    So I may have gotten an unwanted crypto miner

    Did you try disabling the Macrium Reflect and OneDrive in Startup? Also, what is that iCue? Maybe don't run that. Also, your Firefox and MS Edge are taking up criminal amounts of RAM, close all the tabs. Okay, so iCue is the RGB bullshit software from Corsair. Disable/uninstall it...

    Welp, auntjemima and I swapped our referral codes, and we're now happily mining with a 0.25% pool fee reduction. If anyone else using the Unmineable software wanna join in, let us know. Lower fee=higher payout for YOU. :D

    Which exchange to use?

    The main Binance banned US users (and some other countries, I think it's mainly for Asia). They made some kinda exchange, but it's a shadow of the main self. Gas fees are, indeed, supposed to be paid in ETH. As far as being ridiculous, I dunno, when I trade crypto on Coinbase, it...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    There's no need to RMA, just use the MSI AfterBurner program and set your own custom min. speed for the fans. I've been using it for years, and it has never failed to hold any and all of my settings for nVidia cards, ever (as long as you click the little diskette icon after you set it up the...

    This MS Edge stuff made my day today

    I was configuring a fresh Win 10 Pro install earlier today, specifically, the web browser and shiznit. I wanted the default to be Google Chrome. I opened MS Edge, then started typing "dow-nlo..", before I even finished typing, it prompted me with "Download Chrome". I was laughing so hard, as...

    can you mine on a gpu that has artifact

    This card specifically ain't gonna do anything, especially mining. For one, in Device Manager, it shows as having a problem. For another, it shows as having 0MB VRAM.

    Summertime mining

    Basically, the main problem to solve here is the airflow - air in, air out. The airflow, if inside, needs to be consistent - pump out as much as what you get in. It's similar to a closed up PC case. (At least that's what I think).

    Sell 5700XT for 6700XT?

    DISCLAMER: I am not a scalper. I just took advantage of the opportunity when it presented itself, MMKAY? That's kind of what I did. I bought a v56 about 2 years ago for $500, and used it the entire time (mining, of course), then I sold it a few months ago for $700+ on ebay. Badabing-badabang. So...

    Strange case of EVGA support. (By the way, is there an EVGA rep here that I can talk to?)

    I have an EVGA GTX1660Ti, with a defect. When it's installed in a machine, when just sitting at desktop, it seems to be okay. (Short version of the issue) As soon as I subject it to any amount of graphical stress, the fans ramp up to like 15000 rpm, and there is nothing I can do to change that...

    Mining Rigs freeze Problem

    Remove all of the risers and install the radeons one by one into the full-length PCI-E slot, test them all one by one, to see if it's a card problem (which is very likely, they are old). If the cards all check out, then install a riser and one working card, and test the risers one by one...

    Ugh, why people are still using NH is beyond me. There are so many more alternatives which are more reputable out there. I hope you have it set up to send the payouts to a non-NH wallet, at least.

    Nvidia drivers

    Eh, I don't think AMD drivers are necessarily bad. They are, however, clunky as f**k, because they were designed by engineers, to be used by the same engineers. They lack the average-user-friendly finesse; it's like the people that designed them used Windows 95 as the prime design example to be...

    Anyone else using cudominer?

    It's not dying, it's that you are using AMD cards to mine, which is mining at a loss. AMD cards have been garbage for mining for some months now. nVidia, on the other hand, are doing fine. You also need to tune each algo's parameters, instead of leaving them as "Automatic".

    Any mining that a can do on a laptop(VERY NEW TO MINING)

    You don't want to mine anything on a laptop. If anything, you could build a crappy desktop, with some powerful AMD CPU, and mine Monero (RandomX), since AMD CPUs pwn noobs on this algo, apparently, compared to Intel. Otherwise, at this point in time, it's simply gonna be a loss to build a mining...

    Who's planning to buy 5700(?) GPU

    Newegg's main distribution center is actually right there in California, you should just order online and they should ship it to you the next day, I would imagine. 5700 - $350 US 5700xt - $400 US

    Asus and their USELESS warranty. (they are at least trying now)

    MSI have been good to me recently, on multiple occasions. I have had bad RMA experiences with both Assus and Gigabyte, so I haven't bought anything of theirs for over 10 years now. I would buy an MSI board, or a graphics card any day.
