    Nicehash Ad on TPU main site

    That ad was certainly jarring and while it's certainly not easy on the eyes, I think it could have been substantially worse. Many large sites run far more intrusive ads. Passionate disagreements aside, I think we, the TPU community, have three options. Direct support (which I prefer), ads of...

    What it is really like to own a 5700-XT Recorded: 21/05/2020

    Junction temps of 110c are reportedly normal across all 5700-series cards but it is definitely odd that it's not kicking up fan speed. I was going to say the same thing as Regeneration. Especially it being a new card, I would reach out to Gigabyte's support. Never was too big of a fan of...
