's been moving some along now that the contest is over.

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    My 5950x and 5800x were running boinc on linux mint. As of right now, they are STILL sitting on upload pending. Most of my 5600x units, on windows 10, have finished uploading. For whatever reason, the linux clients can no longer upload. SO the last 3-4 days worth of work (depending on how much...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    I understand with the universities, that is a problem. But the community could address this too, by blacklisting projects that act like that. Yeah I think the zipping and unzipping component might hit the nail on the head. Boinc would need an update, but for example every hour it still hasn't...

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    My 5950x and 5800x have been dead in the water for two days, they just have a huge backlog of completed universe work units that wont upload. At this point they probably never will, and certainly not before the contest is over. Oddly enough my 5600x still has tons of work units in queue, but...

    I ended up water cooling my evga 3090 last year, because that was all I could get. We are only just starting to get back to being able to select what card you want.

    3080 fes are still generally unicorns. The FE msrp has broken everyone's ideas on pricing, it was one of the largest mistakes nvidia made this gen. The 3060 ti, 3070, and 3080 FE cards are still highly sought after by scalpers as they still make an easy profit.

    SETI.Germany's 13th Annual Pentathlon (2022)

    Welp that was my problem anyway, been trying to add the project for the last few days with no luck. Wish it told you that rather than just endlessly failing, now it's going through. I'm late to bunker, but I'll bring my 5600x, 5800x, and 5950x for the cause.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Nvidia left millions on the table. They will adjust prices upwards like 3080 12gb / 3080 ti / 3090 ti levels. 4 figures is the new normal. Looks at cell phones, 1k is the start point for the most popular manufacturers. If they do FE prices aggresively low like 3k series, I think a certain...

    UPS Backup watts/VA needed?

    I can't speak to Canada prices, but that Eaton unit looks fine. Be aware that a refurbished unit may have batteries that are near their end of life, you need to replace them every three to five years, so that might bite you. Check out what replacement batteries will run you on that unit, I know...

    UPS Backup watts/VA needed?

    Dunno about Eaton, that's usually server grade stuff so you're dealing with 240v or perhaps super loud fans, have a link? Here you go, $149 before tax and free shipping, APC 1500 like my gf's pc has https://www.newegg.com/apc-bx1500m-5-x-nema-5-15r-5-x-nema-5-15r/p/42-301-561?Item=42-301-561

    UPS Backup watts/VA needed?

    Just get a 1500va and stop thinking about it. If you run care minimum and the system is spiking from a CPU or GPU load, it will straight turn off. You don't need pure sinewave, no one does. It's a lie the ups companies pay to get more money. The reason it sometimes matters, is the pure sinewave...

    I would guess either a catastrophic pump failure, or cross threaded some fittings during install and slivers that were hanging on have let go.

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    Options are quite limited in this market, so even though EK have made mistakes recently (the nickel flaking debacle etc.) I hope they only downsize and don't collapse. I'm using a lot of EK stuff in my build (yeah my sig is way overdue for an update) and I am fairly happy with it. So far nothing...

    You would be more entertained reading up on what happened with the development of 3, than playing it. It's basically not official or canon. Running with scissors disowned it.

    Postal 4: No Regerts

    I did end up buying it back in October 2019. Played it a few times through the alpha phase, its gotten quite a bit better as we've gone. The Friday update was still a bit janky and I had to reload a few times because I got stuck in places I couldn't jump out of, but it's still a lot of fun. If...

    I did a quick google to compare, I don't get it. 2080 ti can do 55mh @ 180w, 3070 ti can do 55mh @ 190w. I don't think that's enough of a difference to justify it. I think some people selling who don't realize lhr cards can do 74% of potential, or stubborn people who bought them at 2k and are...

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    Myself I would still go with raid 6, but just be aware it might just fail during a rebuild twice in a row. As long as you have a backup plan in place, you can always recover. I've been wanting a 846 for a while too, I never seem to catch them.

    Don't give up. I failed every single bb drop in 2021, even early on when you could try 4+ cards to get the 250 mile issue. I finally scored one in January this year.

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    +1, I moved to RAID6 when I increased my 4tb disk array from 5x to 8x, and use RAID6 on my 8x 8tb disk array. I do plan on retiring the 4tb array in a few years with 16tb drives, but we are quickly approaching the point where you near 100% chance of URE during any rebuild. At least with 10^14...

    I wonder if that's why the shuffle seems to have been discontinued (or at least seems to be significantly slowing, it's not daily anymore.) I bet no one bought them, and newegg just gave up. A whole lot of the people who were desperate for a card have managed to get one. Let newegg and others...

    For $869 +$10 shipping it's no wonder. Just too high of a price for what it is, available or not. No one has forgotten 3080 fes are $699, even though they are unicorns.

    Perhaps it's just a return to the original days, where there were only 1-2 shuffles a week. We got spoiled with daily shuffles. Or perhaps supply has dried up and there are less cards right now for some reason.

    3060 ti through 3080 FE, I think you are right. 3080 ti and 3090 FE still possible, they are much less desirable due to cost. As far as evga, be aware you can't just step up to whatever anymore. The card you step up from will limit what you can step up to. Reference the chart on...

    I scored a 3090 fe in a drop in January, it can happen. You just have to be very lucky. First BB win after striking out all of 2021. There's no reason to think this will ever change. Dealing with bots is just the way it is now.

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    I actually never considered this with my newest arrays. I have 8x 4tb hgst drives and 8x 8tb wd reds, each in their own raid 6 array on my 1883. They are both showing the current Sata mode as SATA600+NCQ(Depth32) for the drives, so I guess I have it on. No clue how it impacts performance, I will...

    It's the only possible direction in the short term unfortunately. If you can hold out perhaps 2 more years, more fabs may have time to come online, including at least one here in the us, which might finally keep up. If you really wanted/needed this, you wouldn't be having any second thoughts at...

    I don't know, there's a lot of double checking now which seems to have helped. I scored a 3090 fe last drop, though it seems 3060 ti, 3070, and 3080 fes were still heavily botted.

    Sometimes. It's difficult to know which stores will actually get stock or not. Early last year I wasted a lot of time with a card in my cart, swapping out zip codes trying to find a store within 250 miles that I could actually ship to. I don't know how much of a good idea that is now with the...
