    Anyone else using Calyx Institute for 4G/5G access?

    I found this post on reddit for easily connecting it to your home network with a cheap USB-C dock/hub. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H2ZS1B5?psc=1

    Anyone else using Calyx Institute for 4G/5G access?

    I just got my mifi today and got it setup on the right APN. Are there any tips or tricks I should know about either about mods for the inseego m2000 or best practices for increasing range or performance? I'm considering using this as a full replacement for home and mobile internet considering...

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    I've used them exclusively since 2008 after my last evga board. The closest I came to figuring it out was one system wouldnt have the issue if I just used it like a server with only power and network connections. Edit: I just realized I have three of their x570 boards alone. Not pictured is the...

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    I'm not going to be of any use to you but I've had this same issue on several Asus boards over the last ten years.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Huh, I also had installed Win11, ended up with TPM errors and got a 00 code a few times all on my dark hero/5950x. Just saw there was a newer bios so guess I'll try that out.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Keep an eye out for Samsung MZ-4LB3T8HMLA as well. Ebay seems to have the price falling pretty fast. $375 3.84 TB Gen3 x4 drive. Just be aware it needs a sled or card as it's "M.3". I used this but I think I will eventually switch to this U.2 sled and this m.2 converter.

    RTX 3090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Leaderboard

    Double check your effective clocks. Its a really good score but you might be overshooting the OC leaving some time running at the higher clocks on the table. I personally don't like to see my effective more than one speed bin off from what I'm aiming for.

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    I'm no materials expert but I have a hard time believing vulcanized rubber would react with anything in a 10% solution of distilled water. It's the black tubing, not clear. https://www.usplastic.com/catalog/files/specsheets/NorpreneA60G.pdf

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    I have Tygon rubber tubing and was using Mayhem's Nuke XT-1 concentrate. The only thing I can think of is it was biological OR something related to my Little Giant pump since it has a white housing and compressor wheel and was making some noise before I pulled it. But I seriously doubt a pump...

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    It may seem counter intuitive but this is not the way the physics of the system works. You need water volume over time and surface area. If you assume a system is balanced (the heat plate can transmit energy at a sufficient rate to the coolant and the rads have enough surface area, etc) these...

    Holy shit. It was 33°C here today outside. Fuck that. I have to ask, why not get a portable AC unit or something? We have like 80-95% humidity where I'm at so it is just unimaginable to not have AC. Edit: I sound like a real jerk here. Not intended, I swear.

    What's up with your temps? 81°C average is crazy ... I don't remember seeing any 3090s average under 1800mhz boost clock and you are only at 1660mhz average. Sorry, not trying to be hypercritical.

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    There is a FF14 benchmark now. I've been running it tonight and seeing what it will cooperate with. If the bench is anything like the game it seems much more kind to overclocking now.

    I get more consistent results by locking it. I can get a little bit extra score when I go full curve but it seems more finicky on my FTW3U.

    RTX 3090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Leaderboard

    Your card works in 15mhz chunks called bins. If you are just setting a flat OC across the curve use intervals of 15. So you would want 90 or 105. Try this as a starting point. (your power limits may be different; to lock your voltage press 'L' after you've selected your OC/voltage node) Here...

    Room ambient was 62F. I spent literal days with those fucking broken cards dancing between not crashing and hitting the power limit while underclocking. On the FTW3U with the bad voltage controller if you ever hit power limit you would be clock limited the rest of the benchmark run. I'm on...

    Figure out what rev you are on since the XC3 bios wouldn't be compatible with a rev 1.0 card for full performance. Jacob Freeman is very specific about this for some reason so I'd look into it just to be safe. You can find your rev number on the pcie connector tail thing. My rev'd card gets up...

    3950x to 5950x temps normal to increase!?

    Hey, looks like you have an Asus board. Turn off FMAX in the PBO settings if it's on. Also, if you're PBO I'd kick your vcore to auto and see what happens. Also, just a personal recommendation but I'd reset to defaults and do a full power cycle between bios upgrades and especially between...

    Oh yeah, I would definitely recommend them but the quality on the vivo is really good for the price. I think the Amazon Basics is rated for more weight though.

    I actually planned for that and got this monitor arm for the top one. My other two are just the AB arms. Looking at the price of the Amazon Basics arms might as well just get two of the first.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    The hardest part was getting the old cooler off. Use a toothbrush and 90% or higher iso to clean off all the old thermal pad and TIM. I used a piece of plastic from my motherboard packaging to spread a very thin layer of thermal paste across the die and the cold plate. Torque the screws as...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    I may be wrong but it's my understanding that FE cards don't support AIB bios options like the KPE 520w/1kw and the like. Happy to be wrong here since I don't own one and have only been reading about them in other forums. On my FTW3U I can run pretty much any bios since its a reference board and...

    Honestly, I'm still super happy about my FTW3U at the original MSRP. You guys got the better deal money wise with the FE but I'm enjoying tinkering with different BIOS configs. I also got the Optimus water block which was a big positive for me since they don't produce for every board out there...

    The processor tends to do a pretty good job of clocking down and staying relatively cool. That peak is still 100w higher than my peak 3950x power and the 3950x will sit just under 100w at near full load stock with pbo. <- 5950x <-3950x

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    The queue system is broken in that they are only producing certain SKUs but have a crap ton of SKUs listed on their product pages. For instance, I'm on the notify list for the 3060TI XC Gaming. The list hasn't moved in a month. Hell, this card only ever had shipments on it's release date and...
