    Daily Mining Profits

    Nicehash kids, casuals and late-bandwagoners getting the fuck off of ETH and shutting down = Net difficulty falling = yield is up = music to my ears.

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    Like every trigger thread with either "bitcoin" or "nvidia" in the title. Casual observers or just people with an axe to grind using their keyboards as a therapy pillow that gets passed around the room. Alas, when grandpa yells at the TV, let him. It's far less energy to just agree with people...

    12tb Easystore External USB - $198.99 & 16TB - $299.99

    There was apparently some comedy a few days ago that people were uh... making off with some deals. Not sure if their orders shipped though. (Not mine)

    Metro: Exodus

    Thanks for the update. Did you resolve why PC shutdown during intro movies? Because launching game "400 times" to try to reproduce issue is not enough. 1200 is minimum (1800 recommended). Do you not take troubleshooting seriously?

    3080 12GB is LHRv3 and not supported by current LHR bypass. FWIW I wouldn't be surprised if that model never sees a bypass.

    Yeah it was disappointing when I got a 3080 Ti FE back when they were hard to get, aesthetics are so nice and holding it in your hands feels high quality. But temps were awful even at 90% fanspeed. And not mining but just looping Heaven benchmark. If NV does FE cards for 4000 series I'll be...

    NVIDIA fined USD $5.5 million for hiding how many gaming GPUs were sold to crypto miners

    Bingo. Shakedown was the word that immediately came to my mind as well. Because the question "How many GPU's went to miners?" is silly, since who defines what a "miner" is? Every kid with Nicehash installed on his gaming PC is a "miner". More than 2 GPU's? More than 8 GPU's? "How many GPU's...

    Gaming Chairs VS Office Chairs

    Hope you're not talking about the one from Costco. Just had to toss mine after about 20 months - seat and back cushions compressed and faux leather flaked and torn. All the different Serta and La-Z-Boy's variations you'll see in Office Depot and Staples and elsewhere all seem to be made in the...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    This is brilliant. Hands down the best encapsulation of the essence of this game that probably exists. Guy spent hundreds of hours with cinematic mods capturing and editing this into roughly perfection.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    If I'd only played Elden Ring, my next stop would be Demon's Souls on PS5 just because the level of polish is incredible. And it'll still have the most active PVP/MP of any of the other games. Sekiro is a more polarizing game that people either loved or hated, it's not really a souls game. I...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Yep, game is gorgeous. I'm taking a break from Elden Ring and finally giving Cyberpunk my first serious playthrough. OC'd 3090 + LG 48" 4K (G-Sync) and all settings and RT cranked. It's fantastic, smooth, pretty much flawless.

    5800X3D gaming review

    Well, an employee at MSI with custom MB, custom BIOS and brute forcing with LN2 is a grand canyon sized leap to then declare "it's overclockable". Certainly isn't a scenario thats going to be relevant to 99.9999% of the customer base. If anything, that minimal of an OC with that extreme of...

    Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows: Lifetime License $49.99

    "I never had an issue" is great but doesn't do much for the Office 2016 key I bought on ebay that wouldn't activate 4 months later. Or the Office 2013 Pro Plus keys that got blacklisted a few weeks after buying - I launched Excel 2013 and got a "Activation required" after it had already been...

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    Coincidentally *this* SIHOO caught my eye the other day, but then noticed pretty much all the reviews were from people that got the chair free through VINE. Looks like a decent chair with the features I want (mesh back, headrest, ergonomic), but not giving $800 to a chinese company for the...

    Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows: Lifetime License $49.99

    Activated =/= verified legit. Shady keys like this one appears to be ($50 you're dreaming if you think it's legit) typically get clipped/blacklisted eventually, so when you need to reinstall the key won't activate. All sorts of scams and exploits used by greymarket sellers to produce too good to...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Oh yeah. That was my early and so far really only farming spot. Equipping the yellow foul foot that gives you 50% more souls per kill and just circle strafing those little Vulgar Militiamen on horseback until I racked up 10K-30K souls. I got lucky and stumbled on the teleporter gate to that area...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    That's what it sounded like you were headed toward with being underleveled but going after dragons for 200+ retries, no offense :) If you can't get a boss in 10-15 tries, rethink, re-spec or re-gear, level up, come back. Mastering horse mounted combat has let me break through certain PITA area...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    And remember to actually level up the shield. I didn't on my Brass Shield at first, thinking "I'm not going to attack with it, so who cares about leveling up attack power". However, Guard Boost is the critical metric that leveling up the shield improves and I only discovered recently, meaning...

    ChaseTheBro, the Michael Jordan of PVP invasions. 1v1, 1v2, 1v3 - this guy pretty much never loses but he's humble. Watch his timing, spacing, patience, changing weapons on the fly to counter every build. Just entertaining to watch even if you don't like PVP...

    No offense but you're smart enough to have found your way to this forum, don't fall for silly too-good-to-be-true scams. The reason nobody legit sells a 3070 for $469 is because they don't need to. There's no reason for it. The part you are missing is the seller ptobably has experience with and...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Torch is cool, but if you find yourself in a dark dungeon surrounded by a mob and need the left hand free to shield block or parry, switching from torch to shield can mean its suddenly pitch black.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    PSA for caves and catacombs and dark areas in general: buy a lantern and equip it on your pouch (the menu that appears when you hold down Y on the controller), and never have to fiddle with changing your left hand to the torch again. Pouch is also great for summon sign items and other crap you...

    The game progression map may be helpful to have up on a secondary screen while playing.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Spamming magic from distance doesn't feel like EZmode? I'm curious because that was my concern when considering which class for my first run-through. I went pure STR greatsword build, but then again always having to be under the feet of the bosses swinging at kneecaps does get old.
