    Nomination: DC'er of the Month: November 2022

    Not too worried about the burning connectors. After some looking around it's not real wide spread of a issue. Just a few isolated ones have done it. We all know folding does not us a lot of power. LOL. By the time I get some cash saved up for one it will prob be after the first of the year...

    Nomination: DC'er of the Month: November 2022

    It was not a fast mow down. You have been putting out some good numbers. So it took me a bit to get you reeled in. The nomination was givin because it was deserved. That's a long time folding especially on 1 team. I am thinking my next addition to my folding will be a 4080 or a 4090. The 4090...

    Yet another 'help me upgrade my desktop' post - GTX 970 build

    There are plenty of great deals out there for a upgrade. Moving forward just a few gens on his cpu would make a ton of difference. Great example is move to a 8700K on a Z370. Can be bought cheap. My daughter had hers with a 3070ti and did not see a major bottleneck in gaming. Another great deal...

    Slowest cpu any one has put a 3080 RTX in, I’ll go first

    This thread makes me want to fire up my old Sony Viao with Intel P4 and see if it will still run. If it does then see what it will run.

    WTB budget Gaming PC Desktop for a Senior Citizen

    Having windows or not should not be a issue. Easy to download a copy to a flash drive and load. Windows keys are available easy enough and not too pricy. A decent 8th gen Intel and a 1060 would work good for him. Case wise if you can't reuse his. They can be bought for less than 50 bucks. A 450w...

    Slowest cpu any one has put a 3080 RTX in, I’ll go first

    4 2080ti's on a 2600k? Or a 3070ti and a 2070 super on a 2600k? Don't game on them but do have those running.

    Ideal GPU tier pricing.

    I would agree if there was not so many jobs available.

    Ideal GPU tier pricing.

    Consider EVERYTHING involved. That fraction is a large one. Vienna sausages at my local Dollar General was 33 cents a can on sale and 50 cents a can regular price. So if it's not inflation why is it $1.75 a can now? If I go by the thinking of you it's because the manufacture trying to gouge me...

    Ideal GPU tier pricing.

    How many more things do I need to say everyone pays more for to prove inflation? It is what it is. Not that we like it.

    Ideal GPU tier pricing.

    And to think I was paying $1.79 a gallon for gas 2 1/2 Yeats ago and now its over $3 a gallon. Inflation effects everything. Not justifying it just saying it is what it is.

    Ideal GPU tier pricing.

    I normally buy used cards. I ha e bought a few new ones over the years. My two latest are a 3080 12g and a 3070ti. They were bought before prices have dropped. I was looking to upgrade and the used market was at or close to retail. A few years ago I pi ked up a 2080ti KingPin for $1000. At the...

    Most powerful PWM controllable pump?

    As a option is run the dual top in the next room and a single at the PC to pump back. Run them at a lower speed. Should give proper flow depending on water blocks and rads plus distance. I personally have run my pumps at 100 percent unless I was getting to much flow with only 1 block. Not...

    Most powerful PWM controllable pump?

    So instead of pumping water into the next room. Pump water back to the PC. That way no need for pwm. Pump can run at 100 percent and you won't hear it.

    Is It Worth Upgrading My GPU At This Point?

    So you are saying when I had my 2600k system with a GTS 450 and upgraded to a 1060 then 1080 and finally a 1080ti I didn't see a difference? So if I run any games on that same system with the 2080ti I would not see a difference? You sir do not see that there will be an improvement in his gaming...

    Minor farm upgrades

    I picked up a MSI 2070 super that was power locked. It came from a pre build. I could not get it to put out the same ppd as my EVGA 2070 super. So I went to techpowerup and found a power unlocked MSI bin file. I flashed the bin file (which was for 100 or 150 mz higher core clock) too the vbios...

    4090 folding CPU bottleneck

    I was referring to the 8700k as the example. I do have one but was thinking it being top tier of its time would maybe we could set a benchmark off of it. I'm more thinking of memory bus speeds and cache available on the older cpus. Speed wise I'm sure it will work without issues. Just thinking...

    4090 folding CPU bottleneck

    For folding or any DC. What CPU will start to bottleneck a 4090 for ppd? I know it's early after it's release but starting to wonder. Will a 8700k on a z370 running pci-e 3x lower ppd? Asking for a friend. LOL. It is something that should be looked into. I have 4 2080ti's that put out just...

    Who is still using a Sandy Bridge era chip

    Everything has been moved to my bigger case. So after a upgrade to my daughter's I had left a z370 Taichi and some old gpus. Stuck all these in the 780t and have it up and running with a 1080 a 1080ti and a Titian. It pulls a good bit of power per ppd but I am making good use of case. Still have...

    Who is still using a Sandy Bridge era chip

    Last weekend I moved my 2600k system to a bigger case with more rads. It would not stay cool enough in the 780t. It's happier in the 7000d.

    Asus P8P67 WS Revolution bios issue
