Oh shit talking isnt allowed here anymore?
This is why i prefer hunting down good used deals. The 1070ti's i bought this year still had 1.5 years warranty left from EVGA when i picked them up
Just need to by the cards from manufactures that allow warranty transfer.
I ran that host on the absolute edge of what it would run at for over 5 years, so I’m not surprised it smoked. I am a little surprised it popped the breaker though - wonder what would cause that.yikes
Put it on Facebook Marketplace as a "low end gaming machine". I cannot believe how many old systems are getting sold being labeled like that.And another one down - I just set my core2quad 9650 to "No New Tasks". Purchased in 2008, I ran it over clocked as far as it would go until roughly June 2012 when I picked up my Ivy Bridge host. It ran 24x7 as a server since, and has been running rosetta@home 100% since March 28th. It first crashed 2 weeks ago, and is now only staying up about 12 hours at a time before crashing. I think it's probably just a bad stick of ram, but given that 2 Raspberry Pi 4s do the same amount of work for 1/10th the power draw, there isn't much reason to keep it online.
Sadly EXT64 's identical slightly less broken board also no worky. I don't plan on adding DDR4 based rigs unless on the super cheap as I've been waiting to see what DDR5 era has to bring. I only have one DDR4 box. Honestly, the DDR3 stuff works just fine on a lot of DC stuff. The 2011 v1/v2 boards are just still to this day crazy stupid expensive. If you want to send me any "good" setups, I'm all ears...lol.Get gud scrub. CPUs are pretty easy to come by, gpus are a bit harder.
Also I don't see Coleslaw getting current gen, just maybe upping to 2011-3.
