    PSU blown?

    I also got a HX1200i blown with only modest load from 1 GPU mining ETH, pop sound then burnt smell. It appears something is indeed wrong with this series. I otherwise have 6 RMx and 1 AX1600i, all are perfect.

    AMD BC-160 Cryptocurrency Mining Card Surfaces with 72 MH/s in ETH

    Probably will take a long time to break even, not sure if it will be a good investment.

    ASRock X570S PG Riptide

    I really like the x1 slots have opening for longer cards, will be a life saver for me. Too bad I have got the Gigabyte X570S UD that does not have it.

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 With Noctua Cooling Appears

    Finally a card where fans should live longer. Maybe they should have used A12x15 to make it a 3-slot card.

    New NVIDIA Broadcast App 1.3 Update Improves Noise Removal, Adds Support for More Cameras, and Reduces System Impact

    I am actually using Audio Technica AT2035 w/ Scarlette Solo, which on their own are very directional and pretty good at shielding background noise, but RTX Voice did help further but interfere in the case I mentioned.

    New NVIDIA Broadcast App 1.3 Update Improves Noise Removal, Adds Support for More Cameras, and Reduces System Impact

    I have been using RTX Voice, when it is being used on its own it's amazing which cuts off background noise so much that my friend sometimes had to ask to see if I am disconnected. However, if you don't use a headphone of sort and you use speaker, any sound from the PC tends to interfere the RTX...

    GIGABYTE Reportedly Refuses to RMA Customer's GP-P750GM Power Supply

    Just adding my experience, personally I have been using Corsair for over half a decade and I have their entire line of RMx (550W - 1000W), plus an AX1600i. It's more of an ecosystem thing that I can swap the PSUs around if I keep buying from them (they have a chart showing the inter-brand...

    Cryptocoin Value and Market Trend Discussion

    Part of it is EIP1559 where people were worried and sold their cards before so, though the recent ETH price surge has largely offset its effect, at least for now. Another factor being the imminent "threat" of moving over to PoS (2022 for now, iirc) which once implemented GPU price can fall off...

    PSU Expert Aris Mpitziopoulos Responds to Gigabyte Statement on GP-P750/850 GM Design Flaws

    Right, I was wrong as I thought I finished reading all the conversations.

    CHIA IS NOT WORTH IT ANYMORE

    Chia is a scam, totally not worth it. It kills SSDs like nothing else and took all the harddrives in the market of all sizes. Nothing is going to the moon except the harddisk and SSD price. Forget about Bram he's too late to the game. PS: Chia farm size = 96 TB, +16 TB monthly.

    PSU Expert Aris Mpitziopoulos Responds to Gigabyte Statement on GP-P750/850 GM Design Flaws

    Very disappointing for Gigabyte, with all my trust on their recent AM4 motherboards because of the seemingly good VRMs, now I have to think twice if an OPP was configured in a similar ill-educated manner. Also, I could not comprehend the intention behind setting a higher OPP - you already told...

    PNY Announces LX2030 and LX3030 M.2 NVMe Gen3 x4 SSDs for Chia Plotting

    They maybe DOA but not only because of the extended ROI, but more of Chia plotting has largely migrated to using RAMDisk or mergefs to save SSD wear. Using RAMdisk the wear is cut to a quarter of the original method, which a 1TB with 1.8PWB could now handle almost 0.5 PB plotting which exceeds...

    Sabrent Rides the Chia Cryptocurrency Wave, Announces "Plotripper" SSDs with up to 54,000 TBW Endurance

    While I understand as of now the general public (guess that's what "we" refers to) don't strictly need crypto in their daily life, demand can be (artificially) created and who knows what crypto maybe good for in a positive way in the future. I am also against the huge power consumption of PoW...
