    lower end touchscreen laptops - Yoga types?

    It's summer and my kids are driving me nuts. They spend most of their time in minecraft type low end games so specs don't need to be crazy. I have an 8ft workbench with three desktops on it. I have a total of 5 kids and 3 desktops. They luckily play nicely together most of the time in games when...

    Quiet and cheap SFP+ 10G switch with more than 2 ports?

    Title is pretty much everything. I have two systems running 10G right now but now I want to add my desktop and probably another server. I have had a taste of 10G and now 1G just wont do. How quiet? a lot quieter than an R710. My server rack is in my walk in closet attached to my bedroom. I've...

    WTB AM4 ITX mobo & Mobo for Xeon 2670V1

    AM4: I had one of those $50 biostar motherboards but had to RMA it. Newegg refunded me instead of sending me another. I won't be overclocking in the ITX so chipset probably doesn't matter to me much. I think everything has NVME slots and thats really the only thing I need Xeon I've had a dell...

    RDP only allowed on domain

    I work remotely 100% of the time. The company laptop is shit and has TM and a bunch of nanny trash on it. I use one of my machines and just RDP into the work machine when I actually have to. I have to VPN into work on both machines just to RDP into the work laptop in the same room as me. Here...

    OLED Screens - have it on my laptop

    I found a mint condition Lenovo Yoga X1 with the OLED recently with the 6600u and the OLED screen for a decent price and after more than 24 hours with this machine I really wish I could buy an 8th gen CPU with a screen like this! Really all this screen has done is make me 10x more likely to buy...

    powercolor RMA --> worst company ever?

    They emailed me a confirmation that they received my card on March 6th. This was well after the tracking shows they received it but oh well moving on right? Emailed them APr 2 to see what the holdup was and a generic processing email. I haven't heard anything else from them not any kind of...

    I've been on dwarfpool for a very long time but the site has been down longer than I'm comfortable with. I haven't read anything much and the shares keep submitting but I think its time to bail to a different pool. Anybody have some suggestions?

Anybody know of any around $100 on newegg or amazon or somebody else thats good? I'm seeing backorders on motherboards even so I know things are nuts right now. I'm pretty...

    large scale burst setups?

    Yeah theres some burst threads... Lets just talk specifically about scaling burst rigs up here. I'm sitting here with a ryzen 7 with a bunch of internal drives and every USB3 port also plugged. What are my best options for ramping things up? I have an R710 home server but the C2100 has a lot...

    dont touch nicehash

    yes its back but read the words carefully. The balance they owe doesn't have any promise of being paid out in any way. They have simply said they'll announce by 1/31 when/if any funds will be returned. Don't be an idiot and just stay far far away from these scammers.

    smart plugs vs killawatt

    I'm getting kinda sick of swapping the kill a watt I have in and out. Can any of these smart plugs out there handle like 1200w and work for a mining rig for power monitoring and remote turn on/off? Or is there something else i should look into?

    mining on the 560's?

    What are you guys getting out of your 560's? I have tons of risers and other stuff sitting here and I'm really considering just ordering a bunch of these cards vs half as many say 570's. Is this a reasonable strategy or will you talk me out of it?

    I have quite a few plots partially made but for whatever reasons never completed. when I run xplotter from command line it plots at 1600 nonces/min but if I use the AIO it plots 10x that speed. What am I doing wrong here for plotting? its a 2670V1 8 core.

    2670V1 worth mining on? Bringing burst drives online

    Is there anything worth pointing one of these old 8 core Xeons at? I'm building a new desktop and this is being pushed into oddball VM duties while my R710 continues as the file server. I have some retired storage drives I'm plugging into burst tonight that'll be housed in this machine. its...

    building home NAS - which raid card?

    which 8 port raid card should I get? I'm building initially a 4 * 4tb raid 5 but I plan on expanding it to 8 drives as time goes on. The 4 drives I can cool properly in my previous desktop case but once it jumps up to 8 I need to move to a more NAS friendly case. I plan on using an SSD for the...

    worth firing up a 280x?

    I still have most of my non GPU hardware from back when I did a ton of mining back a ways. I have a 280x just sitting here doing nothing and several 1050ti's. Should I reassemble anything? I can get my hands on quite a few GPU's cheap if I wanted to but should I?

    is 55" 4k too big for monitor?

    I'm really tempted by the X850d Sony X850D Review (XBR55X850D, XBR65X850D, XBR75X850D, XBR85X850D) I write code all day and have started putting money aside for a big 4k tv as a monitor. I think 49" is probably the sweet spot for size/workspace. I'm used to multiple dell ultrasharp 24" 1080p...

    Merge monitors like eyefinity does

    The specific feature that I want is making my 24" ultrasharps act as a single screen so that portrait is more usable. Those super thin bezels are nice but things just get "stupid" when windows thinks of them as 2 monitors. At work I use a laptop that is Intel with an Nvidia card. Apparently the...

    chroma 4:4:4 on cheap 4k tvs?

    Any suggestions? Most of the decent priced ones I've been seeing aren't quite there. I'm a programmer so I want readability and don't need 60hz. I'm just getting sick of going 3 monitors wide to see everything I need to see. I'm thinking about adding a USB dock just to add more monitors but why...

    Anybody with some cliff notes? I still have some 750ti's and some oddball AMD's. and basically all of my mobo's, CPU's, RAM, PSU's so for purchases I would ONLY have GPU's to stock up on if GPU's are useful anywhere.

    Intel's crosspoint

    So where does this new Intel memory fall? On the marketing diagrams it is under DDR and above SSD's. So is the plan some kind of stepping stone between pcie based SSD's and RAM?

    WTB: Haswell quad core $200 and less

    I just turned off 3 rigs

    temps outside are approaching 90 and with rentals down in the 0.00087 with most of the straight mining coins are like half of that I decided to turn my 3 rigs that aren't currently rented OFF until prices spike again. Its just not worth the fight on some days.
