    Network Shared Folder Configuration

    1) Yes, all that is needed is the IP. To access the files all that would be needed is to type \\IP\ into the file explorer and you'd get right in. Most IP scanning tools even show Windows shares automatically if it finds them, so even if an attacker wasn't aware of there being any shares all it...

    i7 3rd generation faster than Ryzen9 3900x?

    Does this guy not understand the very basics of electricity? What kills a CPU is high wattage over time, obviously. Wattage is voltage x current (Watt's Law). Higher voltage, higher wattage, but equally, lower current, lower wattage. So If you double voltage but halve the current, the wattage...

    Enable SLI with Two geforce GT730

    I'll wait. Not every day you get to see people perform literal miracles. BTW; the guy in the video has his i7 pegged at like 20% max. The GT 730 is the bottleneck, as you can see by the constant 99% usage. So the CPU isn't relevant. Even if it was; the 8700 is a relatively modern high-end gaming...

    Enable SLI with Two geforce GT730

    I agree the game is fun. All I'm saying is, it's a decently demanding game and 1080p Ultra is not achieveable with a playable framerate on a GT 730. That's absurd. Here is a video with someone playing with a GT 730 on Low settings at 60% resolution scaling and they barely scrape by 30 FPS, which...

    Framerate: 17 FPS That is not playable.

    Rtx2060 super making clicking sound, but not from fans

    Something's vibrating ever so slightly and resonating throughout the card. Like Tatty_One says it's a result of the PSU delivering power in a certain way that causes resonating in the card, and could be solved with a new PSU.

    EK Launches Active Backplate For Zotac Trinity RTX 3080/3090

    It's not that simple. GDDR6X runs bloody hot. Having it fixed means making a new memory chip. With the massive shortage already for G6X, there is no way NVIDIA or Micron would be willing to scrap all their work and start from scratch to make a new memory chip. Unless you're mining, this isn't an...

    That is eBay-$5-item level marketing jargon. Wow, that is hilariously bad.

    Phoenix Miner Compromised?

    Nicehash isn't a scam. They just suck at PR and the founder (djezo) is an actual lunatic (I don't use words like that lightly) who really shouldn't be with the company. So while I wouldn't trust NH now, I have done so in the past and have gotten paid very fairly for my mining. So if this whole...

    be quiet! Announces Pure Rock Slim 2 CPU Cooler and MC1 Series M.2 SSD Heatsinks

    When was the last time anyone bought a 100mm fan? 2011? 100mm hasn't been a normal fan size in a decade. 92mm is still abundant for when 120mm is too large.

    Nicehash Ad on TPU main site

    My mistake! I thought it was Nicehash being advertised in general, not the severity of it visually that was the problem being brought up. Then I'm unsure why people are discussing the morals/ethics of mining here, seeing as it's apparently OK to advertise it on the front page, as long as it's...

    Nicehash Ad on TPU main site

    When I posted that comment my PC had just turned on, so the tab was fresh :) This was taken just now after about 15 refreshes. Or are we only talking about the page-wide banner ad?

    AMD Radeon "Where Gaming Begins Ep. 3 Liveblog:" Radeon RX 6700 XT Announcement

    Beating the 3070 isn't that impressive considering it's only $20 less MSRP and doesn't have DLSS. But good on ya, AMD. Not a bad card overall, all things considered. Now to see if they'll actually make more than a couple dozen.

    Nicehash Ad on TPU main site

    It is valid. Modern GPUs (30 series) can earn upto (and above) 8 USD per day. The 3090 earned 12 USD per day before the latest price dip. At the average US cost of electricity (13.19c per KWH) that amounts to just over a dollar per day (13.19/3 [assuming ~330W power target for 3090] = 4.4c per...

    Gaming Performance Tested On 'Worn Out' RTX 2080 Ti Mining Card

    Now, if they could test a card that's been through normal wear and tear (4 hours of gaming every day?), that would be interesting. Thermal expansion should actually degrade performance more than running 24/7 as the die expands and shrinks, IMO. Brand new card VS. mining card after new TIM and...

    Bitcoin price suddenly surges to 3-year high

    Sales tax isn't normal outside the US, btw. The only thing they could do here is charge a crypto fee, which concievably could happen, sure. I don't really care though, I'm just in it to make a quick buck ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Bitcoin price suddenly surges to 3-year high

    I'm not American :) Your politics do not concern me. PS. Hive seems to be paying out a F-ton right now, I just doubled my estimated earnings from my rig in the last hour. From 0.01 ETH per 24h (which was worth ~21USD) to 0.02453 ETH per 24H (now worth 42.25 USD!). I'm sure it won't last long...
