    Corsair AX1600i PSU is it worth to buy it/? for futureproof?

    Hard to believe you will need a 1600watt psu for your build. I have 2x 3090s running in my 5600x PC and i'm only using an 850 watt psu lol. What else could possibly be using all your power up to 1600 watts? Water cooling, fans, ssds don't use that much. If worried about future proofing...

    sounds troublesome.. i have a gigabyte 3080ti as well.. hope i don't run into something like this lol would have been nice if they told you what was 'defective' about it.

    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    You sure you can sustain 136 mh/s with no rejected shares/overheating? haven't heard of anyone going above like 125-128 mh/s for 3090s lol.

    Forgive me Father, for I have sinned...

    How does the step up program work? Does it have to be new cards? Can it be cards from anywhere (e.g. ebay) or must be from an official retailer, etc? And do you need original receipt? Thanks

    High End Graphics Card Stock 6900 XT vs 3090

    Notice that I did not mention rx6800.. I only said 6800 XT and above. Also I did not mention or compare 3070s. Have to compare apples to apples. 6900xt vs 3090. 6900xt is just way worse at mining than 3090. What I said above holds true for high end cards. Mid-range cards like...

    High End Graphics Card Stock 6900 XT vs 3090

    The reason 6800xt/6900/6900xts are more readily available is because they don't serve a dual purpose for gaming/mining like 3090s do. The high end radeons have a poor RoI for mining and that is why you see more stock since only gamers want them. If you are a gamer, then it will work for your...

    How long do keyboards last?

    Anything with a plasticky cheap feeling will probably not last too long. However I have several old IBM Model M keyboards (similar to some of the posters above) and they are built like a tank. There were a bunch getting discarded at an office workplace in the 90s and I saved them. They are...

    3080 tuf repairs

    For $1100.. I would have shopped around to some electronics repair places to see what they would quote.. E.g. a repair shop like "Northridge Fix". Based on their youtube videos, I feel like they can literally re-solder and fix anything. :)

    Lol.. the 480 gb ssd they gave me died after about 2 weeks. I plugged it into several PCs and none can recognize it anymore as a storage device. Wonder if i can take it back for a replacement.

    no idea what im doing, 1080ti FTW3 hybrid low numbers

    I don't have a 1080ti and have never verified this myself.. but i did read somewhere miners now include the ethpill already and using t-rexminer you can just set the memory timing straps high enough to get equivalent hashrates of an ethpill.

    symtomps of dying ssd?

    More than likely it's windows bloatware causing your PC to slow down. Over time, when you install all these background apps (and real time virus / malware scanners) and they are vying for your hard drives attention. It will slow down. You should maybe run windows in safe mode or a linux boot...

    AMD 5900X with AMD wraith Prism temps

    Places to buy mining cards in bulk.

    More than likely they will cancel your order. I've had a bunch of orders with them and they all got cancelled eventually after a few months. They just say the manufacturer has discontinued this item and the order will no longer be fulfilled.

    Looking for help for new pc - whats the best value in desktop pc's today?

    I prefer ryzen for bang for the buck. Prebuilts can be better deals if you buy it on sale with coupon codes/student discounts etc. If you don't game or do any computing intensive tasks, you don't really need a desktop.. a laptop would work just as well. GPU prices are going down as more...
