    New NVIDIA Specialized Pascal 1060-based Cryptocoin Mining GPUs Photographed

    I'd like to see display output-less cards like this, but with regular pci back panel plates (and a better heatsink) for sli/crossfire/dx12 multi gpu(lol) use Obviously they would need to be cheaper than a regular GPU for it to be worthwhile

    How thick a self-adhesive thermal tape should be?

    I would say 1mm is probably best In the case of ram you are allowing for the differences in height of each of the 8 chips (per side), as ram is so precision manufactured the differences are usually tiny on older motherboards the vrm's sometimes had a big enough variation in heights that you...
