    Trouble mining eth with one specific card

    I have been mining eth just fine with some 1060s/1070s, today I added in a 2060 KO. It fires right up in phoenix or nbminer via nicehash, shows like 28mh/s stock, but no matter what, it seems to show 0mh/s effective at the pool. Works fine on octopus though. Any idea? All the cards are using the...

    Water cooling noob takes on another custom loop

    *for the latest 2nd build, jump to page 4. The first few pages feature my ITX custom loop. If you want to see the second build with the ATX case, page 4 is where it starts! Enjoy. So I got it in my head that an ITX build would be cool. Not only that, but I wanted it to be really powerful in as...

    What's taking so long? Corsair modular cable for RTX 12-pin

    Corsair announced they would have a modular cable for the new RTX founders cards using the 12 pin connector, but I think the cable is harder to find than the GPUs themselves. What's going on here? I wouldn't think it would be too difficult for a PSU manufacturer to run some wire through a...

    Rtx 3000 series undervolt discussion

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    Let's talk about performance, not availability. I've been thinking about this card as being a titan replacement. However, the titans have always been nvidia produced, not aib.
