    100% LHR unlock. Things just got outta hand!

    really? my 5600XTs and 2080 supers are still netting 200% profit a day compared to the cost of running them. and those are not the most efficient cards on the planet. i like when crypto 'crashes' so i can mine more of it in a shorter time because everyone else stops mining.

    Intel legacy BIOS support removal?

    there are some guides on moving windows from BIOS to UEFI. https://www.maketecheasier.com/convert-legacy-bios-uefi-windows10/ honestly, it sounds like you would be better off savings things you want to keep on to a USB drive, then setting the PC into UEFI boot and installing a clean windows...

    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    the OCD in me would have put the ends of the zipties on the inside towards the heatsink. that should work nicely though, the older thermalrights are still very good, most hat a dissipation rating of at least 135w, the coppers were well north of that.

    So anyone in here have any tape library experience?

    well i prefer the Lenovo LTO chassis. i have never found LTO to have any long term storage stability, and i got rid of my last LTO chassis last year, so i am not up on the current versions.

    So anyone in here have any tape library experience?

    Honestly if you must use a removable type, use RDX. otherwise move to a disk to disk backup.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    pin damage/missing pins is pretty repairable. as far as i am concerned, you through away a functional CPU.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    i do not understand why people throw away stuff that is worth so much money, i just seen a post on a forum where a guy binned a complete b450 system because of an upgrade. i guess most people treat this world as disposable, me, i have been using the same plastic disposable spoon all week.

    Digitizing my old Video 8 and VHS cassettes but how?

    You could buy a old used VTR. Some are S-VHS and 8mm capable. They have TBC built in and you could pump that signal into even the cheapest capture card and have good results. That old equipment has a wide price range on ebay depending on rather it is 'collector grade' so just watch for some...

    Custom Keyboard Build

    Very few manufacturers make crystals, if you want crystals you will have to sacrifice on quality some. I was looking at pudding caps and found the g.skills crystals on sale for 15$. I like them for what i paid for them.

    Custom Keyboard Build

    G.Skill makes a nice set of crystal caps available with white or black tops. the buttons are up to rather you like clicky or not. and there are several ways to add damping too. ebay sells packs of dampers that slip on. the liquid silicone would be difficult but maybe a plastic syringe would...

    4 pin connector hunt

    it is physically the same as a 4 pin ATX connector. you could probably buy some molex to ATX adapters and mod them fairly easily.

    4 pin connector hunt

    The plastic connector and pins are easy to get, but adapters are scarce. Probably easiest to roll your own.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    i did have to send in a bunch of pics, CPU and box, my name, my ebay name, as well as screenshots of the listing and confirmation of my payment to the seller. i think it took me all of 30 minutes? and as a reward, i was gifted a new CPU, i did not even have to pay shipping. Seems fair.

    So, am I the only one that AMD treats like a criminal when requesting an RMA?

    i bought an EPYC cpu off ebay. it was listed as new, open box. what i received was a non working ES EPYC cpu in a EPYC box that had all the labels peeled off of it. i sent a request in to AMD to see if they would look at the ES CPU and if it could be made functional so that i was not out...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    well this forum used to primarily be tech related, as such, i though the recommendation fit well here. Seeings as how this place is primarily for arguing about politics now, (never-mind the fact that this specific post is about an OPERATING SYSTEM) i thought recommending a free way to not only...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    yes, and that is an aside to my point. most of us have several computers in our house, maybe kids with computers, ETC. why not use SAMBA4 and AD? it is literally free, and will run on any old pc laying around, AND no more fighting local accounts.

    Alternative P2V option for VMWare

    I always just use gparted and make an image of the computer and then clone it onto the vm. I have never had great results with those 'pc to vm' utilities.

    You guys know SAMBA4 can be a domain controller right? So like, a Raspberry Pi with SAMBA4 installed and you could domain join all your home computers and enjoy all he other features of windows pro also. I see it as an absolute win.

    Glass tubing

    on the edges where the glass tubing is cut, you really should heat it slowly to a dull red and then let it cool naturally. this de-strains the fractured edge that can otherwise be a shatter point in glass. will this matter on your build? probably not unless there is stress on the tubing.

    Glass tubing

    You can use a mapp gas torch. If you use pyrex wall tubing and a mapp gas torch you can bend it the same way people bend the acrylic tubing. This is on my to do list for the next time i do a water cooled build. I have done some glass work, just not combined it with a pc water cooled build...yet.

    So if video card prices stay elevated for years, then what happens?

    true, the DEVs actually made some statements that make it clear that they are really putting effort into it being sooner rather than later, this time.

    So if video card prices stay elevated for years, then what happens?

    sometime in H2 this year, GPU prices will 'crash'. new cards will never go back to 'normal'. but they will go down some, and the used market will take a pretty good dive on older cards where the efficiency is pretty low. we have a massive wave of new products coming in from 3 vendors this...

    Daily Mining Profits

    So even if you are not a business, when you mine at a loss, that negative at payout comes out of what you mine at a profit, By the end of the year. Unless you manage to mine an entire year at a loss as an individual. But i would imagine the tax laws changing agian by 2023.

    Daily Mining Profits

    why do people (smaller home miners) stop mining when its 'not profitable'? are you cashing out to USD every day? or what? I try to mine the most when it is either low or not profitable because i get more coins for my hash power, then when the price goes up i am that much more ahead. plus...
