    [US] GPU Stock Status (Microcenter , Newegg)

    Since my local Fry's Electronics had gone out of business, there is not a single PC components store to serve the population of 7 million people in my area, except the few Best Buy stores. I hope Micro Center will expand to here one day. I yearn for the days when I could go into a store and pick...

    [US] GPU Stock Status (Microcenter , Newegg)

    Hopefully those AMD AIBs will see the stock not moving and drop prices.

    [US] GPU Stock Status (Microcenter , Newegg)

    I don't think prices have gone down either. $500 for a 1660 Super is still too much.

    Is there a reason that Prime 95 is no good? I have this kit. It is on the QVL for the mobo I believe, at lease from G Skill site it listed the mobo as compatible. https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-64gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232916

    The PSU was plugged into a UPS. The CMOS battery was 4 years old. The PSU was 2 years old, bought new when I did the build.

    ??? Huh? I think I will run some stress tests tonight when I am done with my work. I actually gamed on it last night for couple of hours, even though it was not a demanding game at all. I hate these kinds of troubleshooting.

    I have 2 sets that are both 3200MHz. Maybe the 3600MHz set is stressing the CPU memory controller too much? But should I run memtest first? Or Prime95?

    Computer just died

    Okay, I need some help with this one. I figure troubleshooting is going to take a while. I went to get lunch, then grabbed the backup PSU. When I was done, about an hour later, I tried to turn on the computer one more time, and it booted with a message - "overclock has failed, system has been...

    Computer just died

    Thanks everyone, looks like I will start with the PSU first. Good thing I have the same PSU for backup so I can just swap it out with all the cables in place. If it is the mobo then I am in trouble. I have 5 nvme drives and 6 sata drives that I don’t know what I am going to do. My knees weakened...

    Computer just died

    So I was in the middle of working and all of the sudden the computer just shut off. I unplugged the power and cable, reset, tried several times, and the computer came on briefly, fans spin for a second, gpu RGB light came on, and then immediately shut off. One time it booted into the bios but...

    Strix 3090 safe temperatures

    I think your fan curve is a bit aggressive. You can tame it down a bit. This is mine -

    Strix 3090 safe temperatures

    Your GPU fan speed is at 100%? Mine gets up to 64% to get to my temp.

    Strix 3090 safe temperatures

    Your temp is fine. Make sure you get plenty of air flow into your case.

    I like that card. It is the xtx variety with higher clock but still air cooled. $2k with the promo code and a free router. Nice for someone who is into AMD side

    This card has been in stock since yesterday. Is there a reason that it is not in your Newegg stock? https://www.newegg.com/asrock-radeon-rx-6900-xt-rx6900xt-ocf-16g/p/N82E16814930057?item=N82E16814930057

    Were they all FEs or various AIBs as well?

    Cryptocoin Value and Market Trend Discussion

    Not really. He tweeted about Tesla and SEC was not okay with it. Tesla and Elon settled with the SEC for $40 millions. Tweeted about Bitcoin and Dogecoin to manipulate the prices. SEC did not care. Anyway, we are really getting off topic here. This thread is to discuss cryptocoin values. Debate...

    Yes, fact. :roll: "Credit default swaps came into existence in 1994 when they were invented by Blythe Masters from JP Morgan. They became popular in the early 2000s, and by 2007, the outstanding credit default swaps value stood at $62.2 trillion. During the financial crisis of 2008, the value...

    I remember seeing on Bloomberg that the Federal Reserves went from 4 trillion to 7 trillion after Covid, so I checked and it seems we only spent 4.5 trillion on Covid, not 6 trillion. https://www.usaspending.gov/disaster/covid-19 I believe in digital currency. However, the fact that we can...

    Cryptocoin Value and Market Trend Discussion

    If I am not mistaken, crypto profit is already being taxed as capital gain. Sure they can tax more, but I doubt it. Too many hedge funds are in it now and there probably will be some lobbying done.

    I was talking about derivative swaps, not derivatives. Read my original post, man.
