    Some HP SAS SSD drives will fail after 40,000hrs of operation.

    I wonder why they did this in the first place or perhaps a genuine oversight?. For those with HPE SAS drive listed here, might be a good idea to upgrade the firmware according to the HP site otherwise they might fail after 40K hours or around Oct 2020.

    WTB: Ryzen 3950X Closed

    Looking for my next distributed computing (DC) build. Can really utilize all the 16C/32T. The build will run 24/7, most likely to run at stock or perhaps tune it for performance-power efficiency, so I don't really need any of the silicon lottery chip. This will be my first AMD build. I've...

    I'm the second owner and I've this card for 4 years. The card full spec is here. All the three fans are working (no stuck or slow spinning fan). I've replaced the GPU thermal paste with Noctua NT-H1 and managed to reduce the temperature by a few °C when I first had the card. The card works fine...

    AMD’s New EPYC 7H12 CPU Offers Higher Clock Speed

    Moar power and the price is $$$$$. Threadripper 3000 64 cores if AMD does release for prosumer market would probably be at higher clock speed and higher power dissipation.

    Not sure if this should be in mining or DC forum. Another new DC coin called Medic Coin. They do award coins if you contribute to FAH but must be in their team.

    Einstein Badges

    I'm making a simple proposal for Einstein badges. See my post here in E@H message boards. I'm not sure how difficult it is for the project admin to set up the badges, assuming the admin agrees with this badge theme or perhaps it falls on deaf ears.... I believe badges can motivate crunchers...

    What did you do with your tax refund (if any)?

    If you have some non-W2 income, sometimes you over/under estimated the taxes paid to Uncle Sam after last minute (legit) deductions/contributions.
