    So I bought a Titan... A770 (an Arc OC thread!)

    I'm not sure if these Intel cards are good for gaming as of now, but at this price they seem good for Blender rendering. With resizeable bar enabled it does speed up the rendering process atleast in Windows. I don't think Nvidia and AMD has this capability enabled in Blender yet.

    3090 backside ram

    I bought my Corsair watercooled 3090 FE used so I don't know if the thermal pads on the VRM were the original or not, but they were 1mm thick and not even touching the the plate. I ended up putting in 2mm thick which was too thick, but this type of Gelid pads seemed squishy so I scooped some out...

    AliExpress CPUs Legitimate?

    I never bought from that specific seller before, but last week I bought 2 x Ryzen 3800x for $164 each. It was just the procesor in a clam shell in pretty good condition and it works. Local sellers usually ask for $200-$250 around here. I'm sure there are legit sellers out there.

    Any point to using 2 video cards nowadays?

    I just have a system with a RX 6700 and 6800 for GPU rendering in Blender. Nothing super fancy but still faster than 1 video card. I can't really see a use for multiple video cards for gaming purposes.

    Thermalright AM5 Secure Frame

    Could they have designed the frame differently so it could help cool and/or spread the heat if the frame made contact with the CPU and had some fins? May not be too much air movement down that low, but still it might look cooler.

    Team Red Miner R-Mode 10% Efficiency Improvement

    R-Mode also works for the 6700XT and 6800 non XT. Each 6700XT was using around +20 watts more compared to when I was using NBminer with around the same hash rates, but the 6800 was only about 12 watts less. I haven't found anyway to improve the efficiency for 6750XT.

    Are you talking about a RTX 3080? I'm not exactly sure when the way etherium is mined now will end, but I have heard as early as the first quarter of 2022. It's not likely you will get your return of investment anytime next year or the year after the way things will change next year. There are...

    RTX 3070 and 3060Ti that are full hash rate would be the best, but its unlikely you can find them at a reasonable price. If you don't already have a decent video card to mine with it may already be too late into get into mining.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    At the time when this thread was started RTM mining was much easier to mine. Now its really not worth it on most computers. Even something with a 3900x, or a CPU with 16 or more threads you won't get much out of it. I'm glad started back in September, but I'm probably going to stop now.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    It seems tricky to get MSR to start and I don't know if it's like this for anyone else. I have restart computer, quickly enter log in password in from Windows 10 and launch the miner as administrator. If you take too long entering your password it won't start with MSR.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    I switched to Flockpool a few weeks ago when the it was easier to mine Raptoreum, but I seem to be getting less than half and maybe a 3rd of what I was doing before. Flockpool wasn't at the top of Raptoreums mining pools when I started. Maybe it's time to try another pool to see if its any better.

    Need help getting all 6gpu's working on a MSI x470 Ryzen 5 3400g

    I have this link bookmark for MSI B450 motherboard, but maybe perhaps this may be similar to your motherboard. You should try without M.2 drive to see if you can get into bios with the 6 GPUs.

    I have a rig with 8 and 16 Gb. The Windows drive memory is also expanded more than the total of the GPU memory plus RAM. I left the rig as is and let it reconnect so I wouldn't have to setup another rig. The reconnecting seems to happen regardless of AMD or Nvidia GPU once there are more than 1...

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    I have 2 NiceHash mining with my GPUs and a Raptoreum miner app running at the same time. I saved one thread so its not so laggy, but it seems like more GPUs mining makes the Raptoreum hashrate a little lower compared to the other rig.

    Raptoreum CPU mining earning $5.50/day right now on 5950X

    Is Rplanet Pool any good for mining Raptoreum. I started a week ago and it seemed okay seems okay compared to some other pools. It was paying out by the hour today, but now it seems to just keep accumulating the balance. Is anyone else having the same problems?

    I've been using NiceHash NBMiner for several months now, but recently I have 1 GPU running on it and 5 GPUs with SRBMiner on a single rig. When I have NBMiner using 1 GPU the run time has been over 1 day now, but when I have multiple GPUs it may only run for 1-8 hours before relogging/restarting...

    Question about current state of crypto mining

    I have seen pics of the 3090 modified with the backplate covered with aluminum heatsinks and with. I would probably do that if I had one.

    Rig offline but video cards keep working

    Its really not good to run things at default settings too long. It's more than likely you will need to tune the cards down to get to something stable and this will require lots of trial and error.

    $5-$6K budget for bitcoin starter rig with 2 cards - what hardware do you guys recommend? Eventual goal is 6-9 cards.

    You do not refresh your browser. Que line always starts around around Thursday 7:00 am Pacific. It's random where you end up waiting when it starts.

    $5-$6K budget for bitcoin starter rig with 2 cards - what hardware do you guys recommend? Eventual goal is 6-9 cards.

    Prebuilt with proprietary parts may not be the best for mining. I have seen a Dell prebuilt that required you to actually have a modern GPU in the primary slot with all of the pins connected before the system can even post. Using too many 4 way PCIe splitters can damage the motherboard. Be...

    RTX 3090 may seem expensive to purchase but they are not LHR and it's more likely to have a better rate for ROI assuming you can keep it cool and running long enough.

    $5-$6K budget for bitcoin starter rig with 2 cards - what hardware do you guys recommend? Eventual goal is 6-9 cards.

    AMD site is another good place to try to get a card. It's not going to be easy competing with so many other people from around world. I did manage to get a 6800 XT. If the market can stay around this current rate it would take about 230 days to get my money back plus the cost of electricity for...

    $5-$6K budget for bitcoin starter rig with 2 cards - what hardware do you guys recommend? Eventual goal is 6-9 cards.

    It's hard to say what will happen in 2022 at this point. As Travm already said 6 month ROI isn't realistic. How are you even going to get the most efficient GPUs for mining? Most GPUs are overpriced that it could take about a year to see a ROI for each GPU. I hope your free electricity doesn't...

    RX 6700 XT

    I have been mining with the RX 6700 XT with Adrenalin 21.3.1 software on NiceHash NBMiner 16.2. It's not the most recent AMD driver, but the only one I have been able to get NBMiner to work with over the last 2 months. NBMiner updated to 16.3 with NVidia LHR features. Does anyone know if 6700 XT...
